Jody Victor : Ohio State Tramples Over Illinois 69-53

Jody Victor: There was no postgame party after beating Illinois this time. Ohio State still has six games to play.

Jamar Butler scored 22 points, Terence Dials had 19 and 15 rebounds, and Je'Kel Foster added 18 points to lead the 19th-ranked Buckeyes to a 69-53 victory over No.10 Illinois on Sunday(Feb 12).

A year after ruining top-ranked Illinois' perfect, 29-0 season on Matt Sylvester's 3-pointer with 5.1 seconds left, the Buckeyes relied on their outside shooting and Dials' muscle inside to win their fourth straight game and remain in a virtual tie for first place in the Big Ten.

Go Bucks!
