Great win, Gophs. Trevor simply dominated a soft inside IN team. I hope they meet again in the B1G tourney or in the Dance. When your team shots 20% from behind the arc and you STILL BEAT the #1 team, it's a tribute to toughness. Thanks, Trev. Now let's hope they finish strong and go on a run into the tourney(s).

With a little better coach, a little better 3-point shooting team, along with a little better point guard he could have been totally dominant in every game this year. Thank you Trevor for hanging around another year, not sure where the team would be without your help & dominance again this year.

Great article. A night to remember.

For a night Mbakwe showed just how good he can be in a no-holds-barred game. College refs love the charge call, but Mbakwe's game is well suited for pro ball, either here or overseas. Great energy, complete domination of the overrated Zeller.

Here's one for Sid...the only thing that would have made it any better tonight...Mr. Knight on the bench to watch his team lose. Now that would have been great...

I could give a rip about what Souhan writes, but that is one great photo!

Great win for the Gophers. This one will not be forgotten for quite a while!

But last week everyone wanted to fire Tubby......I don't get Minnesota fans...I sincerely don't....

My favorite quote in here is Trevor saying "coach was hard on us but we deserved it". The last time we heard about coach being hard on them it was Rodney whining about being 'thrown under a bus'. Glad to hear that we have a senior taking some responsibility for the teams play. That is leadership! And playing like a beast in the middle doesn't hurt either!

If someone doesn't give a "rip' about what someone writes then they should just look at 'pictures'. As a Gopher Fan, not just a spectator, I've hung around for more than forty years happy for a few of these delicious 'crumbs'.
