DeKALB, Ill. (AP) -- Hayden Humes scored 18 points and Daniel Barnes added 11 points and eight rebounds to lead Illinois-Chicago to a 58-46 victory against Northern Illinois 58-46 on Tuesday night.
 
   Gary Talton and Josh Crittle had 10 points each for the Flames (5-1), who have won five of the last six games between the teams.
 
   Sam Mader scored 15 points for the Huskies (1-4), who shot just 32.7 percent (16 of 49) from the floor.
 
   Northern Illinois trailed 27-19 at the break but cut the deficit to five points midway through the second half. But Humes scored five points and Talton four during a 10-2 run that gave Illinois-Chicago a 48-35 cushion with 6:52 remaining, and the Huskies got no closer than seven points the rest of the way.
 
   Humes shot 7 of 8 from the field, with two 3-pointers.
