ILLINOIS def. INDIANA, 7-5

The Illini finish the Big Ten season 15-9 and share the title with Michigan State after the Spartans dropped a 6-5 decision to Northwestern on Sunday, but Illinois will be the No. 1 seed in next week's Big Ten Tournament because of its series victory over MSU earlier in the season.
