The definition of an "Ugly Win"

Indiana 65 Minnesota 60
(Full Box Score)

The Indiana Hoosier's best basketball was definitely not on display last night in their win over Minnesota at The Barn. In fact, I still haven't got a very good grasp on just how Indiana pulled out a road victory while looking so ugly and with their superstar freshman struggling so mightily.

Despite Big Ten leading scorer Eric Gordon playing the worst game in his young career and the Hoosiers committing an eye-popping 24 turnovers, IU was able to hold off the Gophers in a 65-60 victory. Gordon was sent to the bench early in the first half after committing two fouls in the first 3 minutes and ended the half with just 5 points. He finished the game with 12 points on 3 of 8 shooting and led the team with 7 turnovers.

Indiana can thank the Gophers for their poor shooting and inability to keep the Hoosiers off the glass as reasons for this win. Minnesota shot just 17.6% (3-17) from the three-point line and was a terrible 11 of 21 from the free throw line. Spencer Tollackson missed all seven of his free throw attempts. The Gophers were also outrebounded 21 to 39 in the loss.

D.J. White led the Hoosiers with a game-high 17 points and 10 rebounds, and Jordan Crawford stepped up off the bench scoring 14 of his 16 points in the first half while Gordon was hindered by foul trouble. Indiana led 40-32 at the halftime break. Dan Coleman was a bright spot for Minnesota scoring 15 points on 7 of 14 shooting and grabbing 7 rebounds. The Gophers were given just about every opportunity to knock off 10th-ranked Indiana, but in the end cold-shooting and missed free throws did them in.
