Illini fall in overtime at home to Iowa

Illini Blows 20 Point Lead Loses in OT Cook scores 21 for Iowa

Although Illinois was defeated, Trent Frazier fought to keep his team in the game with 27 points, shooting 50% from the field (making 10 of 20 attempts).

On the season, IL basketball averages 78.9 points, 37.4 rebounds and 14.3 assists per game. Frazier's seven threes were the most by an Illini in a Big Ten game since Brandon Paul made eight against Ohio State 1/10/2012. One of Maryland's biggest strengths was getting to the charity stripe. Playing at home for just the third time in the last month, the Illini have the advantage - even if students won't be back until the next home game (Jan. 22 against Michigan State). It was Bohannon's second-highest point total this season and his highest in the Big Ten game.

IL pushed the pace with 9 points off of fast breaks versus an opposing 4 points off of fast breaks. 3-Point Goals-Iowa 7-24 (Bohannon 5-12, Baer 2-5, Garza 0-1, Dailey 0-1, Cook 0-1, Moss 0-4), IL 14-30 (Frazier 7-11, Jordan 4-8, Williams 1-2, Nichols 1-2, Alstork 1-2, Smith 0-2, Finke 0-3). Of the Hawkeyes' 14 games that accepted bets, nine have finished over the projected point total. Iowa moves to 10-9 overall, 1-5 in Big Ten action.

Illinois Fighting Illini freshman guard Trent Frazier already had a monster game on Thursday night against the Iowa Hawkeyes even before he buried a game-tying 3-pointer at the buzzer to force overtime.

The Hawkeyes came out on top in overtime, 104-97, for their first conference win of the season. IL had a better effective field goal percentage (0.553 vs. 0.454).

Iowa's second-biggest comeback took place on January 14, 1987, also in Champaign, Ill.




On the road, Iowa is 3-5-1 ATS with 6 overs and 3 unders.

IL ranks 46th in assists allowed per game (11.5) while Iowa ranks 182nd (14.7). Back then, the Hawkeyes and Fighting Illini were archrivals and every game was outstanding.

IL ranks 34th in steals per game (8.0) while Iowa ranks 162nd (5.4). The Hawkeyes made their last five baskets while the Illini missed their last three and had three turnovers in the last 2:17.

Iowa ranks 29th in rebounds per game (40.0) while IL ranks 97th (37.4).

IL is 2-2 ATS with 3 unders and 1 over over their last five games. The Hawkeyes committed 31 turnovers but overcame those miscues with sharp shooting from Kent McCausland, who sank five 3-pointers.

Amanze Egekeze, a 6-foot-, 8-inch senior forward, poured in 29 points - three shy of his season best - to spur the Bruins, now 6-0 in their series against the Cougars. Cook, a Chaminade graduate here in St. Louis, scored 21 points in the game.
