Mbakwe is really starting to take advantage of being 3 years older than most of the Big 10. He hit some tough shots today to create some and one opportunities.
Mbakwe is definitely starting to get his legs back and is getting better and better each week. He can be a man amongst boys when healthy.

This was a great win but I don't think Illinois is as good as their ranking right now, I actually wouldn't be surprised if they finish outside the top 25 after playing the rest of their conference schedule. I'm not saying that as a result of this game either, I thought it before they played. That being said, it was still a tough road win and I think this Gopher team is for real.
