U-M led by 11 midway through the second half, before the Wildcats cut it to one late; but the Wolverines hung on in their final home game to close out the season with a 13-4 mark in Ann Arbor. On the offensive end, Michigan senior forward Rachel Sheffer scored a team-high 17 points to go with six rebounds.

Darryce Moore added 12 points off the bench and Ameryst Alston eight points for the Buckeyes, who made 19 of 24 from the free throw line. RECAP 

Iowa 75, Indiana 70
On a night when the UI program honored seniors Morgan Johnson, Trisha Nesbitt and Jaime Printy, a sophomore sharpshooter came off the bench to score a team-high 22 points and help dig the Hawkeyes out of an 18-point hole. Melissa Dixon made 5-of-13 3-point field goals, as Iowa outscored the Hoosiers 22-0 in bench points, and all 22 came from Dixon. The Hawkeyes shot 60.9 percent from the field in the second half (14-of-23) and outscored Indiana 41-26 over the final 20 minutes. Johnson scored 17 points with nine rebounds, Printy added 14 points and six assists, and junior Theairra Taylor scored 11 points with three assists and two blocked shots. A 3-pointer by Taylor with 2:39 left gave Iowa a 68-65 lead, and it would not trail again. RECAP

Nebraska 55, Wisconsin 53
Hailie Sample's layup off an assist from Lindsey Moore with 43 seconds left brought No. 20 Nebraska all the way back from a five-point deficit in the closing minutes for a 55-53 win at the Kohl Center on Thursday night. The late heroics by Sample, Moore and Rachel Theriot were enough to stretch Nebraska's winning streak to 10 straight games and improve to 22-6 overall and 12-3 in the Big Ten. NU's 12 league wins are the second most in school history. Sample, who also teamed with Moore to secure another one-possession road win at Iowa during Nebraska's winning streak, finished with six points.

Penn State 84, #4/4 Michigan 78
The Penn State men's basketball team (9-18, 1-14 Big Ten) rallied in the second half for an 84-78 upset of No. 4 Michigan (23-5, 10-5 Big Ten) Wednesday night. It was the highest ranked opponent ever beaten by the Nittany Lions in the Bryce Jordan Center. It also marked Penn State's first Big Ten win of the season. Tonight's win against Michigan marks the third time in program history that the Nittany Lions defeated a team ranked No. 4 or higher. All three have occurred since 2000. The Nittany Lions were led by junior Jermaine Marshall (Etters, Pa.) who put up 25 points and was second on the team in rebounds with six. Sophomore D.J. Newbill (Philadelphia, Pa.) was second on the team with 17 points and led the Lions with five assists. Sophomore Ross Travis (Chaska, Minn.) tied his career high with 15 points and had a team-best 12 boards for the fourth double-double of his career. RECAP

Iowa 58, Purdue 48
or Roy Devyn Marble and sophomore Aaron White combined for 36 points in leading the University of Iowa men's basketball team to a 58-48 victory over Purdue in a defensive slugfest Wednesday night on Mediacom Court inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Iowa appeared to take control of the game midway through the second half, building a 47-33 lead, but Purdue fought to make things interesting. The Boilermakers used a 10-2 run behind a pair of D.J. Byrd 3-pointers to trim the margin to 49-43 with 2:17 remaining. With the Hawkeye offense struggling to find a shot, sophomore Josh Oglesby connected on a 3-pointer on a set play coming out of a timeout to give Iowa a 52-43 lead with 1:43 to play. The shot staved off any hope of a Purdue rally, and sent the Hawkeyes to their 18th victory. RECAP

