Hollins, Ahanmisi provide lift for Gophers on Senior Night

MINNEAPOLIS -- Austin Hollins hopes Sunday was his last game at Williams Arena. If it's not, that means the Gophers senior guard and his teammates fell short of their goal of playing in the NCAA tournament and instead settled for a trip to the NIT.

Senior Day 2014

The home careers of Austin Hollins, Maverick Ahanmisi, Oto Osenieks, and Malik Smith will (hopefully) come to an end on Sunday afternoon, as the Golden Gophers celebrate senior day, and hopefully inch one step closer to a return to the NCAA tournament.

This off-season's recruiting is beginning to look a bit like early 2008, except that the Gophers are hardly in dire straits when it comes to ball handlers.

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...
