Northwestern beats No. 12 Minnesota

EVANSTON, Ill. — Jared Swopshire scored 16 points to lead Northwestern to a 55-48 victory over No. 12 Minnesota on Wednesday night.

In a game where baskets were hard to come by at times, the Wildcats (12-8, 3-4 Big Ten) made just enough shots down the stretch to beat a ranked opponent for the second time in three games while sending the Gophers (15-4, 3-3) to their third straight loss.

Alex Marcotullio made a 3-pointer midway through the second half to give Northwestern a one-point lead and start the decisive 13-2 run.

Reggie Hearn scored 13 points after averaging 21 in the previous two games. Tre Demps added 10 points, and the Wildcats shook off a loss to Indiana and took out another ranked team to go with their victory over then-No. 23 Illinois last week.

They prevailed despite getting outrebounded 45-31 because they held Minnesota to its lowest point total of the season.
