In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Minnesota at Wisconsin.
Minnesota is 11-2 but they had an easier schedule than Wisconsin so far in the season. The Golden Gophers are on a 5-game winning streak and they are coming off a 71-53 win over Mount St. Mary. Dupree McBrayer led the Gophers with 15 points on 5 of 10 shooting with 3 threes while Amir Coffey added 13 points. Minnesota is averaging 76.2 points per game on 44% shooting.
The Wisconsin Badgers are 10-3 on the year and will look to bounce back after losing to Western Kentucky 83-76. Brad Davison had a huge game, scoring 26 points with 3 threes and 4 steals but that wasn’t enough for the victory. Ethan had a double-double, finishing with 20 points and 12 rebounds. As a team, Wisconsin is averaging 76.5 points per game on 49.1% shooting from the field, 39.1% from behind the arc and 69.4% from the foul line this season.
I expect Happ and company to bounce back in this one with a much-improved performance. Minnesota is an overrated team that will soon start to lose games because it will face the big sides in college basketball.
