Gophers Knock off Georgetown
Minneapolis (Gophersports.com) - The University of Minnesota women's basketball team moved to 3-0 on the season, beating Georgetown 68-60 Friday night at Williams Arena.
Carlie Wagner scored 21 points and Kenisha Bell turned in a double-double with 10 points and 10 assists on Friday night at Williams Arena. Wagner has surpassed the 20-point mark in all three of the Gophers' games this season. Bell's points-assists double-double was the first for a Minnesota player since Jan. 22, 2015 when Shayne Mullaney posted one.
Minnesota overcame an early deficit to take the lead, then held off a late charge by the Hoyas. Wagner scored nine points in the fourth to help the Gophers keep the lead.
All three of the Gophers' wins have been against 2016 WNIT qualifiers, and at least their next two games will be against 2016 NCAA Tournament teams.
