Indianapolis, IN (SportsNetwork.com) - Tracy Abrams scored 25 points to lead the Illinois Fighting Illini to a 64-54 win over the Indiana Hoosiers in first-round action of the Big Ten Tournament at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Rayvonte Rice added 13 points for the ninth-seeded Illini (19-13), who will advance to take on top-seeded Michigan in the quarterfinal round on Friday.

Yogi Ferrell scored 14 points and Will Sheehey added 13 points for the eighth- seeded Hoosiers (17-15), who stayed close with the Illini, but couldn't get over the hump in the second half.

Down 38-33 early in the second half, the Illini went on a 15-2 run to take the lead. Ekey's three-pointer with 8:42 left capped the surge and gave Illinois a 47-40 cushion.

Austin Etherington hit a layup with 3:13 left to draw the Hoosiers within 53-52, but after the Illini came up empty on the other end, Noah Vonleh attempted a jumper but was blocked by Nnanna Egwu at the 2:32 mark that would've given Indiana the lead.
