MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Luke Loewe has found his stride in his first and only season with Minnesota. The initiation into Big Ten play brought his share of struggles. The 3-pointer has become Loewe’s friend again. The 6-foot-4 guard went 6 for 10 from long range for the Gophers in their most recent game. They host 13th-ranked Wisconsin on Wednesday. The Badgers are Loewe’s home-state team. The transfer from William & Mary grew up with a love of fishing and has aspirations of professional angling. He won a junior national bass fishing championship as a teenager.