Minnesota 77, #1/1 Indiana 73
Trevor Mbakwe had 21 points and 12 rebounds to help Minnesota take down No. 1 Indiana 77-73 on Tuesday night, the seventh time the top-ranked team in The Associated Press' poll has lost a game this season. Andre Hollins added 16 points for the Gophers (19-9, 7-8 Big Ten), who outrebounded Cody Zeller and the Hoosiers by a whopping 44-30 and solidified their slipping NCAA tournament case with an emphatic performance against the Big Ten leaders. The fans rushed the court as the last seconds ticked off, the first time that's happened here in years. Mbakwe, a sixth-year senior, posted his conference-leading seventh double-double. At 24 years old, he was a man among boys in many ways in this game, dominating both ends of the court when the Gophers needed him most. Minnesota had 23 offensive rebounds. RECAP

#17/16 Wisconsin 77, Nebraska 46
Ben Brust admitted he didn't crash the offensive boards hard when teammate Sam Dekker had the ball in his hands. He had good reason. "Every time Sam had the ball, I ran back because I knew it was going in," Brust said after Dekker matched his career high with 19 points Tuesday night to lead No. 17 Wisconsin to a 77-46 victory over Nebraska. The freshman came off the bench to shoot 5-of-6 from the field, including 4-of-5 from 3-point range, and helped set the tone early as the Badgers (20-8, 11-4 Big Ten) put on an offensive show. It was Dekker's fifth-straight game in double figures, and he attributed his run to a growing confidence in his offensive game, as well as having won the confidence of his teammates. RECAP

Nebraska took a timeout with 20 seconds left to set up its final possession. Talley, a 6-foot-5 senior guard, took several seconds before he stopped and pulled up for a long 3-pointer over Iowa guard Mike Gesell to put the Huskers ahead. Iowa, which saw its three-game win streak snapped, came down quickly after Talley's basket and got off a shot to tie, but Gesell missed a game-tying shot. Iowa then fouled Ray Gallegos, who split a pair of free throws, to give NU a four-point lead and Marble missed a halfcourt shot at the buzzer. RECAP

Northwestern 54, Wisconsin 52
Northwestern came out on top in a tight contest Saturday afternoon against the Badgers, 54-52. The Wildcats trailed by as many as 10 points but staged a second-half comeback that included six ties before Northwestern took over for good (53-52) after freshman forward Maggie Lyon drained one of her three 3-pointers with 1:47 to play. Senior forward Kendall Hackney and Lyon led the team in scoring, posting 13 points each for the Wildcats. Hackney broke a Northwestern record Saturday by playing in her 123rd career game.

Sophomore guard Karly Roser was close to a triple-double, scoring eight points to go along with nine rebounds and nine assists. Senior forward/center Dannielle Diamant chipped in 12 points. RECAP

Illinois (rv/rv) 64, Penn State 59
D.J. Richardson finished with 18 points and hit a pair of key free throws late in Illinois' 64-59 win over Penn State. The win was the fifth straight for Illinois (20-8, 7-7 Big Ten). But facing a team that hadn't won since late December, it didn't come easy. Jermaine Marshall's 3-pointer brought Penn State within 62-59 with 5 seconds left. Richardson then sank a pair of free throws that sealed the win. Illinois led 29-20 at the end of a brutal first half. The Illini's Brandon Paul entered the game a point shy of 1,500 in his career. It took him almost 17 minutes to get it. He finished with 16. RECAP

Minnesota 57, Ohio State 56
Rachel Banham nailed a jumper with 0.02 seconds to play to lift the University of Minnesota (16-11, 5-8 Big Ten) women's basketball team to a 57-56 victory over Ohio State (14-12, 4-9 Big Ten) Thursday night in Big Ten action from Value City Arena in Columbus, Ohio. Back-to-back three-pointers from the Buckeyes' Raven Ferguson in the final 18 seconds of play gave Ohio State a one-point lead with 13 seconds remaining, but Banham led the Gophers down the floor and drilled the game-winner to give Minnesota just its second win in Columbus all-time and secured the squad's first-ever Big Ten series sweep vs. the Buckeyes. Including the game-winner, Banham has 17 points, eight rebounds and two assists, while Micaella Riche pitched in 17 points, five rebounds, two assists and a steal. Kionna Kellogg also pulled down eight rebounds for Minnesota, while Leah Cotton had a 5-6 performance at the free throw line. RECAP

