EVANSTON — The road has been a lonely place for Illinois basketball the last few years. The Illini picked up their first true road win in more than a year Tuesday night, beating Northwestern 68-61.
“It feels great,” Illinois senior Malcolm Hill said. “To get this win on the road especially it shows a testament to how together we were. To start the last three minutes we were down and there were times that we could have wilted or got nervous under pressure but we did a great job of maintaining ourselves.”
The win also snapped a three-game losing streak for the Illini, who remain in 13th place in the Big Ten standings with a 4-8 record.
