    Illinois earns first-round bye for Big Ten tournament

    Associated Press

    CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- Demetri McCamey scored 22 points and Mike Davis added 13 to lead Illinois past Indiana 72-48 Saturday.

    The win gives the Illini (19-12, 9-9 Big Ten) a .500 record in conference play and improves their resume for a spot in the NCAA tournament. It also gives Illinois a first-round bye in the Big Ten tournament next week in Indianapolis.

    Illinois never trailed and opened up a 19-point lead at 34-15 on a McCamey layup with just over six minutes left in the first half.

    The lead grew to as much as 29 at 72-43 late in the second half on a bucket by reserve Joseph Bertrand.

    The Hoosiers (12-19, 3-15) were led by Verdell Jones' 12. Jordan Hulls was held to four points after scoring 18 in a win over the Illini in their last meeting in January.

    Davis added nine rebounds.
