Minnesota Golden Gophers
Eight games into their non-conference schedule, the Golden Gophers of the University of Minnesota have played no less than five quality opponents.
Unfortunately, they have lost four of them: to Oklahoma, Butler, Utah and DePaul. The most recent quality opponent was Clemson, however, which Minnesota defeated, 78–60.
Sophomores Marcus Carr and Daniel Oturu combined for forty-five points in the victory. They are the two leading scorers, along with a third sophomore Gabe Kaischeur. Junior Payton Willis averages twelve points per game.
So Minnesota may still be a year away. Then again, the strong schedule has it fairly high in the rating systems, despite a 4–4 record, and the Big Ten schedule offers plenty of opportunity itself.
Iowa played its first conference game in Michigan on Friday night and it gave up 103 points to the Wolverines, which won by twelve.
Luke Garza shot seventeen of thirty-two for forty-four points in the loss. Iowa’s junior center leads the team in scoring and is among the leaders across the country with 22.7 points per game.
Garza was a top 100 guys coming out of high school but just barely; he was ranked 93rd in the RSCI Top 100.
After scoring twelve points per game as a freshman and thirteen as a sophomore, Garza is in the midst of breaking out as a junior. He shoots it efficiently from inside (fifty-eight percent) and the outside (forty-three percent). Ten rebounds and less than two turnovers per game to boot will do.
