Illini flying high after winning Maui title

"Unbelievable," said Tyler Griffey, one of several Illini heroes against Butler. "I haven't had this much fun playing basketball in a long time. A happy flight home, that's what I'm thinking."

Happy, indeed.

Tournament MVP Brandon Paul led Illinois with 20 points. Tracy Abrams added 17 and Griffey and all-tournament selection D.J. Richardson scored 14 each. Richardson also had nine rebounds and four assists.
