About the only thing Richard Pitino could confirm Tuesday about the Gophers men’s basketball schedule is that his team will open the season next Wednesday.

Pitino wouldn’t even say the opener was against Wisconsin-Green Bay, which has already been announced officially by UWGB.

“I don’t even know what time we play,” Pitino said during a video conference call.

The fact the Gophers are healthy enough to play next week is a positive sign, considering they were on pause for team activities just last week due to COVID-19.

“We’re not rushing guys back,” Pitino said. “We’re going to make sure we stick to every single health and safety protocol, regardless of who we play and when we play. That’s the most important thing.”

Go Gophers!!
