Manny Arop scored 17 points, including a celebratory slam in the final minute, to lead Indiana State to a 68-55 victory over No. 15 Wichita State, snapping the Shockers' 19-game home winning streak.

The Sycamores (14-7, 7-3 Missouri Valley) stayed in the conference race with their first victory over a ranked team in five tries this season. Davonte Brown and Jake Odum both added 10 points.

Cleanthony Early had 15 points and Demetric Williams added 14 for first-place Wichita State (19-3, 8-2), which shot 27.1 percent from the field. The Shockers had just six field goals in the second half.

South Central graduate Jake Kitchell had two points, two rebounds, a block and an assist for Indiana State.

Indiana State's victory, combined with wins over Miami and Mississippi, could help the Sycamores' NCAA tournament chances.

In coach Greg Lansing's three seasons at Indiana State, the Sycamores are 38-3 when holding an opponent to less than 63 points.

No. 23 Minnesota 84, Nebraska 65: Rodney Williams snapped out of a funk to score 23 points, and Minnesota got a much-needed confidence boost with a victory over Nebraska.

Andre Hollins scored 14 points and Austin Hollins had 13 points and five assists for the Golden Gophers (16-5, 4-4 Big Ten), who snapped a four-game losing skid that caused them to plummet in the rankings.

Ray Gallegos scored 30 points for Nebraska (11-11, 2-7).

No. 11 Ohio State 58, Wisconsin 49: Deshaun Thomas scored 25 points, including 10 during a game-breaking 15-0 second-half run, to lead Ohio State past Wisconsin.

The leading scorer in the Big Ten, Thomas took over the game as both teams tried to gain leverage in a typically physical matchup between them.

The victory moved Ohio State (16-4, 6-2 Big Ten) into third place in the Big Ten and dropped Wisconsin (14-7, 5-3) two games off the pace set by co-leaders Indiana and Michigan (6-1).

Traevon Jackson, the son of Buckeyes great Jimmy Jackson, led the Badgers with 12 points in the arena where his dad's jersey hangs from the rafters.

Virginia 58, No. 19 N.C. State 55: Joe Harris scored 22 points, seven during a game-ending 13-6 run, and Virginia (15-5, 5-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) beat North Carolina State (16-5, 5-3), the Cavaliers' fourth straight victory. 

Evansville 54, Northern Iowa 51, OT: Colt Ryan scored 23 points, including a jumper with 33 seconds left in overtime that ended up being the winning score, in Evansville's victory over Northern Iowa (11-11, 4-6 Missouri Valley).

Ned Cox and Troy Taylor added nine points apiece for the Purple Aces (13-9, 6-4), and Taylor pulled down 12 rebounds. Egidijus Mockevicius had six points and 13 rebounds.

Bradley 83, Illinois State 77: Walt Lemon Jr. scored a career-high 27 points on 9-of-16 shooting, helping Bradley snap its losing streak against intrastate rival Illinois State.

Lemon added five rebounds and five steals. Tyshon Pickett and Dyricus Simms-Edwards chipped in 15 points apiece for the Braves (13-9, 5-5 Missouri Valley), who had lost their last seven games against Illinois State. Simms-Edwards, whose average of 3.00 steals per game was fourth in Division I entering the game, had four steals Tuesday.

John Wilkins and Jackie Carmichael scored 16 points each for the Redbirds (12-10, 3-7).
