The Hoosiers , playing without leading scorer Bracey Wright, improved to 11-10, 6-4 in the Big Ten, while Minnesota fell to 16-8 overall and 6-5 in the Big Ten.
When these two teams met earlier in the season at Minnesota, it was a match-up essentially, of the two Big Ten teams fighting for the 5th bid in the NCAA's. Since then, Iowa has lost leading scorer Pierre Pierce, not to mention three out of four games, and has essentially lost any chance of making the NCAA Tournament aside from a Big Ten Tournament championship. While White scored only nine points and six rebounds, he still made his presence felt on the block. While it was only a two point game at half, the Hoosiers opened up the second with an eleven point run to take a lead that they would not forfeit. Freshman A.J. Ratliff broke out with 15 points, while fellow frosh Robert Vaden topped his season average by four with 14 points in the game. Sophomore Patrick Ewing Jr. threw down 15 and really stepped up with three assists early on as the Hoosiers never let the Gophers back after halftime. The Hoosiers held on to their NCAA Tournament hopes with a much needed win, but they still haven't proven anything on the road. The Hoosiers
