Men's Hoops Hill Sprints Featured by DNAInfo Chicago
Sept. 25, 2013
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.
