The Gophers led by three at the half but went cold from the floor in the second half. At one point Minnesota missed 12 straight three-pointers. Andre Hollins finally hit a triple with 35 seconds left, but it was too little too late.

The Gophers turned the ball over 15 times in the game, with Andre Hollins tallying seven himself.
