No. 1 Indiana 83, ?No. 14 North Carolina 59
Cody Zeller had 20 points and eight rebounds, leading host Indiana to a stunning rout of North Carolina in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.
Victor Oladipo and Will Sheehey both added 19 points for the Hoosiers (7-0), who have won 34 consecutive November games at home.
The Tar Heels (5-2) were led by Dexter Strickland with 14 points and Marcus Paige with 11 — not nearly enough when North Carolina managed three points and one field goal in the first 8˝ minutes of the second half.
For 16 minutes, the college powerhouses battled to a 31-31 draw.
But Zeller scored six points in a 15-6 run to close the first half and played a key role in the Hoosiers’ 13-0 spurt to open the second half that turned the game.
No. 3 Michigan 79, ?No. 18 N.C. State 72
Trey Burke had 18 points and 11 assists, and host Michigan held off a late rally by North Carolina State.
Freshman Nik Stauskas led the Wolverines (6-0) with 20 points and Tim Hardaway Jr. added 16, but it was Burke who controlled the game, equaling his previous career high of nine assists in the first half and going the whole game without a turnover.
N.C. State (4-2) trailed 73-58 before going on a 10-0 run capped by T.J. Warren’s layup with 2:11 remaining. Hardaway answered with a driving bank shot. It was 75-70 when the Wolfpack forced a turnover and called a timeout with 54.4 seconds to play, but C.J. Leslie was called for an offensive foul.
Leslie appeared to swing his left arm a bit while backing down against Michigan’s Mitch McGary. N.C. State coach Mark Gottfried was incensed by the call on the sideline.
Warren led the Wolfpack with 18 points.
No. 21 Minnesota 77, ?Florida State 68
Joe Coleman scored 16 points, Rodney Williams added 14 and visiting Minnesota beat defending Atlantic Coast Conference champion Florida State in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.
A 6-foot-4 sophomore guard, Coleman made 8 of 13 field goals and had 12 points in the second half while helping the Gophers build a 58-37 lead midway through.
Austin Hollins added 13 points and Andre Hollins had 12 for the Gophers, who never trailed. Elliott Eliason had 10 rebounds.
Minnesota (7-1) led 38-25 at halftime and by as many as 21 points in the second half. The Gophers’ lone loss was to No. 2 Duke in the Battle 4 Atlantis.
Reserve Terrance Shannon led Florida State (4-2) with 14 points and 11 rebounds. Michael Snaer finished with 12 points for Florida State despite making only 3 of 9 from the field. Terry Whisnant and Okaro White both had 10 points for the Seminoles.
The Gophers were playing their fourth game in six days.
