MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Trevor Mbakwe helped Minnesota pull away from Bucknell with 13 of his 17 points in the second half and the Gophers beat the Bison 70-58 Friday in their season opener.

Bison star Mike Muscala had 12 points and 11 rebounds in his home state, and Bryson Johnson made four 3-pointers in the first half to finish with 16 points. Cameron Ayers added 13 points.
