Photo: Illinois Has Added A Court Logo Of Ex-Coach Lou Henson's Famous Orange Blazer

Lou Henson won 423 games as the head coach of Illinois basketball from 1975-1996. The court at the State Farm Center, the home of the Illini, was re-named for Henson last month. 

In fact, not only will Henson's name be on the hardwood at the State Farm Center, but an image of the coach's legendary orange blazer, which he often wore on the sideline, will be a fixture as well.
