That Felt Great - Gophers Go on the Road to Get Their First Big Ten Win

Boy did we need that. OK, maybe I needed that as I've been pretty down on this current club, but I am sure the Gopher locker room is a much more pleasant place to be than it has been over the last couple weeks.

The Gophers get a huge road win over a ranked Big Ten opponent ending a 10-game Big Ten losing streak.

Tubby made another lineup change and regardless of the outcome of the game, I think this is a lineup I can get behind. Joe Coleman remains a starter and Austin Hollins got back his starting role at the expense of Maverick Ahanmisi. I'm not proposing that we won because of the lineup change, but I do like it. Coleman is playing better in the starting role and Hollins responded great after his temporary relegation to the bench.

Those two are your stars of the game. Hollins scored 18 points on 7/10 shooting. Coleman only had eight points but he also was 4/4 from free throw line in the final minute. The two of those guys combined for one turnover. On top of those two the team played great on defense holding Indiana to 4/18 from three and they grabbed 16 offensive rebounds.

I won't want to over-analyze this win too much. It was a huge win, over a ranked team, on the road. It was our first win of the Big Ten season. I'm greedy and I'd like more of them.
