Minnesota Gophers 71, Cornell Big Red 66
On Saturday, the Minnesota Gophers defeated the Cornell Big Red 71-66 at Williams Arena. Trevor Mbakwe had 12 points and 16 rebounds and Blake Hoffarber had 13 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 assists. The Cornell Big Red hit 14 3-pointers and Errick Peck scored 16 points for the squad. It was the 5th straight loss for Cornell, a team that made the Sweet Sixteen last season. It was a close game throughout, but the main thing was that the Gophers won. After losing to Virginia, a rebound win against Cornell was a must. Next game is against the St. Joseph's Hawks (at St. Joseph's).
