Gophers 84, Wake Forest 69

Ok so I was wrong.  Wake did get to the line a ton but didn't shoot well once there, the Gophers controlled their rebounding, and the Gophers shot the bell well and got a great night out of Andre Hollins.  Wake was as bad as I thought and the Gophers were just better.  It's nice to see them take care of business against an inferior opponent on the road, not that they'll have to...

Game Preview: Gophers vs. Wake Forest

This Wake game just sucks.  Really sucks.  It's a total no win, big loss situation.  Wake Forest is not a very good team and they just lost at home to a horrendous Delaware State club so they shouldn't be scary.  That also means a win against them will mean nothing for their March hopes, and a loss will be a big black mark.  They'll be on the road, where they're always shaky...

After it was all said and done Fischer was 10 of 13 from behind the arc and he took Jimmer Fredette’s BYU single game three point record with him.

Video: Clemson’s Robert Smith Ejected For Targeting After Questionable Call

There’s no doubt that the automatic review rule regarding the targeting penalty has helped college football. Thursday night, however, the referees still found a way to make a very questionable call in the Clemson vs. Wake Forest game. Early in the fourth quarter, Demon Deacons wideout Cam Serigne was lit up by Tigers safety Robert Smith. Smith didn’t lead with his helmet, and...
