Associated Press

BIG TEN

Minnesota 95, No. 20 Iowa 89

Austin Hollins scored a career-high 27 points on 8-for-10 shooting, DeAndre Mathieu had 19 points and seven assists and Minnesota bounced back from a monthlong slump with an upset of visiting Iowa on Tuesday night.

Hollins made all seven of his free throws for the Gophers (18-11, 7-9 Big Ten), who won for just the third time in their last nine games by making 13 of their last 14 free throws over the final 70 seconds. Charles Buggs came off the end of the bench to score a career-high 13 points.

Roy Devyn Marble had only five of his 24 points in the second half for the Hawkeyes (19-8, 8-6).

No. 14 Wisconsin 69, Indiana 58

Sam Dekker scored 16 points and host Wisconsin shrugged off a slow start. The Hoosiers (15-12, 5-9 Big Ten) held Wisconsin (23-5, 10-5) to its lowest point production in the first half this season, taking a 29-19 lead.

The Badgers opened the second half by outscoring the Hoosiers 9-2 in a span of just over 3 minutes and then used a 22-5 run to put the game away.

Rodney Hood scored 21 points to help host Duke beat Virginia Tech. Rasheed Sulaimon added 15 points for the Blue Devils (23-6, 12-4 Atlantic Coast Conference), who jumped to a 24-4 lead midway through the first half and never trailed.
