Minnesota Gophers 85, South Dakota State 73
Well, it wasn't perfect. And if you've been paying attention, most of the Minnesota Gophers nonconference victories have been far from perfect. However, a win is a win and the Minnesota Gophers have finished the nonconference schedule with a 11-1 record. The Minnesota Gophers survived a tough South Dakota State team with an 85-73 victory. Devoe Joseph and Colton Iverson scored 15 points each. Al Nolen returned to the team after missing the last 5 games. The game was tied 63-63 but the Gophers went on a 23-10 run to close out the game.
