Indiana stuns No. 1 Kentucky 73-72 at buzzer

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -- Christian Watford hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer to give Indiana a 73-72 victory over top-ranked Kentucky on Saturday night.

Watford finished with 20 points, giving the Hoosiers their first upset of a top-ranked team since taking down Duke in the 2002 NCAA tournament and setting off a wild scene. Fans stormed the court as officials looked at the replay before counting the basket.

The Hoosiers (9-0) are off to their best start since 1989-90.

Doron Lamb scored 19 points to lead the Wildcats (8-1) and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist added 18 as Kentucky's three-game winning streak over Indiana ended.

The teams traded leads five times in the final 2 minutes, but Kentucky missed the front end of a one-and-one with 28.8 seconds left and the first of two free throws with 5.6 seconds to go.
