MICHIGAN 80, PENN STATE 67 | RECAP | BOX | PLAY-BY-PLAY
(AP) Nik Stauskas scored 13 of his 21 points in the second half, and Michigan remained unbeaten in Big Ten play with an 80-67 victory over Penn State on Tuesday night. The Wolverines (12-4, 4-0) led 47-45 when a 3-pointer by Stauskas started a 19-5 run that gave Michigan a comfortable advantage. Derrick Walton added 16 points for the Wolverines, and Glenn Robinson III scored 15. D.J. Newbill and Tim Frazier scored 17 points apiece for Penn State (9-9, 0-5), but those two backcourt standouts weren’t enough against a balanced Michigan team.
INDIANA 75, WISCONSIN 72 | RECAP | BOX | PLAY-BY-PLAY
(AP) Yogi Ferrell scored 25 points Tuesday night, leading Indiana to a stunning 75-72 upset over previously unbeaten Wisconsin. The third-ranked Badgers (16-1, 3-1 Big Ten) were trying to become the first team ever to win 13 straight games over the Hoosiers (12-5, 2-2). Wisconsin started the night as one of Division I’s four remaining unbeaten teams and it looked like it would stay that way when the Badgers took a 10-point lead with 13:27 to play. But the Hoosiers, playing their best game of the season, answered with 12 straight points to take a 54-52 lead with 9 minutes left.
