Consolation championship means Tubby rematch in Puerto Rico

What does going 1-1 in the first two rounds of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off get you? This year, it’s a rematch with the lovable, cuddly, bespeckled Tubby Smith and the Texas Tech Red Raiders. That’s right, the long-awaited rematch with our former leader and zone defense wizard is upon us — Tubby Time has returned.

Weekend recap: Gophers start 2-0

Hey, did you know the actual regular season started on Friday? It’s true. But, judging by the sparse crowd at Williams Arena over the weekend, it appears that most people haven’t quite come to grips with it being basketball season. The Gophers kicked off the non-con season with games against UMKC and Louisiana-Monroe. The former was the definition of a creampuff, while the latter...

Season opener: Gophers vs. Kangaroos

Well, we’re here. Notice how I didn’t use an exclamation point there? I mean, I’m excited for a new season, but it’s also kind of a, “well, let’s get this over with” type of feeling right now. The future is more exciting than the present, currently. It’s going to be a weird season full of smoke, mirrors, development, fouls, turnovers, lots of Carlos Morris shots,...

Kevin Dorsey suspended, Gophers already #Gophering

Oh, hey Gophers, nice to see you’re back at it. And we haven’t even started the season yet! Now we can add, “top recruit suspended in only second game of career” to list of things that just tend to happen here. If you check the box score closely from last night’s exhibition win over SW Minnesota State, you’ll notice that freshman phenom hopeful Kevin Dorsey did not suit...

Big(ger) rule changes coming this year

The NCAA makes rule alterations here and there each year,  but this year there are actually a few bigger changes worth talking about. The biggest one is the move to a 30-second shot clock from the traditional 35-second timing. This is impactful for a number of reasons, but most important is the potential to significantly shape teams’ overall approach to offense and defense. Five...

Meet the new guys: Kevin Dorsey

If DeAndre Mathieu graduating meant one thing, it’s that the starting point guard spot was going to be contentious.

Meet the new guys: Jordan Murphy

News that Bakary Konate will be on the shelf for at least a month with a stress fracture in his foot is up there with the worst news the Gophers could have received this early in the season. Already thin down low, this means the team has no true center and will need to pinch hit with Gaston Diedhiou. That’s a horrifying thought considering his lack of experience and lack of developed...

If nothing else, the 2015-16 season is going to be one of fresh faces. Losing foundational pieces like Andre Hollins, Mo Walker, DeAndre Mathieu and, to a lesser extent, Elliott Eliason hurts in the box score, but also drastically changes the makeup of the team. In fact, this year there are six newcomers, which doesn’t even include the two transfers who won’t play this year....
