MINNESOTA: Last season: 15-17, lost to Rutgers in first round of Big Ten Tournament.
Nickname: Golden Gophers.
Coach: Richard Pitino.
Conference: Big Ten.
Who's gone: Point guard Nate Mason (graduated), center Reggie Lynch (overseas), backup shooting guard Jamir Harris (transferred), backup forward Davonte Fitzgerald (transferred), backup forward Bakary Konate (graduated), backup forward Gaston Diedhiou (graduated).
Who's back: Forward Jordan Murphy, who was named to the 20-player preseason All-Big Ten team, is the senior standout coming off career-best averages of 16.8 points and 11.3 rebounds per game. ... Starting forwards Amir Coffey (shoulder) and Eric Curry (knee) are healthy and primed for breakout years, after Coffey was limited to 18 games and Curry was out for the whole season. ... Point guard Isaiah Washington had a rocky freshman year, shooting just 24.1 percent from 3-point range. ... Shooting guard Dupree McBrayer gritted out an injury-influenced junior season, averaging 9.4 points per game. ... Forward Michael Hurt returns in a reserve role.
Who's new: Shooting guard Brock Stull is a fifth-year graduate transfer from Milwaukee who was the second-leading scorer for the Panthers last season. ... The three incoming freshmen are all from Minnesota, shooting guard Gabe Kalscheur, forward Jarvis Omersa and center Daniel Oturu. The 6-foot-10 Oturu was a consensus four-star recruit who helped lead Cretin-Derham Hall High School to the Class 4A state championship. ... Center Matz Stockman, a 7-foot native of Norway who sat out last season after transferring from Louisville, played three years for the Cardinals. ... Point guard Marcus Carr is another transfer who played one year at Pittsburgh but the NCAA has yet to rule on whether he'll be able to play immediately or have to redshirt this season.
The Skinny: Pitino's sixth year with the Gophers begins with a fresh start after the injury-ruined 2017-18 season that also included a midseason suspension of Lynch for alleged sexual assault. Mason's leadership and scoring touch at both the rim and from 3-point range will be dearly missed, with the erratic-but-exciting Washington in line to take over as the primary ball-handler. Curry and Oturu ought to help take some of the burden off Murphy around the basket. The Gophers could be one of the conference's surprises like two seasons ago when they reached their only NCAA Tournament under Pitino.
Expectations: Oddsmakers have Minnesota as a 200-1 long shot to win the NCAA Tournament. The Final Four is at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, less than 2 miles from campus. The Gophers were picked to finish ninth out of 14 teams in a preseason Big Ten media poll.
MICHIGAN ST: Last season: 30-5, won Big Ten title and lost in second round of NCAA Tournament.
Nickname: Spartans.
Coach: Tom Izzo.
Conference: Big Ten.
Who's gone: Miles Bridges (NBA), Jaren Jackson (NBA), Tum Tum Nairn, Gavin Schilling, Ben Carter.
Who's back: Nick Ward entered his name in the NBA draft before deciding to stay in school for his junior season. The 6-foot-9, 245-pound forward ranked third on the team last season with 12.4 points and first with 7.1 rebounds. Junior point guard Cassius Winston trailed only Bridges in scoring, averaging 12.6 points a game, made a Big Ten-best 49.7 percent of his 3-point shots and had a team-high 6.9 assists per game. Junior shooting guard Joshua Langford averaged 11.7 points and showed the potential to do more, including his 23-point performance against North Carolina.
Who's new: Hall of Fame coach Tom Izzo said at least two freshmen will play right away: Aaron Henry, a 6-6, 210-pound forward, and Foster Loyer, a 6-foot point guard.
The Skinny: The Spartans are No. 10 in the preseason poll because they have a lot of experience, which they hope will help the program advance past the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2015 when Izzo reached his seventh Final Four.
Expectations: Las Vegas oddsmakers have Michigan State as a 35-1 shot win the NCAA Tournament, odds that are tied with rival Michigan and trail 11 schools.
Familiar foes Michigan State, Minnesota meet in second round

DES MOINES, Iowa -- Less than a week after spending three straight days squaring off with Big Ten teams, No. 2 Michigan State will see a familiar face in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

That's because the Spartans, a 76-65 winner over No. 15 Bradley in the East Region on Thursday, will face No. 10 Minnesota in the second round on Saturday at Wells Fargo Arena.

"It'll be a grind, for sure," Michigan State junior guard Cassius Winston said. "This will be the longest Big Ten season ever, for sure. We're excited to play, and to advance, and I'm sure they are too."

Minnesota, which knocked off No. 7 Louisville, 86-76, on Thursday, didn't have the benefit of knowing its opponent until later in the day, but just advancing is a big deal for the Golden Gophers.

The victory over Louisville was the first tournament win for Minnesota (22-13) since 2013 after not having an official NCAA Tournament victory since 1990. So reaching the second round was a victory in itself.

"Obviously means a lot to us and it means a lot to our state and our fans and our program as well," senior Jordan Murphy said. "So, it's really significant to us, been in this position two years ago where we lost and now just being able to redeem that loss and win and keep moving and advancing and then going into the next game with a good mindset I think it's a pretty positive thing."

Michigan State (29-6) and Minnesota played just once in the regular season, a 79-55 victory at home for the Spartans in early February. Michigan State ended a three-game skid that day as Nick Ward scored 22 points and grabbed nine rebounds while shooting 9-for-14 from the field.

Ward broke his hand two games later and missed five games before returning for the Big Ten Tournament. Reintegrating Ward back in the lineup has been tough but seeing a bigger Minnesota team could help.

"We wanted to get Nick Ward more minutes, and we got him some," Michigan State coach Tom Izzo said. "But because of some defense coverage that made it harder. He's just not quite there yet, not all his fault, a little bit ours. He was productive getting to the free-throw line and scoring a bucket and getting five rebounds. So I thought we got a little more out of him.

"Now we're going to play a team that has a couple bigs, that's more of a conventional team."

Gabe Kalscheur scored 17 in the last meeting, but he didn't get much help as Murphy was limited to five points and Amir Coffey had four. In the win over Louisville, the trio led the attack as Kalscheur scored 24 while Murphy and Coffey scored 18 each.

Minnesota also made 11 3-pointers against Louisville, its second-best effort of the season thanks to the support of a partisan crowd as the Gophers' campus is about a three-and-a-half hour drive from the arena.

"The crowd was awesome. The crowd was absolutely awesome," Minnesota coach Richard Pitino said on Thursday. "When I meet people, I try to explain to them about Minnesota and how much pride our fans have, not just for men's basketball but for the University. ... That crowd carried us. It was a big-time performance from them and hopefully we see them in a couple days as well."
