STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Jordan Hulls hit seven of No. 12 Indiana's season-high 16 3-pointers and the Hoosiers snapped a 16-game Big Ten road losing streak with an 88-82 victory over Penn State on Sunday.
Hulls, a 6-foot guard, finished with 28 points for Indiana (15-1, 3-1).
Down eight points with 1:22 to go, the Nittany Lions (9-8, 1-3) forced two straight turnovers to highlight a late run to get within 84-82 with 21 seconds left on two free throws by Matt Glover.
But Matt Roth hit two foul shots and Penn State missed a last-gasp 3.
The Hoosiers won a regular-season road conference game for the first time since a 67-61 win at Penn State on Jan. 21, 2010.
Tim Frazier finished with 21 points for Penn State while Jermaine Marshall added 20.
NO. 16 MICHIGAN 59, NO. 18 WISCONSIN 41
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 17 points and Michigan freshman Trey Burke outplayed Jordan Taylor for most of the game.
Burke scored 14 points for the Wolverines (13-3, 3-1 Big Ten), who snapped a 10-game losing streak against the Badgers. Taylor, Wisconsin's star point guard, was held to 12 points, a majority of which came after Michigan had taken control of the game.
The Badgers (12-5, 1-3) have lost three straight.
Michigan bounced back from a two-point loss at No. 12 Indiana on Thursday night. The Wolverines began the game on a 10-2 run and led 25-19 at halftime. A three-point play by Burke in transition made it 43-26.
Wisconsin's Josh Gasser was held to four points. It was Gasser's banked 3-pointer at the buzzer that won the game for Wisconsin in Ann Arbor last season.
