Men's college basketball teams from Illinois went 0-for-13 in selection for this year's NCAA tournament. It was a great time for women, however, as DePaul and Notre Dame both qualified for their postseason AND hosted games.
There are 13 NCAA Division I men's basketball programs in Illinois and not a single one made this year's championship tournament.
But in women's basketball, it's a different story as DePaul (along with Notre Dame in next-door Indiana) not only qualified for their tournaments, they had the opportunity to host games.
