    Both Gach

    I don't see a lack of will or desire. I'm in agreement that his biggest issue right now seems to be a lack of confidence. I see a lot of "Unsure" in his game since the Big 10 season started. Somebody mentioned his rebounding (not a lot of thinking involved there, just go get the ball) is fine...

    Why the Gophers could be in line for a high seed in the NCAA Tournament

    I'm probably in the minority here, but man, where we get seeded at tournament time isn't even on my radar right now. I'm more focused putting together 5-6 really well played games in a row in the books, and making sure we're healthy and playing our best basketball in the last 2 weeks of the...

    That was a huge segment of productive minutes from Curry!

    Yup. Some people like to judge the entire book by the first 3 pages.

    This is what happens when you play defense! Yes, we got hot midway through the second half, but this game was won by playing great defense-PERIOD!

    Taking a knee at Iowa.

    I consider myself to be a pretty patriotic guy who loves America. With all of our issues, still the best country to live in. I'm also not offended by people who kneel during the anthem as a way to call attention to some of the problems we have in this country. I know the kneeling has no more...

    Michigan

    I think the King of "Lets not get too crazy about anything" was Tim Duncan. Maybe Gabe emulates that. I used to love it when a player used to make a nice play and act like "Look at Me, That was Totally Awesome", and then watch Duncan make a far greater play in a bigger moment and act like...

    A lot of times, that's pretty much it. Seen it a bunch of times. A player needs to be able to understand and apply offensive/defensive concepts and requirements consistently in practice before they get a lot of run in (non-blowout) game situations. Having not been at any practices, I'm...

    ***OFFICIAL - REAL U OF M (GOPHERS) @ FAUX U OF M (WOLVERINES) - GAME THREAD!!!***

    Michigan has played amazing perimeter defense. Early, they were really good at getting up in our guys face to prevent the 3 and make it tough to get a pass into the post, while making sure they forced any drive into help defense. They really took it to us out front. Gophers had a bad stretch...

    Mutaf to transfer

    It takes longer for the light to go on for some players than it does for others. Some players are more patient in the process to get to the point they need to be to play than others. Pretty tough to predict in the case of a player you've basically only seen on film and gotten to know on...

    ***OFFICIAL - REAL U OF M (GOPHERS) @ FAUX U OF M (WOLVERINES) - GAME THREAD!!!***

    I'm curious who we match up defensively against Livers and Wagner. Gabe probably takes one of them, with a bit of a size disadvantage. Gach probably gets the other, which may be a pretty important match-up. Thoughts?

    ***OFFICIAL Buckears AT MINNESOTA BOUNCE BACK IN-GAME THREAD!!!***

    I I don't know if I'd call it a lack of effort. Possibly more a lack of focus or maybe his offensive troubles have affected his defense (which should never happen, but it does at all levels of hoops). It could also be a huge jump in caliber of competition and he's just not adjusting as fast...

    ***OFFICIAL Buckears AT MINNESOTA BOUNCE BACK IN-GAME THREAD!!!***

    One of the best moments of the game for me came when Robbins went to the floor, diving for a loose ball near the 3-point line, then somehow got up and recovered enough to block a shot at the rim like 2-3 seconds after being prone on the floor! I thought that was pretty amazing for a big. I'm...

    Dang, I was kinda hoping they could hold OSU under 60 tonight.

    ***OFFICIAL MINNESOTA AT wisconsin NEW YEARS EVE IN-GAME THREAD!!!***

    My feeling is generally "If you think officiating is so awful, why not start doing it yourself and show the rest of us how much better you would be than the guys who went through the training and do it 50-100 times a year?". Sort of put your money where your mouth is, or don't complain about...

    Gophers entered this season with fresh faces. Now, they’re gelling, and that makes them dangerous

    Although Gabe has struggled from 3 this season and last, I'm not sure the extra 6-9 points per game he would provide by going 3 or 4 for 7 instead of 1-7 from 3 would actually make up for the 12-15 points he likely saves per game because of the on-ball and help-side team defense/positioning...

    Is Carr the best gopher this decade?

    On the flip side, which one would you take if you needed a defensive stop to win the game? I'm gonna be honest that I did not see enough games with them on the team to know which was a more capable defender.

    ***OFFICIAL #17 MICHIGAN STATE AT #21 MINNESOTA IN-GAME THREAD***

    Yep. Most coaches I know go with the idea that I find out what you can do by letting you show me every day in practice. If you can/will do what I need consistently in practice daily, then I can be pretty sure of what I'm going to get from you in a game situation. One of the concerns you hear...
