The Arkansas Red Wolves travel to Minneapolis to take on the Golden Gophers in both teams last game before the Holiday break.
This is a good game for both teams to get a win that will look good for them when it comes to selection time for the NCAA tournament.
This is the first meeting between the two teams.
Arkansas State Red Wolves
The Arkansas State Red Wolves have had a much improved season this year. The Red Wolves started the season 4-7 last year so their 9-3 record is a big improvement.
The Red Wolves already have that signature win on the season as they beat Georgetown earlier this year. A team can never have enough good wins on their resume though, so Friday’s match up is a good opportunity.
Their three loses come against NDSU, TCU and Alabama. In their three loses they have lost by over 10 points.
The Red Wolves are led by senior guard Devin Carter. He is averaging 17.3 points and 3.5 rebounds per game.
On the offensive end the Wolves average 73.5 points per game well shooting 46.9 percent from the field.
The Red Wolves need to come out in this game and make shots early. The Gophers have a good defense and once teams are down they put you away. For the Wolves to win they can not dig themselves in an early hole.
Minnesota Golden Gophers
The Minnesota Golden Gophers are off to their best start in quite some time at 12-1. Their only loss came against a very good Florida State team.
The Gophers have wins over the likes of UT-Arlington and Arkansas, both who should be tournament teams.
The Gophers will get a big boost in getting Freshman Amir Coffey back. He sat out the last game with turf toe, but should be good to go for this one.
The Gophers will really need his play making and scoring to get the win over the upset minded Red Wolves team.
The Gophers are one of the best defensive teams in the country. Opposing teams only score 63.8 points per game. They also only shoot 36.2 percent from the field which is sixth best in the country.
The Gophers are perfect at home so far this season and look to continue that on Friday.

The Gophers are not only good on the offensive end but also the defensive end.
