The big sports story on the University of Minnesota campus is definitely the Gopher mens basketball team. The Gopher team led by Tubby Smith are hot hot hot! The Gophers beat the Northwestern Wildcats last night at The Barn 82-63 – there were a number of stand out plays and players, but Gopher Gals favorite was definite the string of three pointers by Blake Hoffarber – he was on fire!!!! He sunk 5 for 5 and the Wildcats coach just shook his head in disbelief. There is something special about a nice long shot, I think I like the 3 pointer more than I like a convincing slam dunk, there is something beautiful about a ball sailing through the air and hitting the hoop and swishing through the net.
The Gopher basketball team has a tough Conference Schedule ahead of them, but I wouldn’t count them out of the big games and be sure to buy a Gopher Basketball ticket so you can have a front and center view of the action. Go Gophers!!!!!!
