Gophers walk-on Lukashewich calls playing in game 'unbelievable' experience

MINNEAPOLIS -- With 1:19 to play in the first half Friday against Seattle University, an unidentified Gophers player checked into the game. His No. 30 jersey had no name on the back. Minnesota fans who have watched their team's games earlier in the season wouldn't recognize him, either. In fact, his teammates had only recently met him -- as in just one day earlier. Mike Lukashewich...

The Gophers are getting better, and so is their non-conference season.

Just a few weeks ago, the Golden Gophers lost to St. John's, after dominating the first three quarters of the game. The season looked over at that point. The Red Storm looked awful, and the Gophers looked worse. Flash forward to the present, and it is a whole new world. Ken Pomeroy's computers are spitting out an 11-7 Big Ten record, which would be a tie for third in the Big Ten...

Morris' stellar marksmanship stands out in Gophers rout

MINNEAPOLIS -- Carlos Morris is quiet. In postgame interviews, the Gophers guard doesn't say much. It's the same on the court, too, and Minnesota head coach Richard Pitino has been trying to get Morris to come out of his shell during the Gophers' early portion of their schedule. At the start of practices, the Gophers run a drill where players have to call a teammate's name out loud...

Thompson, Gophers seniors take circuitous route to Citrus Bowl

MINNEAPOLIS -- Cedric Thompson never thought he'd be on a stage this big. Growing up in tiny Calipatria, Calif., playing Big Ten football was a pipe dream for Thompson. He received some offers from smaller schools, including in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics, before the University of Minnesota finally took a chance on him. Four years later, Thompson has left...

Notebook: Gophers best in nation at helping themselves

MINNEAPOLIS -- Gophers second-year coach Richard Pitino says he doesn't think his team is a great passing team, but believes it is an unselfish one. That unselfishness through the first 10 games of the season has resulted in Minnesota leading the nation in one specific statistic. The Gophers are averaging 19.7 assists per game, more than any other team in Division I. The next closest...

Gophers C Konate gaining valuable experience

MINNEAPOLIS -- It's been tough for Gophers center Bakary Konate to get a ton of playing time in the early going of his freshman year. The Mali native came to Minnesota still a bit raw and has had to adjust to the college game. But there will come a time -- perhaps as soon as next year -- where Konate could be the Gophers' starting center. Current centers Mo Walker and Elliott Eliason...

Big 12 can solidify flimsy resume in bowl season

The last month of the season, TCU fans had two favorite teams on Saturday: The Horned Frogs and Jerry Kill's Minnesota Golden Gophers. The playoff committee's top 25 just couldn't quit Minnesota, and the Golden Gophers finished the season in the top 25 after going 5-3 and finishing second in the Big Ten West.  By the end of the season, metrics told us the Big 12 had inched closer...

Fare thee Well, Josh Martin

Well that was fast.  Seven games into his collegiate career freshman power forward Josh Martin, Richard Pitino's first "real" recruit, has decided the University of Minnesota is not for him and has decided to transfer, effective immediately.  This comes as a bit of a surprise considering he was pretty spaztastic about the U after he signed on Twitter, including tweeting at a bunch...
