Rankings from AP Poll

The 1924–25 Illinois Fighting Illini men's basketball team represented the University of Illinois.

Regular season[edit]

The 1924–25 season for Fighting Illini coach, Craig Ruby, had an identical record both overall as well as within the conference as the previous season. Both seasons finished with overall records of 11 wins and 6 losses with 8 wins and 4 losses within the conference. The 1924–25 Fighting Illini, however, would place in a tie for third place within the conference. This campaign would produce a crossroad for the Fighting Illini's program. Huff Hall's construction would be completed in 1925 and this season would be the Illini's final full season in Kenney Gym.[2] The starting lineup included captain John Mauer, Jack Lipe and Leonard Haines at guard, T.D. Karnes and Russell Daugherity at forward, with Hollie Martin at center.[3]