Nebraska 57, Michigan 39
The No. 24 Nebraska women's basketball team opened the second half on a 21-0 and never looked back in a 57-39 victory at Michigan on Thursday night. Jordan Hooper led the Huskers with her eighth double-double of the year with 14 points and 12 rebounds, while senior guard Lindsey Moore produced game highs of 15 points and eight assists. Nebraska stretched its winning streak to eight games, including five straight on the road, to improve to 20-6 overall and 10-3 in the Big Ten. It is the Huskers' second straight 20-win campaign and fifth in the past seven years. Michigan slipped to 19-7 overall and 8-5 in the Big Ten, having its three-game winning streak snapped. RECAP

#18/18 Ohio State 71, Minnesota (rv/rv) 45
Deshaun Thomas overcame a slow start to score 19 points and No. 18 Ohio State used a 16-0 second-half run to beat Minnesota 71-45 on Wednesday night. The teams came into the night in dire need of a Big Ten win. Both had lost three of their last four, and each was humiliated on the road on Sunday. The Golden Gophers (18-9, 6-8 Big Ten) were pounded at Iowa, 72-51, while Ohio State (19-7, 9-5) wasn't a factor over the final 35 minutes in a 71-49 beatdown at Wisconsin. Shannon Scott added 11 points and LaQuinton Ross 10 for the Buckeyes, who have won the last six meetings with the Golden Gophers overall and the last six in Columbus. RECAP

#19/17 Wisconsin 69, Northwestern 41
Ben Brust loves to go inside with all the big men and come away with the basketball. The guard plays a lot bigger than his stature, much to the delight of Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan. Brust had 12 points and eight rebounds after missing the last two days of practice with a sore left knee, and the 19th-ranked Badgers shut down Northwestern 69-41 on Wednesday night for their fifth win in six games. "We needle him a little bit. He's a lot tougher than he looks," Ryan said. "Physically he's bought into everything we're trying to do and have done over the years." RECAP

Indiana 62, Purdue 61
The Indiana-Purdue rivalry lived up to its expectation Wednesday night at Assembly Hall. The IU women's basketball team took down No. 22/21 Purdue 62-61 on a buzzer-beater by senior Jasmine McGhee who finished with 26 points to lead all scorers. McGhee scored 26 points while shooting 11-of-17 from the floor, tying her career mark for most field goals in a single game. Aulani Sinclair added 16 points for IU, going 6-of-11 from the floor including three 3-point field goals. Sasha Chaplin was the third Hoosier to score in double figures as she tallied 10 points. IU outrebounded Purdue, 35-33, and shot 43.6 percent as a team from the field. RECAP 

Michigan State 54, Northwestern 45
Michigan State women's basketball overcame a slow offensive start to beat Northwestern, 54-45 tonight at the Breslin Center. The Spartans won their 20th game of the season, reaching the 20-win plateau for the 10th-consecutive season, the longest active streak in the Big Ten. MSU (20-6, 8-5) was led by 15 points from sophomore Becca Mills, while senior Jasmine Thomas filled the stat sheet with 10 points, six rebounds, three assists, three steals and a career-high three blocks. Sophomore Kiana Johnson led the Spartans with six assists and three steals. RECAP

Penn State 95, Illinois 62
The #7/9 Penn State Lady Lions (22-3, 12-1 Big Ten) used a 61.1% shooting effort, their first time better than 60% in a game since 1996, in a 95-62 victory over Illinois (15-10, 8-5) on Wednesday night in the Bryce Jordan Center. Junior Maggie Lucas just missed out on her second career double-double with 22 points on 7-of-11 shooting, including 3-for-5 from three-point range, to go along with nine rebounds and five assists. Senior Alex Bentley filled the stat sheet with 20 points, seven assists, five rebounds and five steals. Senior Mia Nickson was very effective in the post, scoring 13 points to go with seven rebounds, while junior Ariel Edwards rounded out the double-digit scoring with 11 points. RECAP

Illinois 60, Wisconsin 53
The Illinois women's basketball outdueled the visiting Wisconsin Badgers Monday night in a game of runs, earning a hard fought 60-53 victory. The Illini have now won three straight inside the comfy confines of Assembly Hall, as they moved their overall record to 15-9. In addition, the win jumps their Big Ten record to 8-4 which moves the Orange and Blue into a tie for third place with Purdue and Michigan. 

