CHAMPAIGN, Ill. - It was a record-setting night at State Farm Center - just not the kind of history Illinois was hoping to right.  No. 12 Michigan led from wire-to-wire en route to an 84-53 win.  The 31-point margin of victory is the largest by any visiting team in State Farm Center history.  Michigan shot 56% from the field and nearly 70% from 3-PT range.  The Wolverines hit 16 threes. That ties a State Farm Center record.  Illinois (17-13, 6-11) was led by Rayvonte Rice's 16 points and nine rebounds.  Illinois will finish up the regular season Saturday at Iowa.
