“Our goals and philosophies at Minnesota are simple… We want to win championships and we want to accomplish that by working hard. Offensively, we push the ball up the court, utilize the three point shot and implement a motion offense. Our freelancing style of play allows our players to take advantage of individual matchups. When executed correctly, our style nets high scoring results.”

Tubby In The Community

Coach Smith has made numerous appearances in the Twin Cities during his tenure at the University of Minnesota and is one of the area’s most requested speakers. Smith has made over 75 speaking engagements or appearances since June 2007.

Smith was honored at a 2008 Minnesota Timberwolves game for his contributions to Coaches vs. Cancer.

The Tubby Smith Foundation Shortly after accepting the job as head basketball coach at Kentucky, Tubby Smith started a foundation to assist underprivileged children. He has since conducted annual auctions, golf tournaments and other events while also accepting donations from companies and corporations throughout the Bluegrass. Now in its ninth year, the Foundation has donated over $2.3 million to over 100 charities. In 2001, the United Way created a new award – The Donna and Tubby Smith Community Spirit Award. The Smiths were the first recipients of the award for their generous contributions. In 2001, their $125,000 donation made them the highest individual contributor to the United Way in the state of Kentucky. In January 2004, the foundation teamed with Dell computers, along with several area businesses, to develop “Tubby’s Clubhouses.” The clubhouses hold refurbished Dell computers at community centers to serve at-risk middle school students through a 40-

hour after school program. Students are given computer training in an effort to help children succeed with increased life skills. There are currently seven Clubhouses in Lexington, one in Northern Kentucky and one soon to open in Owensboro. Tubby’s Clubhouse have graduated over 600 young people since its inception. Smith plans on developing Tubby’s Clubhouses in the Twin Cities metro area in the future.

GOPHER PROS Minnesota has long been a breeding ground for professional basketball players. From NBA Hall of Famer Kevin McHale to past stars Mychal Thompson, Lou Hudson, Archie Clark, Trent Tucker and Jim Brewer to current NBA veterans Kris Humphries, Joel Przybilla, Bobby Jackson, the Golden Gophers have been wellrepresented in the NBA annals.

Flip Saunders Mychal Thompson

J.B. Bickerstaff Archie Clark

Kevin McHale

Perhaps the most notable of Golden Gopher pros was Kevin McHale, who was named one of the 50 Greatest Players of All-Time after earning seven All-Star game invitations and helping the Boston Celtics to three NBA titles. Mychal Thompson, who was the first overall selection in the 1978 NBA Draft, had a successful 14-year NBA career and won two NBA titles with the Los Angeles Lakers. Lou Hudson spent 13 seasons in the NBA, was chosen to six All-Star games with the Atlanta Hawks and averaged more than 20 points per game in his career. Former Golden Gophers also continue to have a lasting impact on the NBA in coaching and in front office positions. McHale is the vice president of the Minnesota Timberwolves while three-time letterwinner Flip Saunders has spent 13 seasons as an NBA head coach in Minnesota and Detroit. Jim Brewer, an AllAmerican at Minnesota in 1973 and the second overall selection in the ’73 NBA Draft, has had a successful coaching career in the NBA, most recently as an assistant coach with the Boston Celtics.

Arena Prior To Completion

Inaugural Game [1928]

1930s Crowd


The University installed a brand new floor in the summer of 2009, replacing the original floor from 1928.

Whenever anyone asks me my favorite places, I always say I like the old ones. It just seems like there’s something about their character. It seems like the seats have witnessed everything, and it speaks to the mystique of the team and the university. The atmosphere isn’t plastic like the seats in a new arena. The old ones are steeped with tradition. You walk in and you think of all the great players that have played there. And that’s what leads a kid to want to come and play at Williams Arena. — BILL RAFTERY, National College Basketball Television Analyst

1959 Game

Steeped in history and tradition, Williams Arena is one of the greatest arenas in college basketball history. Originally opened in 1928, “The Barn” has undergone major renovations, making the arena not just one of the oldest and traditional buildings in the country, but one of the most complete and cutting-edge. During the summer of 2009, the original floor of the arena was replaced at a cost of approximately $600,000. The floor was extended as well and new baskets were purchased. In the winter of 2005, a state-of-the-art team lounge area was added, including several high definition televisions, a theater-style team film room, a coaches’ strategy room, computer lab, kitchen and large expansive lounge area. The area is complete with every amenity that a Gopher basketball player would need. In addition, the team’s training area, located down the hall from the locker room and team lounge area, was remodeled and expanded. In the summer of 1997, 21 luxury barn lofts above the second deck were built. The lofts offer a spectacular birds-eye view of the court with luxury amenities. The $2.3 million project added 304 seats to the capacity, raising it to 14,625. Following the 1991-92 season, the renovation of Williams Arena began as part of a $41 million project for on-campus sports facilities. The first phase was completed in time for the 1992-93 season opener. The Golden Gophers’ locker room, training room, spacious offices and team meeting rooms, are

now state-of-the-art. The locker room was named in honor of former Golden Gopher coach Ozzie Cowles through the more than $100,000 in gifts from many of his former players. Construction on what is now known as Williams Arena was started in 1927 and completed in 1928, when it was dedicated as the University of Minnesota Field House. It cost $650,000 and initially had a seating capacity of 14,100 with bleacher and standing room expansion to 16,000. The original building housed basketball and winter football practice facilities. When the basketball season was completed, the portable floor was taken out and replaced by a pair of tennis courts and an indoor track. Ohio State won the first basketball game held in the building, scoring a 42-40 double overtime victory over the Golden Gophers on Feb. 4, 1928. The building was remodeled in 1950. Renamed in honor of Dr. Henry L. Williams, U of M football coach from 1900 to 1921, it was divided into a hockey arena on one end and a basketball arena with a seating capacity of 18,025 on the other. From 1950 until 1971, it had the largest capacity of any collegiate basketball arena in the country. The capacity has been reduced to 14,625 in recent years due to renovation, fire-code restrictions and handicapped-seating construction. The east end addition is highlighted by the Williams Arena Club on the third floor. The Club overlooks the floor and can hold parties of up to 200 fans, adding another touch of class to an already classy arena. The second phase of the renovation project was completed during the summer of 1993. It included the installation of theater-style seats, the widening of con-

2003 Game

course areas and the addition of both concession areas and women’s restrooms. A large portion of the renovation was financed by private gifts, including those to the successful $5.5 million sports-facilities campaign, and by the generous participation of fans through the assured-seating program. The site of the 1951 NCAA Finals, “The Barn” can be a frightening venue for opponents. The raised floor, one of only a handful in the country, and the deafening roar of 14,000-plus fans unquestionably has something to do with it. Spectators need to only witness the atmosphere and feel the electricty in The Barn just prior to any Big Ten game to find enough evidence to support that fact. With sellout crowds cheering them on, the Golden Gophers have become very tough to beat at home in front of their loyal fans. The Golden Gophers suffered only two losing seasons at the Barn since the 1935-36 campaign. Minnesota was 13-5 at Williams Arena last season. The Golden Gophers’ overall record in “The Barn” stands at 694276 for a winning percentage of .715. A long and illustrious list of college basketball’s greatest players have run the Williams Arena hardwood through the years, and many memorable games have been contested within its hallowed walls. The historic arena is among the finest in college basketball and enable that mystique to live on for many years to come. Williams Arena is truly what college basketball is all about.

Charlie & Kathy Cunningham Locker Room

I will never forget running onto the floor of Williams Arena for the first time. Our locker room was down by the tunnel. I opened the door and there was a buzz and I did not know where it was coming from so I went back in and opened the door again. Then I realized that the buzz was the crowd upstairs. I ran out there to warm up and was in shock. It dawned on me that you could put the entire town I grew up in that arena and still have seats left over. — KEVIN McHALE

GAME DAY

When it comes to excitement, drama and the electricity of athletic competition, there is nothing better than NCAA Basketball. It doesn’t get any better than the elevated hardwood of Williams Arena for gameday excitement. The atmosphere is unbelievable. Some of the finest basketball in the nation is displayed on a stage three feet off the ground in front of 14,000-plus screaming fans. The action is just a handshake away and the feeling is hard to put into words.

Williams Arena, “The Barn,” has been the hallowed home of Golden Gopher basketball for 80 years. During that span, the Maroon and Gold has carved a .715 home winning percentage. Long thought of as one of the toughest arenas in the country for visitors, it provides the ultimate home court advantage. The fans come out in full force for every game. Nearly 200,000 fans per year have come through the gate every season for the past 30 years. Williams Arena was the largest collegiate basketball arena in the country from 1950 until 1971, before renovations reduced the capacity from its original high of 18,025 to its current total of 14,625. The excitement of Big Ten basketball at Williams Arena is seen across the country. Almost every Golden Gopher game at Williams Arena is televised and can be seen anywhere in the United States. From CBS to to ESPN and ESPN2, to Big Ten Network telecasts, when the Golden Gophers play at Williams Arena it can be seen just about anywhere. And it’s not just the building, it’s the people who fill it. Minneapolis/St. Paul is a major league community with major professional sports teams. The Twin Cities has been host to the Super Bowl, the Final Four, the World Series, and the NBA All-Star game just to name a few. But in the end, if you have a seat at Williams Arena for Golden Gopher Basketball, you have the hottest ticket in town!

Gopher involvement in the CHAMPS/Life Skills Program helps student-athletes enhance the quality of their experience here within the university setting. We are also supplied with instructional materials and supplemental resources which support our student-athletes' development within the CHAMPS/Life Skills Commitment Statements’ five key areas: academic excellence, athletic excellence, personal development, career development, and community service.

MINNESOTA

A world-class university — known globally as a leader in teaching, research and public service, the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities consistently ranks among the top six public research universities in the nation. More than 160 bachelor’s degrees, 150 master’s degrees and 100 doctoral degrees make the University one of the most comprehensive institutions in the country. Many of the programs are recognized as national and international leaders. Also a thriving center for culture and the arts, The “U” features outstanding galleries, museums, concerts, theater productions and public lectures. Add in the excitement of Big Ten Athletics, and the University of Minnesota has something for everyone. The University community is a broad mix of ethnic backgrounds, interests and cultures. Students come from all 50 states and more than 100 countries. Many small communities of students, faculty and staff help to create a welcoming feeling on campus. The campus in Minneapolis is located just a few minutes east of downtown. Nestled along the bluffs of the Mississippi River, buildings in Minneapolis range from the ultramodern Weisman Art Museum to the classic and stately Northrop Memorial Auditorium. A few miles to the east in St. Paul, rolling hills and quiet lawns create a more rural setting. The Minneapolis and St. Paul parts of the campus are connected by a convenient campus shuttle system. The University of Minnesota also provides a life beyond the campus like few other Big Ten universities can. The dynamic communities of Minneapolis and St. Paul offer something for everyone—a nationally-recognized arts and theater community, a thriving entertainment industry, a host of Fortune 500 companies, four glorious seasons of outdoor recreation, exciting professional sports, shopping and restaurants for every taste, all located close to campus. Founded in 1851, seven years before the territory of Minnesota became a state, the University is the largest in the state and touches the lives of thousands of people every day through its teaching, research and service.

