Hoosiers stun No. 3 Badgers
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Kevin "Yogi" Ferrell scored 25 points Tuesday night, leading Indiana to a 75-72 upset of previously unbeaten Wisconsin.
The third-ranked Badgers (16-1, 3-1 Big Ten) were trying to become the first team to ever win 13 straight games over the Hoosiers (12-5, 2-2).
Wisconsin started the night as one of Division I's four remaining unbeaten teams and took a 10-point lead with 13:27 to play. But the Hoosiers answered with 12 straight points to take a 54-52 lead with 9 minutes left.
Indiana led 70-65 with 2:03 remaining but still had to fend off Wisconsin's late challenge. Ferrell made two free throws with 18.3 seconds left to give Indiana the three-point lead and both of Wisconsin's potentially tying 3-pointers came up short.
Traevon Jackson led the Badgers with a career-high 21 points.
Senior Will Sheehey and freshman Stanford Robinson both had 13 points for Indiana.
No. 5 Wichita State 72,Bradley 50

No. 7 Florida 72, Georgia 50
At Gainesville, Fla., Michael Frazier II scored a career-high 21 points and Florida set a school record for consecutive home wins.

Arkansas 87,No. 13 Kentucky 85, OT
At Fayetteville, Ark., Michael Qualls slammed home a thundering two-hand dunk with .2 seconds remaining in overtime for Arkansas.
The win ends a two-game losing streak for the Razorbacks (12-4, 1-2 Southeastern Conference), who have won three straight at home over the Wildcats.
Qualls, who finished with 18 points, flew in from the baseline as time was winding down and corralled Ky Madden's 3-point miss for the dunk.
The game appeared headed for a second overtime after Young's 3-pointer with 10.2 seconds left tied the game at 85. Kentucky had a four-game winning streak snapped.
No. 19 Cincinnati 69, Temple 58
At Cincinnati, Sean Kilpatrick emerged from his 3-point shooting slump Tuesday night, and Justin Jackson had a double-double as Cincinnati rallied from a late deficit.

No. 20 Creighton 88, Butler 60
At Omaha, Neb., Doug McDermott scored 24 of his 28 points in the first half and Creighton defeated fellow Big East newcomer Butler for its 10th straight win.
The Bluejays (15-2, 5-0) closed the first half on a 32-6 run to lead 53-24, and Butler (10-7, 0-5) never got closer than 25 points the rest of the way.
