Keys to a Gopher Win

Contain Mack and Jack -
Myles Mack had 26 at Williams Arena in the only meeting between these two teams and he was 4/7 from three. Containing scorers has been a problem and has really hurt the Gophers at times this year.

Find Some Offense -
Particularly, find some balance on offense. Andre Hollins may have a big scoring tonight, he may not. We have come to expect the inconsistency. But regardless of how effective he is tonight, other scorers need to compliment him or pick up the slack.

Typically I would feel pretty confident about this game, but this team has been frustrating and has given me no reason to be confident. Lets hope they play well, gain some confidence and momentum.
