MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (KNSI) Eighth-ranked Minnesota will have that lofty national ranking tested this week.

The Gophers play at No. 12 Illinois on Wednesday and No. 5 Indiana on Saturday, after winning their first two Big Ten games at home.

Coach Tubby Smith said Tuesday that he wouldn't place extra emphasis on these contests. Smith says every game is important, whether for the development of the program, the development of the players or maintaining the momentum of this 14-1 start.

After this trip, the Gophers have a game against No. 2 Michigan waiting for them at home on Jan. 17.
