Hoosiers grow up in 75-72 upset of No. 3 Wisconsin

; Michigan rolls over Penn State

(Continued)

BLOOMINGTON, IND. —

But Wisconsin tied the score at 61 and closed to 73-72 on Kaminsky’s putback with 28.5 seconds left.
Ferrell then made two free throws, the Badgers missed the two 3s — and the crowd went wild over the Hoosiers their biggest win of the season.
“We’re not going to sit and watch this tape and have a pizza party and get some ice cream and say ‘Wow, we couldn’t have played any better,”’ said Crean, who beat Ryan for the first time since he was hired by Indiana. “We’re not. I think we’ve got a lot of potential, but you coach this game expecting to win.”
 
Michigan 80, Penn State 67
ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Derrick Walton is settling into a comfort zone — just in time for Michigan’s first difficult stretch of the Big Ten schedule.
Walton scored 16 points — including the game’s first eight — and the Wolverines remained unbeaten in conference play with a victory over Penn State on Tuesday night. Nik Stauskas scored 13 of his 21 points in the second half for Michigan, which now faces Wisconsin, Iowa and Michigan State in succession.
“The first couple games, everything was going really fast for me,” said Walton, the freshman who has replaced star Trey Burke as Michigan’s point guard. “Just watching film and stuff like that, it’s just really slowing down the game.”
The Wolverines (12-4, 4-0) led 47-45 when a 3-pointer by Stauskas started a 19-5 run that gave Michigan a comfortable advantage. Glenn Robinson III added 15 points for the Wolverines.
D.J. Newbill and Tim Frazier scored 17 points apiece for Penn State (9-9, 0-5), but those two backcourt standouts weren’t enough against a balanced Michigan team. The Wolverines have won six straight, all without star big man Mitch McGary, who is out indefinitely because of a back injury.
Michigan and rival Michigan State are the Big Ten’s only teams without a conference loss.
