Iowa fends off Purdue; Penn State shocks No. 4 Michigan

Aaron White had 18 points and nine rebounds, and Iowa beat Purdue 58-48 in Iowa City on Wednesday for its fourth win in five games.

Devyn Marble also had 18 for the Hawkeyes (18-10, 7-8 Big Ten), who put an ugly loss at Nebraska behind them ahead of this weekend’s trip to top-ranked Indiana.

Iowa never trailed in avenging an overtime defeat at Purdue late last month. The Boilermakers (13-15, 6-9) got as close as 49-43, but poor shooting sent them to their sixth loss in eight games.

Penn State (9-18, 1-14) had lost 18 straight regular-season Big Ten games dating to last season. The team’s previous conference win came on Feb. 16, 2012, a 69-64 victory over Iowa.

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 19 points for the Wolverines (23-5, 10-5).

Eastern Michigan 53, Northern Illinois 41: Glenn Bryant and Derek Thompson scored 14 points apiece in DeKalb, and Eastern Michigan’s defense stifled Northern Illinois. 

Mike Davis led Northern Illinois (5-21, 3-10 MAC) with nine points.

Southern Illinois 63, Northern Iowa 57:
Desmar Jackson scored 18 points and grabbed seven rebounds, as the Salukis (13-16, 5-12
Missouri Valley) won in Carbondale.

Marc Sonnen scored 18 points for the Panthers (17-13, 10-7).

Missouri State 50: Tyler Brown scored 25 points, and Jackie Carmichael added 16 points and 11 rebounds to lead Illinois State in Normal.
