Two Sons, Two Tournaments
The focus this past week in Illinois basketball has been on Bruce Weber. Bruce lost his mom during the Big ten Basketball Tournament. Illinois went on to win the tourney and clamp on to a great chance to win a national title.
Mrs. Weber has another son who is also a basketball coach.
Dave Weber is the head coach at Glenbrook North High School. On the day Mrs. Weber passed, Dave's team won a 1 point sectional final game. Tonight, behind 48 points from Jon Scheyer, Glenbrook North defeated Waukegan 70-58 to win the Loyola Supersectional and a spot in the IHSA Elite Eight.
Regardless how either team does from here on out, I hope that Mrs. Weber know this: Her sons and their students have done very well. Wish you were here to see it.
