Kofi Cockburn and Damonte Williams recorded double-doubles and 15th ranked Illinois overcame a horrid day at the free throw line to hold off Purdue, 66-58 in Big Ten play.
The win keeps the Illini perfect at home at 6-0 with a visit to state rival Northwestern on Thursday.
It was another slow start for Illinois (8-3, 4-1), which managed just one field goal and 4 points in the first 5:30 of the game. But Ayo Dosunmu sparked a 10-0 run with six points and Cockburn capped off the spurt . . .
