[AUG. 18, 2003]  TALLINN, Estonia -- Illinois improved to 4-0 on its European tour with a 101-78 win over Kalev Tallinn Basketball Club on Saturday. Six Illini players scored in double figures, led by Deron Williams with 21 points and Dee Brown with 19.

"We were very balanced offensively tonight," said head coach Bruce Weber. "Deron played very well on both ends of the court and shot the ball well. Luther played well after struggling the last time out, and Dee scored 19 even though he didn't shoot particularly well. Aaron Spears played his best game of the trip so far. Their inside guys were physical, and Aaron stepped up to the challenge. Again, we played well in transition, which is what we want to do."

Illinois lost the battle of the boards for the first time on the trip, by one rebound, as Nick Smith led the Illini with six rebounds. Following Williams and Brown in the scoring column were Luther Head with 14 points, Spears with 12, James Augustine with 11 and Roger Powell with 10. Head added five assists for the game. Illinois ended up shooting 52.8 percent from the field.
