Bloomington, Ind. • Indiana beat the nation's No. 1 team Saturday night and is now in position to reclaim the top spot.

Cody Zeller scored 19 points and Victor Oladipo had 15, leading the No. 3 Hoosiers to an 81-73 victory over top-ranked Michigan.

It's the third time in school history that the Hoosiers (19-2, 8-1 Big Ten) have beaten the No. 1 team at home, and the first time they've done it in back-to-back seasons. The win gives Indiana a five-game winning streak, sole possession of the Big Ten lead and likely the top spot in the country again when Monday's rankings come out.

It all came on a night when Indiana students were loud and raucous, even dancing in the stands. But they did not rush the court in full force as they did in 2001 when the Hoosiers upset Michigan State or in 2011 when they took down Kentucky, their other home wins against No. 1 teams.

Oklahoma State 85 No. 2 Kansas 80 • At Lawrence, Kan., Markel Brown scored 28 points, Marcus Smart added 25 and Oklahoma State held on to upset Kansas, ending the Jayhawks' nation-leading 18-game winning streak.

Smart had a pair of key putbacks in the closing minutes, helping the Cowboys (15-5, 5-3 Big 12) go on a 13-2 run that turned a 66-62 deficit into a 73-68 lead with just over a minute left.

Pittsburgh 65, No. 6 Syracuse 55 • At Pittsburgh, Tray Woodall had 13 points, four assists and three steals as Pittsburgh continued its mastery of top 10 teams at home by pulling away from Syracuse. —
