Two more games in the brutal stretch of ranked opponents. After securing a nice win over #9 Ohio State, the Gophers hit the road to Iowa City where #14 Iowa awaits. This is a pretty good Iowa club...

Pos. Minnesota Golden Gophers Pnt/Gm Pnt/Gm #14 Iowa Hawkeyes Pos.
PG Deandre Mathieu 11.5 6.8 Mike Gessell PG
G Andre Hollins 15.9 16.4 Roy Devyn Marble G
G Austin Hollins 11.8 7.8 Melsahn Basabe F
F Oto Osenieks 6.9 13.8 Aaron White F
F Elliott Eliason 6.8 5.7 Adam Woodbury F
Bench Malik Smith 9.9 10.3 Jarrod Uthoff Bench
Bench Joey King 6.4 5.2 Josh Oglesby Bench
Bench Maurice Walker 4.8 7.1 Zach McCabe Bench

Some interesting match-ups in this game. I tend to like the match-up of Mathieu vs. Gessell for the Gophers, I just don't see Gessell containing little Dre in the half-court. And the Eliason vs. Woodbury battle

On the other hand, I don't like Andre vs. Devyn Marble
