Chart: The Gophers' big test in Big Ten play

  • Updated: December 29, 2012 - 9:54 PM
The Gophers are 12-1 and ranked No. 11 in the Associated Press poll heading into Monday's Big Ten opener against Michigan State. A variety of circumstances have contributed to a trend the Gophers would like to shake this season: a Big Ten drop-off after encouraging signs during nonconference play. A season-by-season look at the Gophers under coach Tubby Smith:

2007-08: 10-2 nonconference; 8-10 Big Ten; postseason: first-round NIT loss

2008-09: 12-0 nonconference; 9-9 Big Ten; postseason: first-round NCAA loss

2009-10: 9-3 nonconference; 9-9 Big Ten; postseason: first-round NCAA loss

2010-11: 11-1 nonconference; 6-12 Big Ten; no postseason play

2011-12: 12-1 nonconference; 6-12 Big Ten; postseason: lost in NIT title game
