Looking for a little inspiration the night before the Big Ten season opener? Check out Minnesota’s 2001 victory over Indiana at The Barn, airing on the Big Ten network tomorrow at 5 pm central time.

1/20/2001 – Minnesota 78, Indiana 74 (OT)
Minnesota trailed 68-55 with 3:18 to play in regulation before going on a 14-1 run to tie the game and force overtime. Dusty Rychart scored 21 points, including two free throws with three seconds remaining in the extra period, to lead Minnesota past Indiana, 78-74. Kirk Haston had 17 points and 11 rebounds for Indiana.

It was a rough year for the Gophers, and this was probably the premier victory of that season, and who doesn’t love Dusty Rychart?