Karisma Penn and Adrienne GodBold ueled the Illini attack, scoring 42 of the team's 60 points on a combined 15-33 shooting from the field. Penn's tally of 26 points and 14 rebounds resulted in the senior's 40th career double double, which moves Penn into a tie for second place all-time with Jonelle Polk and 13 behind the leader Jenna Smith. In addition, Penn's 24 points were the most since she scored 34 against Ohio State on Jan. 6. Meanwhile, GodBold finished with 16 points and 7 rebounds. RECAP

Sunday's Results

Iowa 72, Minnesota 51
Take away the first eight minutes, and Sunday's 72-51 victory over Minnesota for the University of Iowa men's basketball team would have been pure domination. The Gophers landed the first punch, jumping out to a 12-4 lead over the first four minutes before stretching its advantage to 21-5 courtesy of three free throws by Austin Hollins at the 12:57 mark. The Gophers made 6-of-9 shots to start the game and were 9-of-9 from the free throw stripe. "Rarely do you get down by 15 and win by 20," said UI head coach Fran McCaffery. "Our team could have wilted (when we were down early). We haven't shown that we're going to do that any time at all this year." RECAP

Michigan 79, Penn State 71
Sophomore guard Trey Burke scored a season-high 29 points, and freshman guard Glenn Robinson III recorded his second career double-double with 21 points (6-for-6) and 10 rebounds as the University of Michigan men's basketball team (No. 4 AP, No. 5 ESPN/USA Today) defeated Penn State, 79-71, on Sunday inside Crisler Center. Also scoring in double digits for U-M was freshman guard Nik Stauskas with 18 points. The Wolverines shot 23-of-49 (47 percent) from the floor and 27-of-35 (77 percent) from the free throw line in the game, while the Nittany Lions converted 25-of-57 (44 percent) from the field but only made 15-of-17 (88 percent) from the charity stripe. RECAP

Wisconsin 71, Ohio State 49
After three straight overtime games, Wisconsin made sure it would need only 40 minutes to outlast 13th-ranked Ohio State on Sunday at the Kohl Center. In reality, the Badgers probably didn't need the full 40 minutes cruising to a 71-49 win over the Buckeyes. No. 20 Wisconsin (18-8, 9-4 Big Ten) shot a season-best 53 percent in what was a dramatic turnaround offensively for the Badgers, who went scoreless over the final five minutes in a loss at Minnesota on Thursday. Ben Brust and Jared Berggren tallied 15 points apiece for the Badgers, as freshman Sam Dekker chipped in 13. Brust added 11 rebounds for his fifth career double-double, while sophomore Traevon Jackson rounded out the double-figure scoring with 10 points for UW. RECAP

Illinois 62, Northwestern 41
D.J. Richardson scored 18 points to lead Illinois to a 62-41 victory over Northwestern on Sunday night. Tracy Abrams added 13 points off the bench for the Illini (19-8, 6-7 Big Ten), who have won four straight. Reggie Hearn led Northwestern with 11 points. The Wildcats (13-13, 4-9) have lost three straight and five of their last six. Illinois scored the first 16 points of the second half after ending the first half on a 10-0 run. Richardson's layup extended Illinois' lead to 45-15 with 13:53 remaining. James Montgomery scored Northwestern's first points of the half on a layup with 13:26 left. Northwestern shot 25 percent from the field and Illinois shot 43.6 percent. RECAP

