GAME DAY TID-BITS

• Minnesota closes out a stretch of three straight against ranked opponents, traveling to No. 16 Michigan in the Gophers' final road test of the year.
• The Gophers are 7-9 in Big Ten action, with a 2-6 mark away from Minneapolis in conference play.
• Michigan, then receiving votes in both polls, edged the Gophers, 63-60, on Jan. 2 at Williams Arena, in both teams' Big Ten openers.
• The Gophers have amassed a perfect 3-0 record against Top-25 ranked teams at the Barn this season, coming off Tuesday's win over #20/19 Iowa.
• Minnesota leads the league in steals per game (7.6), is third in free throw percentage (.746), and fourth in three-pointers made per game (7.1) and assists (14.0).
• The Gophers' offensive outburst Tuesday marked a number of highs. It was the most points (95) scored in a Big Ten game since a 95-67 win over Penn State on Feb. 3, 1993 (not including vacated games). Minnesota tied a season high with 11 made 3-pointers, and the 61.2 percent team field goal shooting was a season high, and the best since Jan. 22, 2011 (.634 at Michigan - 26-41).
