At times, it felt like there were more turnovers and missed shots than points for both teams but in the end, IL outlasted Austin Peay in a 64-57 win at State Farm Center Wednesday night. After a string of lackluster performances, the senior led IL with 17 points and 8 rebounds.

IL has now won 12 consecutive non-conference home games. The Govs had chances into the final minute but couldn't get one last dagger to fall, dropping a hotly-contested 64-57 contest to the Fighting Illini at the State Farm Center. IL committed 25 turnovers in the game, a number that Underwood does not care for very much.

Austin Peay led by four points with 5:53 minutes left in the second half before IL responded with an 18-7 run to close the game.

IL struggled shooting from the three-point line, only making 2 of 13 shots from beyond the arc.

He just got up each day and made himself better. Austin Peay gets a 10-day break before playing Evansville on December 16.

Austin Peay would lead by as many as five with 9:02 remaining in the contest, on the heels of a 9-3 run that saw Ugba slam home a SportsCenter-worthy dunk and freshman Dayton Gumm rain in a well-time three-pointer.

The Illini improved their lackluster shooting in the first half with a 50 percent second half to finish just under 40 percent (21-of-53) for the game. "I don't know if we came out flat but we didn't have enough energy and that's something that Coach Underwood kept challenging us with at halftime, in timeouts". Two others, including Ogba, collected four fouls for the Governors. UNLV defeated Oral Roberts 92-66 on Tuesday evening at the MGM Grand Garden Arena and come into the game with the Illini at 7-2 overall. The game will also be broadcast locally on WDAN-AM 1490 and WDNL-FM 102.1, as well as statewide on the 47-station Fighting Illini Sports Network.
