per Marcus:

When Gophers guard Jamal Mashburn Jr. looked up at his father in the Williams Arena crowd Saturday afternoon, he didn't need to get much more than a nod to turn his game up a notch.

"We have our own signals ever since AAU ball," said former NBA and Kentucky standout Jamal Mashburn Sr., who was in attendance for his son's game for the first time this season.

The young Mashburn's performance ended up being one of the only bright spots Saturday. He scored a team-high 16 points in Minnesota's 94-63 loss to No. 5-ranked Illinois.

"I played quite a bit of basketball in my day, so it wasn't about the loss," Mashburn Sr. said. "It's about the experience for him. He's getting very valuable experience playing alongside Marcus [Carr]."


Go Gophers!!

Did anyone else worry, looking at his dad, that he might take his son away from us after watching such a pathetic game?

5 turnovers and poor defense ... praise for only one end of the court creates what

no
Mash Sr. wasn't exactly known for being a stopper. More of a launcher.
