Richardson gives Illinois 78-77 OT win over Hawaii

HONOLULU (AP) -- D.J. Richardson drained a 3-pointer at the
overtime buzzer, capping a comeback from a 16-point second-half
deficit and giving Illinois a wild 78-77 victory over Hawaii on
Friday night.

Richardson's buzzer-beater followed one by Hawaii's Vander
Joaquim, who hit a jumper at the end of regulation to force
overtime. Before that, Brandon Paul's basket with 2:08 to play
had given the Illini (3-0) their first lead of the game.

The teams traded baskets in the extra session before Jace Tavita
made one of two free throws to give the Warriors (3-1) a 77-75
lead with 7 seconds left and set the scene for Richardson, who
finished with 16 points.

Brandon Paul scored 25 points, including five 3-pointers, for
Illinois, and Tracy Abrams added 22. The Illini improved to 7-0
against Hawaii.

Joaquim led the Warriors with 22 points and 11 rebounds, and
Brandon Spearman added 20 points and nine boards.
