Minnesota Golden Gophers Win Puerto Rico Tip-Off Tournament
The Minnesota Golden Gophers defeated the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers, North Carolina Tar Heels, and West Virginia Mountaineers en route to winning the Puerto Rico Tip-Off. The Minnesota Gophers are now 5-0 and are turning heads in the country. Trevor Mbakwe was named MVP and All-Tournament, as well as Blake Hoffarber. This team is deep and talented. In my opinion, they could challenge for the Big Ten title. When the new rankings get released this week, expect the Minnesota Gophers to be somewhere between 15 to 25. It's premature, but CBS Sports has Minnesota as high as #7. Congratulations to the Minnesota Gophers basketball team!
