The Minnesota Gophers hope to get back on the winning track after dropping two straight games when…
Gophers use second-half run for 82-70 win
The Gophers came out strong after the break and led by 14 points with 6:08 remaining. The Gophers held Wofford without a field goal for over nine minutes between the first and second halves. During that span the Gophers turned a three point deficit into an 11-point lead with 12:43 left in the game. Wofford kept the game interesting, narrowing the Minnesota lead to seven with four minutes remaining. But fast-break baskets by Hargrow and Johnson and solid free throw shooting closed out the game for the Gophers. Kris Humphries had 18 second-half points and finished the day shooting 10 of 13 from the free throw line.
Moe Hargrow added 19 points and seven rebounds. Ben Johnson also contributed 19 points and was 7-9 from the field. Stan Gaines had a career-high eight rebounds and four steals.
Wilkerson led Wofford with a career-high 20 points while Greg Taylor added 13 points.
The Gophers start the Big Ten season on Wednesday at Penn State. Tip is at 7 p.m.
