The post-Maui Invitational feeling around Gopher Nation could probably be characterized as optimistically disappointed. That is, after a near upset over Syracuse, a blowout at the hands of Arkansas and a near embarrassment against Chaminade, the Gophers had regressed from an inspiring squad begging to be taken seriously to one that barely got out the […]

There is no such thing as a “must win” November college basketball game, but there can be very important games, especially in terms of post-season positioning. Thanks to a disappointing performance in the Maui Invitational, the Golden Gophers have a very important game against Florida State Seminoles as part of the Big Ten – ACC challenge on Tuesday evening. A win won’t put them in the NCAA tournament, but a loss would all but necessitate a nine win Big Ten season to play in the tournament that matters in March. The Gophers haven’t won 9 Big Ten games since 2010.

The Gophers have certainly been through the ringer over the last week. They mercifully finished a string of games featuring Duke, Memphis, Stanford, and Florida State and showed perhaps their true 2012-13 colors, emerging 3-1 in the brutal four game stretch with their latest win over the Seminoles in a true road game in Tallahassee. In […]

Thanks to their strong performance in the Bahamas and a few foibles by previously ranked teams, the Golden Gophers will enter their Big Ten-ACC challenge game against Florida State Seminoles ranked 21st in the Associate Press poll. While the ranking will not help the team win any games, and will certainly decrease the odds that any opponents will overlook them, the recognition is good for the players and program, and just might get a few extra fans to trek out to The Barn on a cold winter night.

The last set of games in our schedule preview hopefully will not determine if the Golden Gophers make the NCAA tournament, but will likely go a long way in determining how far they go in the NCAA tournament. If they win all the games in the must-win and should-win categories, they won’t be on the […]

The Gophers knew they were going to need a nearly flawless game to beat Florida State, and the combination of bad fouls, bad shooting, and bad seniors were far from flawless. FSU won 75-61, and the ACC is on its way to winning another Big 10-ACC challenge. For the first ten minutes of the game, […]

The Gophers face Florida State tomorrow night in the ACC-Big 1o Challenge, in what will be a key game for two possible bubble teams. While many will focus on Big 10 losing streak in these challenges, and apologists for both sides will defend their conference to the death, I am just happy that this marks […]
