    Minnesota 65, Northwestern 63

    EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) -- Emily Fox, taking advantage of a Northwestern mistake in the final seconds of the game, drained a 15-foot jumper as time expired Thursday to give Minnesota a 65-63 victory.

    Northwestern's Sara Stutz had tied the game with 28 seconds to play, and Minnesota's Brittany McCoy missed a jumper from the free-throw line on the Gophers' next possession. But the next few moments went the Gophers' way.

    The Wildcats' Melissa Miller snared the rebound after McCoy's missed shot -- then lost control of the ball. Fox grabbed the loose ball, took two dribbles and fired the winning shot.

    Ashley Ellis-Milan scored a career-high 21 points and grabbed ten rebounds to lead the Gophers (11-6, 3-2 Big Ten). McCoy added 13 points and Korinne Campbell chipped in eight points and eleven rebounds off the bench.

    For Northwestern (6-11, 0-4) Stutz, Miller and A.J. Glasauer each scored 14 points.
