    MINNEAPOLIS -- Blake Hoffarber scored a career-high 27 points, with six 3-pointers in the second half, to lead Minnesota to a 73-62 victory over Ohio State on Saturday.

    Lawrence Westbrook added 15 points for the Gophers (12-4, 3-1 Big Ten), who bounced back in a big way from a 79-60 defeat at fourth-ranked Purdue earlier in the week. Hoffarber, the conference's leading 3-point shooter at better than 50 percent, had only three points in that game.

    Evan Turner got going in the second half and gave the Buckeyes (11-5, 1-3) 19 points, eight rebounds and seven assists in his second game back after missing more than four weeks while broken bones in his back healed.

    The rest of the Buckeyes had some trouble yet again on the road. David Lighty had 15 points, but he fouled out. Dallas Lauderdale managed only two points and missed 3 of 5 free throws.
