(Newser) – Senior Michael Flowers had a collegiate-high 23 points, leading the Badgers to a 80-55 rout of Penn State, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. "I don't know if he missed at all tonight," said teammate Greg Stiemsma after the game. Wisconsin posted an intimidating 59.6% shooting, including 10 for 18 from three-point range. Elsewhere in college ball:

  • In a night to send Jim Carrey fans/conspiracy theorists wild, Terrel Harris' 23 points for OSU were not enough, as Henry Dugat posted 23 of his own, leading Baylor to a 79-71 victory.
  • Boston College conquered Miami for the 13th straight time, beating the Hurricanes 76-66. The win is the Eagles' first against a ranked opponent in more than a year
