Indiana has become the Senior Day Spoilers, after their second straight road victory, as the conference regular season comes to an end. I’d like to say that the Hoosiers played well but after eight first half and six more in the last half, I have to believe that the win was really more the result of the Minnesota Golden Gophers going 5-26 from behind the arc, even after rallying from that distance late in the game.  Before the game it was announced that Coach Wooden will return for another year. 

IU crossed the magic mark with a 61-48 lead at 4:36 remaining. Mackenzie Mgbako picked up his fourth foul just after hitting 3 straight 3’s and finished with 15, while Anthony Walker left the game with a knee injury. Kel’el Ware added 26 points — two off his career high — and 11 rebounds for the Hoosiers who moved to 17-13 overall and 9-10 in the Big Ten Conference. Trey Galloway also posted a double-double in the impressive 70-58 victory, their eighth straight over the not so Golden Gophers. Indiana closes out the regular season at home against Michigan State on Sunday with hopes that their Senior Day won’t be spoiled.
