Gophers senior Welch playing with urgency

MINNEAPOLIS Julian Welch didn't contribute at all to Minnesota's upset over No. 1 Indiana last week. The senior guard didn't even have the opportunity, as he spent the entire game on the bench for the first time all season. One game after the Gophers stunned the Hoosiers at Williams Arena, Welch was in Minnesota's starting lineup. It was done by Tubby Smith to have...

Gophers end home slate against Penn State on (super) Senior Day.

All good things must come to an end, and hopefully on Saturday, that includes the home careers of Trevor Mbakwe, Rodney Williams, Julian Welch, and Andre Ingram. We don't want to see them go. Rodney Williams soaring through air and Trevor Mbakwe's chest pounding dunks will be sorely missed. But if we do see them play another game in venerable Williams Arena, it means something...

Gophers comfortably beat USC, proving that untelevised west coast games count.

Yes, it turns out. Basketball games on the west coast that are unseen do in fact count. The Golden Gophers beat the mediocre at best USC Trojans in rather convincing fashion. Minnesota is the 2012-2013 champion of maroon and gold. How about that? Normally I'd try to provide some analysis of what happened. Since the closest I came to actually seeing the game was ESPN's game...

Gophers need to show energy vs. Indiana

MINNEAPOLIS The first time Minnesota faced Indiana this season, the Gophers were in the midst of an 0-4 start to the Big Ten schedule. But Tubby Smith's squad upset the then-No. 8 Hoosiers on the road and built a three-game winning streak.At that time, the win at Indiana was a much-needed spark. The Gophers, whose NCAA Tournament fire is dying quickly, could certainly use another...

Juco transfer Welch has Gophers running well

MINNEAPOLIS Minnesota forward Rodney Williams may have had the highlight of the game Saturday with his 360 dunk in the first half against USC, but it was the steady play of point guard Julian Welch that solidified the win. Welch, a junior college transfer from Yuba (Calif.) Community College, had a team-high 16 points along with six assists and two steals as coach Tubby Smiths...
