    Default Minnesota All-Decade Teams

    Since the decade is coming to a close I thought it would be interesting to get everyones take on who would be first and second team all-decade for the Gophers. Mine would be:

    First Team

    Nate Mason
    Andre Hollins
    Amir Coffey
    Jordan Murphy
    Trevor Mbakwe


    Second Team

    Al Nolen
    Blake Hoffarber
    Austin Hollins
    Damien Johnson
    Daniel Oturu


    HM
    Larry Westbrook
    Rodney Williams
    Ralph Sampson III
    Deandre Mathieu
    Gabe Kalscheur
    Akeem Springs

    This, my friend, through no fault of yours, is a very depressing exercise. Recruiting is obviously why we don't win more!
    Gosh, that's a meh list of guys compared to names of the past.

    I might substitute Hoffarber for Hollins on the 1st team.
    I'd add Joey King to the 2nd or third group.

    I didn't look at any stats to help me out but I did scroll through the rosters looking for better candidates and I believe yours is pretty complete.

    We gotta do better than this going forward! Hopefully, Ihnen, Carr, Willis, Oturu, Gabe can all force arguments to either be included or ranked higher!

    Being a little informal there aren't you?

    It would be interesting to see the rebounding numbers if Mbakwe and Murphy played together

    Fun idea! Can we include Reggie Lynch or are we considering the character of the players as well? I think mine would be:

    First Team:

    Nate Mason
    Blake Hoffarber
    Amir Coffey
    Jordan Murphy
    Trevor Mbakwe

    Second Team:

    Al Nolen
    Andre Hollins
    Austin Hollins
    Damien Johnson
    Reggie Lynch

    I like your second team for their defense for sure! Weakness is still outside shooting. Hoffarber and Dre Hollings only really good shooters.

    I'm kinda surprised nobody has brought up Bakary Konate yet... Surely he is deserving of an HM at the least?!

    I rest my case

    I'm certain you need Hoffarber on the first team if you want to make a 3 once in a while.

    PG: Nate Mason - Best PG
    SG: Blake Hoffarber - Best Shooter
    SF: Austin Hollins - Best total team player - gets nod over Coffey cause he takes less away from other players
    PF: Jordan Murphy - Best rebounder
    C: Trevor Mbawkwe - Best BEAST!!!! - Sorry, favorite player on this list!

    Bench:
    Al Nolen
    Amir Coffey
    Rodney Williams
    Andre Hollins
    Reggie Lynch
    Ralph Sampson
    Lawrence Westbrook
    Damien Johnson
    Daniel Oturu
    Gabe Kalesheur

    You can say the list is underwhelming but, I'd like our chances with this team going into any year. Good luck getting a rebound with Murph and Trevor in there!

    Oh and ………..

    Coach: Richard Pitino

    Best defensive lineup:
    Al Nolen
    Austin Hollins
    Rodney Williams
    Damien Johnson
    Reggie Lynch
