Peter Jok put the University of Iowa men's basketball team on his back, scoring 15 of his game-high 35 points in overtime to lead the University of Iowa men's basketball team to a 96-90 victory over Indiana on Tuesday night on Mediacom Court.

D.J. Wilson hit a three-pointer with two seconds remaining in regulation to send the game to overtime, but the University of Michigan men's basketball team's comeback efforts came up just short in an 83-78 loss at Minnesota on Sunday evening (Feb. 19) inside Williams Arena.

The Maize and Blue got off to a quick start, taking an 8-2 lead, including a 6-0 run that forced Wisconsin to call an early timeout at the 16:37 mark. The Badgers then went on a 9-2 run to take their first lead of the game, 11-10, with 12:17 remaining in the opening half.

Malcolm Hill scored 14 points and Te'Jon Lucas had 11 points and seven assists as the Illini fell to Penn State, 83-70, Saturday at State Farm Center.

Penn State used a 14-2 run to end the first half to lead 41-29 at the break, and then led by as many as 19 in the second half before Illinois closed to within five, 62-57, after a 14-0 run. However, the Nittany Lions pulled away down the stretch thanks to 90 percent free throw shooting.

One of the few bright spots from Nebraska's gut-wrenching 70-69 overtime loss to No. 7 Wisconsin on Thursday night came after the game, when Ed Morrow gave a favorable health report.
