Daniel Oturu had 19 points, 16 rebounds and five blocks in posting his ninth double-double of the season, as Minnesota beat Northwestern 77-68.

Marcus Carr added 17 points on 10-for-10 free-throw shooting for the Gophers. They made all 19 of their shots from the foul line and confidently bounced back from a potentially crushing double-overtime loss at Purdue in their previous game.
