No. 3 Indiana knocks off No. 1 Michigan

No. 2 Kansas loses first at home in 33 games

 

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — 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. — 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.
