Date: March 06, 2010 12:00 PM EDT
  

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -Jordan Hulls scored a season-high 24 points, all on 3-pointers, and Derek Elston scored five of the first seven points in overtime to help Indiana get past Northwestern 88-80 Saturday.

The victory ended Indiana's 11-game losing streak and gave the Hoosiers (10-20, 4-14 Big Ten) their first win since Jan. 21.

Northwestern (19-12, 7-11) was led by John Shurna with 31 points and Michael Thompson with 25, not enough for a school-record 20th win.

The Hoosiers appeared headed toward a victory after taking a 69-61 lead with 3:24 left in regulation.

But two turnovers and two missed free throws allowed Northwestern to rally, and the Wildcats finally tied it 69-69 on Thompson's 3-pointer with 1:12 to go.

In overtime, Elston and Hulls combined for the first seven points to make it 76-69, and Northwestern never seriously challenged again. Elston had a season-high 17.
