Illinois holds off Nebraska for badly needed win, 69-57

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) In his last game in his hometown arena, Rayvonte Rice started slow.

The Illinois guard missed three of his first four shots Wednesday against Nebraska. But the Champaign native turned it on in the second half, finishing with 23 points to lead the Illini to a badly needed win over the Cornhuskers, 69-57.

Nebraska started the second half hot and had a five-point lead early, but Rice - with some help from senior Nnanna Egwu and his eight rebounds - led the Illini back.
