Minnesota is coming off a 63-60 loss Tuesday at No. 14 Wisconsin, a game that saw them turn the ball over 20 times. Ta’Lon Cooper led the Gophers with 16 points.

Johnson addressed the turnovers on Friday, in addition to the positivity rebounding, Dawson Garcia’s struggles from 3-point range, and hosting alumni this weekend.
