Minnesota took a 5-1 lead over Indiana early Wednesday at Williams Arena, but Miller Kopp had the hot hand that put the Hoosiers back on top.
After missing his first try, Race Thompson secured an offensive rebound and tapped it back to Kopp for his first 3-pointer to give Indiana a 7-5 lead. Just a minute later, Trayce found Jackson-Davis Kopp transitioning into another long-range make, giving Indiana a 10-7 lead.
Nearly halfway through the first half, Kopp leads the Hoosiers by six points in 2-on-3 3-point shooting. He’s now shooting 46.1 percent from beyond the arc this season.
