Michigan has already suffered back-to-back home losses to NJIT and Eastern Michigan. And on Wednesday, the same day Hollins' Gophers dispensed of Southern, the Nebraska Cornhuskers fell at home to Incarnate Word, a school new to Division I competition...

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. The next...

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...

Gophers rip Minnesota-Duluth in not-secret exhibition

The not-secret portion of Minnesota’s preseason schedule kicked off Thursday night against Minnesota-Duluth. Usually reserved as a hockey rivalry, the Bulldogs probably wished the game was held on ice, as it would have mitigated the talent gap between the two teams. While the Gophers have had close calls with D-II teams in the past,  UMD was no match, falling easily 95-68. Five...

With Austin Hollins gone, Gophers need to fill leadership void

MINNEAPOLIS -- Former Gophers guard Austin Hollins has continued his basketball career by playing professionally in France. As Minnesota prepares for its first season without Hollins, it has to replace a few things Hollins contributed. Of course, it's worth noting that Hollins was the Gophers' second-leading scorer last year with an average of 12.4 points per game. He was also Minnesota...

After NIT title, veteran Gophers 'striving to accomplish more'

ROSEMONT, Ill. -- They cut strands of netting in Madison Square Garden last April and celebrated a college basketball championship. There were hugs, smiles and a trophy -- all the elements players had dreamed about since before arriving at Minnesota. But what is a college basketball championship when it's not that college basketball championship? You know, the one that ends with...

Healthy again, Andre Hollins should bounce back.

The Golden Gophers will go as far as Andre Hollins can carry them this season, and Hollins will go as far as his ankles let him. The combo-guard has a good chance to become the Gophers' all-time leading scorer, despite being healthy for only one complete season, his sophomore year. That season he scored 41 points in a game, was named third team All-Big Ten, and helped his team make...

Six things that need to happen at The Barn (but probably won’t).

It is getting perilously close to the start of the Golden Gophers basketball season. Practice starts tomorrow. The first game isn't much more than a month away. It might snow a bit this weekend. Things are getting real, as kids once said. Here is a wishlist for the upcoming season, with items both reasonable and unrealistic.
