CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) - For Illinois’ players, it was a laugher to help them get over a disappointing loss. For coach Lon Kruger, it was a good tuneup for the Big Ten season.
“Bethune-Cookman is not Kansas, but we’re more concerned with our play than with the result,” Kruger said Tuesday night after Brian Cook and Marcus Griffin each scored 18 points as the 20th-ranked Illini beat Bethune-Cookman 97-47.
