Comeback falls short as Illini drop heartbreaker to Gonzaga in OT

A sellout crowd of 20,917 was on hand at the United Center in Chicago on Saturday to watch Illinois fall 85-83 in overtime to Gonzaga at its home away from home.

Despite the fact that Gonzaga was coming off a late game on Thursday with a long flight from Spokane, Wash. and playing a contest that started at 10 a.m. Pacific time, the Bulldogs had the Fighting Illini on the ropes early.
