HEARD ON WGIL: Illini Upsets #13 Wisconsin in Big 10 Tournament
POSTED 3:53pm, UPDATED 4:01pm 3/12/10 INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Mike Tisdale scored 21 points and Demetri McCamey had 13 as fifth-seeded Illinois hung on for a 58-54 upset of No. 13 Wisconsin in Friday's Big Ten tournament quarterfinals.

The Fighting Illini (19-13) now face No. 5 Ohio State in Saturday's semifinals. The Buckeyes advanced with a last-second 69-68 win over Michigan.

Wisconsin (23-8) was led by Trevon Hughes and Jon Leuer, each with 14 points. Hughes led a frantic flurry in the closing minutes that got the Badgers in position to force overtime. But Jason Bohannon's 3 with 15.9 seconds left clanked off the front of the rim, Mike Davis grabbed the rebound for Illinois and the Illini hung on.

The Illini now play Ohio State Saturday at 12:40pm. You can hear the broadcast beginning at 12pm on AM 1400 WGIL.
