Michigan picked up an emotional victory on Thursday but doesn’t have long to regroup before another difficult game (1:00 p.m., BTN). The Wolverines are on the road in Minneapolis this weekend in search of their first win in an opponent’s gym this season.
Minnesota is just 8-7 on the season but has faced the 6th most difficult schedule in college basketball, per KenPom. The Gophers have already played seven quadrant one games this year, but are just 1-6 in those contests. The lone Q1 victory was at home, where Minnesota is 7-1, against Ohio State.
Michigan has won five games in a row, and 14 out of 15, against Minnesota, but it is still a tough task to go on the road and win in the conference — especially if Isaiah Livers misses his fourth straight game.
