    CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) - Tyler Griffey scored 17 points and Tracy Abrams had 15, leading Illinois to an 89-64 win over St. Francis (N.Y.) Monday night.

    Brandon Paul added 14 points and six assists for the Illini (2-0).

    Akeem Johnson led St. Francis (1-1) with 13 points, Ben Mockford added 12 and Jalen Cannon had 11 rebounds.

    Illinois couldn't shake the Terriers early, but closed the first half on a 15-0 run to take a 45-25 lead. The Illini held St. Francis scoreless for 7:11 during the spurt.

    Illinois had only eight turnovers, something that concerned first-year coach John Groce during exhibition play.
