Nebraska 68, Penn State 64
Behind a career-high 29 points from freshman Shavon Shields, Nebraska snapped a five-game losing streak with a 68-64 win over Penn State Saturday afternoon. Shields enjoyed a career afternoon in front of the national television audience, hitting 10-of-11 shots from the field and going 8-for-8 from the foul line, as he eclipsed his career high for the second straight game. His 29 points against the Nittany Lions was one off Nebraska's freshman record for points, and the 6-foot-6 forward added six rebounds. RECAP

Michigan State 59, Ohio State 56
Keith Appling made two free throws with 7.9 seconds left and finished with 15 points to help No. 18 Michigan State beat No. 11 Ohio State 59-56 on Saturday night. The Buckeyes had a chance to potentially tie the game in the closing seconds, but Shannon Scott didn't come close on a running 3-point attempt. Deshaun Thomas, who scored a career Big Ten-high 28 points, was upset Scott didn't pass him the ball. Thomas wanted a shot to send the game into overtime after he had made six 3-pointers in regulation. RECAP

Iowa 70, Wisconsin 66
It was a good thing the University of Iowa men's basketball team built a 20 point first half lead and led by 16 at the half because Wisconsin kept coming. The Badgers outscored the Hawkeyes by 12 points in the second half and got it to within a single possession at 66-63 with 22.5 seconds remaining, but Iowa held on for the 70-66 victory on Mediacom Court inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena to hand Wisconsin its first Big Ten loss.
