The University of Illinois was about to unveil new renovations to their State Farm Center, but a storm slowed down those plans by flooding the area floor. But the Fighting Illini say have no fear...

Construction workers immediately provided labor for the cleanup, removing water and mitigating damage by installing fans to help dry the concrete floor. The basketball court also has been taken apart and elevated on wood blocking to help it dry. The condition of the court will continue to be evaluated over the next few days. In the event that the court is damaged beyond repair, the University of Illinois Division of Intercollegiate Athletics is prepared to secure an alternate playing surface.
