Update on Matt Bollant

UW-Green Bay’s former women’s basketball coach, Matt Bollant, is enjoying success in his first year at the University of Illinois. The Illini are 15-9 overall, 8-4 in the Big Ten and tied with Purdue and Michigan for third place in the conference standings with four league games remaining. In the five seasons pre-Bollant, Illinois had finished ninth, ninth, ninth, eleventh and, once again, ninth. The Wisconsin Badgers, who reportedly passed on Bollant two years ago when their top job was open, became the team’s latest victim on Monday night in a 60-53 loss at Assembly Hall.
