Illinois Rallies To Beat IU

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Indiana lost control of a game they were very much in control of in the final minutes and fell to Illinois for the 10th time in their last 11 trips to Champaign, 74-72.

The Hoosiers had a 12-point halftime lead at 41-29. They shot 50 percent for the game, made 9-of-17 three-point attempts and 13-of-14 free throws but still lost to the Illini, losers of six of their last seven coming in. 

D.J. Richardson went on an 8-0 run by himself to tie the game at 70. Illinois then had an inbounds play under their own basket with .9 seconds remaining and converted. 

Tyler Griffey took advantage of a lack of communication by IU's defense, slipping free for a wide-open lay-in at the buzzer to give the Illini the two-point victory over the top-ranked Hoosiers.
