2019 Big Ten Tournament: Minnesota vs. Purdue Game Thread

Take 3!

NCAA Basketball: Purdue at Minnesota Harrison Barden-USA TODAY Sports

Didn’t we just see these guys? When we last saw Minnesota they were swarming the floor after upsetting our Boilers and denying us an outright Big Ten championship. now we get them in the Big Ten Tournament. This game concerns me because out of everyone, Minnesota might have played us the best in Mackey. Of course, they only beat us by 4 in Minneapolis with Carsen Edwards, Matt Haarms, and Trevion Williams all playing poorly.
