Madison, Wis. -- The Gophers used an excellent interior offensive attack and limited turnovers in their 81-68 win over Wisconsin on Jan. 22.The script was flipped on Thursday night.Minnesota (16-9, 5-7) got nothing in the paint and was careless with the ball in its 78-70 defeat at the hands of the Badgers (20-5, 7-5).“When you turn the ball over 13 times and you allow them to make 30 points off free throws, you’re not going to win on the road,” Gophers head coach Richard Pitino said.
