Go Gophs, it will be wonderful to see a game again. Now if the Big Ten Network would just step up the production to network standards all would be good. The Gophs need this win. A stumble would be disastrous going into a break. We have had some difficulty defendling the three pointer. That is a must in this game. The North Dakotans will win if they are able to hit their threes. Ski U Mah

NDSU doesn't have anyone over 6'9", so to try for mismatch on height and to keep quick on defense, expect four-set by MN (ok, what else has Smith ever used? Hey - he has changed some other bad habits lately, so there is hope he will someday add a modern layer inside). The game will be a test for MN's 3's defense - and MN had better stay focused. NDSU played Indiana, and while IN is more of a "flex center" (double look) team, NDSU has already seen what good 3's defense was, and will not be so easily shaken this time. Watch for the extra-extra pass from NDSU, and them working for mismatches on Mbwake on the perimeter... Look to quicker MN to at least 2-press full court, and being taller, rely on offensive rebounds for scoring. Because NDSU shoots a lot of threes, they might even beat MN on rebounds on offense - Good game for MN to have hands above the rim and outside the cylinder on the rebounds.
