Illinois has college basketball fan culture figured out. They have somehow cultivated one of the most intimidating student sections in the country, and they did the smart thing and put them right on the floor. The Orange Krush is a sight to behold.
They’re doing good work off the court too. The Orange Krush Foundation was established in 1998 and donates half of all money raised to charity. Everything that doesn’t go to ticket costs is given away. That’s fandom done right.
