The Gophers basketball team will have starting center Liam Robbins healthy enough to battle Sunday against Iowa's standout big man Luka Garza.

They'll need him. Garza leads the nation with 27 points per game this season.

Gophers coach Richard Pitino said Saturday that Robbins is expected to play after being slowed with a leg injury in Wednesday's 82-57 loss at Michigan.

"He was good [Friday] in practice," Pitino said. "He seems Ok. I don't think it was too big of a deal. Obviously, we were just down and I didn't want to throw him back in there."

The 7-foot junior was not in foul trouble against the Wolverines, but Robbins tied a season-low with five points on 2-for-9 shooting, while playing only nine minutes in the second half. Michigan 7-footer Hunter Dickinson had 28 points.


Go Gophers!!
