Indiana Basketball: Saturday look around the Big Ten

No. 14 Ohio State drops Iowa 82-64 takes Big Ten lead

A top five Big Ten matchup between Michigan State and Purdue was sure to launch the victor into a high seed with a quality win like this.

That said, Bridges isn't why Michigan State was able to beat Purdue on Saturday. Miles Bridges was a one-man crew dribbling to his right and firing off a deep three to break the tie and defeat Purdue 68-65. Bridges finished with a team-high 20 points. The Hawkeyes, who are one of the best rebounding teams in the Big Ten, were outrebounded 33-29 and gave up 4 offensive boards in the first half.

Michigan State closes its regular season with three of its last four games on the road, beginning with Tuesday's matchup at Minnesota. Michigan State jumped in front for the first time when Bridges made a jumper near the top of the key with 9:06 left.

The win made Alabama (16-9, 7-5 SEC) 5-0 versus ranked teams this season and kept it in contention for one of the top four spots in the conference. In the 10 games since that loss, Bridges is averaging 19.3 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.6 assists, while shooting 53.5 percent from the field. That, Izzo admitted, made Saturday's game even bigger.

As big as that play was, Goins was equally as important to the Spartans for how he held Purdue's Vincent Edwards to just eight points on 3-for-11 shooting.

Hell, they needed everyone on their bench on Saturday. As one of the best 3-point shooting teams in the country, nobody expects them to shoot 30-percent from beyond the arc, but that's exactly what they did. A 3-pointer the right wing by Bridges with 2.7 seconds left sealed the win.

Three days later, the Buckeyes stunned No. 1 Michigan State 80-64.

After competing with one of the best teams in the Big Ten on Tuesday, Iowa (12-15, 3-11 Big Ten) was back to its old ways on February 10, suffering an 83-64 loss to No. 14 Ohio State (22-5, 13-1 Big Ten) in Columbus.

No. 5 Xavier 72, Creighton 71: Quentin Goodin made two free throws with three-tenths of a second left, allowing Xavier (23-2, 11-2) to halt Creighton (18-7, 8-5) in Big East action. Grant Williams scored 12 of his 16 points in the second half. He said on Friday that Iowa is playing as well as anyone else in the league, citing the Hawkeyes' 96-93 loss to Michigan State as evidence.

Joel Berry's 16 points and Cameron Johnson's 13 points also boosted the Tar Heels (19-7, 8-5 ACC), who were coming off an emotional home victory against No. 9 Duke just 40 hours earlier. Wigginton then beat the shot clock with a long 3, and Jackson hit a pair of free throws to clinch the win.

Dejan Vasiljevic led the Hurricanes with 17 points and Chris Lykes added 16 as Miami (18-6, 7-5) snapped its three-game winning streak. IN knocked out IL in the fifth-place match, while Ohio State earned a victory over Minnesota to finish seventh.

However, Winston settled in to lead the Michigan State offense.

Torin Dorn scored 21 points to lead the Wolfpack. MSU hasn't been great at taking care of the ball this year, but against Purdue, the Spartans turned the ball over just six times, which was pivotal.

The Hawkeyes (12-15 overall, 3-11 Big Ten) only led for a few minutes in the game, opening an 18-15 first-half lead after Bohannon spearheaded a 7-0 scoring run.

Purdue (23-4, 12-2) didn't hit a single 3-pointer in the second half.

The Hurricanes led 70-63 with 6:17 left- their biggest lead of the game - before missing their last nine shots and turning the ball over five times.
