Gophers Travel to Madison Looking to End Their Current 5-Game Losing Streak - OPEN THREAD

The Badgers kicked off this current streak of pain, suffering and apathy. Can the Gophers get a win to regain some confidence?

Game Time: 7:00

Pos Minnesota Pnt/Gm Pnt/Gm #15 - Wisconsin Pos
PG Julian Welch 10.2 14.3 Jordan Taylor
G Joe Coleman 5.5 7.8 Josh Gasser G
G/F Austin Hollins 8.8 10.7 Ryan Evans
F Rodney Williams 10.7 6.1 Mike Bruesewitz F
C Ralph Sampson III 7.7 10.6 Jared Berggren C
Bench Andre Hollins 6.1 8.0 Ben Brust Bench
Bench Chip Armelin 5.7 2.0 Frank Kaminsky
Bench Eliott Eliason
2.6 2.9 Rob Wilson

Match-ups are meaningless. The Gophers have to play with some passion, not to win this game but to show that they have some pride and competitiveness.

In the last four years the Gopher basketball team is 8-20 in the month of February.

  • 1-6 this year
  • 1-6 last year
  • 4-3 in 2010
  • 2-5 in 2009

That adds up to a .229 win percentage in a month when teams should be getting better (those in favor of replacing Tubby, you are welcome for that little stat). Winning today on the road would be really nice for everyone wouldn' t it?
