''All you can ask is for an opposing coach or players to say `You guys played really, really hard and out toughed us.' ''It's another milestone victory for the resurgent Illini (14-5, 6-2 Big Ten), winners of five straight.They're off to their best conference start since 2005-06, ended a seven-game losing streak at Mackey Arena and swept the season series with Purdue for the first time since 2008-09.And after an atypical start to the game, Underwood got his team to follow a more common theme over the final 20 minutes.

''Illinois' fight is so much better than ours. Free Sports Picks Forum. They have a great competitive spirit.'' BIG PICTUREIllinois: The Illini pulled off a rare feat by winning a Big Ten road game. And the reason is obvious - defense travels. Illinois came into the game allowing 57.3 points as teams shot just 36.6% from the field and 31.1% on 3s during their previous four wins. They weren't quite as good Tuesday, allowing Purdue to shoot 41.1% from the field and 37.5% on 3s - but they were more than good enough.Purdue: The Boilermakers keep struggling to score, and it caught up to them again on Tuesday. After scoring only 37 points in the first meeting with Illinois, the Boilermakers couldn't reach the 60-point mark on their home court until the final minute. If coach Matt Painter can't find a solution soon, with the midway point of conference play fast approaching, it could be an even tougher final two months.STAT SHEETIllinois: Ayo Dosunmu finished with 18 points and a career high 11 assists.
