They're....not playing well tonight.  I expect to see a much different team in the Barn on Wednesday.

They look a lot better when they're hitting the 3 - when they aren't, they seem to look a little lost on offense.

 

I like our chances to steal one on the road the way we're defending the 3. And if we can get Murphy in some foul trouble - he loves to go for ball fakes - I really like our chances.

Spot on. Not having a point guard hurt them a lot and not giving that Washington more minutes is an interesting coaching choice

Gabe Kalschuer won 3 State titles at DeLasalle high in the Twin Cities & has had a couple 19+ point games as a Frosh. He disappeared last night. Are real concerns tho are Amir Coffey & Murphy. Even on the road I think we win by double digits.

Here's Gabe Kalschuer's advanced stats profile on KenPom:

Looks like he made a lot of hay against Utah and Santa Clara.

 

 

Now compare and contrast that to Glynn Watson:

In my very humble opinion:

If the good Minnesota team shows up, and we don't show up to play, they will win.

If the good Minnesota team shows up, and the good Husker team shows up, we will win.

If the bad Minnesota team shows up, we will win...we will win big if we play well, and we will win a tight one if we play bad.

Minnesota is young. I haven’t been able to watch much of them up here but I think it all starts and stops with stopping Murphy or at least letting him be the only one to beat us.

Coffey hasn’t been nearly what I thought he might be at this point but he can score.

Minnesota is young enough that I think if we can frustrate them and play smart we should be able to win.

Not a must win but I still look at Minnesota as a 6-10(in where they finish in the standings/not record)in the B1G this year so gotta win these games because the rest of the B1G won’t be easy.

I’ll try to get a feel for the team and share a better scouting report.

Every message board is chattering about Hoiberg.  Illinois Loyalty has a thread on him as well.

 

The reality is he's likely to either wait for a blue blood job (like UCLA) to become available or get another NBA or maybe G-League gig rather than try to resurrect another moribund hoops program.
