BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Trent Frazier scored 23 points, Kofi Cockburn added 17 and No. 18 Illinois surged in the second half to beat Indiana 74-57.

The Fighting Illini have won four straight overall and the last two on the Hoosiers’ home floor. Illinois is 17-5 overall.

Race Thompson had 13 points and Xavier Johnson added 12 for Indiana, which fell to 16-6.
