It's not pretty, but Illinois beats Penn State

Illinois side-stepped a potentially damaging loss Thursday night, surviving a free throw contest that masqueraded as a basketball game.

In a game marked by 52 personal fouls and 52 attempted free throws, D.J. Richardson scored 18 points and Brandon Paul became the 10th player in school history to pass the 1,500-point mark as Illinois escaped Penn State 64-59 for its fifth straight victory.
