Game VS. Southern Illinois University

Quick Game Recap: The Gophers got their sixth win of the season in a low scoring 57-45 game against the Salukis of Southern Illinois. Despite the gophers never feeling worried about the outcome, Minnesota didn't make it very difficult for SUI to keep it close throughout most of the first half. The Gophers were a dismal 3 for 10 from the Free Throw line in the first half, which really shows how the lack of in-game experience is affecting the first year players. They did pick it up in the second half, shooting a much improved 9 of 12. No single player filled up the box score, but the starting five played as a well meshed unit, and each starter had 8 or more points, with Coffey, McBrayer, and Mason all in double digits. On The Numbers: Here's how the starters ranked in Pythagorean Win Shares, a statistic we at Minnesota SSA have been tweaking and working with in order to optimize it to all sports. DUPREE McBRAYER - 26.67% AMIR COFFEY - 26.67% NATE MASON - 15.98% JORDAN M
