Posted: Updated:
   INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Troy Williams matched his career high with 22 points and Kevin "Yogi" Ferrell added 20 to help Indiana beat No. 23 Butler 82-73 on Saturday.

   Coach Tom Crean earned his 300th victory. Indiana (9-2) beat a ranked opponent for the 17th time since 2011-12, the most in the Big Ten.

   Kellen Dunham led Butler (8-3) with 23 points. The Bulldogs lost their second straight to a power conference foe.

   It looked as if things may turn out different when Kameron Woods' dunk gave Butler a 53-47 lead with 13:48 to play. But Ferrell scored 12 of his points during a 14-6 run that gave Indiana a 61-59 lead. Williams then scored four points in a 10-0 run that extended the Hoosiers' lead to 76-65 with 3:08 to go.

   Butler couldn't get closer than five the rest of the way.
