Illinois is perfect no more.
Dee Brown had 19 points to lead all five Illinois starters in double figures for the second straight game, and the top-ranked Illini beat Valparaiso 93-56
Richard McBride scored 22 points and James Augustine had 21 to lead No. 14 Illinois to a 74-64 win over Memphis on Saturday night.
If this matchup was left up to Illinois and Wake Forest, it might not have happened. Certainly not on Dec. 1.
