A Nice Tribute to Lou

In case you haven't heard, the Champaign City Council and the Mayor passed a resolution last night to rename a section of First Street that runs by Assembly Hall as Lou Henson Court. Illinitalk believes this was a well deserved honor for Coach Henson, who recently retired from coaching New Mexico State due to health concerns. He spent 21 years at Illinois and still watches every game the Illini play (He even taped the Illinois games if they were on the same night that his NMSU team was playing so he could watch them later). Lou and his wife, Mary, are planning to be back in Champaign this weekend for the celebration of 100 years of Illini basketball. This fan won't be there in person but will be giving him a standing ovation when they show him on TV. Thanks for all you did for Illini basketball Lou and best wishes!
