    Default Number of Big Ten Conference Wins

    Now that we have seen most of the non-conference schedule, how do you feel about the state of the Gophers basketball team?

    How many total wins will the Gophers have in conference prior to the conference tournament?

    20 game schedule, currently 1-1 in conference

    7-8 is what I see,

    Win at Wisconsin could get us to 11... but we can't defend the three...

    Inability to impose their will vs inferior teams is troublesome

    I'm interested in seeing how Isaiah Washington matches up with Brad Davison. With Amir at point, I think we matchup well against sconnie.
    As for this year in conference, I think we win 9 or 10.

    I'm going with 10, maybe 11 if we can steal the game in Madison. If we play to our potential I think we only lose twice at home, one to Michigan and another loss to a team like Indiana or Purdue. That gives us 8 conference wins... we beat Rutgers, Illinois and Northwestern on the road to get us to 11.

    For reference, the average winning percentage of an NCAA tournament team is 73.5. Over the average of 31 games in a season, that’s a record of 23-8.

    Seven wins feels realistic, they should be able to win 12 with their talent.

    We can't make 3's or defend the 3, it would be unlikely to win more than 6 or 7 unless something dramatically changes on both fronts.

    I find it interesting nearly two-thirds of respondents expect 9-12 B1G wins this year.

    We've won nine or more B1G games only four times in the last 21 seasons.

    The most conference wins in that stretch was 11 in 2016-17.

    So a majority expect a banner year, at least when measured against the success of the last two decades. And a not inconsiderable group of fans wants the coach fired. The same coach who won 11 conference games two years ago.

    Hmmm.

    6 more which will result in a maybe for the NIT. Really hope I am wrong but I can't see many wins with no one able to hit the three.

    First year with 20 big ten games. 9 or 10 wins would be 0.500 winning percentage or below. Much less than a Banner year
