MINNEAPOLIS — Nate Mason had 18 points, six rebounds and six assists to help Minnesota get its first Big Ten win of the season with a stunning 68-63 defeat of No. 6 Maryland on Thursday night.

Jordan Murphy added 17 points and 11 rebounds and Joey King had 15 points and six boards for Minnesota (7-19, 1-13 Big Ten), which shot just 33 percent.

Rasheed Sulaimon scored 28 points for Maryland (22-5, 10-4 Big Ten), which has lost consecutive games thanks to another listless performance. Melo Trimble had 10 points on 3-for-11 shooting and the Terrapins turned the ball over 15 times.

The Williams Arena crowd stormed the court when time expired to celebrate Minnesota’s first Big Ten regular-season win since beating Michigan State on Feb. 26, 2015.
