Illinois-Chicago (Gulf Coast Classic)

Monday, November 25th. Estero, Fla. (Germain Arena).

Last Season: 18-16 (7-9 Horizon).

The Flames will serve as San Diego’s opening round matchup in the Gulf Coast Classic tournament. The Flames could see some struggles this season, since their three leading scorers from last season are gone. They will rely on senior forward Hayden Humes (10.3 PPG and 5.2 RPG) to lead the charge this season. A Humes vs. Jito Kok matchup in the paint is an intriguing one.
