Gophers at a glance: Minnesota (13-9, 2-6) heads to Ann Arbor, Mich., following back-to-back lopsided losses at No. 13 Penn State and at home against Iowa. The Gophers struggled against the Hawkeyes’ zone defense, shooting 33.8 percent and committing 18 turnovers. The 64-56 final score didn’t indicate the way Iowa controlled the game. Minnesota trailed by 18 points with less than two minutes left. … Shayne Mullaney returned to the lineup Wednesday against the Hawkeyes after missing the Penn State game with concussion-like symptoms. The sophomore guard led Minnesota with 13 points and seven assists. … Rachel Banham scored just nine points against Iowa on 3-for-12 shooting, but the Big Ten’s leading scorer has averaged 30 points in two previous games against the Wolverines.

Wolverines at a glance: Michigan (14-7, 5-3) is also looking to rebound after a blowout loss, 84-51 at Nebraska on Wednesday. Add in a loss Jan. 23 to Ohio State, and the Wolverines have lost two out of their past three. … Michigan has four players averaging double digits in scoring, led by junior Shannon Smith’s 14.4 points per game and freshman Siera Thompson’s 13.3. … Today’s matchup features the top conference teams in overall three-point shooting. Minnesota leads the league with a 41.1 percent clip behind the arc, Michigan shoots 39.4 percent.