Northwestern 70, Minnesota 63
Northwestern hung tight with Minnesota through the first 30 minutes of play, and pulled away over the final 10 to earn a 70-63 road win over the Golden Gophers at Williams Arena on Sunday afternoon. Senior Kendall Hackney paced the Wildcats with 20 points and eight rebounds as the visitors improved to 12-13 on the year. Reigning Big Ten Freshman of the Week Maggie Lyon picked up where she left off last week, posting seven of Northwestern's first nine points. The Wildcats finished with four of five starters in double-figures, Hackney (20), Lyon (16), Lauren Douglas (14) and Dannielle Diamant (12). Karly Roser led the team with five assists and three steals in the 70-63 win. RECAP

Iowa 72, Purdue 52

The win pushed Iowa to 17-10 overall and 6-7 in Big Ten Conference play. Purdue dropped to 19-6 and 8-4. Iowa was led in scoring by Samantha Logic. The sophomore guard scored a career-high 26 points on 10 of 13 shooting from the field. She also sank four of five free throw attempts and was credited with nine assists. Theairra Taylor chipped in 15 points and a team-high 11 rebounds. Morgan Johnson and Melissa Dixon also scored in double-digits with 12 and 10 points, respectively. RECAP

Indiana 83, Purdue 55
Now that Indiana (23-3, 11-2) has bucked the trend of No. 1 teams losing, it can stop worrying about votes and start focusing on more important things like the Big Ten title chase. Will Sheehey scored a career-high 22 points, set a new school record by going 9 for 9 from the field and led the Hoosiers to an 83-55 victory that was never really close. Last week, the Hoosiers got a reprieve after losing at Illinois before winning at No. 10 Ohio State. They held onto the top spot only after the next four highest-ranked teams all lost, too. But Saturday's win assured the Hoosiers of hanging onto at least a share of the league lead as they head into Tuesday night's showdown with No. 8 Michigan State. The Spartans faced Nebraska later Saturday. RECAP

Michigan State 73, Nebraska 64
Keith Appling scored 16 points to go over 1,000 for his career and Adreian Payne added 15 points and 14 rebounds in eighth-ranked Michigan State's 73-64 victory over Nebraska on Saturday night. The win allowed Michigan State (22-4, 11-2) to remain tied with Indiana for first place in the Big Ten. The Cornhuskers (12-14, 3-10), who have lost seven straight against opponents ranked in the top 10, never led but were within a point with 14 minutes left. The Spartans put away their fifth straight win with a 20-6 run. Michigan State blocked a season-high 12 shots, with Branden Dawson matching his career high with four swats. RECAP

In front of a season-high 5,800 fans, the University of Michigan women's basketball team outlasted in-state rival Michigan State to claim its third straight victory, 70-69, Saturday afternoon (Feb. 16) at Crisler Center.

Two other Wolverines scored in double figures, including senior guard Kate Thompson with 20 points on 7-of-12 shooting from the floor, while senior forward Nya Jordan scored 12 points and grabbed seven rebounds. For the game, Michigan shot 49.1 percent (26-of-53) from the field, while MSU connected on 51.9 percent (28-of-54) of its shots. Michigan outscored the Spartans, 36-18 in the paint, and MSU won the battle of the boards (32-27). RECAP

It was Iowa's first win in Happy Valley since 2006. "We knew this wasn't going to be easy," said Marble. "They were sticking with us, and we just had to keep fighting. I told the guys we had to grind this out. We didn't want to go home with that bad taste like we did the last 3-4 games on the road. We just dug in." RECAP

