MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) Rodney Williams snapped out of a funk to score 23 points and No. 23 Minnesota got a much-needed confidence boost with an 84-65 victory over Nebraska on Tuesday night.
Andre Hollins scored 14 points and Austin Hollins had 13 points and five assists for the Golden Gophers (16-5, 4-4 Big Ten), who snapped a four-game losing skid that caused them to plummet in the rankings.
Ray Gallegos scored 30 points for Nebraska (11-11, 2-7), which committed 13 turnovers to offset some impressive shooting. The Huskers shot 54.5 percent for the game, but were outrebounded 36-19 and forced just six turnovers by Minnesota.
Gallegos, who made 12 of 17 shots including six 3-pointers, didn't get much help. Brandon Ubel scored 13 points and Shavon Shields had 10.
