    2024 Recruiting

    Yes, the Gophers have made an offer to a player (Chloe Spreen) who, gulp, has not yet started high school. She's a 5-9 shooting guard from Indiana, who also has an offer from Michigan State. https://www.captainu.com/Basketball/2024/ChloeSpreen

    Raoul sez Chaska's 6-1 forward Mallory Heyer, who also plays for Minnesota Fury, has an offer from the Gophers. (Yes, that means she's a freshman.)

    Gold and Maroon Scrimmage

    It was fun to see the team in (sorta) action. Staples is definitely a shooter, didn't take great care of the ball today, though. Pitts looks fantastic and, like several of the players, looks fitter than last season. Not to sound like a broken record but not only was Gadiva Hubbard not on the...

    B1G Conference games

    Pretty much as expected: OSU over NE MD over IL MI over PSU MN over NW (handily) IA over WI (not so handily) RU over PU MSU over IN (Buss shot 18%) Watching a bit of the OSU game made me think: I hope Coach Kelsey Mitchell's Dad has started lining up his next gig.

    Gophers 2018

    This is the first commitment in the class, right? Raoul is reporting that Delaynie Byrne, a 6-2 forward from Colorado's Ralston Valley High School has committed. She has also tweeted it, and retweeted several other tweets about it, including Stollings' Boom tweet.

    Penn State 2017-18

    PSU, having lost some key players to transfers, releases its non-conference schedule. It is not impressive: http://www.centredaily.com/sports/college/penn-state-university/psu-basketball/article157985039.html (Also, a procedural question that's offtopic: Does anyone have luck with the search...

    Better next year?

    I agree with those who doubt the trigger will be pulled because the buyout is so expensive but the thing is: Is there any chance next year will be better? Sure, Pitts -- as the Barn monitors have been telling us all season long -- is a baller. She is also, it seems, the ONLY recruit in the next...

    WBB: Borton's book

    Nothing hugely surprising in this precis but there is a smidge more detail about the much-speculated-about exodus: http://www.startribune.com/pam-bortons-new-book-details-tubby-firing-teague-dysfunction/389765001/

    Banham is a first-team All American

    Also on the AP All-American team: Breanna Stewart, Moriah Jefferson, Kelsey Mitchell, A'ja Wilson. (Cue the outrage from the PAC-12, which is starting to look like the strongest conference this season but is unrepresented on the first team)

    Gophers vs U of South Dakota at Williams Arena, Sunday, March 20, 2 p.m.

    A little post defense would be welcome and it would be nice if Banham didn't HAVE to be superheroic for the Gophers to win this one.

    ESPN picks Banham First Team

    For the second year in a row, the Gophers have one of the top five players in the country. And they're not even going to make the tournament. http://espn.go.com/espnw/sports/slideshow/14943006/9/morgan-tuck-connecticut-f-6-2-redshirt-junior
