Hoosiers snap Big Ten road skid on flurry of 3s

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — The Penn State crowd collectively gasped after the 3-pointer left Indiana guard Matt Roth's hands.

The way the Hoosiers were shooting from long range all game, it was as if the fans knew the basket would be good before the ball even sailed through the hoop.

Roth and backcourt mate Jordan Hulls combined to hit 12 of No. 12 Indiana's season-high 16 3-pointers to help the Hoosiers snap a 16-game Big Ten road losing streak and hold on for an 88-82 victory over the Nittany Lions on Sunday.

"It's a testament to how well we moved the ball," Roth said. "We had a lot of inside-out stuff to get us started. That's always nice to get that shot when you're shooting 3s and it's coming from the middle."

Whether they were spotting up from the top of the key, the wings or the corners, the shots fell at a blistering 66 percent clip (16-of-24). Hulls had a career-high 28 points, and Roth, who made 5 of 6 3-pointers, finished with 22.

Cheered on by a healthy sprinkling of fans wearing Indiana red, the Hoosiers (15-1, 3-1 Big Ten) won a regular-season road conference game for the first time since a 67-61 win at Penn State on Jan. 21, 2010.

NO. 16 MICH. 59, NO. 18 WIS. 41: Tim Hardaway Jr. had 17 points as the host Wolverines (13-3, 3-1 Big Ten) snapped a 10-game skid against the Badgers (12-5, 1-3), who have lost three straight.
