Minnesota Vs. Central Michigan Final Score: Minnesota Beats Central Michigan 76-56

No Trevor Mbakwe, no problem. So far, at least.

The Minnesota Golden Gophers won again on Tuesday night without their star forward, who is sidelined for the remainder of the season with a torn ACL. Minnesota topped Central Michigan 76-56 to extend their winning streak to five games. With the win, Minnesota improves to 11-1 on the season.

A balanced and efficient night on the offensive end carried Minnesota, as the team shot a scalding 57.4 % from the field and made 8-17 three-pointers. Guard Julian Welch led the Golden Gophers with 15 points on a tidy 5-9 shooting night while Joe Coleman and Austin Hollins also added 12 points each.

The Golden Gophers will have a week of rest before they take on the 7-2 North Dakota State Bison on Dec. 22 -- their final game before starting the conference schedule on Dec. 27 against the No. 19 Illinois Fightin' Illini.
