IL vs. Iowa - 1/11/18 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction

IL forced overtime on a heroic one-handed floater by freshman Trent Frazier as time expired, but the Hawkeyes won the extra period 14-7 for their first conference win of the year.

Iowa's 20-point comeback was the third-largest in school history, right behind a 22-point deficit against IL in 1987 and a 23-point comeback against Gardner-Webb in 2012. It was Bohannon's second-highest point total this season and his highest in the Big Ten game. Thursday's game marked the Hawkeyes' first Big Ten victory, and dropped the Illini to 0-5 in conference play.

Garza scored 13 of his 19 points in the last five minutes of regulation and in overtime as the Hawkeyes showed tremendous resilience. "It was huge, no doubt". In the opening 10 minutes the hosts extended a lead of 32-16, then hitting a high of 20 points, 49-29, at 3:53 after a Trent Frazier three.

The Hawkeyes managed to hold on from there, much to the chagrin of IL coach Brad Underwood, whose team has blown big second-half leads before.

"I said 'This just gives us a chance to win by 10 instead of just 3, "' he said.

The second half and overtime belonged to Garza and Ryan Kriener.

Tyler Cook scored 21 points and Luka Garza added 19 for Iowa.

By points, the biggest comeback in school history was on November 17, 2012, in a home game against Gardner-Webb. Still, at halftime the Illini led 54-41, but they chose the wrong half to put up an outrageous number.

Iowa outscored the Fighting Illini, 14-7, in the bonus frame after Illinois' Trent Frazier hit a runner from 3-point range with under a second remaining to send the game to overtime.

Cook said he looked around at his teammates' eyes in the huddle prior to the overtime period and knew the game was in hand. "Well, nothing that smart".

"Until we can guard and quit committing silly fouls 94 feet from the basket by reaching ... they've got to learn and they won't out-stubborn me. They did, and I am really proud of my guys tonight".

"That's a good team", SIUE Head coach Jon Harris said of the Bruins. "We weren't going to lose". You don't accept losing. January 11 marked the first time the Hawkeyes scored 100 or more points in a Big Ten game since 1995 and the first time doing so on the road in conference play since 1988.

Freshman Luka Garza was a non-factor in the first half against IL on Thursday, scoring two points and grabbing five rebounds in 14 minutes.

Jordan Bohannan's 3-point dagger that essentially took the air out of the State Farm Center crowd, not to mention the IL team, coaches and bench.

Bohannon led all scorers with 29 points, making 7-of-16 field goals, including five 3-pointers, to go along with a 10-for-10 night from the free throw stripe.

Frazier's 3-pointer at the buzzer to send the game into overtime was so close the referees spent almost two minutes studying the replay before awarding Frazier his basket, at which point State Farm Center exploded in cheers.

The Hawkeyes stayed close and got IL in foul trouble, eventually taking the lead with 3 minutes to play.

Over on the IL side, they're sitting at 10-7 this season.

The Illini owned a 54-41 lead at the break as they shot 54 percent from the field - including 9-of-15 on 3-pointers. Iowa led 4-2 in the infant stages of the game before the Fighting Illini reeled off a 13-0 run to take a 15-4 advantage.

Junior forward Leron Black posted 18 points before fouling out and junior guard Aaron Jordan added 18 points off the bench.
