The No. 6 seed The OverLooked will take on the No. 11 seed Heartfire in a first-round game at 4 p.m. July 24. If The OverLooked advances to the second round, they will face the winner of Boeheim’s Army (Syracuse alumni) and Force of Seoul at 6 p.m. July 26. The third and final game of the Illinois Regional will take place at 6 p.m. July 28. TV broadcast information will be announced soon.
