It seems like every time I post a game thread it's the latest and greatest must win game of the year. This one is a definite must win for the maroon and gold. Not only must the Gophers stay away from a 3 game losing streak, but this game is at home against the worst Indiana team, maybe ever?
For the Gophers the task is simple. Protect the basketball. Play solid defense. Take quality shots. Win. If Al Nolen is out of control and sloppy, this game could be close.
After missing my first Minnesota game all year this past weekend against Ohio State (was in Richmond for a political shindig), I'll be back in my chaise lounger with gold sweatshirt on rooting the boys to victory.
See you in the comments.
