CHICAGO (AP) Reggie Smith scored a career-high 23 points on 7 of 13 shooting and added 6 assists to advance Eastern Illinois to an 86-66 win over the University of Illinois-Chicago Saturday.

After Marc Brown's jumper with 11:11 left in the first half trimmed the Eastern Illinois lead to 14-13, the Panthers (2-1) used a 17-2 run to pull away and maintained its lead for the duration of the game. EIU shot 57.1 percent from the floor and made 9 of 14 3-pointers and took a 40-27 lead into halftime.
