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.
