The Minnesota Gophers are 8-1 and find themselves getting some attention for a possible bid to the Big Dance next spring.
While there's no question Coffey has been the biggest game-changer for the Gophers, is he the best Freshman in the Big Ten?
That's a tough question to answer this early, but here's a quick look at some of his competition:
Miles Bridges - Michigan State
Bridges is probably the best-known of the Michigan State freshmen.
He has only played in 8 of the Spartans 10 games but he's been a force in East Lansing. The 6-foot-7 guard/forward is averaging 16.6 points and 8.8 rebounds per game.
Bridges also one of the better three-point shooters on the Spartans roster, knocking down 39 percent of his shots behind the arc. He also has 12 blocks in those eight games.
Nick Ward - Michigan State
Ward is a 6-foot-8 inch freshman, who averages 12.1 points and 6.2 rebounds per game. He also has been big inside with a team-leading 16 blocks.
Jordan Bohannon – Iowa
Bohannon specializes in the three-pointer. 23 of his 26 field goals have come from behind the arc, where the 6-foot guard shoots nearly 37 percent.
Bohannon is averaging 8.4 points per game and has a team leading 47 assists.
Tony Carr – Penn State
Carr has played well during Penn State's first 10 games of 2016-17. The 6-foot-3 guard has done it all. He averages 11.0 points and 4.9 rebounds per game.
He also leads Penn State with 37 assists.
