Illinois gets its revenge against Northwestern

"I thought we were really active, really locked in and really focused," coach John Groce said. "We felt like we got carved up in Game 1. Guys took a little pride in defending better."

Northwestern (13-13, 4-9 Big Ten) endured a painful span of more than nine minutes without scoring as Illinois (19-8, 6-7) used a 26-0 run between the halves to build a 45-15 lead, much to the delight of the Illini fans who made up at least half of the crowd.

The Welsh-Ryan Arena crowd erupted in sympathetic and mocking cheers when James Montgomery III hit a shot that ended a span of 11-plus minutes without a field goal.
