Illinois at San Antonio vs. Utah

Watching SA Spurs vs. Utah Jazz, and Illinois Basketball showed up very well. Deron Williams was dominating much of the game, double teamed, and still came through strong. Checking out to tie his shoes, here came the Illini, with Dee Brown spelling Williams in the 4th quarter.
Even more Illinois connections, as Proviso East 1992 AA Champ leader Michael Finley, played well for the Spurs, and McLeansboro's Jerry "Spider" Sloan coached Utah. Just when you thought there was nothing from Wapella in the game, I noticed that 1983 WHS Wildcat Tony Parker was playing guard for the San Antonio Spurs.
Congrats Spurs on pulling this one out.

Layup: Tony Parker from Wapella's name on back of shirt per sparkly lettered print shop in Clinton or B-town?

3 Pointer: Did Wapella's Tony Parker ever date one of the Desparate Housewives?
