The Minnesota Golden Gophers women’s basketball team won at home on Sunday and snapped their four game losing streak. The Gophers beat Indiana at Williams Arena 79-69. Sunday was also Senior Recognition Day and the lady Gophers honored their sole senior, Kelly Roysland.
Hundreds of Roysland supporters from her hometown of Fosston, Minn. made the trip to Williams Arena to see Roysland play. The majority of the 8,612 Gophers fans stayed until after the game to hear Roysland’s senior speech in which she thanked her family, coaches and teammates. Roysland had a great day on the court and her three-pointer 38 seconds into the game made her the 17th player in Minnesota history to score 1,000 career points. She finished the day with 13 points in her first game back from a broken collarbone injury suffered in a game against Iowa on Jan. 25. Sophomore guard Emily Fox led all scorers with 23 points, also dishing out four assists and collecting three steals.
