MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 26 (UPI) -- Trevor Mbakwe fired in 21 points and grabbed 12 rebounds Tuesday, helping Minnesota knock off top-ranked Indiana 77-73.

Andre Hollins scored 12 of his 16 points the second half, sparking a rally in which the Golden Gophers (19-9, 7-8 Big Ten) erased an eight-point deficit and notched their first win over a No. 1 team since 1989.

Elliott Eliason came off the bench to pump in seven consecutive points during the second-half surge, also grabbing five rebounds as Minnesota won for only the second time in six contests.

Jordan Hulls went 5-of-7 from 3-point range en route to 17 points and Victor Oladipo added 16 with five rebounds for the Hoosiers (24-4, 12-3), who saw their four-game winning streak snapped.

Indiana's Cody Zeller was held to nine points on 2-of-9 shooting in the loss.
