The Gophers game against Indiana at home has officially been slotted to be played on Sunday, Feb. 26 at noon.
Previously, the game -- which will be broadcasted live on ESPN -- was given a "wildcard" status by the league, and the Big Ten had been trying to determine whether it would be played on the 25th or the 26th.
The Gophers won in their only other matchup against Indiana this season, beating the Hoosiers 77-74 in their only victory over a ranked opponent this year.
This is Amelia Rayno's fifth season on the Gophers men's basketball beat. She learned college basketball in North Carolina (Go Tar Heels!), where fanhood is not an option. In 2010, she joined the Star Tribune after graduating from Boston's Emerson College, which sadly had no exciting D-I college hoops to latch onto. Amelia has also worked on the sports desk at the Boston Globe and interned at the Detroit News.