TUBBY SMITH O

HEAD COACH n March 23, 2007 Tubby Smith was announced as the 16th head basketball coach of the Minnesota Golden Gophers Men’s Basketball program. One of the most respected coaches in the country and a national champion was coming to Gold Country to lead the Gopher program. The excitement of bringing one of the top coaches in the country to the University of Minnesota, was only matched by the satisfaction of welcoming one of the classiest individuals in the world of college basketball today to the Maroon and Gold. Tubby Smith has now been on campus for just over two years but he has already put a huge stamp on the Goplden Gopher basketball progam. Coach Smith's second season on the sidelines of Williams Arena will be remembered as the season the Gophers made it back to the dance, as Minnesota made its 11th overall NCAA Tournament appearance and its first since 2005. Minnesota began the 2008-09 season by hosting the NABC Classic at historic Williams Arena, part of Smith's duties as acting President of the NABC. Three wins in the classic were followed by nine more, as the Gophers sprinted to a 12-0 non-conference record, the fifth-best start in program history. The team went on to win nine games during the Big Ten Conference schedule, added an opening round victory in the conference tournament and was awarded a 10-seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Gophers were defeated in the opening round of the tournament but an overall record of 22-11 meant that Smith had led the University of Minnesota basketball team to consecutive 20-win seasons for the first time in school history. Also, it was just the ninth time in school history that the program reached the 20-win plateau. Smith's two-year Minnesota record sits at 42-25 (.627) while his career record moved to 429-170 (.716). In his first season at the “U”, Smith took a team that had won nine games the season before to a 20-14 record. The Gophers finished sixth in the Big Ten Conference at 8-10 and were the sixth seed in the Big Ten Tournament. The 11-game improvement in the win column from the 2006-07 season is the largest season turnaround in school history and tied for the second-best turnaround in Division I in 2007-08. Also, the five-win improvement in conference play was the second biggest Big Ten turnaround in 2007-08. Smith came to Minnesota with a reputation for winning at the highest level not matched by many coaches in the country. In his 18-year career, he has claimed a National Title (Kentucky in 199798), made four “Elite Eight appearances”, nine “Sweet Sixteen” appearances and has posted 16 straight 20-win seasons. His 407 wins entering the 2008-09 season was the sixth-best record of any head coach in their first 17 years in NCAA Division I basketball, joining such names as Roy Williams, Denny Crum, Jim Boeheim, Nolan Richardson and Jerry Tarkanian. On five different occasions, Smith has been named a conference coach of the year (1994 & 95 in the Missouri Valley Conference and 1998, 2003 & 2005 in the SEC). He has also collected national

coach of the year honors on three different occasions (1998, 2003 & 2005). Not only has Smith had elite success, but he has prepared his players to have all the skills necessary to make the jump to the next level. Smith has sent 18 players to the NBA during his coaching career. That list includes 2008 NBA Champion Rajon Rondo of the Boston Celtics, current Milwaukee Buck Jodie Meeks, Portland Trail Blazer Michael Ruffin, Houston Rocket Chuck Hayes, former 10-year veteran Shandon Anderson, Charlotte Bobcat Nazr Mohammed, Detroit Piston Tayshaun Prince, former eight-year veteran Scott Padgett, current Miami Heat Jamaal Magloire, Atlanta Hawk Randolph Morris, Golden State Warrior Kelenna Azubuike and San Antonio Spur guard Keith Bogans. Other Smith players to reach the NBA include Shea Seals, Wayne Turner, Erik Daniels, Gerald Fitch, Jeff Sheppard and Michael Bradley. That opportunity to play in the NBA was particularly sweet for Rondo, Prince and Anderson, who all realized the dream of winning NBA titles. Rondo was the starting point guard for the Celtics as they made their championship run in 2008 while Prince was an integral part of the 2004 NBA Champion Detroit Pistons. Anderson was part of a veteran group of players on the Miami Heat who claimed the 2006 NBA Championship. Nine of the players Smith has sent to the NBA heard their names called on draft day. Rondo, Magloire, Mohammed, Padgett and Prince were each first round draft picks, while Anderson, Bogans, Meeks and Ruffin each went in the second round. Prince was also a member of the United States basketball team that won a gold medal at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China. Bogans, Padgett and Prince all received All-American honors during their careers at Kentucky. Prince was also named the 2001 SEC Player of the Year, while Bogans claimed the honors in 2003. Seals was also named an AllAmerican during the 1996-97 season for Tulsa. Prior to arriving in Big Ten Country, Smith spent 10 seasons (1997-2007) in the Southeastern Conference as the head coach at the University of Kentucky. During his tenure with the Wildcats, Smith led Kentucky to the 1998 National championship, four “Elite Eight” appearances, five SEC titles, five SEC Tournament titles and six “Sweet Sixteen” finishes. Smith also led the Wildcats to an overall record of 263-83 record for a winning percentage of .760. In his 10 seasons with Kentucky, he averaged over 26 wins per season. During that time, Smith was 120-40 in SEC play for a winning percentage of .750. His 120 wins were 14 more then any other program in the SEC had during Smith’s decade of dominance at Kentucky. He also finished in sole posses-

coaching staff sion or tied for first in the SEC East in seven of the 10 years he coached the Wildcats. Smith was 24-7 in SEC Tournament games for a winning percentage of .774. He made history in the 2002-03 season when he led his Kentucky squad to a 16-0 record in SEC regular-season play and guided them to the SEC Tournament Championship. It marked the first time since 1952 that an SEC squad had completed both the conference regular season and tournament without a loss. After Kentucky had won a National title in 1996 and finished runner up in 1997, Smith took over a squad that had lost six players over two seasons to the NBA and other key players to graduation. That season, he guided Kentucky to a 354 record and a National Title becoming the first coach since Cincinnati’s Ed Jucker in 1961 to win a national title in the first year at a school. Smith also stamped the trademark toughness that his teams have been known for that season, guiding Kentucky to double-digit comebacks against Duke in the “Elite Eight” and Utah in the National Championship on the way to claiming the National title. Smith’s first year at Georgia was not as publicized, but no less remarkable than his first at Kentucky. In the 1995-96 season, his first at Georgia, Smith guided the Bulldogs to their first NCAA Tournament appearance in five years. Georgia defeated Clemson and No. 1 seeded Purdue, before falling to eventual National Runner-Up Syracuse on a last-second shot in the “Sweet Sixteen”. It was the furthest Georgia had advanced in the NCAA Tournament since 1983. Smith also guided the Bulldogs to a 21-10 overall record and second place in the SEC East at 97. In his first season at Tulsa, Smith led the Golden Hurricanes to a 17-13 overall record and brought them within three points of making their first NCAA Tournament since 1987, as Tulsa fell to SW Missouri State in the MVC Championship game 71-68. Despite all of the great first impressions Smith has made in his career, none were grander then his first season at Kentucky. When Smith took the reins for the 1997-98 season, he inherited a balanced roster loaded with role players. An early loss to Arizona dampened expectations. Three losses at Rupp Arena followed. Kentucky then rebounded to win the 1998 SEC Eastern Division title and the overall SEC crown. One week later, the Wildcats rolled through the SEC Tournament in Atlanta with decisive wins over Arkansas and South Carolina. “Tubby Ball,” a system of solid defense and rebounding, combined with his chess-match style of coaching, was on display. As a No. 2 seed in the 1998 NCAA Tournament’s South Region, Kentucky cruised to the regional final to face top-seeded Duke with a third-consecutive trip to the Final Four hanging in the balance. The Blue Devils grabbed an 18-point lead in the first half and held a 17-point lead midway through the second half. When Smith went to a smaller lineup to counter the quicker Duke players, Kentucky stormed back to win, 86-84. The Wildcats then rallied from a five-point halftime deficit against Stanford in the national semifinals before winning in overtime, 8685. Many pegged the contest as one of the most well coached games in the entire tournament. Two days later, Utah led by 10, 41-31, at halftime of the National Championship. No team had ever come from behind by more than eight points in the championship game, until Smith’s Wildcats pulled off the trick. The game plan wore out the Utes, and Tubby’s “Comeback Cats” rallied to win, 78-69. Smith

TUBBY SMITH FOUNDATION Shortly after accepting the job as head basketball coach at Kentucky, Tubby Smith started a foundation to assist underprivileged children. He has since conducted annual auctions, golf tournaments and other events while also accepting donations from companies and corporations throughout the Bluegrass. Now in its ninth year, the Foundation has donated over $2.3 million to over 100 charities. In 2001, the United Way created a new award – The Donna and Tubby Smith Community Spirit Award. The Smiths were the first recipients of the award for their generous contributions. In 2001, their $125,000 donation made them the highest individual contributor to the United Way in the state of Kentucky. In January 2004, the foundation teamed with Dell computers, along with several area businesses, to develop “Tubby’s Clubhouses.” The clubhouses hold refurbished Dell computers at community centers to serve at-risk mid-

dle school students through a 40-hour after school program. Students are given computer training in an effort to help children succeed with increased life skills. There are currently seven Clubhouses in Lexington, one in Northern Kentucky and one soon to open in Owensboro. Tubby’s Clubhouse have graduated over 600 young people since its inception. Smith plans on developing Tubby’s Clubhouses in the Twin Cities metro area in the future.

accomplished the unexpected. He led the Wildcats to their second title in three years. To cap off his spectacular first year at Kentucky, Smith was named National Coach of the Year by Basketball Weekly and Co-SEC Coach of the Year by The Associated Press. The New York Athletic Club also presented Smith with the prestigious Winged Foot Award given to the coach of the national champions after each season. In the off-season, he picked up the Parent of the Year Award by Parent Magazine, the Victor Award by the Black Coaches Association and was even voted the “Sexiest Male Public Figure” in a reader’s vote in a local magazine. The honors culminated when he was named the Kentucky Sportsman of the Year for 1998 in a statewide media vote, edging out Kentucky quarterback Tim Couch. After earning high acclaim by winning the national title in his first season, Smith guided a team comprised of eight freshmen and sophomores to within eight points of Kentucky’s fourth consecutive Final Four appearance. Kentucky’s triumphs in the 1998-99 season included six wins over teams ranked in the top 11 with victories over No. 2 Maryland and No. 4 Auburn, and 13 wins over teams in the NCAA Tournament. When March arrived, Smith’s squad went to work, winning its seventh SEC Tournament title in eight years. The 2001-02 Kentucky team began with a preseason No. 4 national ranking, but the Wildcats battled an inordinate amount of injuries and suspensions before being eliminated by Maryland, the eventual national champion, in the East Region Semifinals. In 2003, a year in which Smith’s coaching ranked among the very best in the 100 years of Kentucky basketball, the accolades arrived in a landslide. Smith snared all seven of the national honors recognized by the NCAA - AP, USBWA, Naismith, Basketball Times, The Sporting News, NABC, and CBS/Chevrolet. He became the first coach to sweep the list since Indiana’s Bobby Knight captured all five in 1975. For good measure, Smith added honors from ESPN, Foxsports.com, the Black Coaches Association and College Sports Television. Kentucky established the nation’s longest win streak in seven years as it rattled off 26 victories in a row, highlighted by a sweep of the SEC regular-season slate and tournament play (19-0). His Wildcats finished No. 1 in the final Associated Press poll and Smith swept SEC and National Coach of the Year honors. Kentucky ended the season in the Elite Eight with a 32-4 record, becoming just the 11th team in school history to top the 30-win mark. In 2004, the Wildcats posted a 27-5 record while winning a sixth SEC Eastern Division title, another SEC Tournament championship and the school’s ninth No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament, all while spending nearly the entire season ranked among the nation’s top 10. Smith’s 2005 Kentucky squad won the school’s 43rd SEC championship while advancing to the NCAA’s Elite Eight. He guided the club, which finished 28-6 and ranked No. 5 in the final coaches’ poll, to a 14-2 league record despite a roster that consisted primarily of underclassmen, including four fresh-

coaching staff TUBBY SMITH AMONG GREATS The start to Tubby Smith’s head coaching career is one of the most impressive in college basketball history. Smith ranks among some of the finest coaches in numerous categories, including victories and NCAA appearances.

