Texas overcame a ten point first half deficit to run away from Minnesota and win 76-62. While a fairly solid performance top to bottom by Texas, the star of the night was without question A.J. Abrams, who scored 26 points, including eight from behind the arc.
Big Dexter Pittman continued his surge with 17 points and 11 rebounds. Damion James recorded 18 points and nine rebounds.
Next up is #2 seed Duke, who destroyed the Cinderella hopes of the Binghamton Bearcats by 86-62 on Thursday.
Great game, Horns! Let’s put another one together Saturday!
