Illinois held its annual basketball Media Day at the Bielfeldt Athletic Administration Building and Ubben Basketball Complex on Wednesday. New Illini head coach John Groce held a press conference for over 30 media members at Bielfeldt, where he spent 25 minutes taking questions and addressing the state of the team heading into the first official practice on Friday evening.

While the Groce was talking to the media, Illini players, decked out in their orange uniforms, had their video head shots taken at the Illini Productions studio. Following the press conference, the players and staff gathered at Ubben for their team photo, and then the players did interviews and took photos for media members on the practice floor for about 45 minutes.
