A Knight with Benny

The Chicago Christian/Illiana Christian boys basketball rivalry is special on its own, but when you add Benny the Bull to the mix...

The Chicago Christian boys' basketball team dropped a 58-53 decision to Illiana Christian last Friday night in a non-conference game in Palos Heights, but the school's gym was packed for its 5th annual Whiteout Game that featured an appearance by Chicago Bulls mascot Benny the Bull.
