Zach Edey poured in 28 points with eight rebounds as No. 3 Purdue rallied for a 77-71 victory over No. 12 Illinois on Tuesday night in Champaign, Ill., to clinch a second straight outright Big Ten regular-season title.

After going just 1 of 6 from 3-point range in the first half, Purdue drilled 8 of 10 attempts from long range after halftime to become the Big Ten’s first back-to-back champs since Ohio State in 2006-07.

Marcus Domask paced Illinois (22-8, 13-6) with 20 points. Coleman Hawkins recorded 13 points. The Illini led by as many as 10 points in the first half, but they shot just 36 percent in the second half and missed all six of their 3-point tries.

No. 7 North Carolina 84, Notre Dame 51

The Tar Heels claimed at least a share of the Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season title with a win against the Fighting Irish in Chapel Hill, N.C.

Sean East II scored a game-high 21 points for Missouri (8-22, 0-17), which has dropped 20 of its past 21 games. Missouri needs a victory in its regular-season finale Saturday at LSU to avoid going winless in conference play.
