Minnesota has performed much better than anyone was expecting coming into the year, but the Gophers didn’t look great in their last outing on the road losing to Michigan State by a final of 47-65. Minnesota is still putting together a respectable resume standing 15-3 overall and 3-2 in the Big Ten, but the Gophers will be knocked come Selection Sunday for their home heavy nonconference slate. Minnesota has shown they can come through on the road with recent road wins coming against Purdue and Northwestern in Big Ten play. The Gophers have shown strengths on both sides of the ball ranking 69th in the nation in total defense and 136th in scoring average.

Penn State has some very intriguing young talent and making a push to the NIT would be a step in the right direction for this developing squad this season. Penn State is better than their 10-7 overall record might suggest as the Nittany Lions can compete with almost anyone in the Big Ten when playing up to their ceiling. Penn State looked great in their last outing coming through at The Palestra beating Michigan State by a final of 72-63. The Nittany Lions have shown they can compete with the tougher opponents they’ve faced this season and this will be another great test at home for this improving team. Penn State has an impressive 5 players averaging in double figures scoring with veteran guard Shep Garner leading the way averaging 12.8 points per game.

Minnesota didn’t look great in their last outing on the road against Michigan State and that’s the second defeat the Golden Gophers have taken to the Spartans this season. This is the same MSU squad that had their issues with Penn State in what was a great resume building win for the Nittany Lions. In what should be a competitive matchup we like the home team with the points as the best bet.

    Minnesota loving their national ranking (#24) 15-3 and 3-2 conference -- PENN State at home 10-7 and 2-2 conference -- nearly a pick-em game and I like the Golden Gophers in what could be a 4-6 point game --

    This game smells like fish run away is what I say but a shot inn the dark I'll take the golden gopher's inn a squeaker Minny 71 Lions 68 Just a wild guess
