It’s a Big Ten match up on Wednesday night at “The Barn.”
The Indiana Hoosiers come to town to take on the Minnesota Golden Gophers.
This is the first match up of the year between the two teams. The Hoosiers have won the last three meetings between the two teams.
To say Tom Crean and the Indiana Hoosiers have had a down season would be a big understatement.
After starting the season 10-2 hopes were high that this team would make another final four run. But that hope soon turned to dismay when they started losing a lot of games.
They come into this game with a 15-11 record and sit in 10th place in the Big Ten. They have lost the last three games to the Badgers, Boilermakers and the Wolverines.
Although the Big Dance is probably out of the question, right now coach Crean is coaching for his job, and his players need to come up big in this game against the Golden Gophers.
The Hoosiers are led by Justin Blackmon Jr.
He is averaging 16.8 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game. For the Hoosiers to win this game he needs to have a big game.
Minnesota Golden Gophers
On the other side of this battle is the Minnesota Golden Gophers. They are one of the most surprising teams in the Big Ten, in a very good way.
The Gophers come into this game with an 18-7 record and sit in 6th place in the Big Ten. They are projected to make the NCAA Tournament, and if they get hot, they could make a big run in the dance.
The Gophers come into this game riding a three game winning streak.
The Gophers are led by a total team effort. They have six players who average more then eight points per game. Nate Mason is the leader of that group. He averages 14.5 points and 5.3 assists per game.
For the Gophers to win they need to stay out of foul trouble.
Reggie Lynch is the leader of this team on the defensive side of the ball. He averages 3.2 blocks per game but he gets into foul trouble a lot. If he stays out of foul trouble the Gophers will win this game.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Underdog is 19-7 ATS in the last 26 meetings.
- MINN is 12-11 ATS this year.
- IND is 12-12 ATS this year.
