It’s a Big Ten match up on Thursday night in Minneapolis. The Nebraska Cornhuskers travel North to take on the Minnesota Golden Gophers.
This is a match up between two teams who have had surprising seasons, but for totally different reasons. This is the first match up of the year between the two teams. Nebraska has won four of the last five games.
The Nebraska Cornhuskers have had a disappointing season but the future is still bright for them. They have a couple of big time recruits coming in next year, and their team this year is very young.
The Cornhuskers come into this game with a record of 12-16 and sit in 11th place in the Big Ten Conference. They have been blown out in their last two games.
The Cornhuskers struggle on both sides of the floor. They score just over 70 points per game which is 249th in the country. On the defensive side of the ball they give up 71.7 points per game which is 149th in the country.
For Nebraska to win they need to slow down the pace of play and really make this a half court game. If this game gets to be a run and gun game they will have problems coming out of this game with the upset win.
Minnesota Golden Gophers
This is a huge game for the Minnesota Golden Gophers as they try to keep a top four seed in the Big Ten to get the double bye come tournament time.
The Gophers come into this game with a record of 22-7 and sit tied for 4th place in the Big Ten Conference. With a tough game against the Badgers coming up, they need to win this game if they want a shot at a top four seed. They have won seven games in a row.
The Gophers are solid on both sides of the ball. They score 76.1 points per game well giving up only 68.9 points. Lately it has been the offense that has been really good. They have scored more than 80 points in their last three games.
For the Gophers to win they need to push the pace in this game. The faster this game is played at the better the chances the Gophers have to win this game. They also need to get off to an early start. The Gophers fans are really starting to buy in on this team and “the Barn” should be rocking on Thursday night.
