Minnesota is off to a good start this season, they need it too after a bad 2015/16.
Tookie Brown might be one of the best names in college hoops. You probably haven’t heard of him but he leads the GSU in rebounds.
Minnesota should get another win under their belt here. They will need to stockpile as many as possible before B10 play starts.
Georgia Southern Eagles
The Eagles saw their three game winning streak ended by Florida Gulf Coast last weekend. This will be their second game against Major competition this season.
The first was their opener at NC State, a game they lost by just a bucket against a team many think is Tournament bound. They have played a lot on the road early.
Ike Smith is one of the most prolific scorers in the country, averaging 21ppg in less than 30 minutes of action. He is consistent too, having scored 19 or more in all but one game.
GSU does not have a lot of size with basically nobody over 6’8″ seeing any sort of regular minutes. That is likely to be a challenge against Power teams who can push them around inside.
They are not a great shooting team either so they are going to have to find some way to equalize things.
This will be just their fourth lined game so you have a sense of their competition so far. Minnesota is not unbeatable but they are fighting above their weight class.
Minnesota Golden Gophers
The Gophers have some decent wins and their only loss on the season was to Florida State in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.
Amir Coffey has been really good as a frosh but he was shutdown by the Seminoles. He did score 3o points against St. John’s though, an indicator of his potential. He and Nate Mason are forming a steady guard pair that will try and keep the team in it in the B10.
Jordan Murphy is a short but powerful player who leads the team in rebounds. He has three double-doubles on the season so far. He just has to stick to putbacks as he is not much of a shooter.
The Gophers have been solid but but making anyone any money so far with a 3-3 ATS record. They are playing good defense yielding just 66ppg.

Free Georgia State Eagles vs. Minnesota Golden Gophers NCAAB Prediction:
Minnesota should be able to hold the Eagles in check. We might get a line here I would expect MIN -10
If Ike Smith goes off the Eagles might be able to keep it close. They have some athletes. .
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Gophers ATS
Minnesota just has to bank wins at this point. It does not have to be pretty and it might not be.
