0 All five Minnesota starters also scored in double figures, led by Andre Hollins with 25 points, but the Golden Gophers (15-2, 3-1) had an 11-game winning streak snapped. Their only two losses have come against the No. 5 teams and the only two schools to hold the No. 1 spot this season — Indiana on Saturday and Duke on Nov. 22.
Indiana took control early and Minnesota, which made a furious rally in the game's final minutes, couldn't overcome the poor start.
The Hoosiers had three players in double figures, made seven 3-pointers, forced 12 turnovers and produced seven steals in the first half.
Hulls got the first run started with Indiana's first 3 of the game with 10:06 left in the first half. Oladipo followed that with a steal and layup, and when the spurt ended with 5:54 to go, Hulls and Oladipo had combined for 16 points in an 18-2 run that gave Indiana a 34-17 lead.
Christian Watford followed that with two more 3s and the Hoosiers closed the first half on a 12-2 run that ended with Hulls' fourth three to make it 52-29 at intermission.
Indiana was 7 of 11 on 3s in the half and topped 50 points in a half for the sixth time this season. That was enough to send the students into a frenzy. Many students sang the school fight song as they waited in line outside Assembly Hall more than 90 minutes before tip-off.
Minnesota finally responded in the second half. Joe Coleman opened the half with a three-point play, a spark that sent Minnesota on a 14-4 run that cut the lead to 56-43 with 16:04 to go.
But Indiana used an 8-3 to retake a 66-48 lead with 11:52 left and still led 77-62 with about 5 minutes to go.
Minnesota charged back with a 19-7 run to close to 84-81 with 19.5 seconds left, but never had a chance to tie the score.
