No. 3 Indiana knocks off No. 1 Michigan

No. 2 Kansas loses first at home in 33 games

(Continued)

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. — 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
NORMAN, Okla. — Angel Rodriguez hit two free throws with 5.6 seconds remaining to give Kansas State a victory over Oklahoma.
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.
