What happened last time?

January 2, 2021: Illinois 66, Purdue 58

When Andre Curbelo hits the ground, good things happen for Illinois.

In a game that featured four double-digit streaks, the Illini used a 20-5 streak — sparked by Curbelo’s fifth straight game with five or more assists — in the second half to fend off pesky Boilermakers, beating Purdue, 66 -58.

Despite Twitter’s head coaches begging for the rookie to be included in the starting lineup, the playmaker was quick to show his appreciation for his current role.

“I really like coming off the bench,” Curbelo said.
