It wasn’t all that long ago these two teams faced off in Minneapolis. Minnesota controlled things early before Indiana stepped up their defensive pressure and Trayce Jackson-Davis dominated.

KEYS TO A GOPHER WIN

Stop Trayce Jackson-Davis - I was nervous about this guy the first time around and had a career game. This is just a really bad matchup for the Gophers and it will be interesting to see how we adjust. But if he has 27 points and 16 boards again, this will be over with 10 minutes left.

Make free throws - If you manage to handle the first key, then we have to make free throws cause we very well may be in this one.

PREDICTION

Gophers lose a close one. Winning on the road is not easy and this team hasn’t figured out how to close games. We may even lead in this game, but I predict a Hoosiers win.

Minnesota - 66
Indiana - 70
