BIG TEN: Gophers Beat #14 Wisconsin
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Blake Hoffarber had 16 points and nine rebounds to lead inspired Minnesota to a 68-52 victory over No. 14 Wisconsin Thursday night, putting a big dent in the Badgers' Big Ten title bid.

Trevon Hughes scored 19 points and Jason Bohannon added 18 for Wisconsin (19-7, 9-5), which went almost 8 minutes without scoring down the stretch and was outrebounded 41-28 for the game.

Junior forward Jon Leuer returned from a broken left wrist that kept him out of the last nine games, but he shot just 2 of 12 and finished with four points. Ralph Sampson III's defense had a hand in that for Minnesota (15-10, 6-7), adding 10 points and eight rebounds.

Hoffarber, the nation's leading 3-point shooter, wasn't just camping out behind the circle as he sometimes does. He ran off screens and flashed to the lane a few times, too.
