EDS: SUBS North Carolina-Florida State to CORRECT Hansbrough's free throws.|
By The Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -Tyler Hansbrough had 22 points and a career-high 21 rebounds and No. 4 North Carolina beat Florida State 84-73 in overtime on Sunday.
Florida State's Ryan Reid hit a desperation shot from the corner - the first 3-point attempt of his career - with 8.1 seconds left in regulation to tie the game at 67. North Carolina failed to get off a shot before the buzzer.
But Hansbrough, who was held without a field goal for the first 30 minutes of the game, had eight points and five rebounds in the overtime. Danny Green added 19 points for North Carolina (21-1, 6-1 Atlantic Coast Conference).
Hansbrough, the ACC's leading scorer and rebounder, was just 5-of-14 from the field, but was 12-of-14 at the free throw line.
Tar Heels point guard Ty Lawson, who is averaging 14.1 points and 6.0 assists, sprained his left ankle 4 minutes into game and did not return.
Jason Rich had 22 points for the Seminoles (13-10, 2-6).
No. 11 Indiana 75, Northwestern 63
D.J. White added 26 for the Hoosiers who pulled away in the closing minutes.
It was Indiana's 35th straight win at home against Northwestern since 1968 and it snapped a two-game losing streak for the Hoosiers (18-3, 7-1 Big Ten).
Northwestern (7-12, 0-8) cut Indiana's lead to 52-50 with under 12 minutes to go. The Wildcats, who shot 64 percent in the first half, then went cold and did not get another field goal until a 3-pointer by Michael Thompson with just over 2 minutes remaining.
Indiana took a 66-52 lead on Gordon's sixth 3-pointer of the game, and one of two free throws by the freshman guard, the Big Ten's leading scorer. Northwestern, losing its 14th straight Big Ten game over two seasons, never came closer than 10 points the rest of the game.
Craig Moore led the Wildcats with 17 points.
No. 13 Wisconsin 63, Minnesota 47
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Trevon Hughes had 20 points and six steals to lead Wisconsin to its 12th win in 13 games.
Marcus Landry and Brian Butch each added 11 points for the Badgers (18-3, 8-1 Big Ten), who led 39-23 at halftime and survived an ugly second half in which the Gophers (13-7, 3-5) came no closer than 14 points.
Lawrence Westbrook led Minnesota with 11 points.
Wisconsin came into the weekend allowing an average of 54.5 points, the second-fewest in Division I. The Badgers held No. 11 Indiana to a season-low 49 points on Thursday, and this was the worst offensive production of the season for Minnesota.
