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.

Ken Pomeroy's computers are spitting out an 11-7 Big Ten record, which would be a tie for third in the Big Ten...
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 Fighting Coach Lavs will be a factor in the Big East race this season. St. John’s look like they might finally be headed back to the NCAA Tournament as well come March. Sure, the Cuse are not the Cuse that we know, but tonight was still huge for Steve Lavin and the Johnnies.

Chris Obekpa is tryng to make these shorts a new thing now.
During last night’s St Johns v Minnesota matchup, there was a blast from the past and they came in the form of shorts. Chis Obekpa’s shorts are incredibly short. Kudos to him for wearing them.

Before getting to the Red Storm we might as well get the unpleasantness out of the way: Daquein McNeil has been arrested for domestic assault and is being held without bail. I haven't seen any details beyond that and the Gophers have suspended him indefinitely pending an investigation. In the current climate things certainly don't look good for McNeil, but hopefully the team...

The Johnnies are at Marquette today in a contest that will keep the winner in NCAA Tournament at-large berth contention.
