BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Tom Crean watched his young Hoosiers grow up Tuesday night. Stunned fans were overjoyed with the results. The turnovers and fouls were down. The defence improved and the Hoosiers did more than just play for pride -- they protected their home court against a team that hadnt lost all season. Kevin "Yogi" Ferrell scored 25 points, including two free throws with 18.1 seconds left, and freshman Stanford Robinson added a career-best 13 before grabbing the final rebound on a missed 3-pointer to preserve Indianas 75-72 upset over No. 3 Wisconsin -- a win that sent students streaming onto the court. "The program has had a lot of big wins. To the team, it means a great deal," Crean said. "To me, the team needs this. I mean we had a long week from Michigan State to Penn State but weve gotten a lot better, and we got a lot better the last couple of days. Its amazing what happens when some real confidence starts to come." The postgame celebration exemplified how critical the win was to a team that has been mostly inconsistent. Until Saturdays win at Penn State, the Hoosiers had beaten only one power conference foe -- Washington -- way back in November. Now they have two straight wins over Big Ten foes, taking down a team that had given it nothing but fits for seven years. Wisconsin (16-1, 3-1 Big Ten) entered the night as one of the nations last four unbeaten teams and was trying to become the first team to ever win 13 straight over Indiana. The tale of the tape appeared to be stacked against the Hoosiers, too. Somehow, though, Indiana (12-5, 2-2) responded with its best performance of the season. It committed only nine turnovers, limited Wisconsin to four free throws and somehow managed to dig itself out from a 10-point second-half deficit with a remarkable 12-0 run that gave the Hoosiers the lead for good. "Weve come very far, had a lot of early losses, but I felt like we learned from watching film," said Ferrell, a sophomore who has emerged as Indianas top scorer. "Weve been working hard in practice, but were not going to be content with it." Nor should they be. While Ferrell and Robinson led the way, only two other players -- senior Will Sheehey and freshman Noah Vonleh reached double figures. Sheehey had 13 points, Vonleh 11. They lost the rebounding battle 33-28 and allowed the Badgers to shoot 53.3 per cent from the field. They also struggled to defend Wisconsin guard Traevon Jackson, who had 16 of his career-high 21 in the second half. But it was the more experienced Badgers who got out of sorts late. Jackson missed a 3 from the top of the key with 12 seconds to go. Josh Gasser grabbed the rebound and flipped the ball out to Ben Brust in the corner, who rushed his shot with 5 seconds left and came up short. "When the clocks ticking in your head like that, he felt like there were two seconds to go or three," Badgers coach Bo Ryan said. "Also he felt that he needed to get the shot up in case the first touch from 3-point range is the call. There was actually just under four seconds left when the ball came down." All five Badgers starters scored in double figures -- Brust had 13, Gasser and Frank Kaminsky both had 11 and Sam Dekker finished with 10. But over the final 13 minutes, the Badgers had trouble scoring. The shooting woes gave Indiana the opening it so desperately needed, and after Crean called a timeout everything changed. Evan Gordon started the rally with a 17-foot jumper. Sheehey and Robinson followed that with consecutive layups. Vonleh finished the 12-0 run with a jumper in the paint to give Indiana a 54-52 lead with 8:58 left, and the Hoosiers never trailed again. But Wisconsin tied the score at 61 and closed to 73-72 on Kaminskys putback with 28.5 seconds left. Ferrell then made two free throws, the Badgers missed the two 3s -- and the crowd went wild over the Hoosiers their biggest win of the season. "Were not going to sit and watch this tape and have a pizza party and get some ice cream and say Wow, we couldnt have played any better," said Crean, who beat Ryan for the first time since he was hired by Indiana. "Were not. I think weve got a lot of potential, but you coach this game expecting to win." Francis Martes Jersey . -- Ben Bishop had a milestone game against one of the NHLs greatest goalies.

When the Dallas Mavericks needed to stop a Golden State rally in the fourth quarter, they looked for defensive help from the rookie point guard playing in just his sixth game. Martin Maldonado Jersey .C. - The housecleaning continues for the B. J. R. Richard Jersey . The 12th-ranked Haas served well throughout the match at the Ibirapuera arena, allowing only one break point to the 152nd-ranked Italian. Both players held serve until the first-set tiebreak, when Haas stepped up his game to easily clinch the set.The original concussion lawsuit against the NHL included 10 former players, and that number has already grown. More than 200 players have joined, according to lawyers Steve Silverman and Mel Owens, who are at the forefront of the suit. Owens, an NFL linebacker-turned-disability lawyer said in a phone interview Wednesday that "hundreds" of ex-NHL players are going to become part of the suit, which was filed in U.S. federal court in Washington on Monday. "These are 10 players, but theres hundreds of guys that, theyre in the lawsuit," said Owens, who works for NBO Law in Beverly Hills, Calif. "They just havent been named yet. Theyre going to be there." A list of the 200-plus players was not made available when requested. More than 200 players have joined the effort, which began with 10 players: Gary Leeman, Bradley Aitken, Darren Banks, Curt Bennett, Richard Dunn, Warren Holmes, Robert Manno, Blair James Stewart, Morris Titanic and Rick Vaive. Former New York Islanders centre Bob Bourne announced he joined the suit shortly after it was filed. Leeman and Vaive in recent days have politely declined comment about their involvement, deferring to Silverman and Owens, who said he did not know how many players would wind up being a part of it. "I dont know how many liiving alumni there are in the NHL that have these significant problems," Owens said.dddddddddddd"I dont know that. But like in the NFL, it just matured over time. Once the players find out that, Oh, there may be hope for me. I might be able to get some help and some treatment to address my quality of life issues, Im sure theyll be in contact." More than 4,500 former NFL players sued that league in a case that Owens said has "parallels" to this one. That settlement was worth US$765 million. Owens said there wasnt any recruiting being done to get more players to join the cause. He sent tweets to several former players informing them of the case beginning Monday. "All of our business that weve ever done has all been by word of mouth. The players are the ones that talk amongst themselves," he said. "Once I have knowledge as a player, like you have knowledge and like everybody else has knowledge, the word spreads. Back in the 60s and the 70s and the 80s the person with all the knowledge and the power were the owners. They controlled the message." In a statement released Monday evening, NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly called the subject matter "very serious" and said the league intended to defend the case "vigorously." ' ' '
