ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Ayo Dosunmu hit a contested jumper from the free throw line with 0.5 seconds remaining to give No. 21 Illinois a 64-62 victory over Michigan. The Illini moved into sole possession of first place in the Big Ten for the moment, and they extended their winning streak to six with a hard-fought victory over the Wolverines. Michigan has lost four in a row and may again be without forward Isaiah Livers because of an injury. Dosunmu finished with 27 points. Zavier Simpson scored 17 for Michigan. Livers returned from a six-game absence but was hurt again in the second half.

PISCATAWAY, NJ (AP) — Geo Baker hit a 3-pointer with 1.2 seconds left to lift No. 24 Rutgers to a 75-72 victory over Nebraska. Rutgers improved to 14-0 at home. The Scarlet Knights had four double-digit scorers Saturday. Akwaski Yeboah led the way with 20 points while Caleb McConnell and Jacob Young each had 12 points and Montez Mathis had 10. Nebraska was led by Cam Mack with 19 points while Thorir Thorbjarnarson had 17.

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — Washington State quarterback Anthony Gordon led the North to three touchdowns in the third quarter of a 31-17 victory over the South in the Senior Bowl on Saturday. The Cougars' prolific passer entered the all-star game for senior NFL prospects after halftime and twice took the North downfield. He was sporting the No. 3 jersey in honor of late Washington State quarterback Tyler Hilinski. The game's most highly touted passer, Oregon's Justin Herbert, also shined with 83 yards and a touchdown in the first quarter.
