Illinois 84, Chaminade 61

  •  

LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) - Joseph Bertrand had a season-high 14 points as Illinois beat Division II Chaminade 84-61 on Tuesday night to advance to the final of the Maui Invitational.

Brandon Paul scored 13 points, D.J. Richardson had 11 and Tyler Griffey added 10 as the Illini denied the tournament's host school a chance at shocking the college hoops world on consecutive nights. Illinois (5-0) shot 49 percent from the field and never trailed.

Illinois will play Butler on Wednesday night for the tournament title. Butler took down the eight-team field's only ranked team earlier Tuesday, beating No. 9 North Carolina 82-71.

Chaminade (3-2) will play UNC in the third-place game. The tiny Catholic school became a trending topic on Twitter after a rout of Texas on Monday night.
