RECAP: Trevor Mbakwe had 21 points and 12 rebounds Tuesday, Feb. 26, at Williams Arena to help Minnesota relieve the pressure in a big way with its first victory over a No. 1 team since 1989. The chances of the Gophers (19-9, 7-8) pulling off the monumental upset seemed bleak when Mbakwe picked up his third foul early in the second half. But Elliott Eliason scored seven points off the bench to spark a 20-8 run by Minnesota for a 56-52 lead.
