Gophers' 7-footer Liam Robbins and Michigan's 7-1 Hunter Dickinson meet for the second time this season Saturday at the Barn. Dickinson and Robbins are two of the top centers in the Big Ten, arguably the top league in college basketball for the position.
The Gophers men's basketball team is winless on the road this season, but lacking toughness and struggling against physicality have been major issues. Can the Gophers play more aggressive on offense and tougher defensively Sunday in the rematch vs. Iowa?
Gophers starting center Liam Robbins was limited with an injury in his last game, but he's expected to play Sunday against Iowa and All-American Luka Garza. The 7-foot Robbins leads the Big Ten in blocks this season.
The Gophers men's basketball team is undefeated at home, but it suffered both losses this season on the road when star guard Marcus Carr struggled. Carr and company can end their road woes Wednesday at No. 10 Michigan, but the program hasn't won there since 2011.
