BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Cody Zeller scored 19 points and Victor Oladipo had 15, leading No. 3 Indiana to an 81-73 victory over No. 1 Michigan on Saturday night.
It's the third time in school history the Hoosiers (20-2, 8-1 Big Ten) have beaten the No. 1 team at home, and it's the first time they've done it in back-to-back seasons. The win gives Indiana sole possession of the Big Ten lead and likely the No. 1 ranking it held for the first seven weeks this season when the new poll comes out Monday.
In addition to Michigan's defeat, No. 2 Kansas lost 85-80 to Oklahoma State.
The Wolverines (20-2, 7-2) were led by Trey Burke with 25 points and Tim Hardaway Jr. with 18, but they couldn't extend their four-game winning streak.
Indiana took an early 20-7 lead and Michigan tied it only one time after that, at 40. The Hoosiers put it away with a late 7-2 run.
Michigan played most of the night without starting forward Jordan Morgan, who played just 2 minutes on a sprained right ankle before returning to the bench.
OKLAHOMA ST. 85 NO. 2 KANSAS 80
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Markel Brown scored 28 points, Marcus Smart added 25 and Oklahoma State held on to upset Kansas, ending the Jayhawks' nation-leading 18-game winning streak.
Smart had a pair of key putbacks in the closing minutes, helping the Cowboys (15-5, 5-3 Big 12) go on a 13-2 run that turned a 66-62 deficit into a 73-68 lead with just over a minute left.
The Jayhawks (19-2, 7-1) trimmed Oklahoma State's lead to 81-80 on a layup by Elijah Johnson with 18.8 seconds left. But Phil Forte made both of his free throws with 7.9 seconds to go, and Johnson turned the ball over before Kansas could try a tying 3-pointer.
Forte converted the turnover into a buzzer-beating layup, punctuating the Cowboys' first road win over a top 5 team since beating then-No. 2 Kansas 52-50 in overtime on Jan. 2, 1958.
Ben McLemore had 23 points to lead the Jayhawks, whose 33-game home winning streak was snapped.
No. 4 FLORIDA 78, No. 16 MISSISSIPPI 64
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Erik Murphy scored 19 points and was instrumental on the defensive end in leading Florida to a victory over Mississippi.
Murphy shot 7 of 8, including 5 of 6 from 3-point range, and added six rebounds and four assists. Defensively, he took a charge, had a block and altered several shots in the paint.
Pat Young added 13 points and 12 rebounds for the Gators (18-2, 8-0), who won their 10th consecutive game. Mike Rosario (14 points) and Scottie Wilbekin (13) also reached double figures.
Kenny Boynton had nine points and 10 assists, just shy of his first double-double.
Marshall Henderson, the Southeastern Conference's leading scorer, led the Rebels (17-4, 6-2) with 25 points on 8-of-15 shooting. Henderson was 7 of 11 from behind the arc.
No. 5 DUKE 79, FLORIDA STATE 60
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Seth Curry scored 21 points, Quinn Cook added 18 and Duke cruised past defending Atlantic Coast Conference champion Florida State.
The Blue Devils (19-2, 6-2 ACC) scored the game's first 11 points, raced to an 18-2 lead and never looked back, building a 26-point advantage on the way to a 42-22 cushion at halftime. Curry, who had 13 points at the break, was 7 of 11 from the field and 5 of 7 from behind the arc. Cook was 4 of 6 from long range.
Rasheed Sulaimon added 14 points and Amile Jefferson 11 for Duke, which held its largest lead at 50-22 just 2 minutes into the second half. Duke shot 60.8 percent and connected on 11 of 18 from 3-point range as Florida State allowed a season high in points.
Aaron Thomas led the Seminoles (12-9, 4-4) with 14 points.
PITTSBURGH 65, No. 6 SYRACUSE 55
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Tray Woodall had 13 points, four assists and three steals as Pittsburgh continued its mastery of top 10 teams at home by pulling away from Syracuse.
Trey Zeigler added six points, four rebounds and four assists off the bench for the Panthers (18-5, 6-4 Big East), who improved to 13-1 against teams ranked in the top 10 since the Petersen Events Center opened a decade ago.
C.J. Fair led Syracuse (18-3, 6-2) with 20 points and Brandon Triche scored 14 but the Orange never led in the second half while losing two straight games for the first time in nearly two years. Michael Carter-Williams added 13 points for Syracuse but the nation's leader in assists finished with just two — nearly seven below his average.
