Austin Peay Men's Basketball loses hard fought game to Illinois Wednesday night

The Illini (7-3) shot just 39.6 percent from the field and made just 21 field goals, but it was enough to snap a three-game losing streak.

Michael Finke led the Illini with 17 points and 8 rebounds, while Leron Black posted 16 points and 4 rebounds.

"Honestly I've worked the hardest this offseason that I've ever worked and right I've worked the hardest I've ever worked", said FInke. Black did, however, have 5 turnovers in the game, something he attributes to his aggressive style of play. The Governors pressured the ball, forcing 25 Illini (7-3) turnovers, just one shy of the all-time IL record at the State Farm Center.

Give him the ball. IL committed 25 turnovers in the game, a number that Underwood does not care for very much.

In his first career start, Williams finished with five points, four rebounds and a team-high three steals. Defensively, Illinois was strong and limited Austin Peay to 41.4 percent shooting (15.4 percent from deep).

The Governors were led by freshman Terry Taylor and senior Averyl Ugba.

A 10-day hiatus will find the Govs through exams and well into December before they hit the hardwood again.

"We're happy with the win, first and foremost, glad we were able to gut it out", IL forward Michael Finke said.

It was the first lineup change IL has made to the starting five this season. "I know I should be able to make that shot". "He knew our moves, and we knew his", Underwood said about the flow of the game with both coaches knowing a great deal about what the other was going to try and do.

Illinois, off to an 0-2 start in Big Ten play, travels to Las Vegas on Saturday to face Nevada-Las Vegas.

Illinois: The Illini are back in action Friday night at UNLV. The game will also be broadcast locally on WDAN-AM 1490 and WDNL-FM 102.1, as well as statewide on the 47-station Fighting Illini Sports Network.
