    The UIC men's basketball team was recently featured by DNAInfo Chicago for their unique preseason training methods.  For six consecutive Tuesdays, starting in mid-August, the Flames can be seen at Chicago's famous sledding hill that sits just south of Solider Field.  The team arrives together around 6:30 a.m. and proceeds with a strenuous set of hill sprints.  Each week the squad adds two additional sets to the workout, culminating with 20 sprints on the final Tuesday.
