Abrams Scores 29, Illinois Beats Auburn 81-79

CHICAGO (AP) - Tracy Abrams scored a career-high 27 points and No. 12 Illinois beat Auburn 81-79 on Saturday.

The Illini (13-1) saw an 11-point lead shrink to one in the closing minutes but they prevailed after falling to Missouri in the Braggin' Rights game a week earlier - their first loss under coach John Groce. Things got real tense when Frankie Sullivan buried a 3 for Auburn (5-7) to make it 68-67 with 4:29 remaining.

Illinois then hit 13 of 18 free throws the rest of the way for a rare win at the United Center, where they had dropped three straight and five of six after winning 18 in a row.
