(25 News Now) - For the first time since 1988, Illinois State basketball played a game inside historic Horton Field House on Saturday afternoon and their homecoming was a successful one. A late second-half push lifted the Redbirds to a 77-71 win over SIU-Edwardsville in front of a raucous Horton crowd that included Hall of Famer and ISU all-time leading scorer Doug Collins. The Redbirds were paced by Darius Burford’s 20 points while Bloomington native Colton Sandage poured in 16 for the Redbirds who have now won three straight games.
