(At) Illinois 89, Detroit Mercy 69: Malcolm Hill led the way for Illinois with 25 points and the Illini took care of business. Illinois (4-0) continued its strong start to the season with another complete game from different players in the opening game of the NIT Season Tip-Off tournament.

The Illini had little trouble scoring, shooting 27 of 52 from the field and 8 of 19 from 3-point range. Friday marked the second straight game the Illini had difficulty shooting from the free-throw line however, finishing 27 of 38.

Tracy Abrams continued to have a strong return to basketball, scoring 15 points and finishing with four rebounds.

Detroit Mercy (1-2) had trouble keeping up with Illinois’ fast offensive pace from the start — the Titans never held a lead.

Josh McFolley and Jaleel Hogan both led the way with 16 points for a team that finished shooting 43 percent from the field and 24 percent from beyond the arc.

The Titans fell behind in most categories against the Illini, but Illinois won the rebound battle 39-29, including 33-25 defensive rebounds.

(At) Oakland 102, Goshen 59: Martez Walker scored 18 of his 21 points in the first half, Sherron Dorsey-Walker added a career-high 20 points and Oakland routed Goshen to open the Great Alaska Shootout.

Up 56-30 at halftime, the Golden Grizzlies (3-0) opened the second half with a 9-1 run in which Dorsey-Walker hit a 3-pointer and continued to pull away. All 11 Golden Grizzlies who played scored at least a field goal and freshman Isaiah Brock (12 points) had his first double-digit game.

Jaevin Cumberland scored a career-high 16 points and Stevie Clark had a career-high 10 assists. Xavier Hill-Mais grabbed a career-high nine rebounds.

The last time Oakland scored 100 or more points was 104 against ETSU on March 29, 2016.

The Golden Grizzlies shot 50 percent from the floor (38 of 76) while holding NAIA member Goshen to 34 percent.

Christian Grider led the Maple Leafs with 19 points in 23 minutes off the bench.

Out West, Valparaiso is at Oregon for the second straight year. The Crusaders have been shaky at times early this year, and they’ll face a very motivated team after the Ducks were drilled by Baylor on Tuesday.
Oregon Has Bigger Issues Than Dillon Brooks’ Health--Rush The Court
Oregon has no time to lick its wounds as undefeated Valparaiso comes to Eugene tonight. The Crusaders are better than your average mid-major but this is still a chance for the Ducks, even without the services of Brooks for another night, to flex their muscles and prove they are a capable team regardless.
