CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) - Malcolm Hill led Illinois with a career-high 16 points and added six rebounds in a 107-66 victory over Austin Peay on Friday night.

A 13-2 run midway through the first half pushed the Illini's lead to double-digits and Austin Peay (1-3) never threatened in the second half. Five players reached double figures for Illinois (3-0).

Illinois started slow and scored just six points in the game's first five minutes. The Illini relied on a barrage of threes offensively, hitting seven in the first half and 14 for the game.

Chris Horton led Austin Peay with 13 points. 

Illinois was able to limit Austin Peay's strong frontcourt. Chris Horton and Chris Freeman each averaged over 16 points per game entering the contest but were stifled for much of the game. Freeman added six points on 1-of-7 shooting.  

KENT, Ohio (AP) - Kris Brewer scored 17 points and went 3 for 3 from long range Friday night to lead Kent State to a 74-51 win over Southern Illinois in the opening round of the Men Against Breast Cancer Classic.

Kent State (3-0) opened with a 9-2 spurt fueled by Jimmy Hall to take a lead it wouldn't lose and pulled steadily away, taking a 43-28 advantage into the break and continuing to pull away in the second half, shooting 51 percent from the field and hitting 10 of 18 from beyond the arc.

Hall added 16 points, Derek Jackson had 12 and Devareaux Manley 10 as the Golden Flashes cruised to their first win over Southern Illinois (1-2) in the three meetings between the programs since 2005.

Sean O'Brien and Anthony Beane led Southern Illinois with 12 points apiece, and Jordan Caroline had 11.

SALEM - The Salem Lady Wildcats overcame a slow start and forced 28 turnovers as they ran out to a 19-point, second-half lead before finally defeating Olney 53-42 to open up play in the 14th annual Salem Thanksgiving Tournament.

Salem trailed midway through the opening quarter before taking a 14-10 advantage after the first 8 minutes. The Lady Cats tightened up their defense in the second quarter outscoring Olney 17-4 to lead 31-14 at the break. Dearria Watson started slow, but finished with a game-high 16 points.  Kailey Beer was all over the place forcing several turnovers and finishing on both ends of the court for her 15.  Emily Baer also played a nice game with 10 points. Sydney Holst played well, especially defensively and sister Shelby dished out several highlight reel assists.  Julie Luna scored her team-high 10 points...all in the games final 9 minutes.  Taylor Rauch added 9.

In the first game Friday night, Highland beat Carlyle 63 to 28.
