DEANDRE MATHIEU RUMORS

Gophers eventually ease past W. Carolina, 84-64

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- DeAndre Mathieu had 16 points and six assists, one of five players for Minnesota who scored in double digits, to help the Golden Gophers pull away from Western Carolina after a sluggish start and beat the Catamounts 84-64 on Friday night. Carlos Morris pitched in 16 points on 7-for-9 shooting and Andre Hollins added 15 points for the Gophers (6-2), who were outrebounded...

What to watch while the Gophers are winning.

The competitive portion of the non-conference Golden Gopher basketball season is over. The Gophers have four weeks and six games to prepare themselves for the Big Ten season. Thanks to wins over Georgia and Wake Forest, the Gophers should still have a reasonable chance to make the NCAA tournament with a 9-9 or 10-8 conference record, if they can improve enough to do so. The next...

Mathieu makes presence felt in Gophers victory

MINNEAPOLIS -- DeAndre Mathieu was a spectator for far longer than he wanted to be when his Gophers team took on Louisville in the season opener Friday in Puerto Rico. Foul trouble limited Minnesota's starting point guard to 25 minutes, and he wound up being mostly a non-factor. No foul trouble meant Mathieu's presence was felt much more Tuesday as Minnesota topped Western Kentucky...

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, Gophers break skid by finally finding way to win close game

MINNEAPOLIS -- For two straight games, Gophers point guard DeAndre Mathieu came up short with a chance to win the game in the final seconds. He wasn't about to be denied on his third attempt. With Minnesota clinging to a two-point lead Saturday against visiting Indiana, Mathieu slashed into the lane and scored a layup with 11.6 seconds remaining to put the Gophers up by four. He...

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. Wins over Purdue and Penn State showed that they weren’t at the bottom of the barrel, but without a […]

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.
