BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (January 30, 2016) — Thomas Bryant scored a career-high 23 points Saturday to help No. 19 Indiana hang on for a 74-68 victory over Minnesota.

The Hoosiers (18-4, 8-1) barely retained their share of the Big Ten lead after blowing a 16-point second-half lead. They’ve won 13 of their last 14.

Minnesota (6-16, 0-10) lost its 11th straight despite getting 21 points each from Nate Mason and Kevin Dorsey, who led the comeback.

The Golden Gophers took a 67-66 lead with 3:54 to go, but Indiana finished the game on an 8-1 run to seal the win.

The Hoosiers led 39-27 at halftime. When they extended the lead to 48-32 early in the second half, it appeared they would coast.

Instead, the Gophers rallied. They answered with six straight points, went on an 11-4 run and took the lead on Dupree McBayer scored on a dunk.
