BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -- Suddenly, beating ranked opponents is becoming a regular thing for Indiana.

Six days after snapping a 19-game losing streak against Top 25 foes, the Hoosiers did it again Wednesday night -- and this time the fans didn't even storm the court.

Juniors Tom Pritchard and Verdell Jones each scored 12 points, and the Hoosiers led from start to finish, holding off two second-half comebacks by No. 18 Minnesota for a 60-57 victory.
