DEANDRE MATHIEU RUMORS

Deandre Mathieu can shoot. Now he needs to act like it.

The success of junior college players at the Division I level is notoriously random. Devron Bostick, touted by some of as the best junior college player in the country before joining the Golden Gophers a few years ago, barely cracked Tubby Smith's rotation. Andre Ingram, who was recruited as an emergency fill-in, unexpectedly was a valuable back-up during his two seasons with the...

Minnesota Guard DeAndre Mathieu Jabs Richard Pitino About Youthful Appearance, Wishes Him Happy “12th Birthday”

Minnesota basketball head coach Richard Pitino turned 32 today, but it would be hard to fault for people for assuming he is younger. He certainly looks it. Apparently, one of his best players likes to joke about his looks, and got him pretty good with his birthday wish. It took him a year but he finally made a funny joke! pic.twitter.com/2iAAy5rNiQ — Richard Pitino (@MNCoachPitino...

Mathieu playing big part in Gophers' NCAA tourney push

MINNEAPOLIS -- Two days after Gophers junior DeAndre Mathieu scored 18 points in a win over Northwestern, Minnesota head coach Richard Pitino briefly contemplated what this season would have been like if Mathieu was not his point guard. "I don't know where we'd be without him," Pitino said. "I think about it a lot." Without Mathieu this past Sunday, Minnesota may not have escaped...

Mathieu and Walker help Gophers stop the bleeding

After dropping three straight games to three very beatable teams, the Gophers came into their showdown with Indiana desperately needing a win. It wasn’t yet a “must-win” game, but more of a “need to win”. The conference standings had become congested in the middle, and the Gophers had dropped many opportunities to separate themselves from […]

Mathieu adjusting well to Minnesota, Big Ten

MINNEAPOLIS -- When DeAndre Mathieu first arrived on the University of Minnesota campus this past fall, there were questions about how the Gophers' new point guard would adjust to the big stage of the Big Ten. That wasn't just because Mathieu is listed at 5-foot-9, the shortest player on the roster. The suspicions also had to do with the competition he had faced during his first...

Gophers upset Ohio State in double-digit fashion

After near misses against Michigan and Michigan State in conference play, it was starting to look like the Gophers would never get over the hump of actually taking down one of the Big Ten’s top teams.

MINNEAPOLIS -- DeAndre Mathieu is a former junior college player now playing at the Division I level. Teammate Malik Smith is also adjusting to life in the Big Ten after playing last season at Florida International.
