NCAA Basketball Bracketology: Minnesota Has Work To Do

With an 0-4 start to Big Ten play, the Minnesota Golden Gophers find themselves on the outside looking in when it comes to the NCAA Tournament. SB Nation's Chris Dobbertean published his most recent bracketology on Monday morning, and the news was not good for the Gophers.

Eight Big Ten teams were in this week's bracketology, but Minnesota was one of the four teams, along with Iowa, Penn State, and Nebraska, on the outside looking in. That is not a surprise, considering that Minnesota's best victories have come over teams among the last eight out in Indiana State and Virginia Tech.

The Golden Gophers have missed on several chances to gain a quality win as well. Of their five losses, four of them (Dayton, Purdue, Michigan, and Illinois) are to teams that are solidly in the NCAA Tournament field so far. Minnesota has an excellent chance to add to its resume this week when it travels to Indiana on Thursday.