men among the top nine. Smith also totaled 100 wins quicker than any other Kentucky coach except Hall of Famer Adolph Rupp, reaching the plateau in 130 games. In 2005, he joined Roy Williams, Nolan Richardson, Denny Crum and Jim Boeheim as the fifth head coach to win 365 games in 15 seasons or less. Consistent success has become the standard throughout the career of Tubby Smith. In addition to taking the reigns from Rick Pitino and successfully navigating the Kentucky program throughout his 10 years, he also guided Tulsa and Georgia into highly successful programs. Prior to Kentucky, he spent two seasons at Georgia, where he coached the Bulldogs to a 45-19 (70.3%) record and the first back-to-back seasons of 20 wins or more in school history. Before achieving that success at Georgia, he coached four seasons at Tulsa, guiding the Golden Hurricane to Sweet 16 appearances his last two seasons. The 1996-97 season at Georgia was one his best coaching efforts. After losing eight seniors and all five starters from the previous year’s “Sweet Sixteen” team, Smith led the youthful Bulldogs to a 24-9 record, equaling the school record for most wins in a season. Georgia finished third in the SEC with a 10-6 record, and brought the Bulldogs to the SEC Tournament Championship game for the first time since 1988. Georgia finished the year ranked 17th in the final AP poll and earned a No. 3 seed in the Southeast Regional. Before arriving in Georgia, Smith led Tulsa to a 79-43 (64.8%) record and won consecutive Missouri Valley Conference regularseason titles in 1994 and ‘95. When he took over the Golden Hurricane in 1991, he had just five returning players. With a quick injection of new talent, he completed his first season by coaching Tulsa to the MVC Championship Game after finishing fourth during the regular season. Following a 15-14 record in 1993, Tulsa won more than 20 games in each of Smith’s last two seasons, captured first-place honors in the MVC with identical 15-3 marks and made consecutive trips to the Sweet 16. He earned the MVC’s Coach of the Year award in both 1994 and ‘95. In his final year at Tulsa, Smith led the Golden Hurricane to a 24-8 record, marking what was then the third-highest victory total in school history, and a No. 15 ranking in the final CNN/USA Today poll. Much of his success as a collegiate head coach has been measured by his teams’ performances in the NCAA Tournament. Smith’s 1994 Tulsa team upset UCLA in the tourney’s first round before knocking off Oklahoma State. In ‘95, the Hurricane blew away Big-Ten power Illinois to open March Madness. His postseason success continued at Georgia where the Bulldogs defeated Clemson to open the ‘96 tournament before upsetting the top-seeded Purdue Boilermakers. Considered by many as one of the nation’s top coaches, Smith was selected to help coach the 2000 U.S. Olympic Basketball Team in Sydney. He served as an assistant to Houston Rockets coach Rudy Tomjanovich as the Americans withstood high expectations to capture the gold medal. Coach Smith’s national presence is apparent off-the-court as well, as he currently serves as the president of the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) and is also on the NCAA Committee to study basketball issues, joining Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski and Oregon’s Ernie Kent. Also, in June of 2000 Smith spoke at a Congressional hearing on the issue of gambling in college sports. Smith’s first impact on the Kentucky program came nine years before his national championship. When Pitino took over the Wildcats’ program in ‘89, he sought an assistant coach to recruit the South, and one name continued to surface -- Tubby Smith. Smith left his assistant coaching position at South Carolina and joined Pitino’s first staff, which had the dubious honor of rebuilding a UK program that had been rocked by NCAA probation and player defections. With only eight scholarship student-athletes, none taller than 6-7, the staff molded the Wildcats into winners, exceeding expectations to record a 14-14 mark. The following year, with Smith promoted to associate coach and Kentucky still on probation, the Wildcats earned a 22-6 record, a final ranking of ninth in the AP poll, and an SEC-best 14-4 record. The members of those first two staffs that Pitino assembled formed an impressive group of future head coaches. Smith served alongside Ralph Willard - currently an assistant coach for Pitino at Louisville, Arizona State’s Herb Sendek, Florida’s Billy Donovan and Bernadette Mattox, former coach of the Kentucky women’s basketball team and current assistant coach for the WNBA’s Connecticut Sun, while the Wildcats began the rebuilding effort that culminated with two championships in three seasons. Before coming to Kentucky in 1989, Smith was an assistant coach for George Felton (a former UK assistant - 1998-00) at South Carolina, where the Gamecocks notched a 53-35 record during his three years. Prior to his stop in Columbia, Smith served as assistant coach at Virginia Commonwealth for seven years, including six seasons under J.D. Barnett. In those seven seasons, VCU registered a 144-64 record, won three Sun Belt Conference Championships and made five NCAA Tournament appearances. Under Barnett, Smith learned the principles of his ball-line defense, a defense that

in three of his first four years at Kentucky held opponents to their lowest field goal percentages since 1962. Smith began his coaching career at Great Mills High School in Great Mills, Md., where he was head coach for four years and compiled a 46-36 record. His next stop came at Hoke County High School in Raeford, N.C., where he recorded a 28-18 mark in two seasons. A 1973 graduate of High Point (N.C.) College, Smith was an all-conference performer as a senior. He played under three different head coaches at High Point, including Barnett, and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in health and physical education. Smith is the sixth of 16 children raised on a rural farm in southern Maryland. He and his wife Donna, have three sons and a daughter-in-law: Orlando (G.G.), who is an assistant coach at Loyola College in Maryland and his wife Lorie, who is a licensed Pediatrician in the State of Maryland; Saul, who is an assistant coach on the Minnesota coaching staff; and Brian, an Ole Miss graduate, is presently working as an assistant athletic director and assistant boys basketball coach at Windermere Prep Academy in Windermere, Fla. Smith has always been very active in the community. The Tubby Smith Foundation, which he established to assist underprivileged children, has raised over $1.5 million in the past five years. Tubby’s Clubhouses revitalized community centers throughout Lexington by providing computers and training to hundreds of school-age children. In the summer of 2001, the United Way created a new award - The Donna and Tubby Smith Community Spirit Award. The Smith’s were the inaugural recipient of the award for their generous contributions. In 2001, their $125,000 donation made them the highest individual contributor to the United Way in the state of Kentucky. The award is given annually to those who effectively advance mobilization or collaboration to achieve positive impact that benefits the Central Kentucky community atlarge.

Coach Smith From A Player’s Perspective

“Coach Smith is a great motivator. He knows how to get the most out

of his players and how to get them ready to play hard. A Tubby Smith

coached team is always going to be disciplined and solid defensively. He doesn’t just care about his players on the court, he cares about

them off the court as well and tries to help each player become a better person, not just a better basketball player.”

— Kelenna Azubuike, Golden State Warriors “Coach Smith is the only reason I chose the college institution I did. It is one of the best decisions I have made in my life. Coach Smith

stressed that it’s just as important to focus on your academics as

much as you do your work on the court. He taught us that in order to

accomplish your goals you have to put in the time, work and effort.” — Chuck Hayes, Houston Rockets

Smith’s 14 consecutive NCAA appearances ranks as the third-most among active coaches, trailing only Arizona’s Lute Olsen (23) and North Carolina’s Roy Williams (18). He ranks in a tie for fifth all-time with the 14 straight NCAA berths.

Jirsa’s Bulldogs put together a 4-1 record in the postseason with wins over Iowa, North Carolina State, Vanderbilt and Fresno State in March 1998. In his six combined seasons as an assistant at Tulsa and Georgia, Jirsa helped four consecutive teams win at least 21 games and reach the NCAA Tournament each season. The first three of those – two at Tulsa and one at Georgia – reached the Sweet Sixteen. He also coached Jumaine Jones, who was a first round NBA Draft pick of the Atlanta Hawks in 1999. Prior to coming to Minnesota, Jirsa spent four seasons as head coach at Marshall University.

Prior to arriving in Minnesota, Taylor spent seven seasons as an assistant at the University of Louisville, four under Rick Pitino and three under Denny Crum. While with the Louisville program, Taylor earned the reputation as one of the nation’s top recruiters. He helped the Cardinals land a top-five recruiting class in 2001 under Pitino that included McDonald’s All-American Carlos Hurt. Taylor was also heavily responsible for the recruitment of Reece Gaines to Louisville. Gaines was a four-year starter and was named third team AllAmerican as a senior. Gaines was the 15th pick of the 2003 NBA Entry Draft. In 2005, Louisville returned to the Final Four with many of Taylor’s recruits, including Francisco Garcia. Garcia was then selected at the 23rd pick in the 2005 Draft by Sacramento. Before joining the Louisville staff in 1998, Taylor was an assistant coach at the University of Pittsburgh (1997-98) and briefly at the University of Wyoming (1998). Before Taylor began his coaching career, he averaged 3.1 points, 1.2 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game with the NBA’s New York Knicks in 1982-83 after being selected by the team in the second round (33rd overall) of the 1982 NBA Draft.

Recap: Behind a career-high 17 points from sophomore point guard Al Nolen, the Gophers opened up their regular season slate with a 76-51 victory over Concordia-St. Paul in game one of the NABC Classic Friday night at Williams Arena. During the Howard Pulley Summer League, Nolen- who averaged 4.3 points in 22 minutes of action last season - started demonstrating his new found offensive confidence. But Nolen truly showcased his scoring ability to the announced crowd of 11,818 Nov. 14. Moments into the contest, the 6-1 guard had already surpassed his scoring average from a season ago. Nolen, who hit 19 three-pointers in 33 games last season, hit back-to-back three-pointers to start Friday night’s game. And, after hitting five of his first six shots, Nolen winded up scoring 11 of Minnesota’s first 18 points. Despite Nolen’s early scoring outburst, the Gophers had to work for separation from Concordia-St. Paul. With junior guard Lawrence Westbrook firing on all cylinders and senior forward Jamal Abu-Shamala finding his offensive game, Minnesota built a 17-point advantage. Westbrook, Minnesota’s leading scorer from a season ago, scored all 10 of his first-half points in the final 9:41 of half. And with Abu-Shamala adding eight first half points combined with the Gophers ball-line defense forcing poor shooting and miscues from CSP (28.6 percent shooting and 10 turnovers), Minnesota went into the locker room with a 39-25 lead. A three-point play by sophomore guard Blake Hoffarber moments into the second half opened the Gophers lead to 46-26 2:48 into the final half. The Golden Bears got to within 11 after a three by Heiman with just over seven minutes remaining. Heiman finished with 26 points, but it wasn’t enough to get any closer. The Gophers held CSP to 30.8 percent shooting in the second stanza and did enough to stabilize during the final minutes of regulation, eventually building a game-ending 25-point lead.

Recap: Former Gopher standout Mychal Thompson still holds the Minnesota men’s basketball record for blocked shots in a game with 12 against Ohio State in 1976, but freshman center Colton Iverson gave him a run for his money Nov. 15 as the Gophers beat Bowling Green 68-61 in front of 11,833 at Williams Arena. Iverson recorded nine blocked shots – the third-best individual performance in team history - freshman power forward Ralph Sampson III added another four, and Minnesota set a program record for blocked shots in a game with 17 on the second night of the NABC Classic. Junior shooting guard Lawrence Westbrook added a career-high 20 points and sophomore point guard Al Nolen recorded career highs in assists (9) and steals (5) to help Minnesota improve to 2-0 on the young season. With Iverson seemingly deflecting every shot the Falcons attempted inside in the first half and Nolen’s active hands helping to stifle Bowling Green on the perimeter, Minnesota limited the Falcons to just eight first half field goals and 25.8 percent shooting from the field. Led by 13 first-half points from Westbrook, Minnesota’s returning leading scorer from a year ago, the Gophers went on a 27-8 run and built a 20point first-half lead. The Gophers took a 36-22 advantage into the locker room, but the Falcons – fresh off a buzzer-beating overtime win over Georgia State Friday night showed early in the second half that they wouldn’t be friendly visitors to the Barn. Slowly but surely Bowling Green cut into Minnesota’s advantage in the second stanza. And after eight second-half points by sophomore guard Joe Jakubowski – who went scoreless in the first half one night after recording a career-high 24 points – the Falcons cut the Gophers’ lead to seven, 47-40, with just under 10 minutes to play in regulation. The Gophers momentarily extended their lead to 12 following a three by sophomore guard Blake Hoffarber, but the Falcons were far from finished. After going neck-and-neck with the Gophers for much of the second half, two free throws by Larson trimmed the Gophers lead to three with just three minutes left in regulation. Recognizing a play Bowling Green had run earlier in the game, Westbrook jumped into the passing lane, intercepting a pass and taking it coast to coast for a layup that put Minnesota ahead 59-54. Westbrook added five more free throws in the final minute of regulation to seal things for the Maroon and Gold.

Recap: The Minnesota men’s basketball team was crowned champions of the 2008 NABC Classic after completing an undefeated weekend with a 60-52 victory over Georgia State in front of an announced crowd of 11,882 Sunday night at Williams Arena. Junior shooting guard Lawrence Westbrook scored a team-high 15 points and was named tournament MVP. Freshman power forward Ralph Sampson III and sophomore shooting guard Blake Hoffarber added eight a piece. Sophomore point guard Al Nolen, who joined Westbrook on the NABC Classic All-Tournament Team, finished with five steals and six assists. Joe Dukes paced the Panthers with 12 points and five assists. One night after notching a career-high 20 points against Bowling Green, Westbrook helped the Gophers improve to 3-0 on the young season. Nine firsthalf points from the Chandler, Ariz. native propelled Minnesota to a 17-point first half lead. For Minnesota, Sunday’s contest must have felt eerily similar to Saturday night’s 68-61 win over Bowling Green. In that game, the Gophers built a 20point first half advantage only to see their lead dwindle to three in the final minutes of regulation. Still, in both weekend games, the Gophers were able to hold on and keep their record perfect. From the onset, Minnesota was the aggressor Sunday night. Eight minutes into the contest, the Gophers built a 15-6 advantage after a three by Hoffarber . And, after forcing 11 Georgia State turnovers in the half and holding the Panthers to 16.7 percent from the perimeter (1-of-6), four straight points by Sampson III with 1:10 left in the half put Minnesota ahead 35-18. A three by Panthers’ guard Leonard Mendez right before the end of the half cut the Gophers’ lead to 35-23 at the break. And, after opening the half on a 6-0 run, Georgia State was able to trim Minnesota’s once 17-point lead to six at 35-29. A three-pointer by junior forward Travis Busch made it 40-29 with 14:47 left in regulation. But with the Gophers scoring only six points in the first 10 minutes of the second stanza, the maroon and gold couldn’t separate themselves from the Panthers on the scoreboard. After exchanging baskets midway through the final half, the Panthers got to within five, 50-45, following a three by Xavier Hansbro with 3:32 to play. But that was as close as Georgia State would come.

