Several questions faced the Minnesota Golden Gopher basketball team as they entered Big Ten conference play. How would they handle the relative increased level of competition? Would they play up to their opponent after playing down so often in the non-conference season? How would the team look with both Al Nolen and Devoe Joseph healthy [...]

The Gophers will enter Big Ten play with an 11-1 record, and will likely enter Big Ten play as the second highest ranked Big Ten team after beating South Dakota State on Christmas Eve Eve.

Tubby Smith announced late Thursday night that guard Devoe Joseph has been suspended indefinitely for a situation that will “take more than a few weeks to resolve.” The reason for the suspension is pure speculation at this point, but one fact is certain: the Gophers will be without one of their expected leading scorers for [...]

Consider the second of two exhibition games to be just a practice and the near-upset in last night’s matchup between Minnesota and the Division II powerhouse Winona State becomes a bit easier to swallow. It would be simple enough to look back on the game and pick apart what went wrong, what the Gophers could [...]

Another incredibly bizarre dance team performance, introductions from all sides, excessive Colton Iverson hip gyrations, a motorcycle, a four man three point shooting contest, a four man dunk contests, a twenty minute running time scrimmage, and poof it was all over. Maybe I am getting too old to enjoy much that happens after 11 pm [...]

A ten point half time lead was surprising. A seemingly insurmountable 19 point lead with just over seven minutes left was shocking. The final score, a 62-60 victory for the Gophers was only unexpected because the Gophers won. Assembly Hall has been a house of horrors for the Gophers for decades. The last win at [...]

I hope you’ll excuse me for not delving into the finer details of Minnesota’s latest blown lead and missed buzzer beater.
