Monday afternoon update

[DEC. 6, 2004]  According to the national media, the writers have voted the Illinois Fighting Illini into the No. 1 spot in this week's AP Top 25. This marks the third time in school history the Illini have reached the top spot and comes in the throes of a yearlong festival celebrating 100 years of Illinois basketball.

The Illini won't have to wait long to take the court as the nation's most elite team, as they will entertain Chicago State tonight at the Assembly Hall at 7:05. [Game notes]
