Oturu scores 26 as Minnesota beats Penn State 75-69

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Coach Richard Pitino implored his Minnesota team at halftime to increase its pressure on the defensive end after Penn State shot 60% from the field and didn’t have a turnover in the first half.

The Gophers didn’t start the second half the way Pitino envisioned but eventually started to hound the Nittany Lions’ shooters, and Minnesota came away with another conference victory.
