Men's basketball: Sterling grad Bertrand shines, Illini survive Gardner-Webb
CHAMPAIGN – Tyler Griffey’s first-half stat line was all but empty – no points, no assists, no rebounds and little to show he’d been on the court as Illinois struggled to get a handle on underdog Gardner-Webb on Sunday.
But with 4.4 seconds left on the clock, the Illini turned to the senior forward and he came through, burying a long 3-pointer on a feed from Brandon Paul to pull out the win, 63-62.
The Illini (7-0) overcame a first half in which they shot 33 percent from the field.
