LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) — DeAndre Mathieu scored 17 points and Minnesota came back in the second half to beat Chaminade 83-68 at the Maui Invitational on Wednesday.

The Golden Gophers turned around a 9-point deficit in the second half by forcing the Division II school into bad shots and five turnovers over the final 10 minutes.

Down 59-53 with 9:27 left, Minnesota prevented Chaminade from making it past midcourt within 10 seconds, leading to a second consecutive layup for Maurice Walker. Malik Smith cut the deficit to 3 points on Minnesota’s next possession.

Minnesota (6-2) then went on a 13-point run during which Chaminade committed three turnovers and missed five 3-pointers.

The win allowed Minnesota to salvage a win in Hawaii after two straight losses.

Lee Bailey scored 18 points for the Silverswords (2-3).
