Brust scored 14 points for the Badgers (17-7, 8-3 Big Ten), while Jared Berggren added 13.

Iowa 71, Northwestern 57

IOWA CITY, Iowa Devyn Marble broke a lengthy slump with 21 points and Iowa beat Northwestern 71-57 on Saturday to snap a two-game losing streak.

Josh Oglesby added 10 for the Hawkeyes (15-9, 4-7 Big Ten), who won for just the second time in six games.

Reggie Hearn had 13 to lead Northwestern, which let the Hawkeyes take control with a 10-0 run midway through the second half.

The Wildcats (13-11, 4-7) lost for the third time in four games.

No. 12 Michigan St. 78, Purdue 65

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. Branden Dawson scored 20 points and Keith Appling added 17, leading No. 12 Michigan State past Purdue 78-65 on Saturday night.

The Spartans (20-4, 9-2 Big Ten) have won nine of their last 10 games and will have at least a share of the league lead regardless of what happens Sunday when No. 1 Indiana visits No. 10 Ohio State.

Purdue (12-12, 5-6) was led by Terone Johnson with 20 points and Ronnie Johnson with 15, but it wasnt enough to avoid a fourth loss in five games or a fifth straight loss in the series.
