Here's what Illinois coach Bruce Weber said after Indiana's 52-49 victory.
"We knew they would come out with great energy. They had a tough defeat on Sunday to Iowa out there and I know he challenged them, whether it was tweets or the newspapers or whatever.
"…We had some opportunities down the stretch, and we just didn't get baskets down. So credit to them, they played their hearts out. We lost (Jordan) Hulls a couple of times, he's a gutsy little guy. And then (Christian) Watford, he creates a pretty tough matchup for anybody."
