Great job covering Gophers!

Impressive performance. Stanford has a lot of bigs, yet Trevor and Rodney were able to compete inside all night. If Mo continues to improve his conditioning and Eliason/Ingram provide some good minutes, Tubby has lots of options down low. But Mbakwe is the key. Rodney now shows up every night and makes a solid, consistent (and often spectacular) contribution but Trevor is the difference maker on this team. He creates opportunity for everyone else. Thanks for your continued great reporting, Amelia.

Trevor and Rodney could be NBA draft picks; the potential has always been there for both. Trevor obviously has a rare combination of natural speed and strength that can't be taught or added in the weight room. If he and Rodney work hard, stay humble and remain focused, the Gophers will have their best season in years and both will be earning a good living on the basketball court for years to come.

Yes Trevor is a very good big ten player in his 6th yr of college. He will be drafted and have a big presence for some team. My only thoughts are this.......keep your nose clean until April. Just win for Minn.
