2023-24 Season

Game 14: Minnesota at Michigan Preview

Michigan returns to league action tonight against Minnesota (9:00 p.m., Peacock) at the Crisler Center for a needed fresh start.

The Golden Gophers are 10-3 and have climbed 134 spots from last year’s KenPom finish but are benefitting from a schedule constructed by a head coach on the hot seat. Minnesota has only played two games outside Minneapolis (both losses), nine games against sub-200 ranked teams (all wins) and has faced the worst non-conference schedule in the country, per KenPom.

The Gophers have taken a major step toward competency this year despite losing two of their top three scorers to the portal. They’ve added a few of the best newcomers in the league around one of the most productive bigs in the conference, but time will tell how effectively that growth holds up in the rigors of Big Ten play.
