Hill's 21, Lucas block help Illini hold off Iowa 70-66

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) John Groce spent the off-week with his team focused on toughness and togetherness. It's already paying off.

Malcom Hill scored 21 points and hauled down eight rebounds and Illinois held on for a 70-66 win over Iowa on Saturday. The Illini took the lead in the final minutes on a Hill layup and fended off several Iowa chances late to win their second true road game of the season.

"We gave great effort," Groce said. "It took every ounce of that effort to come out of here with a win. They showed great mental and physical toughness. That's what I'm most proud of."
