Richardson's 30 inspires Illini

"We were really active on the glass, especially in the first half," Groce said. "I thought our rebounding, our effort overall, our communication and our execution was better. Richardson was terrific at both ends of the floor.

"D.J. also had to chase (Nebraska guard) Ray Gallegos all night and he didn't let him get anything easy (Gallegos was 2-for-8 and scored 5 points).

"I thought it was as good a performance as we've had all year because it was both ends of the floor and it couldn't happen to a better guy."
