Illini plan to honor Bulls rookie Dosunmu on Jan. 6
Bulls rookie Ayo Dosunmu will return to Champaign on Jan. 6 to be honored by the University of Illinois. He'll be the 34th player in program history to join the Illinois Basketball Honored Jerseys program during the game against Maryland.
Last season, Dosunmu averaged 20.1 points, 6.3 rebounds and 5.3 assists, while leading the Illini to a Big Ten tournament title and a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
Chosen in the second round by the Bulls this summer, the South Side native has been a pleasant surprise so far this season, making his second NBA start on Wednesday in Cleveland.
