Great athletes and size on Florida State. Nice to see us out-coaching the other team. Hightower was dominating but we pulled it out.

Very impressive win. Florida States 2 losses were by 1pt at Florida and 2pts at Michigan. They're a very good team. The Gophers played great. Pitino gets the most out of his players and has shown the ability to out coach other coaches. What a breath of fresh air!

I had to laugh when the ESPNU announcer talked about the distinguished career of Hightower. There have been few worse than this ref.

Great team effort tonight! The refs whistles were out of control though...not sure if that new hand checking rule was the main culprit or not, but tonight was brutal.

This Gopher team is so much fun to watch. No longer boring passes on the outside until the clock run down and then just throwing up a wild shot.

Can someone tell the analyst on ESPN that his name is Andre Hollins, not DeAndre? Andre is too good to have his name mangled. Great job tonight, Gophers! Way to play tough down the stretch!

Not a fan of Pitino or how he got his million a year job at 31...but have to admit the Tubby style wouldn't have won this game. Movement was definitely impressive.

Nice job Gophers. Doesn't bode well when your two bigs get themselves fouled out of the game. However, the Gophers were able to overcome the adversity and come out with a win against a quality opponent.

Nice to see a well coached Gopher team having fun and playing basketball the right way. The refs were completely confused...they blew the whistle and then tried to figure out what to call.
