While the score didn't allow John Groce to give Illinois' seniors the appropriate curtain call Saturday, the Illini faithful was able to give its favorite seniors a standing ovation during the pregame Senior Day festivities. Watch Illinois honor Tyler Griffey, Sam McLaurin, Brandon Paul and D.J. Richardson now.

Paul and Richardson scored 14 and 13 points, respectively, to lead Illinois to the 72-65 win.
