Gameday: Gophers at Iowa

  • Updated: February 13, 2011 - 12:23 AM

Preview: The Gophers (16-8, 5-7 Big Ten) will try to end their first four-game losing streak under coach Tubby Smith when they travel to Iowa City to play the Hawkeyes (10-14, 3-9), who have won two of their past three.

The Gophers will win because ... They're hungrier than ever. They know their NCAA tournament hopes are slipping away. And they already have beaten the Hawkeyes once this season. Ralph Sampson III (11.1 points, 5.7 rebounds per game) has played well in recent outings.

The Gophers will lose because ... They're playing a hungry Hawkeyes team that took Wisconsin to overtime on Wednesday. Freshman Melsah Basabe is a young star. He is averaging 10.8 points and 7.1 rebounds per game.
