Gophers Stun Purdue on Senior Night at the Barn

Minnesota fan gives Purdue's Matt Haarms double middle finger

Minnesota fan gives Purdue's Matt Haarms double middle finger

He missed all of last season due to a knee injury. It might help to get a repeat performance from Amir Coffey, who had 31 points and 12 rebounds vs. the Wildcats and was named Big Ten player of the week Monday.

Carsen Edwards' 3-point shot brought Purdue within 71-69 with 5.2 seconds to go. Minnesota's inbounds pass from underneath its basket went out of bounds along the sideline as Coffey and Purdue's Grady Eifert went for the ball.

Despite that, consecutive three-pointers from Purdue's Ryan Cline would inch them to within three.

The Gophers included in pregame warmups senior Jarvis Johnson, an acclaimed hometown recruit who was prevented from playing at all in college by a heart condition. McBrayer received an especially big ovation as he hugged his aunt, standing in for his late mother, Tayra McFarlane, who died December 3 of cancer.

The Boilermakers have one of the most efficient offenses in the country by any statistical measure, but the Gophers gave them plenty of trouble in the first half, particularly in the paint. His 1,248 career rebounds are second in Big Ten history.

Stockman played a big part.

Cook Islands mulls new name
A small Pacific Island nation is considering ditching its Colonial name in favor of one that highlights their Polynesian roots. Now, as they develop an increasingly independent national identity, they want to change their name to one that reflects that.

Minnesota announced before the game that sophomore center Eric Curry, who is averaging 4.1 points, 3.1 rebounds and 18.7 minutes in 15 games, is out for the season because of a foot injury.

"I figured if I just stayed physical with Haarms throughout the game, it would take him out of his game", Stockman said.

In addition to snapping a 13-game winning streak against unranked opponents, this result also delayed Purdue's opportunity to clinch at least a share of the Big Ten regular season championship.

Minnesota (19-11, 9-10 Big Ten) firmed up its NCAA Tournament at-large resume while Purdue (22-8, 15-4) fell into a three-way tie with Michigan and Michigan State for the league lead. They went 27 for 36 at the free throw line.

Maryland will open tournament play on Friday with a quarterfinal contest at noon (ET) against the victor of the second-round game between No. 8 seed Northwestern and No. 9 seed Michigan State.

Coming off its home loss to Michigan State, and without redshirt junior wing Charles Matthews, Michigan remained in the hunt for a Big Ten regular season championship by nuking Nebraska, 82-53, on February 28 and gifting Maryland its first home conference loss on March 3.
