So far I see 2-23Gophers schedule to date. Schedule will have minimum of 29 regular-season games, maximum of 31. I haven't seen confirmation of Gavitt Games participation, so for now not including that on the schedule. If Gophers do participate, it's pretty much guaranteed to be a home game.
Note: 2 years ago the ACC Challenge pairings were announced May 29, and the Gavitt Games pairings were released June 6.

If the current roster doesn’t change, yes. We will add some games (hopefully against bad teams) have but I honestly think the ceiling for the team is 10-11 wins.No B10 team has had close to that poor of a record in the last 19 years. I understand the hole the Gophers are in right now, but do you really think they'll be that bad?
I'll say 6-5 non-conference.From Marcus:

Does the CIT have a selection committee?
I’d guess 7-4 looking at it
Yeah but if two guys roll an ankle we don’t have a scholarship substituteI don't think they'll be that bad in conference. Pitino's historically awful 2015-16 team won two games in conference and I think would have won a couple more had Mason, McBrayer, and Dorsey not been suspended and Joey King had not been injured afterward. I think the guards on this team will be better shooters collectively than the guards on that team. Mason shot 38.9% that year, Morris shot 38.9% (until he got kicked off the team), Dorsey shot 36%, McBrayer shot 32.6%, and Ahmad Gilbert shot 30.4%.
Obviously, Johnson needs to add a couple of big men and he's trying. Freshman Jordan Murphy emerged as one of the team's best players that year. I'm guessing the junior Battle can probably do about as well as the freshman Murphy and Ihnen can do at least as well as Buggs (Steffon Mitchell certainly would if he comes). Treyton Thompson won't have Bakary's size but I suspect he is more skilled.