No. 7 GONZAGA 65, SAN DIEGO 63
SAN DIEGO (AP) — David Stockton hit a runner in the lane with 55.9 seconds left after Kelly Olynyk scored on consecutive possessions and No. 7 Gonzaga held off San Diego for its fourth straight win.
The Toreros still had a chance after Olynyk missed the front end of a one-and-one with 8 seconds left, but Elias Harris blocked Ken Rancifer's shot and the Toreros couldn't get off another. Harris scored 18 points for Gonzaga (21-2, 8-0 West Coast Conference), which has won nine straight against the Toreros and 31 of 33.
Johnny Dee scored a game-high 21 points for USD (11-12, 4-4).
No. 8 ARIZONA 79, WASHINGTON ST. 65
PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Mark Lyons scored 20 points as No. 8 Arizona beat Washington State79-65 on Saturday, the Wildcats' fifth consecutive win over the Cougars.
Solomon Hill added 18 points for Arizona (19-2, 7-2 Pac-12), which swept the Washington schools on the road.
Brock Motum and DaVonte Lacy each scored 15 points to lead Washington State (11-11, 2-7), which has lost four of its past five games. D.J. Shelton added 13 points and 10 rebounds.

No. 9 BUTLER 75, RHODE ISLAND 68
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Rotnei Clarke scored 23 points and Roosevelt Jones added 18 to lead Butler past Rhode Island.
Clarke scored 12 points in the first 11 minutes of the second half. The Bulldogs (18-4, 5-2 Atlantic 10) trailed 32-30 at the break, then went on a 15-3 run.
Nikola Malesevic led Rhode Island (6-14, 1-6) with 18 points in the Rams' fourth straight loss.
Butler began the game looking like the team that lost 75-58 at Saint Louis early in the week. The Bulldogs went down 25-16 in the first half — their largest deficit of the game. But they came storming out to start the second half, looking like the squad that has beaten three top 10 teams this season. They held Rhode Island without a field goal until the 13:24 mark of the half.
CALIFORNIA 58, No. 10 OREGON 54
BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — Justin Cobbs made an 18-foot jumper with 1:35 remaining and then added a pair of free throws as California hung on to hand Oregon its second straight loss to an unranked team this week.
Allen Crabbe and Richard Solomon scored 13 points apiece, and Tyrone Wallace added 12 while helping the Golden Bears (13-8, 5-4 Pac-12) win back-to-back games for the first time since December.
Tony Woods had 14 points and eight rebounds for Oregon but failed to get off a potential tying shot after grabbing E.J. Singler's missed 3-pointer with 5.2 seconds left. The Ducks (18-4, 7-2) were held scoreless over the final 4 minutes.
No. 11 OHIO STATE 63, NEBRASKA 56
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Lenzelle Smith Jr. had 21 points and Ohio State held off a late Nebraska surge.
The Cornhuskers (11-12, 2-8 Big Ten) went on a 15-5 run and cut Ohio State's lead to 58-53 on David Rivers' free throws with 2:40 remaining. Following three Nebraska misses, Aaron Craft hit a pair of free throws with 56 seconds left to put the Buckeyes (17-4, 7-2 Big Ten) up seven.
Ohio State won the game at the free throw line. The Buckeyes made 23 of 28, including all 10 of their first-half attempts. Nebraska was just 4 of 5 from the line.
Ohio State won its third straight game and seventh in a row against Nebraska, including all four since the Cornhuskers joined the Big Ten. The Buckeyes travel to No. 1 Michigan on Tuesday.
No. 14 MIAMI 79, No. 19 N.C. STATE 78
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Reggie Johnson tipped in a missed shot with 0.8 seconds left to lift Miami over North Carolina State.
Johnson's left-handed tip in traffic off a miss by Shane Larkin capped a back-and-forth second half and kept the Hurricanes (17-3, 8-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) unbeaten in ACC play. Johnson finished with 15 points in his best performance since returning from a broken left thumb four games ago.
Durand Scott led Miami with 18 points and Julian Gamble added 16 to help the Hurricanes win their ninth straight game, a run that included a blowout of then-No. 1 Duke last week.
C.J. Leslie had 18 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Wolfpack (16-6, 5-4), who played without starting point guard Lorenzo Brown due to an ankle injury. N.C. State nearly won when freshman Rodney Purvis launched a heave from beyond halfcourt at the horn, a shot that hit the rim and rattled out.
