Game Recap: Embarrassment at the Barn

Sam Dekker has nowhere to go (Siker/14)

Sophomore Sam Dekker scored a game-high 20 points, but No.9 Wisconsin's porous defense rarely made things challenging for Minnesota, which shot 59 percent from the field, put three players in the double figures and scored the most points it had on Wisconsin in 20 years, resulting in a 81-68 Gophers victory at Williams Arena.
