Brandon Paul and D.J. Richardson made shots when it counted as Illinois beat Colorado, 57-49, in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Illinois came up with an 18-5 run, which was sparked by back-to-back three-pointers from Richardson and Paul.

The effort pushed the Illini into a third-round East Regional match with the Miami Hurricanes Sunday.
