BLOOMINGTON -

Tre Demps scored 13 of his 15 points in the second half and Northwestern defeated Indiana 54-47 on Saturday.

Drew Crawford added 17 points and 11 rebounds as the Wildcats (9-10, 2-4 Big Ten) won their first Big Ten road game since Jan. 17, 2013, at Illinois.

Kale Abrahamson added 9 points for Northwestern, which won despite shooting 19-of-51 (37.3 percent). Helping the Wildcats' cause: Indiana's own poor shooting.

Noah Vonleh had 17 points and 12 rebounds for the Hoosiers (12-6, 2-3), who shot just 25 percent (15-of-60) while having its two-game winning streak snapped.

Kevin "Yogi" Ferrell, the Hoosiers' sophomore point guard who came into Saturday leading the Big Ten in scoring at 17.9 ppg, scored 9 points while shooting just 2-of-13 from the field.
