It’s a Big Ten showdown on Saturday at “The Barn.”
The Penn State Nittany Lions travel to Minnesota to take on the Golden Gophers.
This is the second match up of the year between the two teams. Penn State won the first match up 52-50.
Penn State Nittany Lions
This was supposed to be the turning year for the Penn State Nittany Lions. People had high hopes that this was the year they would make the NCAA Tournament.
Now although they have had a decent season so far, the NCAA Tournament is not in the cards, unless they somehow won the Big Ten tournament which is a long shot.
Penn State comes into this game with a record of 14-14 record and sit in 9th place in the Big 10 conference. They have gone 2-4 in their last six games. One of those wins was over Maryland who was ranked 21st at the time.
The problems have came at the end of games for the Nittany Lions. They have lost a lot of games by four or less points, or that have gone to overtime. If they would have won just a few of those games we might be talking about how Penn State was sitting on the bubble for a berth.
Penn State has four players who average more then 11 points per game. The leader of that group is Freshman guard Tony Carr. He is averaging 12.9 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 4 assists per game.
For Penn State to win they need to get off to the fast start. The Barn will be rocking on Saturday when the two teams play and they need to take the crowd out of it early.
Minnesota Golden Gophers
The Minnesota Golden Gophers have been one of the most surprising teams in all the land. They are also one of the hottest teams in the NCAA.
Right now the Gophers are not playing for a bid into the NCAA Tournament, they are playing for their seed. If they win out and get a few wins in the Big 10 tournament, we could be talking about a Gophers team that is top four seed.
They come into this game with a record of 21-7 and sit in 4th place in the Big Ten conference. They also need to continue to win to get that top four seed, and a first round bye in the Big Ten Tournament.
The Gophers are led by a very balanced attack.
They have five players who average more then 10 points per game. Nate Mason is the leader of that group averaging 15.1 points and 5.3 assists per game.
