Northwestern 55, No. 12 Minnesota 48: Jared Swopshire scored 16 points to lead Northwestern to a victory over Minnesota (15-4, 3-3 Big Ten).

La Salle 54, No. 9 Butler 53: Ramon Galloway went the length of the court for the winning basket with 2.7 seconds left to send La Salle to a victory over Butler.

Officials huddled with both coaches and they decided the final score stood. La Salle hadn't defeated a top 10 team since 1980.