Recap: Sophomore forward Paul Carter connected on a go-ahead layup with 18.9 seconds left in regulation as the Gophers overcame a six-point halftime deficit to beat Colorado State 72-71 Nov. 22 at Moby Arena in Fort Collins, Colo. Sophomore shooting guard Blake Hoffarber hit five three-pointers and led the Gophers with 20 points in their first road win of the young season. Sophomore point guard Al Nolen added 16 points on 6-of-14 shooting and Carter added eight points and four rebounds in Minnesota’s nail-biting victory. Andy Ogide and Andre McFarland led Colorado State with 16 points apiece. Eden Prairie, Minn. native Dan Vandervieren added a career-high 15 points for the Rams. The Rams jumped on the Gophers early, running out to a 23-11 advantage 12 minutes into the game. Minnesota, however, quickly got back into the contest thanks to the hot hand of Hoffarber. Hoffarber posted 17 first-half points for the Maroon and Gold and, after rallying off 10 straight points, propelled Minnesota on a 14-4 run that cut Colorado State’s lead to 27-25. Implementing full-court pressure to start the second stanza, Minnesota forced three-straight CSU turnovers and used a 7-0 run to take a 39-38 lead, its first advantage of the game. After trading baskets for much of the second half, Minnesota gained a bit of breathing room when a layup by forward Travis Busch put the Gophers up 66-60 with under seven minutes to go. With the score deadlocked, 70-70, with under a minute remaining in regulation Ogide connected on one of two free throws to put the Rams ahead. But on the Gophers' final offensive possession of the game, Nolen drove to the middle of the lane and passed to forward Damian Johnson on the right post. Johnson, playing in his first game of the season, then used a wrap-around pass to find Carter - positioned on the left block - for the eventual game-winning layup. The Rams had a chance to win the game at the buzzer but couldn't convert. Johnson, playing in his first game back from a broken hand, rejected Marcus Walker's jumper with seven seconds remaining but, after a scramble for the ball, Colorado State had the possession arrow in its favor on a jump ball with 0.9 left. McFarland was open on the left baseline but missed an 18foot jumper at the buzzer, persevering Minnesota’s first road win of the season.

Recap: Behind a career-high 20 points from freshman center Colton Iverson, the Minnesota men’s basketball team beat Eastern Washington 88-67 Nov. 26 at Williams Arena. In total, five players scored in double figures to lead Minnesota to its first 5-0 start since the 1999-2000 season. Sophomore shooting guard Blake Hoffarber, starting in place of injured guard Lawrence Westbrook, scored 12 points. Senior forward Jamal AbuShamala, junior forward Damian Johnson and junior guard Devron Bostick all chipped in with 11 points, respectively. Benny Valentine, the reigning Big Sky Player of the Week, hit five threepointers and led the Eagles with 29 points. Iverson, a true freshman set a career-high with nine blocks just 11 days ago in Minnesota’s win over Bowling Green. On Thanksgiving eve, the big man had set a career-high in scoring by halftime (14 points in the first 20 minutes of play) and finished the night shooting 10-of-13 from the field, while also adding five rebounds, four assists and a block. The Yankton, South Dakota native scored eight-straight points minutes into the first half, sparking Minnesota on a 17-3 run that put the Gophers ahead 24-11. The Eagles pulled to within seven midway through the half, but another 9-0 run, capped off by an Iverson layup, put the Gophers ahead 3822. The Gophers, who hit five three-points in the first half after missing their first four attempts, lead by as many as 21 in the first half. And, after shooting 63 percent from the field and 18 bench points in the first stanza, the Maroon and Gold owned a 47-29 halftime lead. One may have thought that the Eagles – playing their fourth game in eight nights – would run out of gas in the second half. That, however, was not the case. Eastern Washington came out of the locker room energized, hitting 7-of-9 shots and dwindled Minnesota’s lead to 12 moments into the final half of play. Led by the gutsy play of Valentine, the Eagles eventually cut Minnesota’s lead to 65-55 with nine minutes left in regulation. But as quickly as the momentum had turned in Eastern Washington’s favor to start the second stanza, it reversed back in the direction of the Gophers. Minnesota responded to the Eagles' run with a 12-0 run of its own, propelling the Gophers lead to 22 with under six minutes remaining in regulation and ending Eastern Washington’s comeback bid.

Recap: Minnesota scored 14 of the first 15 points of the game and never looked back as the Golden Gophers cruised to a 90-76 victory over North Dakota State Nov. 29 at Williams Arena. Jamal Abu-Shamala scored nine points in the first three minutes and finished with 20 and Lawrence Westbrook added 17 for Minnesota (6-0), which is off to its best start since winning six straight to open the 1999-2000 campaign. The Gophers, who shot a scalding 61.5 percent for the game, lead wire to wire and also got 12 points from Ralph Sampson III and 11 from Damian Johnson as they rolled to their highest point total of the season. Mike Nelson led North Dakota State (2-2) with 22 points. Brett Winkelman and Ben Woodside each added 16 for the Bison, who lost for the 24th time in 25 meetings with Minnesota. The Gophers’ fast start had them ahead by double figures for most of the contest. In fact, Minnesota’s lead slipped into single digits for just three minutes during the first half as the Gophers led by as many as 15 points before settling for a 38-28 halftime lead. North Dakota State made an early run at Minnesota to open the second half and cut the Gophers’ lead to 45-38 with just under 16 minutes to play. But that’s as close as the Bison would get as Minnesota scored 14 of the game’s next 18 points to take control. Abu-Shamala connected on six free throws during the run, including four in a row after NDSU coach Saul Phillips was whistled for a technical foul with 13:02 remaining, to put the Gophers up 59-42. A 3-point field goal by Westbrook with just over 10 minutes to go made it 69-51 and gave the Gophers their largest lead of the game at 18 points. Minnesota’s lead hit 18 points on three other occasions as the Bison were never able to mount a serious threat down the stretch.

Recap: Paced by a balanced scoring attack and tenacious defense, the Minnesota men’s basketball team defeated Virginia 66-56 in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge Dec. 2 at Williams Arena. Three players scored in double figures for the Gophers, who are off to their first 7-0 start since the 1976-77 season. Freshman center Colton Iverson went 5-of-6 from the field and finished with a team-high 14 points and seven rebounds. Minnesota’s leading scorer, Lawrence Westbrook, scored 13 points. Sophomore guard Blake Hoffarber connected on four three-pointers and chipped in with 12 points. Out of the gate, Minnesota – playing its first opponent of the season from a major collegiate conference – found itself in a hole, down 16-11 midway through the first stanza following a dunk by Virginia’s Mamadi Diane. But a thunderous rejection by junior forward Damian Johnson on Virginia’s next offensive possession, sparked the Gophers on a 15-2 run that put Minnesota ahead 26-18. On the run, in which the Gophers held the Cavaliers without a field goal for over four minutes, Iverson scored fivestraight points, including a thunderous put-back dunk to cap the rally. The Cavaliers cut Minnesota’s lead to one seconds into the second stanza, but that would be as close as they would come. The Gophers responded with an 11-2 run to stretch their lead to 10 with 15:31 remaining in the half. Johnson, who had three steals and three blocks on the night, brought those looking on at “The Barn” to their feet with a dazzling, spinning layup out of transition to put Minnesota up 43-33 and forcing a timeout by Cavaliers’ head coach Dave Leitao. Two free throws by Westbrook gave the Gophers their biggest advantage of the night – a 12-point lead - but two-straight three-pointers by Jamil Tucker and a layup by Calvin Baker helped cut Minnesota’s lead to 48-44 with under 10 minutes left in regulation. But the Gophers, like they did all night, had answer for the Calaviers’ surge. Hoffarber came in and drilled his fourth three of the night, sparking Minnesota on a 7-0 run to regain momentum of the game. The highlight of Minnesota’s game-winning run came when sophomore point guard Al Nolen forced a Virginia turnover and went coast-to-coast for a one-handed dunk. Looking like an NFL cornerback, Nolen – who finished with five steals - intercepted a Virginia pass from the post and went the length of the court for the flush, putting the Maroon and Gold up 55-44 with under eight minutes remaining.

Recap: The Gophers overcame a 12-point half-time deficit to beat Cornell 7154 Dec. 6 at Williams Arena and stay perfect on the 2008-09 season. The Gophers, 8-0 and off to their best start since the 1976-77 season, outscored the Big Red 43-14 in the second half to secure the victory. Junior shooting guard Lawrence Westbrook went 3-of-5 from three-point range and paced the Gophers with a team-high 17 points. Junior forward Damian Johnson added 11 points, four assists and two blocks in 19 minutes. Freshman big man Ralph Sampson III added 10 points to go along with six rebounds and junior forward Travis Busch chipped in eight points in the win. Ryan Wittman, a First-Team All-Ivy selection in 2007-08 and the 2006-07 Ivy League Rookie of the Year, paced Cornell with 21 points. Led by 16 first-half points from Wittman, Cornell – an NCAA Tournament team from a season ago - took a 40-28 lead into the locker room. But once the Gophers picked up their intensity to start the second half, Cornell - which also held a double-digit first half lead at No. 20 Syracuse on Wednesday night before falling to the Orangemen - had no answer to the Maroon and Gold's attack. Implementing a full-court trap and executing Tubby Smith’s ball-line defense to near perfection, Minnesota forced 10 Cornell turnovers in the second stanza and held the Big Red to 19.2 percent shooting (5-of-26 from the field and 0-of-13 from three-point range) to rally back from the deficit. After a back-and-forth start to the game, which included four ties and two lead changes, Cornell held the Gophers without a field goal for 3:35 and, with Wittman firing on all cylinders, the Big Red closed the half on a 16-5 run to take a double-digit lead into the locker room. Using a lineup combination of Al Nolen, Devoe Joseph, Westbrook, Johnson and Sampson III, the Gophers changed the games’ momentum with pressure defense. Down 46-33 after sophomore shooting guard Blake Hoffarber exited with an ankle injury, the Gophers harassed Cornell's offensive unit and went on a 13-0 to tie the game, 46-46. Moments later, the Gophers took their first lead of the second stanza, 49-48, when a Nolen steal led to a transition layup by Westbrook. And, after holding the Big Red without a field goal for 6:35 – Minnesota’s run eventually ballooned to 25-2 as a mid-range jumper by Busch gave the Gophers a 10-point lead, 58-48, with 5:09 left in regulation.

Recap: Led by a career-high 21 points, six rebounds and five blocks from junior forward Damian Johnson, the Minnesota men’s basketball team stayed undefeated with a 74-60 win over South Dakota State Dec. 10 at Williams Arena. Junior guard Lawrence Westbrook scored 12 points and freshman power forward Ralph Sampson III chipped in with 10 points and four blocks to help the Gophers improve to 9-0 on the young season. Clint Sargent was 8-of-13 from the field and paced the Jackrabbits with 25 points. Last year, the Jackrabbits came into The Barn fighting and nearly pulled the upset. In a back-and-forth affair which featured nine lead changes and five ties, SDSU was leading with less than seven minutes remaining in regulation before falling to the Gophers, 78-72. This time around, the Maroon and Gold started fast out of the gates and never trailed in their final game before a 10-day layoff. Minnesota held the Jackrabbits without a basket for the first five minutes of the game and began the first half on an 11-0 run. SDSU momentarily got back into the game, making three straight threepointers to cut the Gophers lead to 13-9. But Minnesota, fresh off outscoring Cornell 43-14 in the second half of Saturday afternoon’s win, put forth another monstrous spurt to regain a double-digit lead. Ahead by four with 11:41 remaining in the first half, the Gophers held SDSU without a field goal for nearly six minutes and went on a 21-6 run to build a 19-point lead following a layup by junior guard Devron Bostick. The Gophers took a 39-24 lead into the locker room, but that advantage didn’t last long, though. The Jackrabbits – who shot just 33.3 percent in the first half - came out of the locker room on fire, hitting four three-point attempts to cut Minnesota’s lead to 53-48 midway through the second half. But that was as close as the Jackrabbits would come. After SDSU cut Minnesota’s advantage to just five, sophomore point guard Al Nolen and junior forward Travis Busch connected on back-to-back baskets to weather the storm. And from there, led by timely offense and stifling defense by Johnson, Minnesota went on a 15-6 run, which was capped off by a three by Westbrook that put the Gophers up 68-54 with 3:25 remaining in the game.

