Can the Gophers make it three straight wins at Assembly Hall (last year @Ind and this week @Ill)? Historically the Gophers do not do well against Indiana with a .401 win percentage in 152 games dating back to 1912. We are only worse against Illinois (.343) and Ohio State (.361). But we beat a #8 ranked Hoosier team last year coming off a 4-game losing streak.

As good and balanced of a starting lineup as you will find in all of college basketball. There are interesting defensive match-ups at every single position. This should be a fascinating game.
