The Gophers get back to facing a BCS level opponent. The Red Storm has a dynamic and potent backcourt, Harrison was selected as a first team all-Big East in the preseason while Rysheed Jordan was a second teamer. Overall the Big East coaches pegged the Red Storm to finish third in the conference standings. This is a potential NCAA team and the opportunity for a resume building win.

It all comes down to establishing our defense and keeping Jordan & Harrison in check.
