Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

YAY! The Gophs are on TV tonight! Now I just have to get home in time to watch the 6:00 tip off.

Time: 6:00 CST
Radio: AM 1500 ESPN

Looks like Joey King is out for tonight's game, giving Wally Ellenson more minutes on the floor.

A couple years ago Wofford had a few local kids on their roster and this was a decent mid-major team who I believe made two NCAA Tournament appearances. Now there are no MN kids and they are expected to be a middle of the pack SoCon team.

Wofford is a bad rebounding team, they turn the ball over and they are not particularly strong defensively. Minnesota is a 96% favorite and I would expect that the Gophers should have no problem beating the Terriers tonight.
