D.J. Richardson's three-pointer at the buzzer gave Illinois a wild 78-77 overtime victory over Hawaii on Friday night.
Richardson's buzzer-beater was the second of the night, as Hawaii's Vander Joaquim hit one at the end of regulation to send the game to overtime after Illinois had erased a 16-point second half deficit.
Hawaii (3-1) controlled most of the overtime period, leading by as many as five before several missed free throws allowed Illinois (3-0) to have a chance to tie or win it at the end.
Joaquim led the Warriors with 22 points and 11 rebounds, helping Hawaii dominate Illinois on the boards, 44-28. Chicago product Brandon Spearman added 20 points and nine rebounds for the Warriors.
