Oh, the sweet satisfaction of cracking into the Top 25 in men’s basketball — only to take a tough loss later in the week. So it goes for the Gophers men’s basketball team, ranked No. 24 on Monday only to get pounded 65-47 Wednesday night at Michigan State.

So far, the only Big Ten losses for the Gophers have come against the Spartans. The tough overtime loss in the conference opener (when the Spartans were without freshman star Miles Bridges) was bad enough. The latest loss, with Bridges back in the lineup, was a different kind of battle, but it still counts the same in the loss column.

The Gophers were ranked for the first time in nearly four years, and it looks like that party will come to an abrupt end. Maybe there’s a good reason why Coach Richard Pitino doesn’t care about these kinds of numbers.


Go Gophers!!
