Continued: Reusse: More intense Gophers wouldn't let Ohio State rally

Nobody in the announced sellout crowd of 14,625 was complaining, though — not with Elliott Eliason returning. Elliott was a wild man all night; wild on the boards, wild in owning the lane, wild a couple of times in responding to the wacky officiating from the crew of Curly, Larry and Moe.

Eliason finished with 12 points, 13 rebounds and a couple of blocks. He would have been the star of the game, if not for the manner in which Mathieu outplayed Craft.

“We struggled early; I think we had to get adjusted to their pressure,” Mathieu said. “It was more us worrying about them coming at us, more unforced turnovers. When we settled down, we played our game.

“We’ve been in awesome battles this year in Big Ten play. We let Michigan go, we let Michigan State go. Finally, we finished.

“It feels really good, man. Really good.”

Patrick Reusse can be heard 3-6 p.m. weekdays on AM-1500. preusse@startribune.com
