Augustana to play at Illinois in November.

Augustana Basketball to take on Illinois this November.

ROCK ISLAND, Ill. - The Augustana Vikings Basketball team will play Illinois on November 22 in Champaign.

With four starters and a host of key reserves back from last year’s NCAA Division III national runner-up squad, there should be plenty of excitement surrounding Coach Grey Giovanine’s Augustana men’s basketball program this winter.

Adding to the anticipation is today’s announcement of a contest versus the University of Illinois.

The Vikings and Illini will square off at the State Farm Center in Champaign, Illinois on Wednesday, November 22 with game time yet to be determined. Giovanine’s outfit finished 24-9 a year ago, earning a share of its eighth CCIW title in the last 15 seasons and advancing all the way to the championship game of the NCAA Division III Tournament. Augustana came up one basket short of its first national title, falling 79-78 to Babson.
