Killingsworth scored 20 of his 23 points in the second half and also had 12 rebounds, one assist and four blocks. But Wilmont was every bit as impressive. He tied a season high with 17 points, matched his career-high with nine rebounds and sparked an 18-0 first-half run that gave Indiana the momentum it needed. After the game, Hoosiers fans poured onto the court, setting off a celebration that even Killingsworth joined. “I jumped right in there because I ain’t used to seeing that,” said Killingsworth, a fifth-year senior who transferred to Indiana from Auburn. “So I jumped in there with them.” For Illinois, it was a rare bad night. The Illini entered Tuesday with 55 wins in their last 57 regular-season games. They’d beaten Indiana five straight times and have now lost to only four Big Ten teams since Jan. 24, 2004 – Iowa, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Indiana. Shaun Pruitt led the Illini with a career-high 17 points. Brian Randle had 15 and James Augustine 11. Dee Brown, Illinois’ top player, was limited to five points but had 11 assists before fouling out. Illinois has now lost two of its last three, while Indiana has won 11 straight conference games at home. “Marco’s a good player and sooner or later he’s going to get some things,” Illinois coach Bruce Weber said. “In the first half we did a good job fighting him, but it’s tough. He’s just good.” At No. 5 Texas 80, Texas Tech 46 LaMarcus Aldridge scored 19 points and grabbed seven rebounds to lead the Longhorns. Brad Buckman recovered from his latest leg injury to add 16 points and nine boards for Texas (15-2, 3-0 Big 12), which has won seven straight. Jarrius Jackson led the Red Raiders (10-8, 2-2) with 21 points. Tech coach Bob Knight is 2-8 against Texas in his five seasons with the Raiders. At No. 8 Villanova 73, Seton Hall 64 Randy Foye scored 19 points, Kyle Lowry had 14 and the Wildcats survived another tight one. Villanova (12-2, 3-1 Big East) got 12 points from Will Sheridan, the only true frontcourt player in its four-guard starting lineup. At No. 12 West Virginia 64, Providence 48 Kevin Pittsnogle scored 18 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to help the Mountaineers win their 11th consecutive game. It is the school’s longest streak since winning 22 in a row during the 1988-89 season. West Virginia (13-3, 5-0 Big East) is also off to its best start in the league since joining 11 years ago. Mike Gansey added 18 points for West Virginia. At St. John’s 68, No. 17 Louisville 56 Eugene Lawrence matched his career high with 18 points and the Red Storm shook off a horrid first half to beat the Cardinals. Lawrence scored the Red Storm’s first 12 points of the game and he had 14 at halftime as the Cardinals took a 32-28 lead despite St. John’s shooting just 25 percent (5-for-20). No. 21 Boston College 63, at Holy Cross 53 Craig Smith scored 19 to surpass the 2,000-point milestone, and had a career-high 17 rebounds at the Eagles recovered from his slow start to beat the Crusaders. Smith, the school’s first preseason All-America selection, came into the game with 1,998 career points. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
