Familiar face joins Bollant's staff at Illinois
Celeste Ratka has a new last name and that’s not the only switch for her.
The career path of the former University of Wisconsin-Green Bay women’s basketball star is changing as well.
But even though she won’t be draining three-pointers, she’s sticking with the game of basketball.
Ratka, known during her playing days as Celeste Hoewisch, is transitioning into coaching. She has retired as a player after a year of professional basketball in Europe and has joined University of Illinois women's basketball coach Matt Bollant’s staff as the program’s video coordinator.
