BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell scored 14 points and Troy Williams added 13 and Indiana rallied to upset No. 4 Iowa 85-78 on Thursday night after blowing a big lead.

Indiana (20-5, 10-2 Big Ten) pulled into a three-way for the conference lead and gave coach Tom Crean his fourth 20-win season at the school.

Jarrod Uthoff led the Hawkeyes (19-5, 10-2) with 24 points, and Mike Gesell had 17. Iowa lost for the first time in four games.

It could have been much easier.

Indiana was cruising in the first half, building a 16-point lead before giving it away.

The Hawkeyes closed to 45-38 at the half and scored the first nine points of the second half to take their first lead since the opening minutes.

Trailing 60-56 with 9:35 left, Indiana regained the lead with 14-2 run and never trailed again.


BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - Jabari Bird scored 16 of his season-high 24 points in the first half and punctuated his big night with a reverse dunk in the final seconds, leading California past Oregon.

The Golden Bears (16-8, 6-5 Pac-12) never trailed and led by as much as 25 while remaining unbeaten at Haas Pavilion this season.

Jaylen Brown added 16 points, Ivan Rabb had 13 points and seven rebounds, while Tyrone Wallace finished with 10 points in his return to the lineup after missing nearly a month due to injury.

Dillon Brooks scored 17 points for Oregon (20-5, 9-3).
