MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Minnesota was reminded of a valuable lesson on Monday night when Drake had the Golden Gophers on the ropes. When in doubt, get the ball to Jordan Murphy.
Murphy posted his 12th straight double-double to start the season with 24 points and 18 rebounds, and Minnesota held off Drake 68-67.
"He did it with sheer will," Gophers coach Richard Pitino said. "He just got it done the old-fashioned way."
