KenPom has us as 95% favorites tonight and this game shouldn't be in question in the second half. Stranger things have happened (I'm looking at you Michigan...twice) but with the way this crew is playing defense and turning that into points, we should be OK.

The interesting thing to look for is to see if Gaston Diedhiou will get any playing time when the game is in hand now that he has been added to the roster. He is just coming alongside the team and clearly has much to learn about what we are trying to do on both ends of the floor, but if he is expected to contribute in the Big Ten season I would imagine they will try to get him as much experience as possible in these last three non-conference games.

The best news of all is that this game is going to be broadcast on a real TV station. Enjoy watching some Gopher hoops tonight, it should be a nice Gopher win.
