Video: Rodney Williams' best slam dunk?

Four days after showing the basketball world how high he can get up, Rodney Williams decided to show everyone how long he can hang in the air. Spoiler alert: It’s a LONG time. At the end of the first half of the Penn State-Minnesota game on Saturday, Williams defied gravity, once again, with his latest highlight-reel alley-oop. Watch the dunk here. [ RELATED: Want to embed BTN.com video? Here’s how! ] Anyone else notice how Williams almost paused in the air? He hit his apex, yet stayed there as he reached back with his left arm – the same one that’s

Minnesota trounces Penn State on Senior Day

Trevor Mbakwe had 13 points and 13 rebounds and Minnesota held Penn State scoreless for the first 11 minutes of the game to cruise to a 73-44 victory on Saturday. Julian Welch had 10 points and seven assists and Rodney Williams had 10 points and seven rebounds for the Golden Gophers (20-9, 8-8 Big Ten), who didn’t let the Nittany Lions spoil their Senior Day. [ VIDEO: Minnesota honors Mbakwe, seniors ] D.J. Newbill scored 15 points for Penn State (9-19, 1-15) but made just 2 of 16 field goals, and the Lions weren’t able to sneak up on Minnesota

Video: Minnesota honors Mbakwe, seniors

Prior to Saturday’s game vs. Penn State, Minnesota honored its four seniors: Andre Ingram, Trevor Mbakwe, Julian Welch and Rodney Williams. Fittingly, it was the seniors who led the Gophers to the easy 73-44 victory over the Nittany Lions. The seniors combined to score 37 points and grab 25 rebounds, led by Mbakwe’s 13 point, 13-rebound double-double. Watch the ceremony now. Oh, and there was this incredible senior highlight, too.

Shaheen, former NCAA executive vice president of Championships and Alliances, is credited with having a significant impact on the tournament’s success.

Better block: Rodney Williams or Eric May?

The last two nights in the Big Ten have provided college basketball fans with two exciting upsets and a pair of the more impressive blocked shots of the season. On Tuesday night, it was Rodney Williams jumping out of the gym to block a final-minute Victor Oladipo 3-pointer. And tonight, it was Eric May coming from behind to swat Terone Johnson in the final minute. Which block was better? Watch both in this post and vote below. And here’s Williams’ block from Tuesday night: Now that you’ve seen both, it’s time to vote. My answer: Rodney Williams, and it isn’t

Big Ten Geeks: Rise of the Gophers

Indiana suffered another road loss to a previously scuffling squad, this time falling at Minnesota by four points. Much has been said about Cody Zeller’s lack of offensive production on this night (nine points, four turnovers, five fouls), but the Hoosiers scored quite well with their big man scuffling. Instead, it was the defensive end where Indiana lost this game, most especially on the defensive glass. The Gophers retrieved a ridiculous 53 percent of their misses and finished nearly every rim opportunity they got. Combined with a surprisingly low turnover rate, it enabled Minnesota to hoist 11 more shots than

Ripple effects from Gophers' upset win

It was a night to remember at Williams Arena. The joint was jumping. In fact, it seemed like the roof was about to blow off the place as Minnesota pushed its way to a stunning 77-73 win over No. 1 Indiana. That’s why my daily links starts right there. Credit Trevor Mbakwe, who led the way with 21 points and 12 rebounds and also provided much-needed leadership in dominating Cody Zeller. Where has this been during Big Ten play? Indiana coach Tom Crean says the Golden Gophers were more physical than the Hoosiers. He’s correct—no, he’s VERY correct. The stats say

Video: Gopher fans storm court after upset of No. 1 Indiana

We saw the scene earlier this month in Champaign. It happened Tuesday night, too, after Minnesota knocked off No. 1 Indiana at Williams Arena. It’s safe to say, Tom Crean and the Hoosiers have seen enough of the opponent’s fans storming the court against them. Watch the Minnesota fans celebrate Tuesday’s exciting win over Indiana now.

Up, up and away: Williams soars for big-time swat

Everybody knows Minnesota’s Rodney Williams can jump. He’s one of the nation’s elite dunkers, after all. In Tuesday night’s upset over No. 1 Indiana, Williams showed off his ups on the defensive end. And the athletic senior’s block of Victor Oladipo’s late 3 was just as pretty as any of his highlight dunks. Watch Williams soar to block Oladipo’s shot in the final minute of the upset here.

Mbakwe, Minnesota upset No. 1 Indiana, 77-73

Trevor Mbakwe had 21 points and 12 rebounds to help Minnesota take down No. 1 Indiana 77-73 on Tuesday night, the seventh time the top-ranked team in The Associated Press’ poll has lost a game this season. Andre Hollins added 16 points for the Gophers (19-9, 7-8 Big Ten), who outrebounded Cody Zeller and the Hoosiers by a whopping 44-30 and solidified their slipping NCAA tournament case with an emphatic performance against the Big Ten leaders. [ VIDEO: Watch Rodney Williams’ incredible rejection ] Zeller was held to nine points with four turnovers for the Hoosiers (24-4, 12-3), who have
