The Latest
Chase Audige scored 24 points as the Wildcats won their third straight. Their 15th win matched last season’s total.
It wasn’t pretty in the fourth quarter — the Bulls watched a 25-point lead slip to five — but they took some baby steps to pull off the victory. It’s still a “little disturbing,” point guard Goran Dragic said.
Juniors Cam Cerese, Dennasio LaGioia and Tommy Rochford led the Lancers to the win against one of the best teams in Fenton school history.
Tyler Kolek had 24 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds for the Golden Eagles, who moved into a tie with No. 13 Xavier atop the Big East.
Mayer tied his career high with five three-pointers and Jayden Epps added 13 points for the Fighting Illini, who have won six of their last seven.