Recap: The Gophers picked up arguably the biggest win of the Tubby Smith Era on Dec. 20, upsetting ninth-ranked Louisville 70-64 in the Stadium Shootout at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Starting point guard Al Nolen hit 13-of-17 free throws – including all six in the final minutes of regulation – and led the Gophers with 18 points. Shooting guard Blake Hoffarber hit four three-pointers and added 15 in his first game back from an ankle injury. Junior forward Travis Busch scored a career-high 13 points to help the Maroon and Gold to their first win over a Top10 team since Minnesota beat ninth-ranked Indiana on February 9, 2000. Terrence Williams paced Louisville with 17 points. Looking fresh following a 10-day break from action, Minnesota came out of the gates firing. Nolen scored Minnesota’s first seven points of the contest and the Gophers jumped out to a 9-3 lead when forward Damian Johnson stole an inbound-pass in front of the Gophers' bench and took the ball coast-tocoast for a breakaway dunk. The Cardinals battled back to the tie the game, but six-straight points by Busch put the Gophers ahead 22-15. Minnesota built its lead to as many as nine in the first stanza (26-17 following a layup by Johnson) and took a 38-33 lead into the locker room. Any questions whether or not the Gophers could sustain the lead were quickly put to bed in the second half thanks to stifling defense. A three-pointer by Louisville guard Jerry Smith moments into the second stanza cut the Gophers lead to four at 40-36. But that would be the Cardinals' only field goal over the course of the first eight minutes of the second half and the Gophers were prime to take advantage of Louisville’s offensive struggles. Minnesota hit 9-of-10 free throws in the final 3:32 of regulation (Nolen went 6-of-6 and Busch went 3-of-4) to make sure the Gophers left the Valley of the Sun with their biggest victory of the season - one that may come in handy when the NCAA Tournament Selection Committee hands out invitations to the 'Big Dance' in March. Minnesota limited the Cardinals to just 37 percent shooting and held them to 64 points, more than 16 points below their season average.

Recap: The Minnesota men's basketball team continued its best start in 32 years with an 80-71 win over Southeastern Louisiana Dec. 23 at Williams Arena. The 23rd-ranked Gophers (11-0) were paced by 15 points from guards Blake Hoffarber and Lawrence Westbrook, respectively. Forward Damian Johnson added 13 points, four rebounds, four assists, three steals and two blocks in 22 minutes of work. And point guard Al Nolen, fresh off a career game against Louisville on Saturday, added eight assists. Minnesota entered the contest nationally ranked for the first time since 2002, but the Lions – out of the Southern Conference – weren’t about to let the Gophers cruise into their holiday break. Led by 11 first-half points from Patrick Sullivan, the Lions (6-5) played neck-and-neck with the Gophers over the first 20 minutes of play. In total, there were 13 lead changes and 10 ties in the back-and-forth first stanza. A basket by Green put Southeastern Louisiana up 33-31 with 2:12 remaining in the first half but that would be the Lions’ last lead of the game. Moments later, Westbrook hit two free throws to even the game and forward Travis Busch hit a three-pointer right before the first-half buzzer sounded to put Minnesota ahead 40-36 at the half. Six-straight points out of the locker room from the Gophers – capped by a pretty hook shot in the lane by freshman power forward Ralph Sampson III – gave the Maroon and Gold their first double-digit lead of the game two minutes into the second half. Freshman point guard Devoe Joseph hit a three-pointer with 12:36 to go to put Minnesota up 57-46 and Hoffarber – who hit 3-of-4 from downtown added another for good measure to put Minnesota ahead 65-53 with less than eight minutes left in regulation. Down nine with three minutes to go, Southeastern Louisiana had a chance to remain in the game, but failed. Freshman center Colton Iverson blocked a Lions’ shot in the paint then added a layup on Minnesota’s ensuing offensive possession to push the Gophers’ lead back to double-digits and seal the games’ fate. The Gophers made 29-of-56 (.518) field goals, including 8-of-18 (.444) from three-point range. Southeastern Louisiana made 27-of-56 (.482) attempts from the field, but the Lions were just 5-of-18 (.278) from threepoint range.

Recap: The Minnesota men’s basketball team completed its non-conference schedule with an undefeated record after beating Tubby Smith’s alma-mater, High Point, 82-56 Dec. 28 at Williams Arena. Five players scored in double-figures for the Gophers, who are one of only nine teams still unbeaten in Division 1 basketball. Leading the charge was freshman power forward Ralph Sampson III with a career-high 17 points, six rebounds and three assists. Junior shooting guard Lawrence Westbrook added 13 on 5-of-8 shooting. Junior guard Devron Bostick, sophomore guard Blake Hoffarber and freshman guard Devoe Joseph were a combined 8-of-12 from three-point range and finished with 11 points apiece. Minnesota led from start to finish, building a 26-point halftime lead and 30-point second half advantage before closing out the Panthers (4-8). Westbrook, inserted back in Minnesota’s starting lineup by Smith, rewarded the Hall of Fame coach for his decision by hitting three three-pointers before the first TV timeout of the contest to put the Gophers ahead 13-5. Utilizing Smith’s ball-line defense to near perfection, the Maroon and Gold began stifling the Panthers, forcing turnovers and holding High Point without a basket for nearly five minutes to open up a double-digit lead. A three by Hoffarber put Minnesota up 35-20 with 3:45 to go in the first stanza, but for the Gophers, that was just the start of their damage from long range. Later, Joseph hit back-to-back three’s and Bostick followed by hitting a pair from downtown on Minnesota’s final two possessions of the half, finishing off a 19-3 run for the Gophers over the final 4:27 of the half and giving Minnesota a 49-23 halftime advantage. The Panthers opened the second half by making 5-of-8 field goals – including consecutive three’s by Harris -and cut Minnesota’s lead to 20 at 5535. However, that would be as close as High Point would come.

Recap: The Minnesota men’s basketball team suffered its first loss of the 2008-09 season Dec. 31 at Williams Arena, falling to 10th-ranked Michigan State 70-58 in the Big Ten opener for both teams. Michigan State point guard Kalin Lucas went 9-of-18 from the field and led all scorers with a game-high 24 points. Chris Allen hit 3-of-8 three-point attempts and added 13 points for the Spartans. Meanwhile, Raymar Morgan posted a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds for Tom Izzo’s squad. With Michigan State's big men imposing their will in the paint, the Gophers struggled all day on the glass. The Gophers gave up 13 offensive rebounds in the first half, 10 more in the second half and gave up a combined total of 23 offensive rebounds. For the game, Minnesota was outrebounded a whooping 49-27. With both teams struggling to find an offensive rhythm early, the game started as a defensive tilt. The first field goal of the game wasn’t scored until Nolen hit a jumper 2:08 into the contest and at the first TV timeout the score was tied 2-2. As Michigan State dominated the boards – outrebounding Minnesota 135 on the offensive glass over the first 20 minutes of play - Michigan State built a nine-point first-half advantage and led 30-22 with less than two minutes left in the first stanza. But Nolen connected on two free throws, shooting guard Blake Hoffarber hit a three-pointer in front of the Spartans’ bench with 36 seconds left in the stanza and forward Damian Johnson added two free throws with 3.5 seconds left in the half and all of the sudden the Gophers only trailed by one heading into the locker room, down 30-29 at halftime. But just like the first half, Michigan State quickly flexed its muscles. After a free throw by Iverson seconds into the half tied the game, 30-30, the Spartans went on an 18-6 run and led 48-36 with 11:22 left in regulation. The Gophers tried to rally back – coming within seven after a three by Nolen made it 52-45 with 9:23 left to go – but couldn’t make enough plays down the stretch.

Recap: The Minnesota men's basketball team evened its Big Ten record to 11 with a 68-59 win over 23rd-ranked Ohio State Jan. 3 at Williams Arena. The 21st-ranked Gophers were led to victory by forward Damian Johnson, who filled up the stat sheet against the Buckeyes. Johnson scored 12 points, grabbed six rebounds, and recorded four assists, four steals and three blocks in 34 minutes of work. Just days after being outrebounded by 22 against the 10th-ranked Spartans, Minnesota flexed its muscles literally and figuratively Saturday, proving it is capable of banging with upper-echelon teams in the conference by grabbing 15 offensive boards and outrebounding the Buckeyes 42-30. While Minnesota’s rebounding performance stole the show, the Gophers were equally successful distributing the ball. Minnesota moved the ball around all day, finishing with 20 assists as 10 different Gophers scored in the contest. When Minnesota’s floor general, Al Nolen, went to the bench midway through the first half after picking up two quick fouls, the Gophers lost their offensive rhythm and trailed 22-15 following a three-pointer by Ohio State’s Jon Diebler. But after going nearly seven minutes without a field goal, Minnesota’s offense came to life after Devoe Joseph converted on a fastbreak layup with 5:29 left in the first stanza. From there, thanks to some hot outside shooting, gritty interior play on both ends of the court and the Gophers implementing a 2-3 zone defensive scheme, Minnesota went on a mammoth 19-2 run to close the first half as the Maroon and Gold built a 34-24 halftime lead. The Buckeyes quickly rallied back in the second half, connecting on threepointers on three of their first four possessions of the half to cut Minnesota’s lead to three, 36-33, two minutes into the second stanza. The Gophers responded with an 11-0 run of their own, punctuated by a three-pointer by Blake Hoffarber that put Minnesota ahead 47-33 with 13:31 left in the half. A late Ohio State run made things interesting – cutting Minnesota’s lead to seven - but the Maroon and Gold made 6-of-6 free throws down the stretch to secure their first victory of the Big Ten season.

Recap: The Minnesota men's basketball team rallied back from a 13-point first-half deficit to beat Big Ten rival Iowa 52-49 Jan. 8 at Carver-Hawkeye Arena in Iowa City, Iowa. Forward Travis Busch and guard Lawrence Westbrook led the way for the 19th-ranked Gophers (14-1, 2-1 Big Ten) with 10 points each. Busch converted clutch baskets all night and finished 4-of-7 from the field and 2-of-3 from three-point range. Westbrook, meanwhile, secured the victory by making 4-of4 free throw attempts in the final seconds of regulation. After cutting a 13-point deficit down to six at halftime, the Gophers opened the second stanza on a 11-5 run and tied the game at 31 after two free throws by Devron Bostick with 11:21 left to play. Two possessions later, Busch hit his second three of the night to put the Gophers ahead, 36-33, with 9:20 to go. A layup by Damian Johnson with just over five minutes remaining gave the Gophers their biggest lead of the night – eight points – at 41-33. But Iowa freshman Matt Gatens, who finished with 11 points, connected on back-toback threes to get the Hawkeyes right back into the game. With 1:17 left in regulation, two free throws by Minnesota native Anthony Tucker had Iowa within two at 46-44. A layup by Busch put the Gophers up 4844 with 45 seconds to go, but Peterson hit a three-pointer with five seconds left to cut Minnesota’s lead to 50-49. Westbrook, however, calmly hit a pair of free throws and Iowa guard Jake Kelly’s half-court three-point attempt at the final horn was off the mark, preserving Minnesota’s come-from-behind victory. Minnesota started the game cold from the field and paid for its offensive woes on the scoreboard. Midway through the first stanza, the Gophers went without a field goal for over five and half minutes and found themselves down 23-10 following a three-point play by Iowa forward Jarryd Cole. But a late first-half rally changed the game’s momentum and put the Gophers in striking distance at intermission. From there, Minnesota’s defense took over. The Gophers held Iowa without a field goal for 12 minutes in the second stanza and one field goal in the first 15 minutes of the half as the Maroon and Gold built an eight point advantage.

Recap: Led by career days from Devron Bostick and Paul Carter, the Minnesota men's basketball team defeated Penn State 79-59 Jan. 11 at Williams Arena. Bostick made 7-of-8 field goal attempts and finished with a career-high 19 points. Carter, meanwhile, finished 5-of-6 from the field and finished with a career-high 14 points. Lawrence Westbrook added 13 points and Ralph Sampson III chipped in with 10 points and three blocks for the Gophers, who are now 15-1 overall and 3-1 in the Big Ten. Fresh off a tight win at Iowa, the Gophers made sure Sunday’s contest wouldn’t be quite as nerve racking. The Gophers led from start to finish, taking a 10-point lead into intermission and opening up a 21-point second-half advantage en route to the lopsided victory. The Gophers went a faultless 9-of-9 from three-point range and finished the game shooting a sizzling 62.5 percent (30-of-48) from the field. Defensively, the Maroon and Gold were equally impressive. The Gophers registered 11 steals and eight blocks and limited the Nittany Lions to 36.4 percent shooting (22-of-60). Despite the shooting discrepancy between the teams, it took some time for Minnesota to separate from the pesky Nittany Lions. Behind two threepointers a piece from Westbrook and Bostick, the Gophers finished the first stanza a perfect 7-of-7 from behind the arc. But Penn State made five three’s of its own in the first half and stayed competitive; down only three, 31-28, following a layup by Battle with 4:09 left in the half. Sparked by full-court pressure defense and strong contributions off the bench, the Gophers finished the half on 9-2 run to regain momentum. And, after point guard Al Nolen – who finished with five assists and zero turnovers - found Paul Carter for a thunders dunk right before the first-half buzzer, the Gophers took a 40-30 lead into the locker room. Minnesota – which shot 68.9 percent in the second half (15-of-22) – responded with a monstrous 22-8 run to build a 21-point lead, 70-49, and put the game out of reach. Bostick, the reigning junior college player of the year, keyed the run – scoring 11 points in Minnesota’s huge nine minute spurt.

