MINNESOTA 73, PENN ST 44

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Trevor Mbakwe had 13 points and 13 rebounds
and Minnesota held Penn State scoreless for the first 11 minutes
of the game to cruise to a 73-44 victory on Saturday.
Julian Welch had 10 points and seven assists and Rodney Williams
had 10 points and seven rebounds for the Golden Gophers (20-9,
8-8 Big Ten), who didn't let the Nittany Lions spoil their
Senior Day and capped a big week in which they also toppled No.
1 Indiana at home.
D.J. Newbill scored 15 points for Penn State (9-19, 1-15) but
made just 2 of 16 field goals, and the Lions weren't able to
sneak up on Minnesota like they did No. 4 Michigan earlier this
week. They trailed 16-0 before getting their first basket of the
game with 8:42 to go in the half.
