Northwestern vs. Minnesota basketball game thread

Northwestern takes on the No. 12 Minnesota Golden Gophers. Will it be closer than last time? Umm... less close? Come talk to us about it!

Northwestern! Minnesota! GOLD! HUGE PILES OF GOLD, TONS OF GOLD, SHAPED LIKE TINY LITTLE GOPHERS.

Wait, I'm being told they're not actually made out of gold. They're basketball players, and combined, they're the 12th best team in the country. That's high! But they were higher about two-ish weeks ago, when they burnt the gosh-darn poop out of Northwestern is a pretttttty hideous game. But this one's at home! Perhaps it will go better? Perhaps it won't. A win here would be super-huge and sorta put Northwestern's season back on track, but it's not hyper-likely, so I feel like Northwestern fans are hoping for a good job and/or a good effort from Northwestern and not another blowout. But hey - let's get them back for the Big Ten tourney last year.

Talk to us about it, and tell us your favorite mammals to craft in the shape of gold and/or make small statues and then gild. Or just talk about basketball - that's cool too.

Go Cats and stuff!
