CHICAGO (AP) - Rayvonte Rice led a furious second-half comeback on Saturday, scoring 28 points as the University of Illinois beat the University of Illinois-Chicago 74-60.

Trailing by 10 at halftime, the Fighting Illini went on an 8-0 run over the first 1:04 of the second half to erase the deficit and seize momentum.

Rice scored seven points in 58 seconds a few minutes later to turn a two-point deficit into a five-point lead -Illinois' first lead of the game.

Rice hit 10-of-16 shots from the field and grabbed 7 rebounds while Tracy Abrams scored 16 points, and Joseph Bertrand added 14 for Illinois (11-2), which has won four of its last five.

Kelsey Barlow scored 21 for UIC (5-9), which shot 62.1 percent in the first half, but just 26.1 percent in the second.
