IU hands Badgers 1st loss

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Tom Crean watched his young Hoosiers grow up Tuesday night.

Stunned fans were overjoyed with the results.

The turnovers and fouls were down. The defense improved and the Hoosiers did more than just play for pride; they protected their home court against an undefeated team.

Kevin "Yogi" Ferrell had 25 points, including two free throws with 18.1 seconds left, and freshman Stanford Robinson added a career-best 13 before grabbing the final rebound on a missed 3-pointer to preserve Indiana's 75-72 victory over No. 3 Wisconsin. Students streamed onto the court afterward.

"The program has had a lot of big wins. To the team, it means a great deal," Crean said. "The team needs this. I mean we had a long week from Michigan State to Penn State but we've gotten a lot better, and we got a lot better the last couple of days. It's amazing what happens when some real confidence starts to come."

Wisconsin (16-1, 3-1 Big Ten) entered as one of the nation's four unbeaten teams and was trying to become the first team to win 13 straight over the Hoosiers. Indiana (12-5, 2-2) responded with its best performance of the season.

It committed nine turnovers, held Wisconsin to four free throws (the Badgers made one) and dug itself out from a 10-point second-half deficit with a 12-0 run that gave it the lead for good.

NO. 5 WICHITA ST. 72, BRADLEY 50: Fred VanVleet had 22 points and seven rebounds for the host Shockers (18-0, 5-0 MVC), who extended their school-record winning streak and their best start to a season.

ARKANSAS 87, NO. 13 KENTUCKY 85, OT: Michael Qualls' thundering two-handed dunk with .2 seconds left in overtime lifted the Razorbacks to their third straight win at home over the Wildcats (12-4, 2-1 SEC). Qualls rebounded Ky Madden's 3-point miss and hit the winner.

NO. 19 UC 69, TEMPLE 58: Sean Kilpatrick emerged from his 3-point shooting slump by making 6 of 13 as the host Bearcats (16-2, 5-0 AAC) rallied to their ninth straight win.

NO. 20 CREIGHTON 88, BUTLER 60: Doug McDermott scored 24 of his 28 in the first half as the host Bluejays (15-2, 5-0) routed a fellow Big East newcomer for their 10th straight win.

NO. 22 PITT 81, GA. TECH 74: Talib Zanna had 22 points for the visiting Panthers (16-1, 4-0 ACC), who pulled away in the second half.

KANSAS ST. 72, NO. 25 OKLA. 66: Marcus Foster had 18 points and Nino Williams made four free throws in the closing seconds for the host Wildcats, who rallied from a 62-56 deficit with just more than five minutes left to nip the Sooners (13-4, 2-2 Big 12).

MISSOURI ST.: Guard Marcus Marshall, the team's leading scorer, is out indefinitely with a torn meniscus in his right knee.


NO. 11 OKLA. ST. 65, TCU 53: Tiffany Bias had 23 points for the host Cowgirls (15-1, 4-1 Big 12), who took a 12-0 lead then held off a pair of second-half surges.

MEMPHIS 74, NO. 23 RUTGERS 73, OT: Ariel Hearn scored 18 and Asianna Fuqua-Bey hit two winning free throws in overtime as the host Tigers rallied past the Scarlet Knights (13-3, 4-1 AAC).

FLORIDA: Forward Christin Mercer was suspended indefinitely following her arrest on robbery charges.
