We’re only a few weeks away from Selection Sunday, and there’s only a handful of games left for teams to pick up signature wins. This weekend, some did, and some didn’t.
D.J. Richardson scored 18 points to lead Illinois to a 62-41 victory over Northwestern on Sunday night. Tracy Abrams added 13 points off the bench for the Illini (19-8, 6-7 Big Ten), who have won four straight and got revenge for a 68-54 loss to Northwestern last month.

Prior to Sunday’s tip vs. Ohio State, Wisconsin’s Ryan Evans was listed as questionable due to illness. Evans started despite being under the weather, and it’s a good thing he did. Not only did he help No. 20 Wisconsin beat No. 13 Ohio State, the senior provided one of the best individual highlights of his career with a remarkable second-half putback. Watch the dunk now and see the Twitter reaction to it in this post.
Glenn Robinson III was mired in a slump entering Sunday’s game versus Penn State. Averaging just 4.5 points and shooting 29 percent in the previous four games, Robinson went a perfect 6-of-6 from the field in Michigan’s 79-71 win. Playing aggressive again, five of Robinson III’s buckets were slams, including a few of the highlight-reel variety. Watch the freshman’s dunk-a-thon that helped him tie a career high with 21 points now.
