The Minnesota men's basketball team finds itself on the bubble. A victory over visiting No. 7 Michigan on Thursday would greatly enhance the Golden Gophers' NCAA Tournament resume.
A four-game losing streak put Minnesota in a precarious spot. An 84-63 win over Indiana at Williams Arena on Saturday gave the Gophers a much-needed boost, and they remain at home for a rematch with the Wolverines.
Minnesota rallied from 13 points down in the final 9:12 and 10 down in the final 4:54 during the first meeting in Ann Arbor on Jan. 22, only to lose 59-57 on Charles Matthews' buzzer-beating jumper off an offensive rebound.
