MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Tubby Smith spoke softly at the podium, again lamenting costly turnovers and bad decisions by his once-surging team.
Removing his glasses and rubbing his eyes, the Minnesota coach wondered out aloud whether he'd have to bring in psychological help for his struggling players who fell to Illinois 57-53 Sunday.
Smith says the team is talking about their problems and working to fix them, but says they're still "a real concern."
Austin Hollins led Minnesota with 16 points and Trevor Mbakwe had 13 points and 10 rebounds. But he also had four of his team's 13 turnovers, none more costly than with 50 seconds left and Illinois leading 54-53.
