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.



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.
