No. 7 Minnesota holds off No. 10 Penn State, 63-56

(AP) Austin Hollins scored 18 points, Deandre Mathieu added 13 and Andre Hollins hit a late 3-pointer Thursday to give Minnesota a badly needed 63-56 win over Penn State in the Big Ten tournament.

The seventh-seeded Golden Gophers (20-12), who jumped out to a 9-0 lead and never trailed, advanced to Friday night’s quarterfinal against No. 12 Wisconsin with their third win in four games. No. 10 seed Penn State (15-17) had a miserable night shooting, making only 32.2 percent from the field.

Are you people out of your minds? Why can’t we get continous LIVE coverage of the Penn St. Minn. game?

I wish the “commentators” would commentate, not just talking about everything but the game. It is distracting trying to follow their conversation when there is a game on the screen.
