BTN

Jordan Murphy is just dominating anyone and everyone right now. I kind of feel bad for the starting PF for the Bulldogs tonight as Murphy has to be the centerpiece of what they are trying to slow down.

Bulldog coach, Donnie Marsh is in his first season at Alabama A&M after spending a few years at Florida International. His first year is going to be a long one.

KEYS TO A GOPHER WIN

  • Don’t get Hurt - That’s it. Just don’t get hurt.

There are 351 teams in D1 basketball and accoridng to KenPom, Alabama A&M is ranked 350th. Losing this game would be an epic failure on so many levels. They rank 348th in offensive efficiency and they rank 348th in defensive efficiency. It is going to be a long year in Normal, Alabama. And it is going to be a dominant game by the Gophers.

PREDICTION

Minnesota - 101
Alabama A&M - 69
