Most important thing is our shooting must be good. Pretty impossible to win if we shoot similarly to our previous road games. If we shoot well we should have chance.

Robbins needs to stay out of foul trouble...if Michigan focuses on shutting down Carr like Ohio St did we will need to get the ball inside to someone who can then go to work or dish out. If we're dishing out we need to hit some 3s
Yes. In last coach show pitino talked about how important it is to foul without fouling. In other words be physical without fouling. Will be significant if Roberts or Dickerson get into foul trouble tonight. Hopefully the refs dont become the story by making phantom foul calls.

The Gophers have a shot in this one. I think we match up well with Michigan. They probably have the shortest starting backcourt in all of the Big Ten (Smith and Brooks). Advantage Marcus Carr. I feel like Gach and Johnson/Ihnen can make Wagner and Livers uncomfortable tonight. I think it will be close.

Go Gophers!
Sounds like quite the dynamic duo ;)

Is this the 3rd road game against a top 10 team at the time of game?

First road game and we pretty much stunk it up at Wisky, got out coached, outplayed and W played the type of game the program is designed. RP did nothing to try to alter W's game plan and our guys didn't perform and adjust. A repeat can not happen.

RP has to keep his best defenders on the floor and demand to keep our offense on the move and feed the post. Of course our shooters must turn into scorers.

If the team can somehow pull off a W at Mich, then I am confident that they have what it takes to finish in the top 5 in the BIG.

Mich-82
Gophers-70

But the way the Gophers have played since the Illinois game I am concerned about the rematch up there.

Carr with 3 guys on him hits the game winner.

I think we match up pretty well with MI. I find this prediction encouraging from KenPom

Sportsbooks all have MI -8 and o/u 148.5. Appears to be some value on taking the Gophers/over.
Generally, the betting lines are are nearly identical to Kenpom.

Have the Gophers on the money line, have the Gophers and the points and have the over.

Robbins starts every game with a three in the first few minutes.

On pace for a 40-40 slug fest. The offense is not working. Try something else.

2 airballed 3s in the first 4 minutes. Why do they keep taking those shots?

Some Mashburn to penetrate and take advantage of the middle would be good. It can't be Robbins or a chucked 3.