NORTHERN IOWA 57, No. 15 WICHITA STATE 52
CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Anthony James scored 16 points and Northern Iowa beat Wichita State, sending the Shockers to their first losing streak of the season.
Seth Tuttle had eight points, eight rebounds and four blocks for the Panthers (12-11, 5-6 Missouri Valley Conference). They took control with a 14-0 run in the second half and became the fourth Valley team in the last 23 games to beat Wichita State at home.
The Shockers (19-4, 8-3) pulled to 52-50 on Carl Hall's steal and bucket with 1:18 left, but Tuttle blocked Nick Wiggins' try that would have tied it and then sealed the win with a breakaway dunk.
Hall led Wichita State with 20 points. The Shockers, who lost to Indiana State on Tuesday, have dropped a game behind league-leading Creighton.
No. 17 MISSOURI 91, AUBURN 77
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Keion Bell scored 24 points and Earnest Ross added 23, both season highs, as Missouri used another strong second half to beat Auburn.
Ross hit five 3-pointers off the bench in his first game against his former team. The 6-foot-5, 222-pound guard played two seasons at Auburn, leading the team with 13.1 points and 6.6 rebounds per game.
The teams combined for 49 fouls and 69 free throws but the sluggish pace didn't seem to affect Missouri (16-5, 5-3 Southeastern Conference), which shot 54.5 percent from the floor after shooting 38 percent in a 73-70 loss at LSU on Wednesday.
The Tigers moved to 13-0 at Mizzou Arena, joined by only Florida in the SEC as unbeaten teams at home.
Frankie Sullivan led Auburn (8-13, 2-6) with 12 points.
No. 18 KANSAS STATE 52, OKLAHOMA 50

The foul shots ended an 8-0 run by the Sooners in the final 2 minutes that tied the game with 13 seconds to play.
Rodriguez was fouled on a jumper in the lane and made both free throws to put Kansas State back in front. Sam Grooms had a chance to win it for the Sooners, but his 3-point attempt at the buzzer was short.
Will Spradling led the Wildcats (17-4, 6-2 Big 12) with 12 points, including five in a row after the Sooners pulled within one with 11:27 to go. With the win, the Wildcats remain in second place in the Big 12, one game behind Kansas. Their leading scorer, Rodney McGruder, was held to seven points on 2-for-8 shooting.
Romero Osby had 13 points to lead the Sooners (14-6, 5-3).
No. 20 NEW MEXICO 75, NEVADA 62
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Chad Adams hit two 3-pointers during a key second-half run that carried New Mexico past Nevada.
With the Lobos (19-3, 6-1 Mountain West) trailing 51-50, Adams started a 10-2 surge and then capped it as New Mexico went ahead to stay at 60-53.
Hugh Greenwood led New Mexico with 15 points, while Malik Story had 20 for the Wolf Pack (11-10, 2-5). Nevada's Deonte Burton, who came into the game leading the conference in scoring at 18.5 points per game, finished with 13, including 11 in the second half.
New Mexico's bench outscored Nevada's reserves 32-6.
No. 21 CREIGHTON 75, BRADLEY 58
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Doug McDermott scored 25 points, including nine during a decisive 12-0 run, and Creighton overcame poor 3-point shooting in the first half to defeat Bradley.

AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) — Michael Lyons scored 20 points and Air Force beat San Diego State, overcoming a 25-point performance by Aztecs star Jamaal Franklin.
Franklin and James Rahon missed potential game-tying 3-pointers in the waning seconds.
The Falcons (14-6, 5-2 Mountain West Conference) won their fifth straight at Clune Arena, while the Aztecs (16-5, 4-3) lost for only the second time in their last 10 games against Air Force.
The Falcons used a 19-2 run to take control at 59-47, then held on as Franklin scored 18 of his 25 points in the second half. He also pulled down 10 rebounds and was 11 for 12 from the foul line, his only miss a big one with less than a minute left and the Aztecs trailing by two.

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Sean Kilpatrick scored 21 points, Cashmere Wright added 17 and Cincinnati held off Seton Hall after blowing nearly all of a 20-point lead.
Cincinnati (18-4, 6-3 Big East) was up 48-28 just 5 minutes into the second half but twice allowed the Pirates (13-9, 2-7) to get within four. The Bearcats, who entered 14th in the 15-team conference in free throw shooting at 64.9 percent, finished 21 of 27 (77.8 percent) from the line, making eight of their last nine.
