    MINNEAPOLIS -- Freshman Colton Iverson had 14 points and seven rebounds to lead Minnesota to a 66-56 victory over Virginia on Tuesday night.

    Blake Hoffarber scored 12 points, Damien Johnson had three steals and three blocks and Al Nolen added five steals for defensive-minded Minnesota (7-0), which scored 20 points off 19 Virginia turnovers.

    Star freshman Sylven Landesberg scored 10 points on 1-for-11 shooting for the Cavaliers (3-3), who shot just 31 percent from the field. The McDonald's All-American entered the night leading young Virginia in scoring with 20.8 points per game. But his lone field goal came with 1:31 to play and the outcome already decided.

    It was just the third win for the Big Ten in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.

    Jamil Tucker led Virginia with 12 points on 4-for-8 shooting from 3-point range.
