Indiana (14-8, 4-5 Big Ten) had lost three of four but led most of the way in improving to 12-2 at Assembly Hall.

Noah Vonleh added 10 points and 12 rebounds for the Hoosiers, who shot 54 percent to the Wolver­ines’ 40 percent.

Michigan (16-5, 8-1) produced a season-low point total as a 10-game winning streak came to an end. Derrick Walton Jr. scored 13 points and Caris LeVert had 12. They were the only Wolverines in double figures, as leading scorer Nik Stauskas was held to six points.

NO. 13 CINCINNATI 50, SOUTH FLORIDA 45

In Cincinnati, Sean Kilpatrick overcame an off-target performance by scoring 10 of his 18 points in the closing minutes, rallying Cincinnati (21-2, 10-0 American Athletic) to its 14th consecutive victory, over South Florida (11-11, 2-7).

The Bearcats trailed by three points with 8 minutes left. Kil­patrick, who leads the conference in scoring, took over the game and extended Cincinnati’s best start since the 2001-02 season, when it was in Conference USA.

The senior guard made six free throws and two driving lay-ins, scoring 10 of Cincinnati’s final 12 points. Justin Jackson added 15 points as Cincinnati won its 17th consecutive home game, 15 of them this season.

South Florida suffered another close loss to the Bearcats, who broke a tie game for a 61-54 win on Jan. 18.

VIRGINIA 48, NO. 18 PITTSBURGH 45

In Pittsburgh, Malcolm Brogdon made a last-second 3-pointer to give Virginia (17-5, 8-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) a victory over Pittsburgh (18-4, 6-3).

Brogdon finished with 16 points for Virginia, which maintained sole possession of second place in the ACC. The Cavaliers have won five consecutive games since losing at Duke on Jan. 13.

Pitt (18-4, 6-3) lost consecutive games for the first time this season and fell into a third-place tie with Duke in the conference standings. The Panthers have lost three of their past five after opening with 16 wins in their first 17 games.
