MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The nationally-ranked Minnesota women's basketball team will play the rest of its home games this season at Williams Arena because of water damage to the Sports Pavilion floor.
The No. 22 Golden Gophers (15-4, 5-3 Big Ten) were forced to move their game against Indiana last Sunday to Williams, an adjacent arena used by the Gopher men's team, when a pipe burst and flooded the Pavilion.
Minnesota set a school record for attendance at a women's game against the Hoosiers, drawing 11,389 fans to its 75-60 victory. The old record was 6,746, a game also played at Williams Arena in 1993.
The Sports Pavilion holds 5,700 people.
The Gophers have four home games remaining.
