BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -Eric Gordon and No. 10 Indiana stuck it to Illinois again.
The high scoring freshman, who reneged on an oral commitment with the Illini and signed instead with the Hoosiers, had 17 points and Indiana rallied from a seven-point deficit in the second half to beat Illinois 62-58 Sunday.
It was Indiana's 10th straight victory and 27th in a row at home.
Big Ten rebounding leader D.J. White, coming off 21 points and a career-high 22 rebounds in a win at Michigan on Tuesday, added 15 points and 10 boards, and Armon Bassett had all 11 of his points in the second half for the Hoosiers (14-1, 3-0). Shaun Pruitt led Illinois (8-9, 0-4) with 14 points.
No. 22 Rhode Island 80, Duquesne 78
SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (AP) - Will Daniels matched a season-high with 28 points and Jimmy Baron hit a fadeaway jump shot with 3.2 seconds left to give Rhode Island a come-from-behind win.
Baron's shot put Rhode Island (15-2, 1-1 Atlantic 10 Conference) up by one point with 3.2 seconds left, and Kahiem Seawwright hit a foul shot to seal the win in the Rams' conference home opener.
Reggie Jackson led four Duquesne players in double-figures, scoring 19 points. Kojo Mensah and Gary Tucker scored 14 apiece for the Dukes (11-4, 1-1 A-10).
Oregon 71, No. 23 Stanford 66
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Maarty Leunen scored 16 points, and Oregon used an 8-0 run in the final two minutes to beat Stanford.
Malik Hairston and Tajuan Porter each added 15 points for the Ducks (12-4, 3-1), who beat the Cardinal (13-3, 2-2) for just the third time in 13 meetings. The win also keeps Oregon undefeated in eight games at home this season.
Porter, whose 3-point shooting was instrumental in the Ducks' run to the NCAA tournament regional finals last season, was removed from the starting lineup three games ago. He had made just one of 16 3-point attempts in conference play prior to Sunday's game. But he came up big for the Ducks in the final two minutes with four points and a steal, and finished 6-of-13 from the field overall.
Brook Lopez tied a career high with 26 points for Stanford, though he was held to just six points on 2-of-7 shooting in the second half.
