Up to #13, Gophers need to survive two more games to reach the top 10.

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.

The hard part of the non-conference...

Freshman Ellenson could still make an impact

MINNEAPOLIS So much for that redshirt. Gophers freshman Wally Ellenson made his college basketball debut Tuesday, checking into the game against North Dakota State with 3:44 left in the second half.