Recap: The Minnesota men’s basketball team rallied from a 14-point deficit to pull out an improbable 78-74 overtime victory over Wisconsin Jan. 15 at the Kohl Center in Madison, Wis. Lawrence Westbrook went 10-of-16 from the field and led the 17th-ranked Gophers with a career-high 29 points, including a three-pointer to tie the game with two seconds left in regulation. Damian Johnson and Racine, Wisc. native Devron Bostick added 11 points each and Paul Carter posted a doubledouble with 10 points and 11 rebounds in 23 minutes of action to help the Maroon and Gold win in Madison for the first time since February of 1994. Down 10 with 3:30 remaining in the second half, Minnesota stunned the Badgers down the stretch. Using full-court pressure to force turnovers and making timely baskets in crunch time, the Gophers went on a 20-10 run over the final three minutes of regulation to force overtime following Westbrook’s clutch three. After racing out to a 10-2 lead following a three-pointer by Al Nolen four minutes into the game, the Gophers trailed by between eight and 12 points for much of the game. Minnesota went without a basket for nearly eight minutes, Wisconsin responded to the Gophers’ opening spurt with a mammoth 27-6 run and led 29-16 following a layup by Jon Leuer with 4:11 left in the first half. But Wisconsin scored six-straight points – capped by a shot-clock beating jumper by Trevon Hughes - to balloon its lead to 12 with six minutes remaining and it looked as if the Gophers were finished. Two steals by Minnesota helped the Gophers cut Wisconsin’s lead to 5552 after a dunk by Carter with 2:11 remaining. Landry responded with a bucket and a free throw to put the Badgers up 58-52 with 52 seconds to go, but two free throws by Westbrook cut Minnesota’s deficit to 60-56 with 37 seconds remaining and a three by Johnson pulled the Gophers within one at 60-59. Joe Krabbenhoft hit two free throws to put Wisconsin ahead 62-59, but on Minnesota’s final position of regulation, Westbrook's final-second three found the net to force overtime. Westbrook added nine points in the extra period, including four free throws in the final seconds to hold off a late Wisconsin rally and complete Minnesota’s improbable comeback.

Recap: A cold-shooting second half plagued the Minnesota men’s basketball team as the Gophers fell to Northwestern 74-65 Jan. 18 at Welsh-Ryan Arena in Evanston, Ill. Lawrence Westbrook paced the 17th-ranked Gophers with 18 points and eight rebounds. Damian Johnson and Al Nolen added 14 and 10 points, respectively, in defeat. Craig Moore went 6-of-9 from three-point range and scored a game-high 22 points for the Wildcats. Kevin Coble added 20 points for Northwestern, which secured its first win of the Big Ten season. The Gophers (16-2, 4-2 Big Ten), fresh off a thrilling overtime win at Wisconsin Thursday night, came out firing – hitting 14 of their first 18 shot attempts and opened up a nine-point first-half lead (32-23 following a jumper by Johnson with 5:23 remaining in the first stanza). Minnesota finished the first half shooting a red-hot 62.5 percent from the field and held a 34-31 halftime lead. But the Gophers’ shooting touch quickly disappeared. With Bill Carmody’s patented 1-3-1 zone defense giving Minnesota fits, the Gophers struggled to find any sort of offensive rhythm in the second half. After Westbrook hit a three to put the Maroon and Gold ahead 37-31 moments into the second stanza, the Gophers – who went just 10-of-29 from the field in the second half (34.5 percent) - went without a basket for seven minutes. Accordingly, Northwestern took advantage of Minnesota’s offensive woes. With the Gophers shooting just 14 percent from the field midway through the second half, the Wildcats proceeded to break the game open in their favor by putting together a mammoth a 20-2 run to go ahead 51-39 with 9:24 remaining in regulation. The Wildcats’ lead eventually ballooned to as many as 14 late and, unlike Thursday’s come-from-behind win in Madison, Minnesota – which turned the ball over 10 times in the second half leading to 14 Northwestern points couldn’t orchestrate a last-minute run.

Recap: The Minnesota men's basketball team couldn't keep pace with 18thranked Purdue Jan. 22, falling to the Boilermakers 70-62 at Williams Arena. Al Nolen went 10-of-10 from the free throw line and paced the 20thranked Gophers with 17 points and six rebounds. Shooting guard Lawrence Westbrook added 12 points in defeat and Damian Johnson chipped in with nine points, five rebounds and three steals and three blocks in 28 minutes of action. After struggling to find an offensive rhythm against Northwestern on Sunday, the Gophers shooting woes continued for 40 minutes against the Boilermakers. Minnesota went 8-of-22 in the first half, 8-of-36 in the second half, and finished the game shooting 27.6 percent (16-of-58) from the field. Purdue, meanwhile, shot 46.8 percent from the field (22-of-47) and built a 16point second-half lead before heading back to West Lafayette with a precious road victory. Nine minutes into the game, the Boilermakers already had totaled seven turnovers. But with the Gophers being equally as sloppy with the ball – Minnesota committed 12 first-half turnovers - Purdue jumped out to a 20-12 lead following free throws by Lewis Jackson midway through the half. Minnesota connected on just 8-of-22 shots in the first half (36.4 percent), while the Boilermakers were far more efficient, going 14-of-27 from the field (51.9 percent). A three by Moore gave Purdue its biggest lead of the half - 2715 - with 5:58 left in the half. A layup by Westbrook on Minnesota’s final possession of the first half cut the Gophers’ deficit to 36-29 at the half and gave the Maroon and Gold hope heading into the second half. But the cold-shooting Gophers started the second half 0-of-7 from threepoint range and 4-of-16 from the field overall, and trailed 50-37 following back-to-back three’s by the Boilermakers with 11 minutes to play. Eventually, Purdue built a 16-point advantage, 57-41, following a dunk by Johnson with 8:20 left to go in regulation. Minnesota made things interesting down the stretch - getting to within eight with five minutes left and within six in the final minute – but couldn’t rattle the defending Big Ten Champion Boilermakers, who held on to improve to 4-2 in conference play.

Recap: In a back-and-forth game, Minnesota made enough plays down the stretch to secure a 67-63 road win over Indiana Jan. 25 at Assembly Hall in Bloomington, Indiana. Forward Damian Johnson paced the Gophers (17-3 overall, 5-3 Big Ten) with 18 points and six rebounds and freshman center Ralph Sampson III added 13 points, eight rebounds and a career-high six blocks to help Minnesota snap its two-game losing streak. Lawrence Westbrook and Jamal Abu-Shamala chipped in with 12 and 10 points, respectively. Down eight midway through the first half, Minnesota rallied back and led by one at halftime. From there, the Gophers would never trail ... although things certainly got more than interesting for the Maroon and Gold down the stretch. Minnesota briefly held a six-point lead with 11 minutes to go in regulation, but that advantage quickly evaporated – making for a back-and-forth finish at Assembly Hall. The Hoosiers pulled to within one on four occasions over the final nine minutes of play, but could never pull even in the second stanza. In front of a packed crowd of Hoosier faithful, Indiana opened the game 5-of-5 from three-point land and jumped out to a 19-11 lead following a layup by Dumes with 8:06 left in the first half. Over the final eight minutes of the first half, the Gophers went on an 208 run – highlighted by a four-point play by Jamal Abu-Shamala – and led 3127 after a midrange jumper by Westbrook with five seconds remaining in the half. Minnesota opened the second half on an 11-5 run and extended its lead to 42-35 after Nolen found Johnson for a dunk three minutes into the half. Five minutes into the half Indiana pulled to within one at 45-44 following a layup by Daniel Moore. Minnesota briefly opened up a six-point lead following a breakaway dunk by Paul Carter with 10:46 left in regulation, but five-straight points by the Hoosiers pulled Indiana to within one, 51-50, with 9:45 remaining. Indiana had a chance to take the lead on its next offensive possession but Jones missed a layup and Broderick Lewis missed two free throws. The Hoosiers would never pull even.

Recap: The Minnesota men's basketball team ended its 20-game losing streak to Illinois with an impressive 59-36 win over the 21st-ranked Illini Jan. 29 at Williams Arena. Lawrence Westbrook paced the 24th-ranked Gophers with 15 points and six rebounds in 30 minutes of action. Freshman center Ralph Sampson III added 10 points and seven rebounds to help Minnesota improve to 18-3 overall and 6-3 in the Big Ten. Carrying the momentum of a six-point halftime lead into the second half, the Gophers shot 48.1 percent (13-of-27) over the final 20 minutes of play and blew the game open – leading by as many as 23 – in front of a raucous sellout crowd of 14,625 at The Barn. But the story of arguably Minnesota's biggest home win of the season was the Gophers’ ability to stifle the Illini with Tubby Smith's patented ball-line defensive scheme. The 36 points Minnesota held the Illini to on this night marks the lowest point total by an Illinois team in 24 years . The point total was also the fewest allowed by the Gophers in a conference game since 1951. Additionally, the Gophers 23-point win is the largest over a ranked opponent in the history of the program. The previous mark of 21 points in a win over No. 9 Purdue was set in 1993. Down 6-5, Minnesota went on an 8-0 run – capped by a three-pointer from Blake Hoffarber – to take a 13-6 lead midway through the first half. The Gophers’ lead eventually ballooned to eight, 20-12, after a layup by Al Nolen forced Bruce Weber to call a timeout with 3:49 remaining in the first stanza. Illiniois cut Minnesota’s lead to four in the final minutes of the first, but an acrobatic layup by Westbrook on Minnesota’s final possession of the first half sent the Gophers into the locker room up 22-16 at halftime. The Illini shrunk Minnesota’s lead to 36-27 after Calvin Brock hit Illinois’ first three of the night, but the Gophers responded with a 9-0 run and led 4527 following a three by Lawrence Westbrook with 7:46 left to go. The Illini scored five quick points to cut into Minnesota’s advantage, but Westbrook hit another three to put the Gophers ahead by 16, 50-34, with 4:52 to play – all but ending Illinois' attempt at a comeback.

Recap: Unable to recover from a disastrous first half, the Minnesota men’s basketball team fell to 14th-ranked Michigan State 76-47 Feb. 4 at the Breslin Center in East Lansing, Mich. The 19th-ranked Gophers, who went without a field goal for the first six minutes of regulation, trailed by 26 at halftime and by as many as 35 in the second half before succumbing to the Spartans. Devoe Joseph paced Minnesota with 11 points while Blake Hoffarber and Paul Carter added seven points each. Durrell Summers scored 17 of his gamehigh 21 points in the first half to lead the Spartans (18-4 overall, 8-2 Big Ten) to victory. Chris Allen added 13 points and Kalin Lucas chipped in with 10 points and four assists. The game was touted as a first-place showdown. With Minnesota fresh off an impressive home victory over Illinois and the Spartans coming off two consecutive home losses to Northwestern and Penn State, the Maroon and Gold had an opportunity to sit atop the conference standings with a win. Those hopes, however, quickly vanished in an atrocious shooting first half. The Gophers (18-4, 6-4) went 4-of-23 from the field (17.4 percent) in their lowest-scoring first half of the season. Meanwhile, Tom Izzo’s squad – despite being without the services of Raymar Morgan (12.3 ppg) - shot 53.3 percent over the first 20 minutes of play (16-of-30) on their way to a 42-16 lead heading into the locker room. Minnesota trailed 13-1 five and a half minutes into the game but an 8-2 spurt by the Gophers cut Michigan State’s lead to 15-9 midway through the first stanza. That, however, would be as close as Minnesota would come. The Spartans proceeded to go on a 17-0 run – capped by a thunderous dunk by Summers – to take a 30-9 lead with 5:52 left in the half. Michigan State’s 26-point halftime lead reached 30 moments into the second half and the Spartans led by 35, 54-19, following a layup by Travis Walton with 14 minutes left in regulation.

