College Basketball: Top 25 Roundup

Associated Press
The Top 25 roundup …
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. ó Indiana did it again. Three weeks after upsetting No. 1 Kentucky, the Hoosiers took down No. 2 Ohio State.
Victor Oladipo scored the go-ahead basket with 36 seconds left Saturday and Jordan Hulls finished with 17 points, giving the No. 13 Hoosiers a 74-70 victory ó the school’s first-ever sweep of the nation’s top two teams.
“They’ve been punking us the past couple years and we realized that,” Oladipo said. “This year we had to go toe-to-toe with them.”
Indiana (13-1, 1-1 Big Ten) became the ninth team since 1996-97 to beat No. 1 and No. 2 in the same season and joined Kansas in 2007-08 and Louisville in 2003-04 as the only teams over that span to achieve the feat in the same month. Against Kentucky, the Hoosiers needed a buzzer-beating 3-pointer from Christian Watford to win it.
On Saturday, the Hoosiers needed Oladipo’s layup, three free throws from Hulls and Watford, a rebound from Watford and a steal from Oladipo in the final 36 seconds to seal it.
NO. 3 KENTUCKY 69, NO. 4 LOUISVILLE 62
LEXINGTON, Ky. ó Freshman Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had season-highs with 24 points and 19 rebounds to lead No. 3 Kentucky (13-1) to a victory over No. 4 Louisville (12-2) to extend the nation’s longest home win streak.
NO. 9 CONNECTICUT 83, ST. JOHN’S 69
HARTFORD, Conn. ó Shabazz Napier had 17 points and nine assists for Connecticut (12-1, 2-0 Big East) in a game coached by assistants for both teams.