#1/2 Indiana 76, Nebraska 47
Cody Zeller scored 16 points and Christian Watford finished with 13 points and 11 rebounds to help No. 1/2 Indiana pull away from Nebraska 76-47 on Wednesday night. The Hoosiers (22-3, 10-2 Big Ten) have won seven of eight and regained a share of the league lead. They are tied with Michigan State. But it sure wasn't easy against Nebraska (12-13, 3-9), which frustrated Indiana by limiting possessions and repeatedly taking the shot clock inside of 10 seconds in the first half. Dylan Talley scored 10 of his 16 points in the first half to lead the Cornhuskers. Indiana took charge after Zeller went to the bench with his second foul midway through the first half. It used a 10-0 run to take a 21-14 lead and closed the half on a 6-0 run to make it 27-18, then opened the second half on another 6-0 run. RECAP

Illinois 79, Purdue 59
D.J. Richardson scored 18 points and Illinois opened up a big first-half lead that buried Purdue 79-59 on Wednesday night. The win was the third straight for Illinois (18-8, 5-7 Big Ten), which is clawing its way back into the postseason picture. The other wins were resume-builders over No. 1 Indiana and then-No. 18 Minnesota. A dunk by Tyler Griffey with 8:46 remaining put Illinois up 64-46. The margin was too much for a Boilermakers team that had already tried to dig out of a 16-point first-half hole. Griffey scored 12 points and Joseph Bertrand had a career-high 12 rebounds. RECAP

Dawson scored 20 points in another trip back to his home State, while Appling and Nix each finished with 17 points to lead No. 12 Michigan State past Purdue 78-65. "Do I have it figured out? I sure didn't yesterday when (Gary) Harris didn't practice and (Travis) Trice didn't practice," coach Tom Izzo said. "But one thing we do have is some inside-outside ability. We're not one-dimensional, like some of my teams have been. I'll figure it out when I get everyone back." Until then, the Spartans (20-4, 9-2 Big Ten) will continue to live by the simple formula that has them back on top of the toughest conference in the nation. RECAP

Brust hit a tie-breaking 3-pointer with less than 40 seconds left in overtime as Wisconsin beat No. 3 Michigan 65-62 on Saturday. "It was awesome, something I'll remember forever, and I'm sure a lot of people will," Brust said of the game. RECAP

Penn State 76, Indiana 54
The #8/9 Penn State Lady Lions (19-3, 9-1 Big Ten) landed four players in double figures, led by 20 points each from Alex Bentley and Maggie Lucas on the way to a 76-54 win at Indiana (10-13, 1-9) Thursday. The win is the 850th in program history, making Penn State one of 12 programs in NCAA Division I to reach the milestone. Additionally, Nikki Greene became the only player in Penn State history to accumulate 1,000 points, 900 rebounds and 200 blocks in the win. Playing in her home state of Indiana for the final time in her collegiate career, Bentley posted her fourth 20-point performance of the season and the 22nd of her career with 20 markers. She also added four rebounds and three steals. Lucas, who was saddled with foul trouble for much of the first half, had 20 points for her 10th 20-point effort of the year and 41st of her career. She also pulled in two rebounds and had two steals. RECAP


Michigan 72, Illinois 69
The University of Michigan women's basketball team had four players score in double figures, including 21 from senior forward Rachel Sheffer, and held off a late Illinois run to defeat the Fighting Illini, 72-69, Thursday night (Feb. 7) inside Crisler Center. Michigan, which won its 11th game at home this season, snapped a three-game losing streak in Big Ten play. Sheffer was 8-of-15 from the floor and grabbed seven rebounds, while senior guard Kate Thompson hit five three-pointers for all 15 of her points. Thompson also had a pair of blocked shots. Senior forward Nya Jordan and senior guard Jenny Ryan had 14 and 13 points, respectively. Ryan had seven rebounds, seven assists and four steals, while Jordan had a game-high nine rebounds. RECAP