Recap: Despite 19 second-half points from Blake Hoffarber, Minnesota fell to Ohio State 64-58 Feb. 7 at Value City Arena in Columbus, OH. Hoffarber hit six three-pointers - and scored 16 straight points - in the second stanza to keep the 19th-ranked Gophers within striking distance until the final minute of regulation. Damian Johnson scored 12 points and added 10 rebounds and three blocks in defeat. Colton Iverson finished with eight points and five rebounds on the night. Evan Turner went 10-of-12 from the free throw line and finished with a double-double of 18 points and 10 rebounds to pace the Buckeyes. Four other players scored in double figures for Ohio State, which improves to 17-5 overall and 7-4 in the Big Ten. Down 10 with under nine minutes remaining in regulation following backto-back three’s by the Buckeyes, Hoffarber – who finished the contest 6-of-10 from behind the arc – connected on five three-pointers down the stretch to pull Minnesota to within three, 55-52, with 3:46 left in regulation. But that would be as close as Tubby Smith’s squad would come as Minnesota, which shot 39.6 percent (21-of-53) for the game, couldn’t convert down the stretch. Still down three with just over a minute left to go, Turner made 7-of-8 free throws in the final moments of regulation to seal things for the Buckeyes, who have now won five consecutive games. After an embarrassing loss at Michigan State on Wednesday, the Gophers looked like a refocused team from the get-go Saturday night. Despite only shooting 40 percent in the first half, a gritty Minnesota team jumped out to a 13-7 lead. Ohio State gained control of the game midway through the first stanza thanks to a 20-8 run, but the Gophers rallied back at the end of the half and were in the game at halftime, down 29-26 heading into the locker room. A three-point play by Iverson moments into the second half tied the game at 29-29, but a 17-7 run by the Buckeyes – capped by back-to-back three’s by Jeremie Simmons and Jon Diebler – put Thad Matta’s squad ahead 46-36 with 8:51 to go. Hoffarber did his best to lead the Gophers back – scoring 16 points in a five minutes stretch – but it wasn’t enough, as Ohio State escaped with a victory to even the season series at 1-1.

Recap: Paul Carter scored 19 of his career-high 22 points in the second half to propel Minnesota to a 62-54 win over Indiana Feb. 10 at Williams Arena. Carter, who hit six of his final seven shots after starting the game 1-of-6 from the field, also added six rebounds, two steals and a block in 22 minutes of action. Freshman point guard Devoe Joseph added nine points and four rebounds, while freshman big man Ralph Sampson III poured in eight points and seven rebounds to help the Gophers improve to 19-5 overall and 7-5 in the Big Ten. Trailing Tom Crean’s squad 34-33 with just under 13 minutes remaining in regulation, the Gophers’ offense finally erupted – going on an 11-0 run – to take control of the game and avoid a major scare in front of a sellout crowd of 14,625. In a first half infested with turnovers (Indiana had 15 miscues to Minnesota’s 11), the Gophers – who held Indiana without a field goal for the first 5:09 of regulation - couldn’t pull away from the Hoosiers. Minnesota, which built an 11-point first half lead, held Indiana to just 6of-15 from the field (35.6 percent) in the first half. But with the Gophers equally as poor – they went 10-of-26 from the field (38.6 percent) - Minnesota was up just seven, 27-20, heading into the locker room following a buzzerbeating layup by Jones. Tubby Smith brought in four players – Devoe Joseph, Blake Hoffarber, Devron Bostick and Jon Williams – to attempt and change the game’s momentum. The Hoosiers, though, had other plans: They were set on continuing their three point barrage. After going 1-of-7 from downtown in the first half, Indiana opened the second half by making 4-of-6 from behind the arc. And after Matt Roth hit back-to-back three’s to silence Williams Arena, Indiana had its first lead of the game, 34-33, with 12:50 remaining. The Gophers responded from the Hoosiers’ surge with one of their own – going on an 11-0 run, capped by a Jamal Abu-Shamala three – that put Minnesota ahead 44-34 with 10:12 to go. From there, the Gophers’ lead ballooned to 14 with just under six minutes to go when a dunk by Carter put Minnesota ahead 52-38. The Gophers, who recorded eight regular season conference wins last year, held on down the stretch to pick up their seventh Big Ten victory of the season.

Recap: Despite a career-high 23 points from Devoe Joseph, Minnesota fell to Penn State 68-63 Feb. 14 at the Bryce Jordan Center in State College, Pa. Joseph, who entered the game averaging 4.6 points per contest, went 7of-8 from three-point range in the second half - tying a school record for three's in a game - to rally the Gophers back from a nine-point deficit. Al Nolen added 10 points and five assists and Paul Carter poured in six points and seven rebounds for Minnesota, which is now 19-6 overall and 7-6 in the Big Ten. The Big Ten's leading scorer, Talor Battle, paced Penn State with 21 points. . Down nine with 10 minutes left in regulation, Joseph hit four three pointers in a five-minute span – leading Minnesota on a 17-5 run and putting the Gophers up 56-53 with 5:16 left to go. But the Gophers couldn’t hold on to the lead, going without a field goal for the next 5:06 of regulation Still up three with 2:40 to go, Battle hit a three to tie the game, propelling the Nittany Lions on a 10-0 in the final moments of play to secure a much needed win for Ed DeChellis’ squad. Minnesota and Penn State both came into Saturday afternoon’s game realizing the importance of their Valentine’s Day matchup. For the Nittany Lions, a win Saturday would keep their NCAA Tournament hopes alive. For the Gophers, meanwhile, a victory would put the Maroon and Gold one step closer to securing an automatic bid to the ‘Big Dance.’ From the get-go, both teams played the contest as if it was a “must win.” The Gophers and Nittany Lions - perhaps anxious to make big plays - combined for 22 turnovers in an uptight first half which saw both teams also shoot poorly from the field (Minnesota went 6-of-21 and Penn State 8-of-22). Minnesota regained the lead on the first possession of the second half thanks to a jumper by Lawrence Westbrook, but from there the Nittany Lionsmostly thanks to Pringle - broke open the back-and-forth affair. With the Gophers down 58-56 with just over a minute to go and the ball, Battle stole the ball from Joseph and went coast-to-coast for a layup to give Penn State a two possession lead at 60-56. Moments later, the Nittany Lions grabbed an offensive rebound on a missed free throw by Battle, securing the victory for the home team.

Recap: The Minnesota men’s basketball team couldn’t keep pace with a lights-out shooting performance by Michigan, falling to the Wolverines 74-62 Feb. 19 at Crisler Arena in Ann Arbor, Mich. Freshman guard Devoe Joseph led the Gophers with a team-high 14 points. Lawrence Westbrook poured in 12 points and Damian Johnson added 10 points and four blocks in defeat. With the loss the Gophers fall to 19-7 overall and 7-7 in the Big Ten. Zack Novak went 6-of-10 from three-point land and finished with a gamehigh 18 points for Michigan. DeShawn Sims, Stu Douglass and Kelvin Grady all scored 12 points apiece for the Wolverines, who improve to 17-10 overall and 7-7 in conference play. It was three-point shooting that built a gap between Minnesota and Michigan all night. Michigan went 13-of-28 (46.4 percent) from three-point range while the Gophers went just 5-of-21 (23.8 percent) from behind the arc. Minnesota hung with the Wolverines early, even jumping out to a 14-12 lead 10 minutes into the game. But once Novak got rolling from deep, Michigan became nearly impossible to stop offensively. Novak, who went 4-of-5 from three-point range in the first half, hit backto-back three’s midway through the stanza to propel the Wolverines on an 184 run. With Minnesota playing stagnant offensively – the Maroon and Gold shot 39 percent from the field and went 1-of-10 from three-point range Michigan held a double-digit lead late in the first half. And when Michigan’s center, Sims – a big man with shooting range - connected from downtown with 17 seconds left in the half, Michigan (which shot 44 percent in the first half and went 8-of-19 from three-point range) entered the locker room with a 40-25 lead. Minnesota cut Michigan’s lead to 13 on the first possession of the second stanza, but that would be as close as the Gophers would come until the final seconds of regulation. Continuing to shoot unconscious from the field, the Wolverines built their lead to 18 five minutes into the second half following another three by Sims. Moments later, a three by Novak followed by baskets from Douglass and Zack Gibson gave Michigan a 58-36 lead. From there, the Wolverines never let their lead dip to single digits as they held off the Gophers down the stretch.

Recap: The Minnesota men’s basketball team got revenge Feb. 22 for a midJan. loss at Northwestern, handling the Wildcats 72-45 at Williams Arena. Lawrence Westbrook hit four three-pointers and led the Maroon and Gold with a game-high 17 points. Devron Bostick, who had a combined four points in nine games entering the matchup, scored nine points – all in the first half – on his 21st Birthday. The Gophers improve to 20-7 overall and 8-7 in Big Ten play – matching their overall and conference win totals from 2007-08. Meanwhile, the Wildcats drop to 14-11 overall and 5-9 in the Big Ten. With a mixture of efficient offense and stifling defense the Gophers broke open the game midway through the first half and never looked back, leading by as many 28 on their way to their 15th home win. Northwestern was within three, 16-13, following a three by Craig Moore with 9:29 remaining in the first half. But that would be as close as the Wildcats would come as Minnesota ended the first half on a mammoth 20-5 run. The Gophers jumped out to a 25-13 lead with just over six minutes remaining in the first half following a tip-in layup by Bostick. Later, a three by Westbrook followed by a free throw by Colton Iverson gave the Gophers an 18point advantage, 36-18, heading into halftime. Out of the locker room, Minnesota extended its lead some more. Westbrook hit another three moments into the second half and Damian Johnson followed with a layup to put the Gophers ahead 43-21 two and a half minutes into the stanza. With just over eight minutes remaining in regulation, Minnesota’s lead ballooned to 24 when Al Nolen found Iverson for a thunderous dunk to put the Maroon and Gold in front 55-31. With 4:19 to go, Nolen connected on a three to give the Gophers a 27-point lead. And, down the stretch, Hoffarber put the icing on the cake by connecting from downtown to give Minnesota its biggest lead of the night, a 28-point advantage, with just over a minute remaining.

Recap: The Minnesota men's basketball team put forth a valiant effort, however, couldn't make enough plays down the stretch and fell to Illinois 52-41 on Feb. 26 at Assembly Hall in Champaign. The Gophers, who are fighting for an NCAA Tournament bid, led by one with 10:09 remaining in regulation but went without a field goal for the final 6:21 of the game before falling by double digits. Damian Johnson paced the Gophers with a game-high 18 points and three blocks. Ralph Sampson III added eight points and Travis Busch poured in five. Colton Iverson grabbed eight rebounds in the loss. Minnesota falls to 20-8 overall and 8-8 in Big Ten play with two games remaining in the regular season . Mike Davis posted a double-double with 14 points and 11 rebounds for the Illini. Trent Meacham scored 13 and Demetri McCamey added 10. The 20thranked Illini improve to 23-6 overall and 11-5 in the Big Ten. Early, it appeared as if Minnesota was prime to upset the Illini in their final road game of the season. Led by the play of Johnson, Minnesota jumped out to leads of 9-2 three minutes into the game and 15-11 eight minutes into the contest. Johnson scored 12 of Minnesota's first 15 points of the half and was responsbile for seven of Minnesota's 11 made field goals over the first 20 minutes of play. In total, Minnesota went 11-of-32 (34.4 percent) in the first half. Meanwhile, Illinois didn't fair much better - going 11-of-31 (35.5 percent) from the field. Still, the Illini went on a 5-0 run to close the half and took a 28-23 lead into the locker room. Minnesota rallied back in the second stanza, eventually taking a 39-38 lead with 10:09 left in regulation following a layup by Travis Busch. The Gophers' lead was short lived, though. A layup by Davis put the Illini up by one with 9:45 remaining and Bruce Weber's squad never looked back. A jumper by Sampson III pulled Minnesota to within one, 42-41, with 6:21 to go. But the Gophers went without a field goal for the remainder of regulation and Illinois finished the game on a 10-0 run. For the game, Minnesota shot 31.7 percent (19-of-60). The Illini shot 21of-50 (42 percent).

Recap: Lawrence Westbrook, who scored a season-high 29 points to lead Minnesota to an improbable come-from-behind win in Madison on January 15th, led the Gophers on a 10-0 run over the final two minutes of regulation, propelling the Maroon and Gold to a 51-46 win over Wisconsin March 4 at Williams Arena. Trailing by five with under two minutes remaining, Minnesota buckled down on defense – holding the Badgers scoreless for the remainder of regulation – and Westbrook hit two baskets and drilled six-straight free throws in the final 1:53 of the game to help the Gophers – desperate for a win to pad their NCAA Tournament resume – improve to 21-8 overall and 9-8 in the Big Ten. With the win, the Gophers swept the regular series with the Badgers for the first time since the 1991-1992 season. After leading by seven at halftime and six early in the second half, Minnesota found itself down 46-41 after a free throw by Hughes with 2:37 to play. Back-to-back baskets by Westbrook pulled the Gophers within one, 46-45, with 1:07 to play. Minnesota held the Badgers on their next offensive possession and Westbrook forced a foul, made two free throws, and put the Maroon and Gold ahead 47-46 with 29 seconds to play. The Gophers again held – forcing missed three’s by Landry and Hughes with time winding down - and Westbrook hit two more free throws to put Minnesota up 49-46. Coach Tubby Smith, in an attempt to mix things up, began the game by replacing his usual backcourt starters – Westbrook and Al Nolen – with freshman guard Devoe Joseph and sophomore guard Blake Hoffarber. The moves paid dividends early. Joseph hit a jumper on Minnesota’s first possession of the game and the Gophers jumped out to a six-point lead, 13-7, nine and a half minutes into the contest. The 16 points Minnesota held the Badgers to in the first half ties an opponent season- low for a half. The Gophers led 22-15 at halftime against Illinois on January 19th. Out of the locker room, the Badgers quickly got back into the game. As Minnesota went without a field goal for the first 3:22 of the second stanza, the Badgers ran off five-straight points and pulled to within two, 23-21, with 17:10 left.

