“We’re proud to share this honor with the City because of the tremendous support we receive from DeKalb,” said NIU President Lisa Freeman.  “The making of a great team has a lot to do with how individual members feel about the school and the town they represent, and I can tell you that these young men and their coaches are very much ‘Proudly DeKalb.’
