Reggie Hearn made each of his first nine field goal attempts and scored 21 of his career-high 26 points in the first half in leading Northwestern to a 75-60 win over Purdue at Welsh-Ryan Arena on Saturday. All five NU starters scored at least nine points, including Dave Sobolewski who had 13 points, six assists and six rebounds. Jared Swopshire also contributed 13 points, seven boards and four blocked shots. The Wildcats swatted a school-record 12 shots as a team. The previous high was 11 against Loras on Nov. 26, 1984.

#11/11 Ohio State 63, Nebraska 56
Lenzelle Smith Jr. had 21 points and No. 11 Ohio State held off a late Nebraska surge for a 63-56 victory Saturday night. Ohio State (17-4, 7-2 Big Ten) led 53-38 after a pair of free throws by Aaron Craft with 9:05 left. Nebraska (11-12, 2-8) then made its comeback, outscoring the Buckeyes 15-5 and cutting the lead to 58-53 on David Rivers' free throws with 2:40 remaining. Following an Ohio State miss, Nebraska's Brandon Ubel and Andre Almeida each missed shots at the rim and Ubel missed a 3-point attempt. 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
