Indiana forward Trayce Jackson-Davis (4) scores with a slam dunk during the first half of Thursday's game against Iowa in Bloomington, Ind. 

Devonte Green scored 18 of his 27 points in the first half and Trayce Jackson-Davis added 17 on Thursday, helping the Indiana Hoosiers close out an 89-77 victory over No. 21 Iowa at Bloomington, Ind.

The Hoosiers (16-8, 6-7 Big Ten) snapped a four-game losing streak overall and a two-game skid in the series.

Luka Garza scored 38 points, falling two short of tying the Assembly Hall single-game scoring record by an opponent. Joe Wieskamp added 16 for Iowa (17-8, 8-6), which have lost three of five following a five-game winning streak.

Indiana wasted no time asserting itself after starting the day averaging a league-low 5.3 3-pointers.

Green, who finished with a season-high seven 3s, made sure of it.

The senior guard entered early in the first half and needed only four minutes to make four 3s. He added three free throws after drawing a foul on his next 3. The last two in the flurry started a 12-0 run that gave Indiana a 31-16 lead and forced Iowa to futilely play catch-up the rest of the night.

Al Durham's 3 to close out the first half made it 49-34, and the Hoosiers scored the first five points of the second half to take a 19-point lead.

Iowa never got closer than 10 in the second half as the Indiana finished with a season-high 11 3s.

No. 17 Oregon 68, No. 16 Colorado 60: Will Richardson scored 21 points, including 17 in the second half, and No. 17 Oregon came from behind at Eugene, Ore.

The Ducks (19-6, 8-4 Pac-12) trailed by 12 points early in the second half but went on a 10-0 run in the waning minutes to overtake the Buffaloes (19-6, 8-4). The two teams are tied for the league lead.

Richardson also had nine rebounds. Payton Pritchard added 15 points for the Ducks.

Evan Battey and D'Shawn Schwartz each had 14 points for Colorado.

The Buffaloes went on a 20-0 run to build a 30-16 lead while the Ducks missed 11 consecutive field goal attempts and were called for a pair of charges.

Colorado led 35-26 at halftime, shooting 48% from the field (14 for 29) after a cold start while the Ducks shot 32% in the opening half (10 for 31).

Oregon's deficit grew to 12 points before the Ducks rallied within 43-40 with 13 minutes left but Colorado answered with 3-pointers from Schwartz and Lucas Siewert to push the lead back to nine points.

The Ducks drew within two points at 51-49 and 55-53 and had possession but couldn't convert and finally Richardson's two free throws with 4:18 left knotted the game at 58-58.
