MICHIGAN def. #15/15 Connecticut, 68-63
Michigan looked like the team it expected to be while No. 15 Connecticut struggled -- again.

Zack Novak made a tiebreaking three-pointer with 1½ minutes left and Manny Harris followed with a layup to power the Wolverines to a 68-63 win over the Huskies on Sunday.

The Wolverines (10-7) earned the signature win they needed in a season that started with them ranked 15th, coming off their first NCAA tournament appearance since 1998. They'll have to finish the season very strong to earn another bid, but beating Connecticut could prove to be important.

Verdell Jones made a 12-foot jumper with 32.8 seconds left to give Indiana the lead in overtime and freshman Christian Watford made two free throws to seal the Hoosiers' 81-78 victory over Minnesota on Sunday.

Jones finished with a career-high 24 points, while Watford had 16 points and 10 rebounds.

Indiana scored the last eight points to end a three-game losing streak and students streamed onto the court afterward. The Hoosiers (8-9, 2/3 Big Ten) have now won more conference games than they did all of last season.
