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.

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...

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...

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...
