NORMAL, Ill. - Illinois State head basketball coach Tim Jankovich announced that the Redbirds will host an intrasquad scrimmage Nov. 3, at 7 p.m., on Doug Collins Court at Redbird Arena. The event is free to the public and parking is available in the Turner Lot, east of Redbird Arena.

With seven players who have never played in an NCAA Division I basketball game, Jankovich and his staff will continue to try to acclimate this inexperienced Redbird team prior to the start of the season.

Picked to finish sixth in the annual Missouri Valley Conference Preseason Poll, the Redbirds return two starters and seven letterwinners from last season's 22-11 team. Illinois State will host another exhibition game Nov. 10 against Quincy, before opening the season Sunday, Nov. 14 against SIU Edwardsville.
