Interestingly in this short season, we actually share two common opponents with the North Florida Ospreys. they have lost to Memphis and Florida State, both teams that the Gophers faced and dispatched.

At a VERY high level, North Florida is not a very efficient team offensively scoring less than a point per possession and they are a decent defensive team allowing 0.977 points per possession. They turn the ball over a LOT and they are not very good at rebounding on either end of the floor.

This one shouldn't be close. I do have a healthy fear of South Dakota State and North Dakota State, both are coming up soon, but I think we'll see a lot of minutes in the second half for more of the bench guys.
