Recap: Indiana vs. Illinois

Bloomington, IN (SportsNetwork.com) - Kevin Ferrell scored 17 points and handed out five assists as the Indiana Hoosiers took down the Illinois Fighting Illini, 56-46, in Big Ten Conference action at Assembly Hall.

Also scoring in double figures for Indiana (13-7, 3-4 Big Ten) was Stanford Robinson with 10 points on 5-of-12 shooting from the floor, while Noah Vonleh pulled down a game-high 14 rebounds for a team that snapped a two-game slide.

The Illini (13-8, 2-6), losers of six in a row, were led by Rayvonte Rice with a game-high 20 points on 4-of-7 shooting behind the 3-point line. Unfortunately, while Rice was shooting 7-of-11 from the floor, the remaining four starters for Illinois combined to make just 7-of-28.

A triple by Rice less than two minutes into the meeting gave the visitors a three-point advantage, but after that Indiana took over and eventually grabbed a 26-24 advantage at the break. The Hoosiers shot a mere 1-of-6 on the perimeter through the first 20 minutes of action, Illinois was 3-of-12.

The Hoosiers opened the second half on a 14-5 run and never looked back, even as they connected on just 11 field goals in the frame.

The hosts dominated the glass, 42-28, limiting Illinois to just four rebounds at the offensive end of the floor. It also helped that Indiana outscored the Illini by a 13-5 margin at the free-throw line.
