MINNEAPOLIS -- Rodney Williams had 11 points and four steals and flustered the Big Ten's leading scorer to help Minnesota to its third straight win, 75-52 over Northwestern on Sunday.

Williams added three blocks and Joe Coleman had 16 points, five rebounds and three steals for the Golden Gophers (15-5, 3-4 Big Ten).

John Shurna scored 21 points for the Wildcats (12-7, 2-5), but he shot just 8 of 21 and scored 10 of those points in the final 11 minutes with the game already decided.

Northwestern shot 32.7 percent and missed its first 15 shots of the game to lose for the fourth time in five games. Drew Crawford, the Big Ten's third-leading scorer at 17.6 points per game, managed just five points on 2 for 10 shooting.
