The Minnesota Gophers men's basketball team snapped a three game losing streak with a 96-90 overtime victory over Michigan State in East Lansing Thursday night.
The Gophers' win also snapped a four-game winning streak for Tom Izzo's Spartans.
DeAndre Mathieu sank two free throws with just over 30 seconds to play in overtime to push Minnesota's lead to 93-88. Mathieu finished with 12 points and was 7-of-10 from the free throw line.
It was a crazy game, especially in the second half. Carlos Morris hit a three-pointer with 2.2 seconds left in regulation to send the game into overtime. Morris was fouled on the shot and had a chance to give the Gophers a lead, but he couldn't make the decisive free throw.
Morris' three helped the Gophers rally back after Michigan State's Travis Trice stole the lead from Minnesota with a pair of late three-pointers.
Denzel Valentine led the Spartans with 27, while Trice added 21.
Minnesota (17-12, 6-10) hosts Wisconsin next Thursday at the Barn.
