GameThread: Illinois at Minnesota

The latest, greatest, biggest game of the year is upon us. The Gophers have a chance tonight for another win that the talking heads can point to come March.

More importantly, the Gophers need to begin to create an aura on their home court. Purdue came in and pushed the Gophers around. Granted, Purdue is a more tested and superior team. OK, fine. But if the Gophers are going to turn this season into something relatively special (a win or two in the tournament) they need to start beating equal or slightly superior teams on their home floor.

Something tells me the Gophers have a slight chip on their shoulder and will come out poised and focused tonight. Let's hope so.

See you below.
