Saturday, December 6, 2008. (AP) -- Demetri McCamey set the tone, scoring 13 of his 19 points in the opening eight minutes, and Illinois cruised to a 76-42 victory over Georgia at the United Center on Saturday.

McCamey hit two 3-pointers, a three-point play and two more baskets as the Illini (7-1) grabbed an early 19-6 lead and remained in control the rest of the way. Up seven at halftime, they outscored the Bulldogs 46-19 in the second half to run away with the victory.

Mike Davis and Mike Tisdale scored 14 apiece and Dominique Keller added 11 as the Illini rebounded from a two-point loss to Clemson on Tuesday.

Although its out-of-conference schedule provides no opportunities for an eye-opening victory, Illinois has not suffered the kind of head-turning losses that marked last season. They fell to Miami (Ohio) and Tennessee State, then dropped their first four Big Ten games a year ago.
Now, they appear to be in better shape.
