MADISON, Wis. — Marcus Landry and Michael Flowers both scored 14 points and No. 11 Wisconsin held off Michigan 64-61 on Tuesday night to remain undefeated in the Big Ten.
Michigan had a chance to take the lead with less than a minute left, but Manny Harris lost the ball as he tried to drive the lane surrounded by Wisconsin defenders.
Joe Krabbenhoft grabbed the loose ball for the Badgers (16-2, 6-0), and Landry hit a 3-pointer at the other end to seal the win.
Michigan (5-14, 1-6) came in with the worst defense in the Big Ten and the 10th-ranked offense. But the Wolverines managed to hang around for much of the game with a dominant performance on the boards.
OMAHA, Neb. — Josh Young hit a tie-breaking 3-pointer in overtime and No. 22 Drake celebrated its first national ranking in 33 years with a victory over Missouri Valley Conference nemesis Creighton.
Young, the Valley’s leading scorer, had missed the last three games with a sprained right ankle and was wearing a walking boot as recently as Monday. He wasn’t much of a factor against the Bluejays until he hit his big 3 from the top of the key to break a 54-54 tie.
CINCINNATI — Kia Vaughn scored a season-high 17 points, and Heather Zurich added a career-high 16, leading the Scarlet Knights to a victory over Cincinnati that extended their longest winning streak in two years.
SOUTH BEND, Ind. — Deidre Naughton scored 20 points and DePaul shot a season-high 60 percent to beat No. 16 Notre Dame.
NEW YORK — Shavonte Zellous scored 28 points and No. 19 Pittsburgh won its ninth straight game.
