Illini’s Adonis Breathing In the Hawaiian Air

New Illini big man Adonis De La Rosa’s hashtag tells you everything about his appreciation for the Maui Invitational and for the opportunity to play college basketball at all.  The skilled 7-footer with an advanced basketball IQ recovered from an ACL tear he suffered last year when he played for Kent State.  He’s a graduate transfer and should be up to full strength by midseason.  He could be a two-way force inside for the Illini.  For the moment, though, Adonis is just enjoying a sweet, Hawaiian breeze.
