James Moses' tip-in at the buzzer in overtime lifted Iowa to an 80-79 victory over No. 4 Indiana Thursday night in Bloomington Ind., but the Hoosiers actually lost the game at the free-throw line.

Iowa, which rallied from a 16-point deficit in the second half, made 29 of 33 free throws. Indiana made only 19 of 34 and missed six in a row.

Trailing by one point with eight seconds to play in overtime, Iowa's Acie Earl missed one shot and Chris Street missed another on the rebound before Moses' winning tip.

"I didn't see the clock until I tipped the ball and it went in," said Moses, of Mission Hills Alemany and Gardena Serra high schools. "Then I was like, 'Hey, it's good. They can't take this from us.' "

Indiana is 22-4 and 10-3 in the Big Ten Conference. The Hawkeyes are 18-8 and 7-7.
