Found February 15, 2013 on From The Barn:
In what was perhaps the biggest game of the season in terms of postseason implications, the Gophers fought tooth and nail against Wisconsin to notch an overtime victory that went down to the final seconds. After a solid start to the season, the Gophers ended a free fall that saw them fall out of the [...]

Tubby Smith grooving after Gophers beat Badgers might be best thing ever (video)

Being a resident of the fine state of Minnesota, I have unfortunately witnessed up-close the Tubby Smith Era of Minnesota Golden Gophers basketball. Smith arrived with much fanfare, leading many Gophers fans to believe that the worst days for the program were behind it and that only great things were on the horizon. Sadly — and surprisingly — things have not gone as planned....

Gophers beat Badgers, steal victory dance

Minnesota coach Tubby Smith knew exactly what he was doing when he started dancing in the locker room following his team’s 58-53 win over Wisconsin on Valentine’s Day evening. Tubby had his staff crank up the music in the locker room to blast Ke$ha’s “Die Young,” he kept the cameras running, and then cut a rug. The dance was a not so subtle jab at Wisconsin who had their...

Minnesota coach Tubby Smith danced in locker room after win over Wisconsin (Video)

Minnesota Golden Gophers men's basketball coach Tubby Smith celebrated Thursday's 58-53 victory over Big Ten rival Wisconsin by breaking out some MC Hammer-style moves while dancing to Ke$ha's "Die Young". Not sure what Smith was more excited about: the big win, or the fact that it happened to be Valentine's Day. Either way, it certainly was a great...

Shooting Droughts, Puzzling Play cost Badgers in 58-53 loss to Gophers

Wisconsin and Minnesota left off where they started in Madison, only this time no one was the victor in regulation. Instead the 20th ranked Badgers played their third straight overtime game, a first in school history, but unlike the previous two OT games this one didn't go the Badgers way as they were downed 58-53 at Williams arena.  All you need to know about this one is...

Gophers take down No. 20 Badgers, 58-53

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) --MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Andre Hollins had a talk with the boss. Over lunch, coach Tubby Smith reminded his streaky sophomore point guard which shots the Gophers want and how they need him to run their offense. One day later, Hollins made clear he was listening. Hollins hit the go-ahead 3-pointer midway through overtime to finish with 21 points and lead Minnesota to...

Game Recap: No Deju Vu for Wisconsin

Freshman Sam Dekker scored 14 points and Ben Brust added 11 points, but No.20 Wisconsin didn't score in the final 5:08 of regulation to force the program's third straight overtime. Unlike the last two times, this one didn't bounce in its favor, as Minnesota broke a four-game series losing streak with a 58-53 overtime victory at Williams Arena Thursday.

Perfect Connection

Senior forward Mike Bruesewitz will never be a 20-point scorer for the Wisconsin basketball team, but the Minnesota native has provided all the little things that have kept the Badgers in the thick of the conference race with seven games to go.

Smith, Gophers steal Badgers' best moves

MINNEAPOLIS Nothing like beating your rivals and then stealing their celebration song. Shortly after the Minnesota men's basketball team defeated No. 20 Wisconsin 58-53 in overtime Thursday, the Gophers huddled in the locker room to listen to head coach Tubby Smith. After Smith finished his postgame speech, the team broke into a frenzied celebration as Keha's "Die...

Gophers' stretch run continues vs. pesky Iowa

MINNEAPOLIS Thursday's win was nice for the Gophers men's basketball team. It came against rival Wisconsin, helped pull Minnesota out of a rut and was followed by some postgame dancing. But that overtime victory against the 20th-ranked Badgers will mean little if the Gophers can't build off of it the rest of the season. It starts Sunday when Minnesota travels to face...

Gophers, Badgers conflicting styles clash

MINNEAPOLIS Minnesota's offense is at its best when the Gophers are able to score in transition and push the tempo of the game. Their opponent Thursday is just the opposite. The Badgers love to slow the game down, almost painstakingly so, and thrive on running their half-court offense until the shot clock near its expiration. That's the reason why last month's matchup...

Tubby Smith Shakes His Ass To Ke$ha In Locker Room After Beating Wisconsin

On a brutally slow night in sports one of the biggest stories was Minnesota’s 58-53 upset of #20 Wisconsin in overtime. Tubby Smith was pumped to get back on track in Big 10 play and his enthusiasm showed in the locker room in dance form. Tubby was showing more excitement than we’ve seen out of him in a while. His post-game speech, short and sweet: Today is a wonderful day...
