Cody Zeller scored 19 points and Victor Oladipo had 15, leading No. 3 Indiana to an 81-73 victory over No. 1 Michigan on Saturday night.

It's the third time in school history the Hoosiers (20-2, 8-1 Big Ten) have beaten the No. 1 team at home, and it's the first time they've done it in back-to-back seasons. The win gives Indiana sole possession of the Big Ten lead and likely the No. 1 ranking it held for the first seven weeks this season when the new poll comes out Monday.

In addition to Michigan's defeat, No. 2 Kansas lost 85-80 to Oklahoma State.

The Wolverines (20-2, 7-2) were led by Trey Burke with 25 points and Tim Hardaway Jr. with 18, but they couldn't extend their four-game winning streak.

Indiana took an early 20-7 lead and Michigan tied it only one time after that, at 40. The Hoosiers put it away with a late 7-2 run.
