Illinois 72, Indiana 48

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Indiana make it a perfect 0-fer on the road on Saturday, completing the regular season with a 72-48 loss to Illinois.

Indiana has not won a game on the road since Jan. 21, 2010 against Penn State.

The game was not bad — it was worse. The Illini, who lost to the Hoosiers in Bloomington earlier this season, scored 46 points in the first half (it scored 49 in the first meeting) and led by 19.

The Illini led by as much as 29 during the game, and forced Indiana into its worst offensive showing of the season. The Hoosiers shot 31.6 percent for the field — including 1-of-15 from Christian Watford and Jordan Hulls.

Demetri McCamey had 22 points to lead all scorers, and Mike Davis had 13 points and nine rebounds.

The Illini, who may have secured an NCAA Tournament bid with the win (they are now 19-12 overall and 9-9 in the Big Ten), shot 54.3 percent from the field in the first half, including 5-of-11 from 3-point range. They did not play the second half with the same level of energy, but it hardly mattered.

With the loss, Indiana finishes in last place in the Big Ten and will be the No. 11 seed in next week’s Big Ten Tournament. The opponent is still to be determined, but the game will be at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
