MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Kenisha Bell scored 21 points, Carlie Wagner added 15, combining for six free throws in the final 25 seconds, and Minnesota handed No. 20 Iowa its third straight loss 77-72 on Sunday.

Taiye Bello had 12 points, and Destiny Pitts and Bryanna Fernstrom 11 each for the Golden Gophers (16-5, 5-3 Big Ten Conference). Bell also had 11 rebounds, seven assists and three steals.

Kathleen Doyle had 21 points for Iowa (15-5, 3-4) and Megan Gustafson had 20 and 10 rebounds.
