Victor Oladipo scored 19 points, and Yogi Ferrell added a season-high 15 to help No. 7 Indiana rout Penn State 72-49 on Wednesday night.

The Hoosiers (17-2, 5-1 Big Ten) survived a sluggish shooting first half with strong defense and used a fast second-half start to reassert their dominance in this series.

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). In a game where baskets were hard to come by at times, the Wildcats (12-8, 3-4) made just enough shots down the stretch to beat a ranked opponent for the second time in three games.

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. Fans stormed the court in a wild celebration for the biggest win for La Salle (13-5, 3-2 Atlantic 10) in 33 years. There was some confusion after Galloway's basket and fans were ordered off the court. Butler had attempted a last-second heave that was way off the mark. Officials huddled with both coaches and they decided the final score stood. La Salle hadn't defeated a top 10 team since 1980.

Illinois State 60, Indiana State 58: Johnny Hill scored 18 points; Jackie Carmichael added 16, and Illinois State (11-9, 2-6 Missouri Valley) rode a late run to a victory over Indiana State (12-7, 5-3).

Buffalo 66, Ball State 63: Javon McCrea scored 24 points on 10-of-12 shooting, and Will Regan's 3-pointer with 12 seconds left provided the game-winning points as Buffalo (7-12, 2-3 Mid-American) defeated Ball State  (7-10, 1-4). Jauwan Scaife had 18 points, and Majok Majok added 13 points and six rebounds for Ball State, which lost its fourth game in a row.

Evansville 66, Bradley 56: Colt Ryan scored 19 points to lead Evansville (12-8, 5-3 Missouri Valley) to a victory against Bradley (12-8, 4-4).

Loyola 67, Cleveland State 55: Christian Thomas scored a career-high 21 points and Ben Averkamp added 18 as Loyola (12-7, 2-4 Horizon League) defeated Cleveland State (10-11, 2-5) to snap a nine-game losing streak against the Vikings.

Illinois-Chicago 60, Milwaukee 50: Gary Talton scored 14 points, Joey Miller added 12 and Illinois-Chicago (12-8, 3-4 Horizon League) ended the game on a 19-0 run in a victory against Milwaukee (5-15, 1-5).

Northern Illinois 74, Central Michigan 61: Abdel Nader scored 23 points, and Northern Illinois (4-13, 2-3 Mid-American) hit 10 3-pointers en route to a victory over Central Michigan (9-9, 2-3).



No. 2 Notre Dame 73, Pittsburgh 47: Kayla McBride scored 19 points to help Notre Dame (17-1, 6-0 Big East) beat Pittsburgh (9-9, 0-5) for the Irish's 12th-straight win. Jewell Loyd added 14 points while Skylar Diggins had 13, all in the first half.
