BIG TEN:
Indiana 75, 
No. 3 Wisconsin 72

Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell scored 25 points Tuesday night, leading host Indiana to a stunning upset over previously unbeaten Wisconsin.

The Badgers (16-1, 3-1) were trying to become the first team to win 13 straight games over the Hoosiers (12-5, 2-2).

Wisconsin started the night as one of Division I’s four remaining unbeaten teams, and it looked like it would stay that way when the Badgers took a 10-point lead with 13:27 to play.

But the Hoosiers, playing their best game of the season, answered with 12 straight points to take a 54-52 lead with 9 minutes left.

Indiana led 70-65 with 2:03 remaining but still had to fend off Wisconsin’s late challenge. Ferrell made two free throws with 18.3 seconds left to give Indiana the three-point lead, and both of Wisconsin’s potentially tying 3-pointers came up short.

Traevon Jackson led the Badgers with a career-high 21 points.

TOP 25:
No. 5 Wichita State 72, 
Bradley 50

Fred VanVleet had 22 points and seven rebounds and Wichita State remained undefeated with a victory over visiting Bradley.

Darius Carter added 11 points for the Shockers (18-0, 5-0 Missouri Valley Conference), who extended school records for winning streak and best start to a season in the first game as a top 5 team since 1981.

Walt Lemon scored 12 points, Tyshon Pickett added 11 and Omari Grier had 10 for Bradley (6-12, 1-4). Those three were a combined 12-of-37 from the field.

No. 7 Florida 72, 
Georgia 50

Michael Frazier II scored a career-high 21 points and host Florida handled Georgia, setting a school record for consecutive home wins.

The undermanned Gators won their 25th straight at the O’Connell Center, topping the previous mark set between March 2006 and November 2007.

Juwan Parker led Georgia (8-7, 2-1) with 13 points while Marcus Thornton added 11 points and seven rebounds.

Dorian Finney-Smith scored 14 points for Florida.

No. 19 Cincinnati 69, 
Temple 58

Sean Kilpatrick emerged from his 3-point shooting slump, and Justin Jackson had a double-double, rallying Cincinnati from a late deficit to a victory over short-handed Temple.

Cincinnati (16-2, 5-0) remained alone atop the American Athletic Conference with its ninth straight win.

Kilpatrick finished with 23 points, matching his season high. Jackson had 15 points, 10 rebounds and six blocked shots, one shy of his career high.

Dalton Pepper led the Owls with 21 points.

No. 20 Creighton 88,
Butler 60

Doug McDermott scored 24 of his 28 points in the first half and Creighton defeated fellow Big East newcomer Butler for its 10th straight win.

The Bluejays (15-2, 5-0) closed the first half on a 32-6 run to lead 53-24, and Butler (10-7, 0-5) never got closer than 25 points the rest of the way.

No. 22 Pittsburgh 81,
Georgia Tech 74

Talib Zanna scored 22 points, James Robinson added 16 and Pittsburgh pulled away in the second half, remaining perfect in the Atlantic Coast Conference with a victory over host Georgia Tech.

Trae Golden led Georgia Tech with 22 points.

Kansas State 72, 
No. 25 Oklahoma 66

Marcus Foster scored 18 points, Nino Williams made four clinching free throws in the closing seconds and host Kansas State held on to beat Oklahoma.

Shane Southwell added 16 points for the Wildcats (13-4, 3-1 Big 12), who rallied from a 62-56 deficit with just over 5 minutes to play to turn back the streaking Sooners.

Ryan Spangler had a career-high 21 points and 14 rebounds for Oklahoma (13-4, 2-2).

MID-AMERICAN:
Eastern Michigan 56, 
Western Michigan 37

Darell Combs and Mike Talley scored 14 points each as host Eastern Michigan clamped down on Western Michigan — which hit just four field goals before halftime — en route to a victory.

David Brown led the Broncos (9-6, 2-1) with 18 points before being ejected on a flagrant foul.

Eastern Michigan (10-6, 2-1) had 18 steals — Daylen Harrison (St. Vincent-St. Mary) with a career-high five.
