Big 10 Tournament: Iowa Hawkeyes vs Illinois Fighting Illini

Matt Gatens scored 20 points to help Iowa defeat Illinois 64-61 Thursday in the first round of the Big Ten tournament in what might have been the final game for Illini coach Bruce Weber.

Speculation has been that Weber would be fired after the season. The Illini closed the regular season having lost eight of nine, with their only win coming against Iowa.
Illinois nearly saved Weber for at least another day — D.J. Richardson missed a 3-pointer in the closing seconds that would have tied the score.
