COL BKB: Illinois 81, Auburn 79

Dec. 29, 2012 at 4:48 PM   |   Comments

CHICAGO, Dec. 29 (UPI) -- Tracy Abrams pumped in 29 points Saturday, propelling No. 15 Illinois past Auburn 81-79 in a game decided at the free throw line.

Abrams sank 12 foul shots -- including three in the final 21 seconds -- and added seven rebounds, four assists and three steals for the Illini (13-1).

Illinois' free throw accuracy made up for its cold shooting from 3-point territory (4-of-14) as the Illini bounced back from their lone loss of the season to Missouri last week.

Frankie Sullivan scored 21 points off the bench, including five treys, to lead the Tigers (5-7).
