Illini Fall to Top Ten Gophers

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) - Joe

Coleman scored 29 points and Andre Hollins added 22 to help No. 8 Minnesota top

No. 12 Illinois yesterday 84-67 and remain undefeated in the Big Ten.

The Gophers (15-1, 3-0 Big Ten)

held off a charge by the 12th-ranked Illini midway through the second half.

Joseph Bertrand pulled Illinois

within at 44-42 on a short jumper with 12:37 left.

But the physical matchup took its

toll on the Illini (14-3, 1-2). And as Illinois piled up fouls, Trevor Mbakwe

connected on layup with 6:15 to play for a 62-49 lead that Illinois couldn't

overcome.

Mbakwe added 19 points and 11

rebounds.

Brandon Paul led Illinois with 21 points
