(Newser) – The 25th-ranked Baylor Bears managed to upset the No. 18 Aggies last night—eventually. The longest game in either team's history went for 3½ hours and five overtime periods before Baylor took it, 116-110, reports the Dallas Morning News. "Everyone's going to have great stats after this one," joked Baylor coach Scott Drew. In other NCAA action:

  • Tyler Hansbrough netted a season-high 35 points, 27 of those in the second half, to pull his No. 5 Tar Heels to a 98-82 victory over the Miami Hurricanes.
  • Indianapolis held the entire Iowa Hawkeyes team to just 17 points in the second half to post a final score of 65-43 and improve their record to 17-1.
