Carr is going to get his 20 points on like a billion shots. It's Robbins I'm worried about. He has elevated his game since the last time we saw them.
I agree with this. However, don't underestimate Johnson. We cannot let him get hot from 3.

Edit: Sorry, didn't see some posts after my reply making the same point.

Still all about effort. Almost shocking to see how much we give up effort-wise at times. Also, lineups that dont have at least one of Kofi or Ayo need to stop (with some minor exceptions of foul control or other similar rarities).

I also feel like this team tends to lack focus. I actually think we get some great looks when we actually play our half court offense. I don't mind guys like Miller and Frazier chucking up 3s if they get decent looks.

This game is beyond winnable. Play focus and determined and we win with ease. Sadly, that's been easier said than done this year.

Are yall forgetting we beat this team by 30 in December? Some of you are making it seem like we should be dogs. We've won 6 in a row, we just beat Iowa and Wisconsin. Some of yall put too much emphasis on home court. Easy #roadkill.

Normally I agree but Minnesota's performance at home vs road is undeniably different. We should be favorites but if we play like we have the last two games we'll take a loss. We need the Wisconsin/Iowa Illini not the Northwestern/Nebraska Illini.

Man if Maryland can go in there and win easily, so can we. There is no reason we should be expecting a loss.

True, Maryland won @Minn. It certainly shows that it can be done. I suppose that's half of the relevant information.

The other half is a list of who has lost @Minn:

Iowa
MSU
OSU
Michigan
Nebraska
Purdue

I wonder how many of them were thinking they could go in there and win easily.

Paducah, Ky
I was living in Paducah when that happened. It was nutty.
I lived in Reidland at that time frame and was within walking distance to Food Giant and the Fire dept was where I charged my phone....
Never want to relive anything resembling that experience , so I feel for all now who are without power in cold weather......
