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.

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
