EVANSTON, Ill. — Cody Zeller scored 21 points and grabbed 13 rebounds, and No. 2 Indiana beat Northwestern, 67-59, on Sunday.

Jordan Hulls added 15 points. Christian Watford scored 14, and the Hoosiers (16-2, 4-1 Big Ten) hung on after things got tense down the stretch.

They led by as many as 17 in the first half and were up, 31-17, at intermission, but Northwestern (11-8, 2-4) rattled them with its trap in the second. The Wildcats pulled within five three times, but the Hoosiers prevailed after seeing a six-game win streak end with a loss to Wisconsin last week.

Zeller, the Big Ten Preseason Player of the Year, hit 9 of 10 free throws and dominated inside as Indiana pounded the Wildcats, 36-24, on the glass.

No. 14 North Carolina State 66, Clemson 62 — In Raleigh, N.C., freshman T.J. Warren scored 21 points, and Richard Howell scored the go-ahead basket with 1:56 left to help 14th-ranked North Carolina State (15-3, 4-1 ACC) hold off Clemson (10-7, 2-3). Howell finished with 11 points and 12 rebounds for the Wolfpack.

Duquesne scored the first nine points of the game en route to a 34-14 halftime lead. Temple got no closer than 15 points in the second half.
