Illinois Tops Gonzaga in Clash of Unbeatens, 85-74

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. -- Two unbeaten teams.  A combined record of 18-0.  Something had to give.

Brandon Paul scored 35 points as #13 Illinois beat #10 Gonzaga 85-74 Saturday night at the McCarthey Athletic Center.  The loss ends Gonzaga's school-record 9-0 start.

The Zags got a balanced scoring attack from its starting five, with all but one starter scoring in double figures.  But Kelly Olynyk's team-high 16 points and 8 rebounds were offset by six turnovers as Illinois improved to 10-0 on the season.
