Wolverines roll again

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Trey Burke scored 19 points and No. 2 Michigan never trailed after the opening minutes of a 74-60 win Sunday over Illinois that could push the Wolverines to No. 1 in the nation for the first time since the 1992-93 season.

Duke’s lopsided loss to Miami earlier in the week opened the door for a new No. 1 when the AP poll comes out Monday — and Michigan put itself in position to take the top spot.

Nick Stauskas scored 14 points for the Wolverines (19-1, 6-1 Big Ten). Glenn Robinson III and Tim Hardaway Jr. added 12 each.

Brandon Paul led Illinois (15-6, 2-5) with 15 points but had five of Illinois’ 15 costly turnovers.

Michigan forward Jordan Morgan did not return after leaving early with a sprained right ankle, but the Wolverines hardly missed him.

No. 7 Indiana 75 NO. 13 Mich. St. 70

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Victor Oladipo took control for No. 7 Indiana in the opening minutes and never let go.

The junior guard scored 21 points, grabbed seven rebounds and finished with six steals, leading the Hoosiers to a victory over No. 13 Michigan State.

Indiana (18-2, 6-1 Big Ten) has now won three straight and two in a row in this series. The latest win helped break up the three-team logjam that started the day with only one loss each in conference play.

Michigan State (17-4, 6-2) was led by Gary Harris, Indiana’s 2012 Mr. Basketball, who had 21 points and made five 3-pointers. Adreian Payne added 18 points and nine rebounds and doubled his season total by making three 3s.

No. 17 Creighton 81

S. Illinois 51

CARBONDALE, Ill. — Doug McDermott had 21 points and 10 rebounds and No. 17 Creighton shot 63 percent, bouncing back from a pair of road losses with an easy victory at struggling Southern Illinois.

Gregory Echenique added 12 points and 11 rebounds and the Bluejays (18-3, 7-2 MVC) were 12 for 20 from 3-point range with Ethan Wragge hitting his first four attempts and Jahenns Manigat going 4 for 4.
