With a platoon of offensive weapons, the Gophers have established themselves as a team not to be underestimated. While they plan on contending in the Big Ten for months to come, they’ll be put to the test early on. Considering that the conference has emerged as one of the deepest in college basketball, it won’t be easy for the Gophers to maintain their current top-10 status.
Against a team like Indiana, success on the college basketball moneyline will be especially tough.
Although the Hoosiers fell to unranked rival Butler in December, they’ve been otherwise as dominant as advertised over the summer. Sophomore big man Cody Zeller might not strike fear in the hearts of NBA big men just yet, but is proving to be a more than capable blue chip leader for the iconic program.
Weigh in on the beginning of a long ride in the gritty Big Ten Ccnference today.
