Gophers finished third in NIT Tip-Off! (out of 4).

First they were in total charge of the St. John's game, until they weren't, and ended up losing.  Then they were in total charge of the Georgia game, until they weren't, but ended up winning.  Overall the event did more to make me pessimistic about the rest of the season than optimistic, but that doesn't mean there weren't some positives.  Up front I will tell you I watched the...

Long Beach St.-St. John's Preview

The only things that have surprised St. John's coach Steve Lavin during his squad's hot start are the rare times when his players don't play the brand of basketball he expects. The 20th-ranked Red Storm often respond to his message quickly.

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...
