Gophers men's Game Day

7 P.M. VS. COASTAL CAROLINA

WILLIAMS ARENA • No TV, 1500-AM

Gophers at a glance: After igniting on a 19-0 run to finish strong at Richmond after struggling for most of the second half, the Gophers seem to have a renewed energy. They have two more games at home, including Wofford on Thursday, before embarking to the Maui Invitational and an opening matchup against Syracuse. G Andre Hollins was phenomenal once again in Saturday’s victory over the Spiders, recording 26 points and seven rebounds. He leads the Gophers with an average of 22.7 points per game. … G Austin Hollins had a second consecutive double-double (and second of his career), gathering 11 rebounds to go with 11 points. … C Mo Walker again will be on the bench as he serves the fourth game of a six-game suspension for violating university policy.

Coastal Carolina at a glance: The Chanticleers from Conway, S.C., are coming off a heartbreaker loss to Ole Miss. Carolina is 1-2 but hasn’t had the easiest schedule — starting off the year with Akron, one of the best teams in the Mid-American Conference. Things won’t get much easier for the turnover-prone Chanticleers as they head to Minneapolis. Coastal Carolina has been losing the ball an average of 14.3 times a game, something the Gophers surely will try to exploit. G Elijah Wilson leads the team with 15 points and 4.7 rebounds a game, and four players average at least five rebounds.
