Gophers' Hollins wants to go out a winner

MINNEAPOLIS -- Kevin McHale's picture hangs in the rafters of Williams Arena, his No. 44 long since retired. McHale went on to a Hall of Fame career in the NBA, but not until first leaving his mark on the University of Minnesota's basketball program. Gophers senior Andre Hollins will almost assuredly surpass McHale -- as well as former Minnesota forward Sam Jacobson – for fourth...

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...

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...

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.

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

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...
