STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- D.J. Richardson scored 20 points and
Illinois staved off a Penn State rally from a double-digit deficit
in a 77-67 win Wednesday night to snap the Illini's three-game
But a nearly 5-minute Penn State scoring drought gave Illinois
(13-8, 5-3 Big Ten) another opening. Despite some choppy play, Mike
Davis' jumper and Dominique Keller's buzzer-beating fall-away gave
the Illini a 59-53 lead with 4:03 left.
Demetri McCamey's 3 from 20 feet with the shot clock winding
down extended the lead to 10 with 2 minutes to go.
It was another crushing loss for the Nittany Lions (8-12, 0-8).
Their winless streak in conference play is the school's worst Big
Ten start since 2003.
