What happened last time?
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Welcome back, Andre Curbelo.
It took two overtimes, but Illinois’ comeback fell just short on Monday afternoon as Purdue handed the Illini their first conference loss of the season in a thrilling 96-88 matinee at State Farm Center.
Despite late heroics from the sophomore guard to force the first and second overtimes, the Boilermakers were too much for the Illini in the second overtime period.
