Illinois beats Bradley 81-55
ILLINOIS 81, BRADLEY 55

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) -- John Ekey scored 19 points and grabbed
seven rebounds on Sunday as Illinois cruised to an easy 81-55
victory over previously unbeaten Bradley.

The 6-foot-7-inch Ekey hit five of seven from the three-point
line. Junior guard Ravonte Rice scored 13 points, and Tracy
Abrams added 12.

Tyshon Pickett had a game-high 21 points for Bradley (4-1). Walt
Lemon Jr., the Braves' leading scorer with 18.3 points per game
coming into Sunday's contest, added 12.

Illinois out-rebounded Bradley 49-25, and had more offensive
rebounds (10) in the first half than Bradley had defensive (9).

The Illini led 34-19 at the half, and held Bradley to 28 percent
field-goal shooting in the first half. Illinois ended up
shooting 47.5 percent from the field for the game, while Bradley
shot 36 percent.

Late in the first half, Bradley's Xzavier Taylor fouled Rice,
and both were awarded technical fouls after they each complained
loudly.

Illinois played its fourth game of a five-game home stand, and
opens 4-0 for the third consecutive season. Bradley had been
aiming for its first 5-0 start since 2006-07.

The two teams are separated by about 90 miles on Interstate 74.
Illinois leads the series 13-3, but Bradley won the last meeting
72-68 on a neutral court in 2009. The last time Bradley won in
Champaign was Dec. 14, 1929.

Sunday's game also saw Bradley coach Geno Ford go up against
younger brother Dustin Ford, an assistant to Illinois coach John
Groce.

Both head coaches also offered their thoughts and prayers to the
victims of Sunday's outbreak of tornadoes across central
Illinois, which caused widespread damage and injured several
residents throughout the Peoria and Champaign areas.

Illinois squares off against Chicago State at home Friday, while
Bradley travels to Arizona State on Friday.
