Gophers seeking 10th win against Omaha

The Gophers are back on the court after a week off for finals to face Nebraska-Omaha of the Summit League at Williams Arena on Friday night.

Coming off a win against South Dakota State on Dec. 10, Minnesota will play the second to last non-conference game before opening the Big Ten season against Michigan at home on Jan. 2.

Minnesota is 63-1 all-time against Summit League opponents, with their only loss coming in 1936 against North Dakota State (the score was 33-29). Despite the history, it’ll be the first time the Gophers will face Omaha.

Nebraska is 8-3 this season and is led by junior guard CJ Carter, who’s averaging a cool 15.1 points per game.

The Mavericks are scoring more than 84 points per game and narrowly lost to Drake and Iowa this year.

The Gophers will definitely have their work cut out for them when the two teams face off at 8 p.m. CT.

BTN will have the broadcast while 1500 ESPN will call it on the radio.
