Overview

Fans of Illinois basketball spent the 2004-05 season celebrating the program's 100th anniversary, with hopes of making something very special happen during the historic centennial season. They got their wish, beginning with an early December victory over top-ranked Wake Forest giving the Illini the number-one ranking in America, a position they would never relinquish for the remainder of the season. The magic continued, with the team's second-straight outright Big Ten championship, an emotional championship in the Big Ten Tournament, the overall number-one seed in the NCAA Tournament, national honors for Coach Bruce Weber, and an amazing run to the 2005 Final Four, highlighted by the ?Revival in Rosemont,—when the Illini overcame a 15-point deficit with four minutes to play to defeat Arizona in overtime for the Chicago Regional championship, a game widely considered to be one of the greatest ever played in college basketball history.
