Minnesota is off to a hot start which they needed after last season. This will be their first road game and their first against a real opponent.
FSU has had just one slip up but the thing you really notice is how they have been scoring like crazy. They have some real talent.
This game helps kick off the annual ACC vs. Big Ten Challenge.
Minnesota Golden Gophers
Minnesota sunk way down in the B10 last season so this year they are looking for some redemption. Their best win so far is probably against Arkansas out of the SEC. FSU will be a test.
There are lots of freshman making a splash around the country and Minnesota has their version too in the form of skinny guard Amir Coffey.
He leads the team in scoring thanks to a nice midrange game – he dropped 30 on St. John’s.
The Gophers top three scorers are perimeter players but they have some lumber inside too with three bigs averaging 7 or more rebounds per game.
Jordan Murphy who is only 6’6″ but 240 is showing promise as a sophomore.
Eric Curry is just a frosh but already has the bulk to bang in the paint, that will prove useful in this one as FSU is blessed with lots of size.
The Gophers are playing solid defense giving up just 66 points per game. They are 19th in FG% allowed at just 36%.
Minnesota may have a good season or not, it is too early to tell. One factor will be whether they can find some shooters. Soph Dupree McBrayer is the only regular who is an outside threat.
He has been sharp early but does not have the track record to support that.
Florida State Seminoles
When it comes to talent Florida State is in the upper echelon. They may not be Duke or Kentucky or Kansas but they are not far off. It is juts how they are able, or not able, to put it all together.
Dwayne Bacon flirted with the NBA after last year but so far the decision to return looks like the right one. His scoring is up thanks to better shooting. He could do more in terms of other contributions though.
Which would help his draft status too.
Another player with an NBA future is frosh Jonathan Isaac. He has been really impressive as a stretch 4 who can be efficient both inside and outside the arc. He will probably continue to get better as the season progresses too.
Xavier Rathan-Mayes has seen his numbers slip but he has proven that on any given day he can be the best player on the team. FSU has nice scoring options and nice size.
They are going to be hard for Minnesota to handle, especially at home.

Free Minnesota Golden Gophers vs. Florida State Seminoles NCAAB Prediction:
The talent definitely leans to the Florida State side but they love to prove that is not the only thing that matters.
Minnesota may be undefeated but as they hit the road for the first time this is too much to ask.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Florida State
FSU is a tough team to play against. Minnesota will want to slow things down but I am not sure they can.
