CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) Trey Burke scored 19 points and No. 2 Michigan never trailed after the opening minutes of a 74-60 win Sunday over Illinois that could push the Wolverines to No. 1 in the nation for the first time since the 1992-93 season.
Duke's lopsided loss to Miami earlier in the week opened the door for a new No. 1 when the AP poll comes out Monday - and Michigan put itself in position to take the top spot.
Nick Stauskas scored 14 points for the Wolverines (19-1, 6-1 Big Ten). Glenn Robinson III and Tim Hardaway Jr. added 12 each.
Brandon Paul led Illinois (15-6, 2-5) with 15 points but had five of Illinois' 15 costly turnovers.
Michigan forward Jordan Morgan did not return after leaving early with a sprained right ankle, but the Wolverines hardly missed him.
NO. 7 INDIANA 75, NO. 13 MICHIGAN ST. 70
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Victor Oladipo took control for No. 7 Indiana in the opening minutes and never let go.
The junior guard scored 21 points, grabbed seven rebounds and finished with six steals, leading the Hoosiers to a victory over No. 13 Michigan State.
Indiana (18-2, 6-1 Big Ten) has now won three straight and two in a row in this series. The latest win helped break up the three-team logjam that started the day with only one loss each in conference play.
Michigan State (17-4, 6-2) was led by Gary Harris, Indiana's 2012 Mr. Basketball, who had 21 points and made five 3-pointers. Adreian Payne added 18 points and nine rebounds and doubled his season total by making three 3s.
NO. 25 MIAMI 71, FLORIDA ST 47
CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Trey McKinney Jones scored 15 points for the Miami Hurricanes, and the Atlantic Coast Conference leaders won their seventh game in a row by beating Florida State.
The blowout victory before a capacity crowd was the second in a row for the 25th-ranked Hurricanes, ensuring a significant jump in Monday's poll. They drubbed No. 1 Duke on Wednesday.
Miami (15-3, 6-0) is off to its best start in the conference, alone atop the standings, and is 9-0 at home. Florida State (11-8, 3-3) fell to 0-3 this season against ranked teams.
The Seminoles endured repeated long scoring droughts against Miami's man-to-man defense and shot a season-low 31 percent.
Miami has not allowed an opponent to shoot better than 50 percent from the field this season. Michael Snaer went 2 for 5 and was held to four points, 10.5 below his average
