Burned at 'The Barn'; Gophers fall just short of Hawkeyes


The Gophers men's basketball team dropped a heartbreaker at Williams Arena Tuesday night, falling to Iowa 77-75. The loss drops the Gophers to 0-5 in the Big Ten.

Jarrod Uthoff's fade away jumper with 3.5 seconds remaining broke a 75-all tie and gave the Hawkeyes a lead. A last second attempt by DeAndre Mathieu to tie the game on a layup came a few tenths of a second too late.

Minnesota made a mad rally in the second half, digging their way out of a double-digit halftime deficit to take a lead down the stretch. Joey King's three-pointer gave the Gophers their first lead of the night at 67-65 with just over 6 minutes to play.

The closing moments were a battle, but Iowa put together one last run in the final minute to tie it up, and eventually reclaim the lead on Uthoff's jumper.

Uthoff finished with 22 points on 7-of-10 shooting to lead the Hawkeyes.

Carlos Morris led the Gophers with 20 points, Nate Mason added 17, while King and Mathieu each chipped in with 11. It's the first 0-5 start to Big Ten play for the Gophers since the 2005-06 season.

The Gophers (11-7, 0-5) host Rutgers on Saturday.
