The Gophers (14-8, 3-6 in the Big Ten) will get a week off following Tuesday's game. Forward Amir Coffey returned for Saturday's loss vs. Ohio State after missing five games with a shoulder injury. Pitino said that he didn't practice on Monday, but should be ok to play vs. the Wildcats. Guard Dupree McBrayer (foot) is still not practicing either.
