Iowa had their best run in the 2nd Half with 17:52 on the clock.

Illinois Falls to Iowa in Overtime

What happened at the State Farm Center Thursday night will be talked about for a long while, too, but for all the wrong reasons.

After the Fighting Illini won both contests against the Hawkeyes last season, these teams will meet for the first time this year.

TV: Tim Brando (play-by-play) and former Illini Stephen Bardo (expert analysis) have the call on FS1.

Over on the IL side, they're sitting at 10-7 this season. Although Illinois was defeated, Trent Frazier fought to keep his team in the game with 27 points, shooting 50% from the field (making 10 of 20 attempts).

Frazier led the Illini with 27 points. Black leads in rebounds with 5.7 while Te'Jon Lucas tops in assists with 3.2 per game.

So does IL coach Brad Underwood. Work to get us back into the game. "That's why experience is invaluable".

Iowa (10-9) and IL (10-8) clashed in Champaign on the evening of January 11 in a battle of winless teams in Big Ten play. Iowa led 4-2 in the infant stages of the game before the Fighting Illini reeled off a 13-0 run to take a 15-4 advantage. "All we talked about at halftime was opening the first four-minute war trying to compete and guard and do what we'd just done". "We cut it at the end of the first half. We've got to put it all together and play a full game of 40 minutes". It was Bohannon's second-highest point total this season and his highest in the Big Ten game. Winless. The Hawkeyes' struggles extended out of conference play, too, with losses to Louisiana-Lafayette and South Dakota State in the Cayman Islands. Sophomore Jordan Bohannon has been a spark plug, averaging 12 points and 5 assists, and freshman Luke Garza has come on strong in recent weeks, getting two Big Ten Freshman of the Week awards, putting up an average of 10 points and 6 rebounds. "Or third, or fourth, or fifth", Underwood said. "We had more intensity than them".

"Until we can guard and quit committing silly fouls 94 feet from the basket by reaching...they've got to learn and they won't out-stubborn me".
