    ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Andre Curbelo scored 11 of his 17 points in the first half, and No. 4 Illinois dismantled No. 2 Michigan with a smothering defensive performance, routing the Wolverines 76-53 on Tuesday night. Playing again without injured star Ayo Dosunmu, the Illini (19-6, 15-4 Big Ten) kept Michigan from clinching the conference title and boosted their own chances at a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. Trent Frazier led Illinois with 22 points, and Kofi Cockburn added 12. Eli Brooks scored 11 points and was the only player in double figures for Michigan. The Wolverines (18-2, 13-2) looked physically overwhelmed for much of the night, unable to create good shots against the Illinois defense and unable to keep the Illini off the boards. It was an eye-opening blowout — especially since Michigan has rolled to similar margins of victory against other good teams this season....
    CHICAGO (AP) — Marquise Kennedy scored 16 points, and No. 21 Loyola Chicago hung on to beat Southern Illinois 60-52 on Friday night. The Ramblers (20-4, 15-2 Missouri Valley Conference) steadied themselves in the closing minutes after letting a 16-point lead shrink to four and came out on top for the 13th time in 14 games. They also reached 20 wins for the fourth straight year, a streak that started when the 2017-18 team went 32-6 and made the Final Four. Braden Norris scored 13 and made three 3-pointers. Cameron Krutwig added 11 points, six rebounds and four blocks as the Ramblers extended the nation’s fifth-longest active home win streak to 21 games. They also tied the program record for conference victories. Steven Verplancken led Southern Illinois (11-12, 5-12) with 17 points. Lance Jones scored 14 points while making 4 of 8 3-pointers, but the Salukis lost their 14th in...
    Fox News anchor Dana Perino has broken down in tears following an interview with an Illinois woman whose 18-month-old son was shot dead by her estranged husband. The heart-wrenching interview was conducted by Perino, 48, during Thursday's edition of America's Newsroom.  Perino was discussing Illinois Governor Jay Pritzker's recent decision to end cash bail for pretrial detainees, before she conducted a remote interview with Cassandra Tanner Miller. Cassandra told Perino that, in September 2019, her estranged husband, Christopher Michael Miller, broke into her home in Joliet, Illinois while he was out on an 'I-bond' while awaiting trial on three counts of aggravated felony battery.  'For those that don't know what an I-bond is, it's a no cash bail bond,' Cassandra explained.  Cassandra then horrifically recounted how she was brutally beaten by Christopher before he pulled out a gun and fatally shot their 18-month-old son ten times before turning the gun...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Christyn Williams broke out of a slump with 19 points and No. 2 UConn overcame another slow start to beat Georgetown 64-40 on Friday night for its sixth consecutive victory. Williams was 8 of 19 from the field and sparked a 16-2 run that turned the game around. Her layup midway through the second quarter put the Huskies (16-1, 13-0 Big East) ahead, and they didn’t trail again. Bueckers grimaced while playing 39 minutes on a sprained right ankle. Despite the injury, the standout freshman had 19 points and nine assists, ending a streak of six games scoring at least 20. Georgetown (1-10, 1-10) lost its ninth in a row. Freshman Kelsey Ransom led the Hoyas with 15 points. NO. 8 UCLA 69, UTAH 58 SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Michaela Onyenwere had 25 points and seven rebounds in UCLA’s victory over Utah. Chantel Horvat added 14...
    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Illinois coach Brad Underwood challenged his defense at halftime. The 12th-ranked Fighting Illini responded like champions. Trent Frazier scored Illinois’ final 10 points in regulation and put the Illini ahead with a free throw in overtime, and the defense took care of the rest in a 75-71 victory over Indiana on Tuesday night. “It was the first time in a while I’ve been really, really upset with my basketball team at halftime,” Underwood said. “Giving up 41 points in the first half is not real conducive to winning on the road. We looked lost. It was just real lethargic and they whipped us (inside). But we responded.” Emphatically. Frazier finished with 19 points and Kofi Cockburn added 16 points and 10 rebounds. But Illinois wouldn’t have won its third straight — or for the first time since 2010 on the Hoosiers’ home court — without a...
    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Trent Frazier scored No. 12 Illinois’ final 10 points in regulation, and the Fighting Illini gave up only one basket in overtime to outlast Indiana 75-71 on Tuesday night.

Trayce Jackson-Davis had 19 points and 14 rebounds for the Hoosiers (9-8, 4-6), who have dropped two straight. Race Thompson had 18 points and eight rebounds.

But Frazier tied it with two 3-pointers and twice put Illinois ahead from the free-throw line. Indiana tied it at 68 on Armaan Franklin’s layup with 30.5 seconds left. In...
