Hawks beat Minnesota 77-75 on last second jumper

Posted: Updated:

Jarrod Uthoff's pull-up jumper with 3.5 seconds left Tuesday lifted Iowa to a 77-75 victory over Minnesota.

The Gophers' DeAndre Mathieu's full-court drive for a layup at the buzzer was ruled a split-second late.

Uthoff scored 16 of his career-high 22 points in the second half for the Hawkeyes. Iowa blew a 17-point lead when Minnesota rallied to take a four point lead on Joey King's 3-pointer with 3:11 remaining.

Carlos Morris scored 20 points for the Gophers who have lost four of their five conference games by five points or fewer.

 Iowa returns home to host Ohio State on Saturday at Carver Hawkeye Arena.
