Heading into a sizeable dearth of game activity in which they only play two games in two games in 20 days, the Gophers first made quick work of the North Dakota State Bison 70-57 in a sort-of-close-but-not-really victory at Williams Arena. Now finals week can commence and the players can focus on getting their schoolwork [...]

On their slow and deliberate march towards the top ten, the Golden Gophers have three obstacles in their way. The first two are North Dakota State and Lafayette. The third is finals week. Coming off their second true road win of the season, the team is in the enviable position of only needing to take care of business on the court and in the classroom. The hard part of the non-conference season is over. The Big Ten season doesn’t start for three weeks. Now they need to survive two more games, rest, focus, and gain a whole lot of legitimacy by beating Michigan State on New Year’s Eve.

Non-conference games against low-major teams always make me the most nervous. Nothing good can come from them. If the Gophers win, they do nothing but meet expectations, while risking injuries, laziness, and ultimately a loss that could ruin a season. Close games against unimpressive competition doesn’t produce the giddy excitement that makes college basketball the [...]

Feel free to leave your picks in the comments if you so desire, so five months from now I can at the [...]

Add mental toughness to the list of characteristics that could make this a very special season of Golden Gopher basketball. In a prototypical trap game scenario, the Gophers finished both halves on big runs to beat North Dakota State. Coming off the best week of regular season basketball in well over a decade, and right [...]

Mascot Death Match Vote for Goldy! It’s Gopher Season Arrogant and over-confident Texans? Shocking! Let’s up hope they hang up the “Mission Accomplished” banner before the game. Minnesota Gophers are underdogs against Texas in NCAA tournament first round With such vastly different styles of play, I wouldn’t call anyone a favorite. Aldrich’s high school coach [...]

We all know what he can do against Northwestern. Now imagine what he could do in a tournament full of Northwestern level competition. Averaging 16 ppg over the first 7 games of the Jones Cup isn’t bad, especially for a kid who will be lucky to see 16 minutes in any game this coming year. [...]

You aren’t seeing things. I did just write that Dan Coleman and Kevin Peyton played key roles in the Gophers surprisingly lopsided 89-56 victory over the Bison. While both players had their best games of the season, it is admittedly a stretch to say either decided the game. In fact, it is a stretch to [...]

Unfortunately, due to a myriad of circumstance including furniture, bad weather, shoveling out parked cars, and an office holiday party involving a fake Santa Claus with an Irish accent asking people to sit on his lap while making speculum jokes, I don’t have time to preview what should be a fun game against NDSU. Thankfully, [...]
