MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) Micaella Riche scored 24 points to help Minnesota beat seventh-ranked Penn State 89-81 on Thursday night, preventing the Lady Lions from clinching the Big Ten regular-season title outright and ending their six-game winning streak.

Maggie Lucas had 23 points for Penn State (23-4, 13-2), which must play at second-place and 20th-ranked Nebraska on Sunday. If the Lions lose, they'll be co-champions with the Huskers, who barely beat 11th-place Wisconsin 55-53 earlier Thursday night to keep the race going.

Rachel Banham scored 23 points and Sari Noga went 6 for 6 from 3-point range to finish with 19 points for the Golden Gophers (17-12, 6-9), who shot 28 for 42 from the floor (66.7 percent). They made 26 of 31 free throws.
