Late Run by Illini Takes Care of Wofford
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) -- Demetri McCamey scored 21 points and No. 20 Illinois used a second-half run to beat Wofford 78-64 in the Las Vegas Invitational Tuesday night.

The Illini (4-0) were in a tight game before using a 28-12 spurt in the second half to put the game away.

After trailing for most of the first half, a 17-7 run in the final 4:09 capped off by a buzzer-beating 3-pointer by McCamey gave Illinois the 42-39 halftime lead. He scored seven in that spurt, including a four-point play.

The Illini trailed the Terriers until D.J. Richardson's 3-pointer gave them a 33-32 lead with 2:01 left in the first half. Richardson finished with 15 points, hitting five 3-pointers.

The Terriers have played well against big time conference teams, beating Georgia on the road and losing a close game at Pittsburgh.

Junior Salters (2-3) led Wofford with 15 points.
