Shooters find not every basketball is same in college game

Unlike the NBA, the NCAA has no uniform game ball for regular-season games. That means a team could be playing with an unfamiliar ball during road games. And in a sport in which ''shooter's touch'' is part of the lexicon, the feel of the ball can't be minimized. With all the talk over deflated footballs before the Super Bowl, the topic of balls also has bubbled up in college basketball...

Gophers focused on improving, carrying momentum through Big Ten play

MINNEAPOLIS -- A weight was lifted off the collective shoulders of the Gophers basketball players when Minnesota earned its first Big Ten win on Saturday. Yet the reality two days later is that the Gophers are still 1-5 in conference play, even with that much-needed win. The message Richard Pitino has for his team: the win was nice, but there's still plenty of work to do. "I still...

Hollins scores 31 points, leads Gophers to first Big Ten win

MINNEAPOLIS -- Andre Hollins doesn't dunk much. He came into Saturday's game against Rutgers with just seven dunks in his four-year career at Minnesota. It's even rarer for Hollins to dunk in traffic. In fact, he can't recall the last time he did that in a game. So when the Gophers guard took off and threw down a dunk early in the first half, it appeared as if the senior was poised...

Road reaction: Wolverines 62, Gophers 57

Minnesota's Big Ten woes continue. Needing a win in Ann Arbor, Mich., to avoid a 0-4 start in conference play, the Gophers let a second-half lead slip away as they lost 62-57 to the Michigan Wolverines. Turnovers plagued Minnesota in the second half, and the Gophers couldn't make enough stops defensively to prevent Michigan from rallying for the win. Minnesota needs to get on track...

After rough road games, Gophers senior guards need rebound

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) There is a group text message that goes out regularly among Minnesota's five seniors, encouraging each other with reminders to take full advantage of the dwindling opportunities to not only play for the Gophers but experience success together. This week has brought as much urgency as ever. After losing their first two Big Ten games, both on the road, the Gophers...

Gophers need senior guards Hollins, Mathieu to play better

MINNEAPOLIS -- In Minnesota's loss to Maryland on Saturday, guards Andre Hollins and DeAndre Mathieu combined for as many turnovers -- six -- as they did points. That's not a good recipe for the Gophers, who are relying heavily on the senior duo this season. Mathieu -- who had posted an impressive assist-to-turnover ratio earlier in the year -- committed five turnovers and had just...

What to watch while the Gophers are winning.

The competitive portion of the non-conference Golden Gopher basketball season is over. The Gophers have four weeks and six games to prepare themselves for the Big Ten season. Thanks to wins over Georgia and Wake Forest, the Gophers should still have a reasonable chance to make the NCAA tournament with a 9-9 or 10-8 conference record, if they can improve enough to do so.

52-point second half keys true road win for Gophers

For the first 20 minutes of Minnesota’s portion of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge it looked like the same under-achieving team that had somehow become the new normal was once again taking the floor. With faulty ballhandling and an inability to maintain momentum, the Gophers looked just as lost in the half-court offense as they had in both games out in New York City. But behind a raucous...
