The Minnesota Gophers picked up another non-conference win Friday night, beating Seattle 92-57 at Williams Arena. It was the sixth straight win for Minnesota and 41st consecutive non-conference home victory.

The Gophers took a quick early lead by using defensive pressure to force turnovers and set up easy buckets.

The turnovers played a key role in Minnesota's 16-0 first half run to push their lead to 21 at 38-17 and put some distance between themselves and the Red Hawks.

It was during that run, that this spectacular reverse dunk by Charles Buggs brought "The Barn" to its feet.

Minnesota had 12 steals in the first half, more than their average per game (11.7), which ranks third in the nation. The Gophers finished the game with 16 steals.

Carlos Morris had a big night. He led the way with a career high 19 points. Maurice Walker, Andre Hollins and Nate Mason all added 15 points.

DeAndre Mathieu had just two points, but he had six steals and nine assists.

Bakary Konate put a solid night together as well. He scored nine points and grabbed eight rebounds.

The Gophers (9-2) host Furman on Monday night.
