Site owner of Illinois-Basketball.com. We cover boys and girls basketball across the entire state of Illinois. Local sports coverage has decreased dramatically in recent years. For example, the Chicago Tribune has cut its prep coverage by two-thirds, and the Sun-Times no longer covers girls basketball. We aim to highlight the great basketball played in our state, track scores and standings, and tell great stories. Help us grow the game we all love! Currently, all expenses for the site (hosting, marketing, articles, scoreboard management) come out of my own pocket. I've invested more than $3,000 and hundreds of hours into this site, and advertising has covered only $152.65 of that as of 12/30/2021. Any help is appreciated!
