Minnesota takes down No. 9 Wisconsin, 81-68Submitted: 01/22/2014
Story By Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS - DeAndre Mathieu and Mo Walker each scored 18 points, an outside-inside combination that pushed Minnesota to an 81-68 victory Wednesday night over No. 9 Wisconsin, the Badgers' third straight loss.

Malik Smith added 14 points, including the exclamatory, shot-clock beating 3-pointer with 39 seconds left. Austin Hollins had 11 points and four steals for the Golden Gophers (15-5, 4-3 Big Ten). Walker grabbed nine rebounds, and Mathieu went 8 for 13 from the floor.

Sam Dekker led the Badgers (16-3, 3-3) with 20 points and six rebounds. Nigel Hayes added 12 points, and Frank Kaminsky and Josh Gasser had nine points apiece.


The fastest player on the court, Mathieu can make up for his 5-foot-9 frame with a deftly effective, floating, mid-range jump shot. He flipped in two of them on back-to-back possessions, the second one with one hand, sandwiched around a steal by the Gophers to push their lead to 61-49.
