BIG TEN PRESS RELEASE

Indiana 83, Purdue 55
Now that Indiana (23-3, 11-2) has bucked the trend of No. 1 teams losing, it can stop worrying about votes and start focusing on more important things like the Big Ten title chase. Will Sheehey scored a career-high 22 points, set a new school record by going 9 for 9 from the field and led the Hoosiers to an 83-55 victory that was never really close. Last week, the Hoosiers got a reprieve after losing at Illinois before winning at No. 10 Ohio State. They held onto the top spot only after the next four highest-ranked teams all lost, too. But Saturday's win assured the Hoosiers of hanging onto at least a share of the league lead as they head into Tuesday night's showdown with No. 8 Michigan State. The Spartans faced Nebraska later Saturday. RECAP

Michigan State 73, Nebraska 64
Keith Appling scored 16 points to go over 1,000 for his career and Adreian Payne added 15 points and 14 rebounds in eighth-ranked Michigan State's 73-64 victory over Nebraska on Saturday night. The win allowed Michigan State (22-4, 11-2) to remain tied with Indiana for first place in the Big Ten. The Cornhuskers (12-14, 3-10), who have lost seven straight against opponents ranked in the top 10, never led but were within a point with 14 minutes left. The Spartans put away their fifth straight win with a 20-6 run. Michigan State blocked a season-high 12 shots, with Branden Dawson matching his career high with four swats. RECAP
