COLLEGE PARK, Md. (WCIA) -- Bloodied and bruised in its first Big Ten battle, No. 16 Illinois was one play away from erasing a 12-point deficit and completing the comeback at No. 22 Maryland. The stars did not align though for the Illini in College Park, as a Jahmir Young 3 was the final dagger in a deafening Xfinity Center on Friday. As tough as the loss is to take for the young Illini, they say it provides some much needed experience.
