Alabama takes down Illinois 79-58 in NIT 1st round

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) Levi Randolph had 20 points, seven rebounds and four assists to help Alabama rout Illinois 79-58 on Tuesday in the first round of the NIT.

Alabama (19-14) played its first game without head coach Anthony Grant, who was fired Sunday afternoon and replaced by interim coach John Brannen.

"We were playing for more than just ourselves tonight," Brannen said. "This is coach Grant's program as I've mentioned many times. He's asked us to carry it on in terms of going forward and we're going to do that to the best of our abilities."
