King scores 20, Minnesota beats Rutgers 80-68 in Big Ten

CHICAGO (AP) No sooner did Minnesota pass its first test in the Big Ten Tournament than it had payback in mind.

Joey King hit six 3-pointers and scored 20 to lead Minnesota to an 80-68 victory over Rutgers in the first round on Wednesday. The Golden Gophers will meet Ohio State on Thursday. The Buckeyes edged them 74-72 in overtime in January.

"We feel like we let (that) one go," Minnesota guard Nate Mason said. "All we have to do is play our game and focus on the little things - rebound, play defense - and don't let them get off to a hot start."
