Heading into Sunday, the Gophers were hanging on the edge of the NCAA Tournament field after a loss @ Maryland on Friday night and a Seton Hall upset over Villanova on Saturday. If the Gophers want to make sure they lock in their bid to the NCAA Tournament, they again need to get to 20 wins

Pitino’s squad could make it into the dance with 19 wins but why leave it up to fate? Win one more game and you are in. No stress. No worries. With the Big Ten Tournament upon us, the Gophers (7-seed) will have their shot at that 20th victory in the 2nd Round on Wednesday vs Penn State (10-seed).

In the earlier meeting vs Penn State this season the Gophers squeaked out a 1-point victory.. You know Wednesday won’t be easy. It never is.
