Purdue tops Illini to win 7th straight, finish unbeaten at home
It was a fitting display for the two seniors in their final home game. They came off the court to a standing ovation with 3.6 seconds left.
Purdue (25-5, 14-3) finished with a 16-0 record at Mackey Arena and remained in contention for the Big Ten title. Purdue avoided a letdown after Sunday's 20-point win at Michigan State.
Demetri McCamey scored 18 points and Mike Davis added 12 points and 10 rebounds for Illinois (18-12, 8-9). The Fighting Illini shot 50 percent from the field, but Purdue made 11 3-pointers and committed just five turnovers.
