What to Know

The Minnesota Golden Gophers' homestand continues as they prepare to take on the Arkansas-Pine Bluff Golden Lions at 8 p.m. ET Dec. 14 at Williams Arena. Neither of these teams found much success offensively their last time out, scoring well below their season averages.

On Sunday, Minnesota lost to the Mississippi State Bulldogs at home by a decisive 69-51 margin. A silver lining for the Golden Gophers was the play of forward Dawson Garcia, who had 20 points along with six boards.

Meanwhile, Arkansas-Pine Bluff was pulverized by the Texas Longhorns 88-43 this past Saturday. Guard Shaun Doss had a pretty forgettable game, playing for 34 minutes but putting up just eight points on 4-for-13 shooting.

Minnesota is the favorite in this one, with an expected 16.5-point margin of victory. Their home court has been no bettor's paradise, though, as they've failed to beat the spread in five of their six home games.

Minnesota is now 4-6 while Arkansas-Pine Bluff sits at 3-8. The Golden Gophers are 1-4 after losses this year, the Golden Lions 3-4.
