    ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Tubby Smith got his 400th career win as Minnesota beat Michigan 77-65 on Thursday night.

    Minnesota led by as many as 22 late in the second half after the Golden Gophers scored the first eight points of the half to take a 42-26 lead.

    Both teams were sluggish to begin the game, but the Golden Gophers pulled away for an 11-2 lead on Damian Johnson's dunk with 14:41 left.

    Jamal Abu-Shamala pushed the lead to 11 at 17-6 with 12:24 remaining in the opening half.
