UIC's season ended just short of a championship as a furious rally from down 16 points in the second half came up just short in a 76-71 loss at Northern Colorado in the CIT championship game Friday night (March 30). Marcus Ottey scored 21 of his 25 points in the second half and Tarkus Ferguson added 13 points and 10 rebounds. Ottey, Ferguson and Tai Odiase were named to the CIT all-tournament team. The Flames ended the season at 20-16 overall and saw their school-record nine-game road winning streak come to an end. For more details, plus game notes, click "News" on the left side of the page.
