Glynn Watson golden against Gophers to help Huskers upset No. 14 Minnesota

Glynn Watson golden against Gophers to help Huskers upset No. 14 Minnesota

Things went much differently this time around.

The No. 14 Gophers (8-2, 1-1 Big Ten) were upset in a 78-68 loss to the Nebraska Cornhuskers (7-3, 1-1 Big Ten) on Tuesday at Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Nebraska.

"I feel like this is our team", Watson said. "It's not going to be as easy for us to just throw it inside".

"Obviously, we didn't have it going", Pitino told reporters.

Murphy finished with 10 points and 12 rebounds, extending his streak of a double-double in each game this season.

Washington had just five points on 2-for-7 shooting in 17 minutes.

The Gophers didn't make a serious run until the final minutes.

Coach Tim Miles dismissed the inside woes in Sunday's 29-point loss to Michigan State, noting the quality of the opponent. "He did a great job all night".

Watson led Nebraska in rebounding with nine. Assists - Minnesota 9 (Mason 3), Nebraska 11 (Palmer 4). That resulted in the Gophers making three of four free throws and the ball to cut the deficit to 14.

Mason, who became Minnesota's 12th-best all-time scorer, led the Gophers with 20 points but was 5 of 16 from the floor.

The 6-6, 250-pound junior from San Antonio has recorded double-doubles in all nine games this season, with averages of 21.0 points and 12.9 rebounds. Rebounds - Minnesota 35 (Murphy 12), Nebraska 39 (Watson 9).

After trailing by as many as 18, the Highlanders (2-6) had closed to 44-42 when Dunn seized upon a Riverside turnover - Riverside made a season-low 11 - to glide to the hoop and spark a 10-2 run.

"Ball-screen (defense) was killing us", Coffey said.

"I knew the crowd wouldn't be as big", Pitino said, comparing it to the game against Miami. "This win really helped us because now we can get on a roll".

So that's what happens when Nebraska plays two good halves of basketball on the same night.

The Cornhuskers (7-3, 1-1), who shot 57 percent in the second half, were led by Glynn Watson Jr., who scored 20 of his season-high 29 points in the second half.

"They have two tremendous inside kids, but they aren't as deep as Michigan State". "It was just Glynn".

Center Reggie Lynch, a 6-foot-10, 265-pound senior, was voted Big Ten defensive player of the year last year after finishing No. 2 nationally in blocked shots with 3.5 per game.

ABOUT MINNESOTA (8-1, 1-0 Big Ten): Guard Nate Mason (15.2 points) went 8-of-13 from the field Saturday and scored a season-high 26 points to give him 1,351 for his career, leaving him 41 points shy of cracking the school's top 10 list in that category.

"Me and (Isaiah) Roby going into the game were like, 'We need to really focus and lock in on this guy, '" Copeland said of Murphy. I don't think we're that bad. "He's a really good player, and we were able to get him in foul trouble early and kind of throw him off a little bit".

Minnesota came into its matchup ranked 14th in the country on Tuesday night.

To start the second half, NU held Minnesota to one point on the first seven possessions.

"They're hard to play against", Miles said.

"He was terrific", Pitino said of Mason.
