Minnesota got to every loose ball, every offensive rebound and was simply tougher than Indiana on Tuesday night.
The numbers will back that up. The Golden Gophers manhandled the top-ranked Hoosiers in a 77-73 victory at Williams Arena that ended with the fans storming the court. Minnesota had 23 offensive rebounds. It scored 40 points in the paint. The Gophers had 21 second-chance points. The list of domination goes on and on. [Continue Reading]
I didn’t see the game, but after reading several articles on it it’s pretty obvious that Minnesota outworked the Hoosiers. I haven’t really come to any great conclusions on the Big Ten this year, but I will say that in the past I’ve always overlooked them, and rightfully so. My gut tells me that I shouldn’t do that this year. Big win for the Gophers.

Tweet The Indiana Hoosiers are the No. 1 men’s hoops team in college basketball. They’re led by sophomore big man Cody Zeller, who was last season’s Big Ten Freshman of the Year and a Freshman All-American after averaging 15.6 points and 6.6 rebounds in 36 games.

MINNEAPOLIS Indiana boasts two NBA lottery picks on its roster in Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipo, either of whom could wind up as the Big Ten Player of the Year. But on Tuesday night at Williams Arena, University of Minnesota senior Trevor Mbakwe was the best player on the court.

Thoughts on a 77-73 loss to the Golden Gophers:
Minnesota, fresh off a a visit from a sports psychologist and a players-only meeting over the weekend, had their minds right for No. 1 tonight in The Barn. This would not be the Golden Gophers team that found itself embarrassed after two back-to-back 20-point losses, another Tubby Smith team losing its way again in the dead of the...
Some nights, you’re just off.
On Tuesday night, the nation’s most prolific offense just couldn’t find the rhythm and consistency that we’re all used to seeing. I kept waiting for the Hoosiers to get hot, but it just never happened.

With a chance to clinch an outright Big Ten championship at home within its reach, Indiana went to Minnesota on Tuesday night as a five-point favorite and exited with a 77-73 loss.
Here’s a look at five takeaways from Indiana’s third Big Ten loss:
· Rebounding, rebounding and more rebounding: It was the first thing Tom Crean discussed in his postgame comments and for good reason...
A two game lead for the regular season title with four games to go? No sweat, especially when your the No. 1 ranked team in the country and your name is Indiana, right?
In most seasons and in most conferences you bet that would be the case. However, if this Big Ten season has taught us anything over the last few weeks it's that the theme has to be "It ain'...
I hate the damn Barn.
Despite Indiana being ranked #1 in the country and coming off breaking a decades-long losing streak in East Lansing, I had a feeling we were going to lose tonight. And it really had nothing to do with Minnesota, though we knew from the first game in Bloomington that they were capable of playing with Indiana.
Nope, it’s that damn Barn … where weird things...
