Minnesota tops Indiana 75-74
(MINNEAPOLIS) - Watching his first 10 shots ricochet off the rim didn't deter Akeem Springs, and letting Indiana take the lead down the stretch didn't rattle Minnesota. Springs followed his own missed 3-pointer with a flip from the baseline with 3 seconds left that lifted Minnesota to a 75-74 victory over Indiana on Wednesday night to hand the Hoosiers their fourth straight loss and give the Gophers their fourth consecutive win. After driving through the defense to the top of the key, James Blackmon Jr. pulled up for a 3-point try at the buzzer that banged off the backboard. Jordan Murphy had his third straight double-double with 14 points and 15 rebounds for Minnesota (19-7, 7-6 Big Ten) who had lost five straight games in January, four of them by seven points or less. Nate Mason led the way with 30 points. Blackmon had 22 points for the Hoosiers (15-12, 5-9 Big Ten), after two quiet games following an absence caused by a lower left leg injury. Hoosiers coach Tom Crean put freshmen De'ron Davis and Devonte Green in the starting lineup to form a 6-foot-10 tandem inside. Davis fouled out in nine minutes of action, with 10 points. Bryant, who was scoreless in the first half, finished with eight points and 10 rebounds.
