A good showing on offense (and free-throw shooting) was lost to a lacking defensive effort as Illinois (10-13, 2-8) went down at home to Purdue Saturday afternoon. E'Twaun Moore had 24 points for the Boilermakers. Up next is the long-awaited home showdown against Indiana Thursday night. Recap. Game thread.
