Gophers blow out Penn State in Big Ten tournament opener

Full story: TwinCities.com
The Gophers were a sixth seed. Penn State was an 11th seed. So why was it so surprising that the higher seed took a 20-point lead to start the second half Thursday in the opening round of the Big Ten Conference men's basketball tournament? It was because the scrappy Nittany Lions were a popular pick for an upset. Full Story

My guess would be that there will be two teams showing up for the game tonight and it will depend on how both play against one another that will determine the outcome, not just how our guys play.

I have been Westbrook bashing all season long and will only give him a slight reprieve, not that he cares,for his performance last night. He was relatively patient offensively, for him, and an absolute juggarnaut defensively. He didn't have and fouls, that i remember, 40 feet from the hoop and was all over Battle. Devoe has done a fabulous job playing out of postition at the point. Very comfortable with the ball in his hands now and Iverson is becoming a man. Still think it'll be very difficult to pull this game out but the team is showing they haven't wasted the entire season. There's been some growth.

Yep, nothing says respect like beating the absolutely worst team in the conference. You are trying WAY too hard.

How about beating the best team? Is that OK??? Oh, I forgot MSU was missing one player while we were only missing three. My bad.
