Teague scored 15 points to help No. 25 Purdue snap 20th-ranked Illinois' 23-game home winning streak with a 58-54 Big Ten Conference triumph at Assembly Hall.
First-year Illini coach Bruce Weber was an assistant to Keady for 19 seasons, including 18 at Purdue, from 1980-98.

James Augustine had 16 points and 12 rebounds for Illinois (10-3, 1-1), which had gone 45-1 in its last 46 home games, with the only loss coming to Michigan State on February 3, 2002. Dee Brown, voted by the media as preseason Big Ten Player of the Year, added 14 points but made only 5-of-15 shots.
