Mo Walker was a MAN tonight. Well done Gophers.

It was great to see Mo finally get more playing time and contribute. Amelia...Wisconsin has now lost 3 games in a row...but I would still say this is a signature win for the Gophers! A great overall effort, despite being without leading scorer Andre Hollins for most of the game. :-)

What can you say, to go and beat and score 81 on Wisconsin without your best player is a testament to the awesome job Richard Pitino is doing with this team. We are seeing things I never thought we'd see. Mo Walker, Little Dre, Oto, Austin came alive the 2nd half just an all around fantastic job. Great Job coach Pitino.

Best performance by the Gophers in years! What a great show! They put it together on both ends of the court.

Mo dominated tonight. If Tubby was still here Walker would be out of basketball. Pitino has these kids playing together and believing in each other. Great game!

Where has this version of Mo Walker been? With that kind of lost post presence, the Gophers could be a surprise possibly a top five finish and an NCAA tournament bid! Awesome to see Mo take a new commitment to his conditioning and not taking the easy way out when he found out Richard Pitino was coming on board with his uptempo style of play! Now if only big Mo could string a few of these together, the Gophs could surprise!

Great win tonight! If you would have told me that they'd beat Wisconsin and Hollins would be gone for (basically) the entire game, I'd say you were crazy!

congrats to the rodents. Mo and Otto are playing with confidence and aggression. Great to see. Love beating cheeseheads in any sport. That being said, I think Wisc. is the better team and it won't be close in Madison. Congrats to Sir Richard who has given the kids confidence and given us fans an offense that is entertaining and productive. And what about Mathieu? This kid is the glue that keeps it all together. No trouble getting the ball in like we did with "he who shall not be named".
