A familiar feeling huh?

  • This is Minnesota’s sixth singe digit loss, and the third that was decided on the last play of the game or in overtime. I don’t know how things could get more frustrating at this point, but I’m sure we will soon find out.
  • It is hard to say how Al Nolen would have changed the outcome of the game. Kalin Lucas wouldn’t have such a good game, but Minnesota’s offense would have been worse.
  • Devoe Joseph is a whole new player the last two games. His 16 points, 7 rebounds, and 3 assist performance was easily his best all around game as a Gopher.
  • The Gophers were outscored 13-5 in the last six minutes. They also didn’t look inside over the last six minutes. I don’t know if they got too careful, ran out of gas, or what.
  • Michigan State made 7-11 three pointers in the second half. They aren’t the #6 team in the country for nothing.
  • This is the season of what could have been.
