Illinois 71, Nebraska 51: 'D.J. was unbelievable'

"It's a big win to get this one on the road, especially after what happened to us here last year," D.J. Richardson said of Nebraska's 80-57 thumping of the Illini last year that left some in tears.

There were no tears Tuesday, just smiles and high-fives outside an Illinois locker room where a dozen fans dressed in orange and blue gathered to congratulate the players.
