The offseason is just a few weeks old and already the Gopher basketball team has a couple things to report. First and foremost, Paul Carter has announced that he will be transferring from the U to be closer to his sister, who is battling cancer in Chicago. Carter has said he will consider the University […]

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 […]

On his first field goal attempt of his college basketball career, punt returner/point guard rolled in a three pointer. Moments later he hit Justin Cobbs on a three-quarter court bounce pass that led to a thunderous dunk. A second later it was Rodney Williams streaking to the basket, too contested to dunk but not for […]

I came into yesterday’s game with above-average expectations for a team that, for the most part, has underachieved all season. They’d been up and down for the better part of the last month but were coming off a stretch where they had won two of three and seemed to have been gaining some momentum after […]

Minnesota’s goal going into last night’s game at #4 Purdue was of course to win, and if not win, at least be competitive. That secondary goal was achieved, though the scoreboard may indicate otherwise. The scoreboard is not always a reliable narrator. The 12 point Gopher victory in Iowa City was more of a blow […]

This article is part five of our season review. Part one discussed Kevin Payton. Part two looked at Travis Busch. Part three covered Jamal Abu-Shamala. Part four waxed poetic about Jonathan Williams. Paul Carter arrived in Minneapolis just over a year ago with undeniable potential and more than a few questions. Not least of these […]

Maybe you have seen a game like this before. The Gophers get out to a dreadful start that is matched by a just as pathetic effort by their opponents. The Gophers fall behind on a momentum swinging buzzer beater at the end of the first half. Turnovers, poor decisions, and embarrassing mistakes, give their opponents […]

I hope you can forgive me taking to long to write about Minnesota’s “win” over Indiana on Tuesday night. After watching the Gophers show little intensity or intuition on the offensive end against the worst defensive team in the Big Ten, my motivation was lacking, though apparently not as much as the Gophers’ motivation to […]
