Something special is happening, and we aren't the only ones noticing. Statistical guru, college-basketball extraordinaire, and occasional Gopher observer Dan Hanner broke down the team's transformation by comparing the last six games to the season as a whole. Being born in Minnesota and witnessing the Gophers previous N.I.T. title runs in person, it still isn't obvious why he bothered to calculate Gopher basketball statistics right after digging through the NCAA Tournament statistics for every player who matters. Regardless, he was generous enough to share his work with us. Dan writes regularly over at RealGM, and is mandatory follow on Twitter.
