What happened last time?

Jan. 2, 2021: Illinois 66, Purdue 58

When Andre Curbelo hits the floor, good things happen for Illinois.

In a game that featured four runs of double digits, the Illini used a 20-5 run — sparked by Curbelo’s fifth straight game with five or more assists — in the second half to hold off the pesky Boilermakers, beating Purdue, 66-58.

Despite Twitter head coaches begging for the freshman to be featured in the starting lineup, the playmaker was quick to show his appreciation for his current role.

“I actually like coming off the bench,” Curbelo said.
