So Iowa is pretty good this year, like legit good and a team capable of making a run to the Final Four. Minnesota is...well, this may not be pretty.
Keys to a Gopher Win (yes, I realize the futile-ness of this exercise)
So You're Saying There's a Chance - Like any of this matters. There are so many things that we have to do that we haven't done all year. Defend the three, make some threes, stay out of foul trouble, make free throws, take better shots, play some team defense...basic things that have been issues all year. It doesn't matter, if we do a bunch of things we haven't done all year...maybe we have a chance.
Prediction: Gophers put it all together and get a huge win. Suck it Iowa.
