Game Thread: Illinois at Minnesota 


Tip is at 5 and on the BTN. A big game for us, without a doubt. We could really use this one. We'll see which version of these inconsistent teams shows up tonight.

Bold prediction. Here is something that could change that, Rodney is not in the starting lineup. It's Dre, Coleman, Austin, Trevor, and Eliason.

Rodney may not play, he is questionable with a shoulder injury. Would be tough to have to play Elliott the whole game against a team that loves to stay outside and shoot from deep. Rodney's athleticism is a big advantage for Minnesota.

I have a gut feeling that Dre and Austin will have a pretty solid game.

Mbakwe scores on a strong move in the paint. Very solid start for him to establish himself down low.

Great feed from Elliott to Trevor for an easy layup makes the score 6-0 and brings the (surprisingly large) crowd to its feet.

Austin gets his second steal of the game and puts it for another easy 2. Gophers lead 8-0 but the Illini are fouled on the shot. Oto coming back into the game.

Ingram and Welch also in. So is Mo Walker. Dre is the only starter on the floor.

Dre hits a three. Kid is money from the outside this year. 11-2 lead for the Gophers.

Don't understand that. Why we're doing so well defensively with the starters, why bring in 4 new guys off the bench. Just bring in one or two to give guys a blow.

Mav banks in a shot as the shot clock expires. Gophers getting some good bounces thus far.

Welch went into the lane out of control and Illinois gets called for a charge.  Mbakwe, Austin and Coleman and Dre are back in.

Gophers get an offensive rebound and Austin makes the most of it, draining a three.

Griffey hits a three to make it 22-14 Gophers. Austin playing well, already has 9.
