Notable: This will be Ohio State’s first game without freshman guard Luther Muhammad, who suffered a dislocated left shoulder on Wednesday against Syracuse. … A ranked Ohio State team (the Buckeyes are No. 16) has never lost at home to an unranked Minnesota team. … After beating Oklahoma State 83-76 on Friday, the Golden Gophers are playing on one day of prep for the only time this season.
