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
