When Frazier flushed a 3-pointer from the top of the key with 3:53 to go in the first half, he gave IL a 49-29 lead and pushed the host's 3-point percentage to.727 (8-of-11) for the half.

IL set season highs in points in a half (54), field goals made in a half (20) and three-pointers made in a half (9) in the first half.

IL rode Black for 14 points in the first 10 minutes of the second half, but he picked up his fourth foul with 9:27 left and took a seat again with IL up 74-72.

Iowa led 90-87 with 5.2 seconds remaining when Frazier took the inbounds pass, drove the court, crossed up Maishe Dailey, and hit a runner with under a second remaining to send the game to overtime.

Frazier led the Illini with 27 points. Jordan Bohannon of Iowa led all scorers with 29 points. The Hawkeyes are also 0-2-2 ATS in the last four following an ATS loss and 0-5-1 ATS in their last six versus the Big Ten.

Freshman Luka Garza was a non-factor in the first half against IL on Thursday, scoring two points and grabbing five rebounds in 14 minutes. The Panthers defeated the visiting Tigers 66-59 in their second overtime game this season.

The woman exited the home and officers confirmed the initial report of a shooting and hostage situation was false, police said. Police in Calgary said on Tuesday that charges of mischief and fraud had been laid against Tyler Raj Barriss, 25.

At one point in the second half, Garza scored 8 straight points, as the Hawks improved to 1-4 in the Big. Pace knocked down a free-throw halfway into the overtime period giving the Panthers the final lead of the game and secured their second victory of the season.

The Hawkeyes had 17 offensive rebounds, turning them into 18 second-chance points.

Both teams are in fairly dire need of a win simply to escape what is now a shared Big Ten cellar. Black and Aaron Jordan added 18 points each.

The Tigers had three players record double-figures. Tia Wooten was 10-of-10 from the free throw line and finished with a double-double of 18 points and 11 boards. Iowa, meanwhile, did a terrific job of making free throws (17-22; 77.3 percent). The Cougars dropped to 6-10 overall and 2-3 in the conference. Playing at home for just the third time in the last month, the Illini have the advantage - even if students won't be back until the next home game (Jan. 22 against Michigan State).

"I don't know what it is about the second half, " Underwood said in a tense postgame news conference. "Belmont is very good at what they do and very sound. First half was fun to watch, not so much the second". He had played well up until that point, and he was looking for the opportunity. Starters Jalen Henry (11 points), Justin Benton (10 points) and Christian Ellis (eight rebounds, seven points and three assists) also contributed to the cause.
