Sep 05, · Men's Basketball | 9/5/ PM. Story Links. Schedule; Schedule; Season Ticket Information; Minnesota head men's basketball coach Richard Pitino announced the non-conference schedule Thursday, in conjunction with the Big Ten Conference's game time and television designations. The Gophers will feature 16 games at Williams Arena while facing .
The noise the fans provided has changed momentum. The University of Minnesota canceled afternoon classes today and for all of tomorrow plus schools throughout Minnesota have been cancelled through Wednesday because of the weather. Pitino wants fans in the stands on Wednesday but also asked them to be careful. Minnesota played their first game of the season without freshman Daniel Oturu on Sunday defeating Iowa Eric Curry played an excellent all around game and Matz Stockman came off the bench to give 16 solid low post minutes.
Did they miss Oturu? Sure, but the experience of Curry and Stockman filled in well. The shoulder he hurt in practice was the not the shoulder Daniel had surgery on over the summer. Illinois is this year with a record in the Big Ten. They have two wins against major conference programs this year: Minnesota and last Saturday against nationally ranked Maryland. Not bad, but on a neutral floor.
Illinois won the rebound battle limiting Jordan Murphy to 24 minutes and only six shots and three boards. Meanwhile Illinois made half of their 16 triples and completed 37 of 66 shots on their homecourt. Freshman Ayo Dosunmu scored 23 points on 9 of 13 shooting and fellow frosh Giorgi Bezhanishvili was nearly unstoppable with 20 points and eight boards on 8 of 12 shooting.
Bezhanishvili has been an 11 point, 5 board a game guy this year so his game versus the Gophers was one of his best all year. Ayo, Giorgi, and Trent Frazier a sophomore make up the only leading scoring trio in the bIg Ten that are all underclassmen.
Against the third toughest schedule played in the nation Illinois is and forcing turnovers on In their recent win over Maryland, the maturing Illinois defense forced 15 second half turnovers and had 27 fast break points. Freshman Tevian Jones scored 18 points in 22 minutes in that contest. In addition to being the all time Minnesota leader in rebounding, double-doubles, and free throws attempted, Jordan is quickly moving up on the all time scoring chart 9th right now.
Murphy is also 20 made free throws from being the all time leader in that category and 29 blocks would push him into the top ten of that category. Dupree is shooting 8 of 27 the last four games.
The good thing for Minnesota is that Amir Coffey and Gabe Kalscheur have both come out of shooting slumps. The second leading scorer for Illinois is sophomore Trent Frazier and he was too quick for Minnesota on both ends in Champaign. Between his ball pressure of the Gopher players and his quick first step Frazier is exactly the type of guard that Minnesota has had trouble with. Minnesota was able to get several open looks in the first half against Illinois through some quality possessions of ball movement that stopped when frustration waved in heavily but only in the first half.
The ball never seemed to move in the second half as the Illini defense suffocated the Gophers. That will not change this evening. Frazier, Dosunmu, and company will be that same defensive team.
The Gophers will need Kalscheur, Coffey, McBrayer, and whomever comes off the bench if Pitino uses the bench, you never can be sure to make open shots. And he will especially need players that move the ball on the floor.
Illinois swarms to the dribble attack and guards the passing lanes heavily, but ball movement will lead to post touches and open jumpers. Inside Giorgi outplayed every Gopher that Richard Pitino put on the floor. Oturu is questionable this evening so it will be up to Curry and Stockman to try and slow Giorgi. Also inside, the Gophers need Murphy to avoid full trouble. This could be one of the odder games in Gopher history. Asking people to drive in terrible road conditions followed by having to walk several blocks in temperatures that are around below with wind chill might be too much.
The Gophers fans that will be there will provide an environment but will there be enough? And the basketball team itself, can they avenge an embarrassing loss?
This is that same Illinois team that has a guard the Gophers have trouble with speedy Frazier , a big that the Gophers cant move Giorgi , a top frosh Ayo , and a team defensive style that Minnesota played right into the hands of. But the make-up of the contest still feels like a toss-up.
Jordan Murphy will stay hot and Amir Coffey could explode, Gophers win by six.
