Indiana's Cody Zeller takes a rebound back to the basket for a dunk against Michigan.

It’s the third time in school history the Hoosiers (20-2, 8-1 Big Ten) have beaten the No. 1 team at home, and it’s the first time they’ve done it in back-to-back seasons. The win gives Indiana sole possession of the Big Ten lead and likely the No. 1 ranking it held for the first seven weeks this season when the new poll comes out Monday.

The Wolverines (20-2, 7-2) were led by Trey Burke with 25 points and Tim Hardaway Jr. with 18.

Indiana took an early 20-7 lead and Michigan tied it only one time after that, at 40. The Hoosiers put it away with a late 7-2 run.

OKLAHOMA STATE 85, NO. 2 KANSAS 80

In Lawrence, Kan., Markel Brown scored 28 points, Marcus Smart added 25 and Oklahoma State (15-5, 5-3 Big 12) held on to upset Kansas (19-2, 7-1), ending the Jayhawks’ nation-leading 18-game winning streak.

Smart had a pair of key putbacks in the closing minutes, helping the Cowboys go on a 13-2 run that turned a 66-62 deficit into a 73-68 lead with just over a minute left.

The Jayhawks trimmed the Cowboys’ lead to 81-80 on a layup by Elijah Johnson with 18.8 seconds left. But freshman Phil Forte, an 89-percent foul shooter, made both of his tries for the Cowboys with 7.9 seconds to go.

PITTSBURGH 65, NO. 6 SYRACUSE 55

In Pittsburgh, Tray Woodall had 13 points as Pittsburgh (18-5, 6-4 Big East) continued its mastery of Top 10 teams at home, beating Syracuse (18-3, 6-2).
