Illini Buzzer-Beater Upsets No. 1 Hoosiers, 74-72

The Illini (16-8, 3-7 Big Ten) trailed 41-29 at halftime and by double digits for most of the second half before closing the game on a 13-2 run over the final 3:36.

With the score tied, Indiana’s Victor Oladipo turned the ball over and recovered to block a breakaway layup by D.J. Richardson out of bounds with less than a second to play.

Griffey, who was open after setting a screen, took the inbounds pass from Brandon Paul with .9 seconds left and gently laid the ball into the basket. Hundreds of Illinois students rushed the court.

The Hoosiers (20-3, 8-2) took over the top spot in The Associated Press’ Top 25 on Monday.
