CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- Demetri McCamey scored 19 points, including the game-winner at the buzzer, to lead Illinois to a 72-70 comeback win over Indiana on Saturday.

The victory put Illinois (14-8, 6-3) into a tie for second in the Big Ten with Wisconsin. It also kept the Illini's NCAA tournament hopes alive.

McCamey hit the winner on a running jumper at the buzzer. He took a pass from Bill Cole and drove the right side of the lane before launching the shot.

Mike Tisdale added 12 points. That included four key free throws in the final two minutes.

Indiana (9-11, 3-5) was led by Champaign native Verdell Jones, who scored 22. They included eight points in a late-first-half run that turned a 32-20 Illini lead into a 36-36 tie at the half.
