Illinois (rv/rv) 72, Nebraska 65
Illinois used double-figure scoring from five players to hold off Nebraska Saturday, 72-65. The Huskers led 57-55 with just over 6 minutes to play. But the Illini (21-9, 8-8 Big Ten) went on a 7-0 run started by a 3-pointer from D.J. Richardson to go up 62-57. They never trailed again. Tracy Abrams led Illinois with 16 points. Brandon Paul had 14 and Richardson, Myke Henry and Nnanna Egwu also scored in double figures. Nebraska (13-16, 4-12) was led by 23 points from Ray Gallegos and 20 by Dylan Talley. The win helps build Illinois' NCAA tournament case with two regular-seasons games left. The Illini play at Iowa Tuesday and at No. 16 Ohio State March 10. RECAP

#1/1 Indiana 73, Iowa 60
Cody Zeller overcame a sluggish start to score 22 points and Kevin "Yogi" Ferrell added a career-high 19 as No. 1 Indiana got past Iowa 73-60 on Saturday night. The Hoosiers (25-4, 13-3 Big Ten) rebounded from this week's loss to Minnesota. But it was no typical night for Indiana's shooters, who were 38.9 percent from the field and didn't hit a 3-pointer until the final minute. But Indiana played defense and took care of the ball. Iowa (18-11, 7-9) committed 14 of its 19 turnovers in the first half and shot just 38.2 percent from the field. Roy Devyn Marble scored 18 of his 20 points in the second half to lead Iowa, while Aaron White had 14. RECAP

Minnesota 73, Penn State 44
Trevor Mbakwe had 13 points and 13 rebounds and Minnesota held Penn State scoreless for the first 11 minutes of the game to for a 73-44 victory on Saturday. Julian Welch had 10 points and seven assists and Rodney Williams had 10 points and seven rebounds for the Golden Gophers (20-9, 8-8 Big Ten), who didn't let the Nittany Lions spoil their Senior Day and capped a big week in which they also toppled No. 1 Indiana at home. D.J. Newbill scored 15 points for Penn State (9-19, 1-15) but made just 2 of 16 field goals, and the Lions weren't able to sneak up on Minnesota like they did No. 4 Michigan earlier this week. RECAP
