OT Needed for Gonzaga to Defeat Illini in Chicago
CHICAGO (AP) -- Steven Gray scored 20 points, Elias Harris and Robert Sacre added 19 apiece and Gonzaga rallied to beat Illinois 85-83 in overtime Saturday after blowing a big lead.

Harris scored on a reverse layup with 12 seconds left in overtime to break an 83-83 tie. Illinois' Brandon Paul then missed a 3-pointer, preserving the win for Gonzaga (11-3).

Illinois trailed by as many as 21 in the first half and led by eight in the second but needed a 3-pointer by Dominique Keller in the closing seconds of regulation after a miss by Demetri McCamey to tie it 79-79.

In overtime, Paul and McCamey each hit a pair of free throws to make it 83-80 before Matt Bouldin (18 points) tied it at 83 with 1:34 left.
