Gophers take on Wolverines tonight

The University of Minnesota Gophers men’s basketball team will take on the Michigan Wolverines at Crisler Arena tonight at 6 p.m. Sadly the game will only be on the Big Ten network, but many local bars have nice spots where you can watch the Gophers basketball team.

The Wolverines have a very talented freshman guard named Manny Harris. Harris is averaging 16.2 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.1 assists in 32.5 minutes per game. Despite the explosiveness of Harris, the Wolverines are still only 1-7 in the Big Ten Conference so far, which is worse than the Gophers 2-4 mark. The Gophers are also 2-4 in road games this year, but this matchup versus a weaker opponent gives them a good opportunity to improve on that mark. Look for Blake Hoffarber to fire up a few threes and Lawrence McKenzie to penetrate the lane. Let’s go Gophers!
