PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — Tim Miles didn't divulge his game plan for defending Montez Mathis. Asked what the game plan was, and how Mathis handled it, the Nebraska coach didn't feel the need to share his faulty formula.
"He did just fine," Miles said. "So apparently my game plan didn't matter."
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota's defense sparked its fast-break offense in time for the Gophers to pull away from Rutgers on Saturday.
Amir Coffey scored 29 points to lead a balanced scoring attack as Minnesota defeated Rutgers 88-70.
Jordan Murphy scored 15 points and grabbed 14 rebounds, Dupree McBrayer scored 15 points and added 10 assists, and freshman Gabe Kalscheur scored 11 points for Minnesota (13-3, 3-2 Big Ten), who put the game away with a 14-1 run midway through the second half.
PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — As the year is coming to a close and conference play restarting, Myles Johnson is beginning to round into form. The freshman had a career-high in points and rebounds with 10 each for his first career double-double to lead Rutgers past Maine 70-55 on Saturday.
"Playing in the games, it was definitely a learning experience because I redshirted last year," Johnson said. "So it's definitely been a stepping stone, and I think now I'm just trying to get it."
