 RAYCOM TO TELECAST 15 ILLINOIS BASKETBALL GAMES
 CHARLOTTE, N.C., Nov. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Raycom, the nation's leading


independent sports programmer, will telecast 15 University of Illinois regular season games for the 1991-92 basketball season.
 The Fighting Illini enter the season with a young but talented group of players led by sophomore center Deon Thomas, who is regarded as one of the best low-post players in the Big Ten. Last season Illinois posted its ninth consecutive 20-victory season and placed third in the Big Ten.
 Dick Martin will be the play-by-play announcer, with Steve Kelly providing the color analysis.
 Raycom, based in Charlotte with offices in New York, Chicago and Dallas, is a specialist in regional networks for college sports. Last year, Raycom carried 334 college basketball games on an over-the-air network covering 80 percent of the country.
