The Gophers wrap up the regular season with a game at Purdue on Saturday. A win would give them a 9-9 Big Ten are a likley spot in the NCAA tournament. A loss will give them an 8-10 record in the conference and a lot closer to being on the bubble.

Head coach Tubby Smith reportedly has plans to go back to the original starting lineup of Andre Hollins, Austin Hollins, Joe Coleman, Rodney Williams and Trevor Mbakwe. Smith had started Julian Welch and Andre Ingram the last two games.

Smith is hoping Austin Hollins can find a way to start hitting shots again. Smith says Hollins hasn't shot well for about ten games, and when he struggles the Gophers struggle.
