Minnesota Basketball: Gophers vs. Coastal Carolina - OPEN THREAD for a game nobody can actually watch

Marilyn Indahl-USA TODAY Sports

The Gophers fourth game of the year and this one is also not available on TV anywhere. Last year I recall that the first couple games were not televised but this is game four with one more game on the schedule you'll only be able to see online. Even basketball juggernauts like Northwestern and Nebraska have had games televised. Kind of unacceptable in my opinion, but I'll move on.

Time: 7:00 CST
Radio: AM 1500 ESPN
Internet Feed: maybe

Coastal Carolina comes to town for what is technically the first game of the Maui Invitational (in lovely Minneapolis).

Pos. Minnesota Golden Gophers
Pnt/Gm Pnt/Gm Coastal Carolina Chanticleers (1-2) Pos.
PG Dre Mattieu 7.0 7.0 Eric Smith PG
G Andre Hollins 22.7 15.0 Elijah Wilson G
G Austin Hollins 11.0 11.0 Warren Gillis F
F Oto Osenieks 7.7 9.3 Michel Enanga F
F Elliott Eliason 6.3 6.3 El Hadji Ndiequene C
Bench Malik Smith 6.7 9.7 Josh Cameron Bench
Bench Joey King 13.0 4.0 Colton Ray-St. Cyr Bench
Bench Maverick Ahanmisi 2.7 3.7 Tristian Curtis Bench

The Chanticleers are 1-2 and gave Ole Miss all they could handle in a 70-72 loss. But KenPom says we are a 97% favorite to win so I'm not exactly sweating this one.

I haven't been able to watch the Gophers yet and I won't be watching this one so I don't have a whole lot to say about this game except, Better Dead Than Red!
