    I'm pumped for this game. Bringing my 4 1/2 year old nephew. He loves basketball so hoping we last the whole game!

    ESPN isn't the only mock draft board and it isn't even the most consulted one. Jaylen Smith is also projected first rounder on multiple boards.

    Might be a late arriving crowd with the 6:00 start.

    This ain't f&cking Miami. Minnesotans arrive on time and cheer to the last second.

I don't see us with a rebound edge against Maryland. Maryland has a higher rebound margin per game than us and their two big men are shown as first rounders on a number of mock draft boards. Like Oturu, Jalen Smith is a freshman but he's more skilled than Oturu although Oturu appears a little thicker and stronger. Some factors that may work in our favor:

    1) they haven't gone to the line nearly as often as us;
    2) they actually have a worse turnover margin than us;
    3) they're less experienced than us (four or five freshmen play significant minutes and only one player above a soph plays significant minutes);
    4) they've played a weaker schedule than us.
    Think you pretty much nailed it. We'll have play well to win, but so will they.
