Big Ten scoreboard for Nov. 23
Creighton 84, Wisconsin 74: Despite a career-night from F Jared Berggren (27 points), the Badgers (3-2) couldn't contain Creighton's Doug McDermott, who scored 30 points working off face-up jumpers and in the post. Wisconsin made just eight of 27 3-point attempts, and the Bluejays were 40 percent (8 of 20) from the perimeter. The loss cost Wisconsin a trip to the finals of the Las Vegas Invitational and will instead play Arkansas on Saturday at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN3.
Michigan State 70, Oakland 52: Oakland trailed by just four points with about five minutes remaining, but the Spartans (4-1), sparked by a Keith Appling 3-pointer, finished on a 15-1 run to avoid the upset. The Grizzlies forced 20 Michigan State turnovers and had Oakland been able to convert more than 14 percent of its 3-pointers (3 of 21), the Spartans may well have lost. Appling finished with 20 points, and Michigan State's frontcourt duo of Derrick Nix and Adreian Payne combined for 25 points and 16 rebounds.
Northwestern 55, TCU 31: The Wildcats held the Horned Frogs to 13 field goals as Northwestern improved to 5-0. Louisville transfer Jared Swopshire had a game-high 15 points and G Drew Crawford had 12 points and six rebounds for the Wildcats. Aside from the 12 points TCU's Devonta Abron scored, no one had more than four points for the Horned Frogs.
Ohio State 91, UMKC 45: The Buckeyes (4-0) shot 60 percent (31 of 51) from the field, including 9 of 16 on 3s in Columbus. DeShaun Thomas was extremely efficient, scoring 21 points on eight shots as he predominantly worked the left side of the floor. He was equally comfortable taking his defender off the dribble along the baseline or relying on pick-and-rolls along the perimeter. Sophomore G Shannon Scott had his first career double-double with 10 points and 10 assists.
Michigan 71, Kansas State 57: Tim Hardaway Jr. had 23 points in the win, but the Wolverines' junior had to leave with about four minutes left after he was kneed in the head scrambling for a loose ball. Tests revealed that he was concussion free, but it was the last thing Michigan (5-0) needed with a game against No. 16 North Carolina State next week. The victory gave Michigan the NIT Tip-Off Tournament championship and saw numerous contributions from a number of players besides Hardaway Jr. Glenn Robinson III had 12 rebounds, and PG Trey Burke had four assists and six rebounds.
Minnesota 84, Memphis 75: G Andre Hollins scored a career-high 41 points as the Gophers (5-1) took down No. 19 Memphis in the Battle 4 Atlantis consolation semifinals. Hollins scored 24 points in the first half -- one shy of his previous career best. Rodney Williams Jr. was the only other player to score more than seven points (13). The win sets up Saturday's fifth-place game against Stanford.
Penn State 60, Bucknell 57: The Nittany Lions (3-2) won their first full game without G Tim Frazier, who is done for the year after rupturing his ACL in their last game vs. Akron. Penn State nearly tripled its abysmal 16-point first half with 44 second-half points. F Jermaine Marshall scored 17, and freshman Brandon Taylor had a season-high 16. A late free throw miss gave Bucknell the ball with seven seconds left but Cameron Ayers missed a 3 from the corner as time expired.
Star of the night: Forty-one points in a victory over a ranked opponent will earn you the honor nearly every time. Hollins, playing with a heavy heart after his grandmother died last weekend, was 12 for 16, including all five of his 3-point attempts. He entered the game averaging 11.5 points in Minnesota's four games.
Inside the box score -- 3 numbers worth a second look
45 -- Penn State's free throw percentage in Friday night's near-loss to Bucknell. The Nittany Lions were 9 of 20 but entered the game hitting 75 percent of their free throws.
1997 -- The last time Michigan won a major preseason tournament. That year the Wolverines defeated Syracuse to win the Puerto Rico Holiday Classic.
40 -- The number of years since a Minnesota player had scored more than 40 points, according to ESPN. Oliver Shannon scored 42 against Wisconsin in 1971, the school record.
Friday's quote of the day: "I knew the whole starting five, we have history together. I won a state championship with two of the guys, lost a state championship to Adonis Thomas, lost another one to Tarik Black," Hollins, a Memphis native, told ESPN's Jason King. Memphis coach Josh Pastner said that he had recruited Hollins out of high school but Hollins didn't want to go because he felt the Tigers' backcourt was too crowded.
