ACC/Big Ten near miss
The Big Ten kept its record of futility at a perfect 0-10 in this year's ACC/Big Ten Challenge. But the six-games-to-five loss at least was close enough that the Big Ten won't be subjected to the disrespect it has experienced in the more lopsided years. That's of little consolation to Illinois, which led Clemson by eight at halftime before losing 76-74. ``It's disappointing,'' Illini coach Bruce Weber said. ``We had our chance. We could have made the difference. We had a winnable home game.''
