Central Michigan vs Minnesota

Minnesota 76, Cent. Michigan 56


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Julian Welch had 15 points and four assists to help Minnesota wear down Central Michigan during a 76-56 victory on Tuesday night.

Austin Hollins and Joe Coleman each scored 12 points for the Gophers (11-1), who have the most victories of any Big Ten team this season, though their schedule has been one of the softest in the group.

Trey Zeigler led the Chippewas (4-5) with 15 of his 19 points in the second half.

Austin McBroom went 5 for 5 from 3-point range for 16 points and Derek Jackson added 15 points for the Chippewas, whose active half-court defense kept them in the game early. They didn't let power forward Rodney Williams get the ball in the post much at all - his only points before halftime came on a fast-break dunk - while flustering the Gophers into 10 first-half turnovers.
