JOEY KING RUMORS & GOSSIP

Big Ten Tournament can help Joey King transition into leader role

Joey King knows his role at Minnesota will increase dramatically next season. With three key seniors graduating, King, a 6-foot-9 forward, will become one of the Golden Gophers’ main guys. He realizes that, and it has shown in his play the last two games. King followed up a great performance in the regular season finale against Penn State with an even better outing Wednesday...

Game Preview: Gophers vs. Somebody

I'm taking my kids to the Gopher game tomorrow.  I just now realized that I have no idea who they're playing, that's how checked out I am this year.  That's kind of the reason I haven't written a post game post in a while.  I watch the games, I take notes like usual, then the Gophers self combust and lose the game in some kind of disheartening way and I really don't want to write...

Gophers 67, Florida State 64

Well they won.  Winning is better than losing, right?  Even in the NIT which forces me and you to watch another game that we barely care about.  They certainly tried to lose, but FSU just wanted the loss more.  Anyway, here are ten things I liked and didn't like.1.  Joey King was a total spaz.  For someone who was such a big part of the offense in this NIT run to win with him...

King and Walker must play big to stop the still massive Seminoles.

For the second time in three seasons, the Gophers will play in the N.I.T. semi-finals in New York City. Their opponent, the Florida State Seminoles, failed to make the NCAA tournament in large part because of their loss back in December to the Golden Gophers in the Big Ten - ACC Challenge. The Gophers will be out for revenge too, in a bit more convoluted way. Their once "good win...

Gophers regroup, turn attention to NIT foe High Point

MINNEAPOLIS -- Players from the Gophers men's basketball team didn't even bother to gather together to watch Sunday's NCAA tournament selection show. In their hearts, they seemingly knew that they wouldn't hear their names called. Minnesota coach Richard Pitino said that he felt his team had a 40 percent chance of making the Big Dance. Turns out his premonition was right. Too many...

Purdue 77, Minnesota 74

Blah blah balh let's just get to the 10 things I liked and mostly didn't like.1.  First off, as most triple overtimes games are this one was heart breaking.  The bad part is it wasn't heart breaking in a "they battled their asses off just couldn't get the win" way or a "man they really did everything they could it just wasn't enough" way.  It was heart breaking in a "Purdue did...