Ohio State 65, Wisconsin 59 (2OT)
Ohio State worked two overtimes to defeat Wisconsin, 65-59, Thursday at Value City Arena. But it took a little magic at the end of regulation for the Buckeyes to pull out the victory. Trailing by four points with 11 seconds left, Tayler Hill was fouled on a 3-point attempt with 1.5 seconds left. After making the first two, Hill intentionally missed the third free throw as Amber Stokes flipped the ball under the basket to Ameryst Alston who quickly flipped the ball over her shoulder and through the net as time expired. It was Alston's first basket of the game. But that was only just the beginning of the drama. With 1:32 left in the first overtime and down two, Stokes drove baseline and converted a layup to tie the game for the 14th time. After a Wisconsin miss on its next possession, Hill had a chance to win the game but missed a layup, which forced another overtime session. This time Ohio State (13-10, 3-7) eliminated the drama early, outscoring the Badgers 7-1 in the second overtime to win its second in a row and keep its postseason hopes alive. Ashley Adams led Ohio State with 16 points and nine rebounds while Hill and Stokes each added 15. Aleksandra Dobranic also hit key shots for the Buckeyes in critical moments and finished with nine. RECAP

Nebraska 55, Northwestern 50

Jordan Hooper and Lindsey Moore both went over the 1,500 career point mark and powered the Nebraska women's basketball team to a 55-50 victory at Northwestern on Thursday night. With the victory, Nebraska improved to 17-6 overall and 7-3 in the Big Ten, as the Huskers notched their fourth conference road win of the year. Northwestern slipped to 11-12 overall and 3-7 in the league. Hooper finished with a game-high 19 points, while adding seven rebounds, and Moore pitched in 16 points, two assists and four steals. Emily Cady added seven points and seven rebounds, while Rachel Theriot pitched in six points and three assists. RECAP

Minnesota 72, Iowa 60

The University of Minnesota (15-9, 4-6 B1G) women's basketball team got 34 points and nine rebounds from Rachel Banham to defeat visiting Iowa (16-8, 5-5 B1G), 72-60, Thursday night in Big Ten action from Williams Arena. With her basket with 10:46 remaining in the second half, Banham surpassed Lindsay Whalen for the program scoring record for a sophomore. Whalen boasted 1,092 points by the end of her sophomore campaign, while Banham finished the contest with 1,099 for her career. Banham also passed former Gopher and current Minnesota assistant coach Kelly Roysland for the No. 15 spot on Minnesota's all-time scoring register. Roysland concluded her career with 1,074 points. Along with Banham, freshman Shayne Mullaney and redshirt freshman Kayla Hirt also scored in double-figures for the Gophers in the victory. Micaella Riche was Minnesota's top rebounder, pulling down a game-best 13 boards to go along with six points, two blocks and a steal, while Sari Noga added six rebounds, five points, four assists and a steal.

Illinois 74, #1/1 Indiana 72
Tyler Griffey made an uncontested layup at the buzzer off a baseline inbounds pass and Illinois beat No. 1 Indiana 74-72 on Thursday night, the fifth straight week the nation's top-ranked team has lost. The Illini (16-8, 3-7 Big Ten) trailed 41-29 at halftime and by double digits for most of the second half before closing the game on a 13-2 run over the final 3:36. With the score tied, Indiana's Victor Oladipo turned the ball over and recovered to block a breakaway layup by D.J. Richardson out of bounds with less than a second to play. Griffey, who was open after setting a screen, took the inbounds pass from Brandon Paul with .9 seconds left and gently laid the ball into the basket. RECAP

Craft hit a pair of free throws with 56 seconds left to put the Buckeyes up seven. RECAP

#3/3 Indiana 81, #1/2 Michigan 73
The No. 1 chants rained down from the student section even before Saturday's game ended. By Monday afternoon, it should be official. Cody Zeller finished with 19 points and nine rebounds, and Victor Oladipo added 15 points, leading the third-ranked Hoosiers to an 81-73 victory against No. 1 Michigan on a day that the nation's top two teams lost. The results will likely send Indiana back to the top spot, which it held for the first seven weeks this season. "It's a huge accomplishment," Oladipo said after about the expected climb. "You know we started there, we had a hard road to get back here. We're just going to continue to keep working." RECAP
