per Rand Ball:

2004-05 Gophers men’s basketball: The 2003-04 Gophers went 3-13 in Big Ten play, and that was with conference freshman of the year Kris Humphries leading the Big Ten in both scoring in rebounding. He declared for the NBA Draft after one year and was a first-round pick.

Under those circumstances, few would have predicted Minnesota — led by the less-heralded Vincent Grier — would rebound to go 10-6 in conference play and make the NCAA tournament in 2004-05.
