Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Indiana's hope of making a late run to the NCAA tournament ended in round one of the Big Ten tournament with a 64-54 loss to Illinois at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

The Hoosiers regrouped after falling behind 9-0 and trailed 30-28 at halftime.  They hit 6-of-10 three-point attempts in the first half, but made just 2-of-13 inside the arc. 

A quick six points to start the second half gave Indiana a 34-30 lead.  They built it to five at 38-33 on a jump-hook by Freshman Devin Davis, but the Illini scored the next 11 to seize the lead for good.

Eighth-seeded Indiana (17-15) fell to 10-17 all-time in the conference tournament.  The ninth-seede Illini (19-13) is now 6-2 against the Hoosiers in this event.

Tracy Abrams led Illinois with 25 points and 7 rebounds.  Indiana was led by Yogi Ferrell's 14. Will Sheehey had 11 of his 13 in the first half.
