Gophers find themselves in another NIT championship

In a game that felt like it would never end, and with a clown car of announcers and color commentators talking about anything other than the game in front of them, the Gophers overcame a back-breaking end of regulation to rebound and take care of Florida State in OT in the NIT semifinals, 67-64. With […]

Florida State NIT run spurred by Cincinnati's Thomas

Aaron Thomas is enjoying life in Tallahassee, Fla.

For the second time in three seasons, the Gophers will play in the N.I.T. semi-finals in New York City. Their opponent, the Florida State Seminoles, failed to make the NCAA tournament in large part because of their loss back in December to the Golden Gophers in the Big Ten - ACC Challenge. The Gophers will be out for revenge too, in a bit more convoluted way. Their once "good...

Florida State seeks NIT title to help kick-start next season

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Success in the NIT isn't exactly something that you put on your resume. Not making the NCAA tournament, but then piecing together a winning streak in the NIT, is a small consolation to a basketball team's season. Florida State players would probably trade their NIT success for a spot in the Big Dance, even if they were given a No. 15 or 16 seed. Florida...

Seminoles save their best for March

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida State has saved its best basketball for late March. Unfortunately, it was in a Monday night NIT game and not a Sunday night NCAA Tournament game. But impressive, regardless. Devon Bookert, for a long stretch, couldn't miss a shot and was spot on with his passes on what was a career-high 21-point night. Aaron Thomas made 8 of 10 shots and had 26 points...
