Indiana's Yogi Ferrell and Wisconsin's Nigel Hayes both put up career-highs in points in their team's respective games.
Ferrell hit 12-of-18 shots on his way to a career-high 38 points in an impressive 90-65 win over IPFW. The Hoosiers' senior point guard was 4-of-8 from 3-point range in his 112th career game at Indiana.
Ferrell's 38 points was just four shy of the all-time Assembly Hall scoring record of 42, which was set by Steve Alford back in 1987.
In the late game on BTN, Nigel Hayes put up a career-best 32 points, but it came in a shocking 68-67 upset loss to Milwaukee.
Hayes was 9-of-18 from the field and 12-of-19 from the free throw line.
Two impressive outings by a pair of Big Ten basketball stars.