Recap: The Minnesota men's basketball team couldn't hold on to a 12-point second-half lead, eventually falling to Michigan 67-64 March 7 at Williams Arena. Lawrence Westbrook went 9-for-9 at the free throw line and finished with a team-high 16 points for Minnesota. Ralph Sampson III and Damian Johnson added 13 and 12 points, respectively. On Senior Day, forward Jamal AbuShamala went 4-of-6 from the field and finished with 10 points and five rebounds. The Gophers – hopeful for an NCAA Tournament invitation - finish the regular season 21-9 overall and 9-9 in Big Ten play. Minnesota posted 21 regular season wins for the first time since 1976-77. DeShawn Sims scored a game-high 24 points to lead Michigan to victory. Laval Lucas-Perry went 3-of-4 from three-point range and finished with 19 points and Manny Harris added 14. With the win, the Wolverines finish the regular season 19-12 overall and 9-9 in conference play. Ahead by three entering the second half, Minnesota went on a 14-5 run to begin the second stanza and led 49-37 following a layup by Johnson six minutes into the half. With 10 minutes left to go, Minnesota still led by doubledigits, 56-46, following a free throw by Sampson III. But the pesky Wolverines – desperate to finish the season .500 in conference play to make themselves a more appealing team to the NCAA selection committee – wouldn’t go away. Down 10, Lucas-Perry proceeded to score 10-straight points for the Wolverines – including back-to-back three’s – to cut Minnesota’s lead to two, 56-54, with 8:14 left in regulation. A layup by Sims tied the game at 58-58 with 6:30 to play and two free throws by the junior forward gave the Wolverines the lead outright, 60-58, with five minutes to play. A jumper by freshman guard Devoe Joseph tied the game with 4:51 to play, but that would be as close as the Gophers would come. Moments later, Sims hit a baseline jumper to put the Wolverines ahead again and Harris hit a corner three with 2:06 to play to put Michigan up 65-60. Westbrook tried to get Minnesota back into the game – hitting four free throws to pull Minnesota to within three, 67-64, with 44 seconds to go. Minnesota held Michigan on its final offensive possession of the game and Tubby Smith called a timeout with four seconds left to diagram a game-tying shot.

Recap: Minnesota advanced to the quarterfinals of the Big Ten Tournament with a 66-53 win over Northwestern at Conseco Field House. Lawrence Westbrook scored 14 points to lead the Gophers, who will face Michigan State tomorrow at noon. Minnesota improved to 22-9 on the year while Northwestern falls to 17-13. Minnesota used a 14-0 run late in the second half to pull out the win. The Gophers had built a 12-point lead early in the second half but the Gophers went on a four-minute scoring drought that allowed Northwestern to go on a 10-0 run to take the lead at 49-47 with under eight minutes remaining. However, the Gophers used solid defense to re-emerge. The Gophers held Northwestern without a field goal for over seven minutes during the run. Devron Bostick provided a huge spark for Minnesota with 11 points and four rebounds, leading a Gopher bench that netted 29 points. Ralph Sampson added nine points, six rebounds and five blocks. Overall, Minnesota blocked a school tournament record 11 shots. The Gophers broke open the game midway through the first half. After Kevin Coble scored Northwestern's first eight points and put the Cats up 8-6, Devron Bostick gave the Gophers a boost off the bench and started a 16-0 run. Bostick hit a three and put back a Blake Hoffarber miss to put the Gophers up 13-8. After a Devoe Joseph three, Colton Iverson picked off a Wildcat pass and took it the distance for a fastbreak dunk. A Bostick dunk capped the 16-0 run, giving the Gophers a 22-8 lead with 8:18 left. The Wildcats pulled within nine at 22-13 but the Gophers managed to keep a double-digit lead for much of the remainder of the half. Bostick capped an impressive 12-minute stretch of playing time with a driving layup at the 3:14 mark to give the Gophers a 29-17 lead. A 6-0 Gopher run on consecutive threes by Lawrence Westbrook and Damian Johnson pushed the Minnesota lead to 42-30 with 16:00 remaining in the half. After the run, Minnesota went on a four-minute field goal drought, allowing Northwestern to pull within six. After a Westbrook basket, Northwestern went on an 8-0 run to knot the game at 47-47 with 7:59 left. Northwestern took its first lead since early in the first half when Thompson hit a runner in the lane, capping a 10-0 run. Ralph Sampson finally ended the run and a five-minute scoring drought with a basket and was fouled by Coble. Sampson made the free throw to put Minnesota back in front 50-49.

Recap: Minnesota battled hard against top-seeded Michigan State March 13 in the Big Tournament quarterfinals but came up short in a 64-56 loss to the Spartans. Damian Johnson led Minnesota with 19 points as Minnesota fell to 22-10. The Gophers await their NCAA Tournament fate on Sunday evening. The Gophers forced 15 turnovers but were unable to overcome a poor free throw shooting effort. Minnesota converted just 13-of-27 attempts. After a strong offensive first half, the Gophers have two five-minute scoring droughts in the second half that were the difference for Michigan State and shot 10-of29 in the second half. Minnesota made an early 9-0 run in the first half to open a 9-3 lead. Westbrook accounted for six of the points during the run including a steal that turned into a fastbreak layup. The Gophers led 19-15 with 12:29 to go after a Paul Carter basket and free throw but the Spartans were able to take the lead at 23-22 on two free throws by Marquise Gray. The Gophers went back up 2523 on a Devron Bostick turnaround jumper and the teams traded leads four times in the final four minutes. Baskets by Chris Allen and Kalin Lucas in the final minute gave Michigan State a 33-30 halftime lead. Bostick led Minnesota with eight first half points while Allen had 12 for the Spartans. Minnesota made 10-of-24 field goals (41.7) while Michigan State hit 11-of 25 (44.0). Michigan State built its first significant lead early in the second half. A 100 Spartan run broke open a one-point game. A Raymar Morgan layup with 11:45 on the clock gave MSU a 46-36 edge. Minnesota trimmed the deficit back to six after Bostick hit a fade away jumper and Damian Johnson picked off a Spartan pass and took it for a dunk on the other end. Goran Suton pushed the Spartan lead back to nine with a three at 49-40 with 8:46 remaining. Michigan State built its lead to 12 but Minnesota had one last push in the closing moments. Paul Carter scored and was fouled with 1:42 left to trim the deficit to seven at 58-51. After forcing a Spartan turnover, Damian Johnson drove to the basket and scored to pull to 58-53 with 1:33 to go. The Spartans managed the game well in the final minute to emerge with the win, making 5-of-6 free throws.

Recap: The University of Minnesota men's basketball team fell to Texas 76-62 Mar. 19 in the first round of the NCAA Tournament at the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, NC. The 10th-seeded Gophers, back in the Big Dance for the first time since 2005, couldn’t contain Longhorns' guard A.J. Abrams, which eventually led to the downfall of the Maroon and Gold. Abrams hit eight three-pointers - including four-straight to break the game open midway through the second half - and finished with a game-high 26 points to lead seventh-seeded Texas (23-11 overall) to victory. Damion James and Dexter Pittman added 18 and 17 points, respectively. Lawrence Westbrook paced the Gophers with 19 points. Damian Johnson scored 13 points and Paul Carter grabbed seven rebounds for Minnesota, which ends its season at 22-11 overall. Westbrook hit a three to start the game for the Gophers, which propelled Minnesota on a 13-3 run to start the game. But the Gophers would hit just three more from beyond the arc after that, finishing the contest 4-of-13 (30.8 percent) from downtown. Meanwhile, the Longhorns were scorching from distance all night long. Paced by eight three’s from Abrams, Texas connected on 11-of-20 three-pointers (55 percent). For the game, Minnesota shot 40.7 percent from the field, while the Longhorns shot 47.4 percent. Back-to-back three-pointers by Blake Hoffarber and Westbrook in the final minute of the half pulled the Gophers to within one, 36-35, with time winding down in the half. But Abrams hit a three of his own right before the halftime buzzer sounded to give Texas a 39-35 lead heading into the locker room. The Longhorns opened up an eight-point lead moments into the second half following another three by Abrams. To their credit, the Gophers pulled to within three, 47-44, following a layup by Westbrook with 14:53 to go in regulation and Minnesota looked set to continue its comeback. From there, Minnesota’s offense went stagnant down the stretch and the Longhorns built a 16-point lead before exiting the Gophers from the 2009 NCAA Tournament.

L.J. COOKE 28 seasons 250-135-2 Known as the father of Golden Gopher basketball, Dr. Cooke was hired in 1897 to manage the physical education department and direct the new gymnasium. He is the winningest coach in school history. Cooke was the physical director at the Minneapolis YMCA before coming to Minnesota. In his 28-year tenure, the longest for any U of M basketball coach, Cooke led the Golden Gophers to three Big Ten titles (1911, 1917, 1919) and two national crowns (1902, 1919). He coached nine All-Americans, including Minnesota’s first, center George Tuck (1902). Cooke stayed on at the U as a professor and assistant athletic director until his retirement in 1936. In 1938, the university honored him, naming the new athletics administration building Cooke Hall.

year-by-year results HAROLD TAYLOR 3 seasons 19-30 Taylor undertook the difficult task of succeeding Cooke in the fall of 1924. A former high school coach and Cooke’s assistant for one year, Taylor and his teams enjoyed tremendous fan support, exceeding the 2,000-seat capacity of the Armory and moving to the 6,000-seat Kenwood Armory. Despite the attendance, Taylor did not have a lot of success on the court. His best season was the 1924-25 campaign when the Gophers finished sixth in the Big Ten, and he was let go two years later for not producing enough wins.

DAVE MacMILLAN 18 seasons 196-156-0 Known as the “Canny Scot,” MacMillan came to the University of Minnesota in 1927. He played basketball at Oberlin College for two years before turning pro with the New York Celtics. After his playing career ended, MacMillan spent seven years as head coach at the University of Idaho before coming to Minnesota. Known for their tight ball control, strong defense and passing, MacMillan’s Gopher teams earned a share of the Big Ten title in 1937 and second-place finishes three other years. MacMillan ended his first stint at the helm in the spring of 1942.

An all-conference athlete at Carleton College, he earned his master’s and Ph.D. from Columbia. Nordly’s coaching style was much different than McMillan’s as he allowed his players to shoot more. He guided the Gophers for two seasons before resigning in January of 1945 to serve as a civilian consultant on athletics for the U.S. Army in Paris.

DAVE MacMILLAN 18 seasons 196-156-0 MacMillan was reappointed Minnesota’s head coach in the summer of 1945. He benefited from several promising newcomers and returning war veterans and led the Golden Gophers to two 14-7 seasons. The 1947-48 season was less successful (10-10), and MacMillan asked athletics director Frank McCormick to assign him different duties. One of the most popular coaches in school history, more than 300 people attended MacMillan’s retirement party in 1948.

year-by-year results JIM MOLINARI

ORLANDO “TUBBY” SMITH

1 season 7-17

1st season 20-14

Jim Molinari took over for Dan Monson seven games into the 2006-07 season after Monson resigned. The former head coach at Bradley, Molinari won his first game vs. Arizona State and his first Big Ten game against Purdue. An injury to center Spencer Tollackson in the second Big Ten game at Wisconsin forced the starting center to miss eight games. The Gophers were 2-6 during that stretch. Molinari was replaced by Tubby Smith in March of 2007.

Tubby Smith came to Minnesota after 10 seasons at the University of Kentucky. His inaugural Golden Gopher team finished 20-14 overall and 810 in the Big Ten Conference. The 11-win turnaround from 2006-07 is the largest season turnaround in school history and was tied for the secondbest turnaround in Division I in 2007-08. Also, the five-win improvement in conference play was the second biggest conference turnaround in 2007-08.

RobertBRUININKS

administration

University President

Robert H. Bruininks was appointed the 15th president of the University of Minnesota on November 8, 2002. He has served the University for 40 years, formerly as a professor, dean, and executive vice president and provost. Transforming the U For the past four years, Bruininks has overseen a transformative strategic positioning effort at the University that has raised the bar considerably for the University's academic profile, its service to students and the community, and its stewardship of resources. Already, the results of this intensive effort are visible. In the recent years, the University has undertaken initiatives including: • the adoption of aggressive new four-year graduation goals for each campus • the development of student learning and development outcomes that clearly outline what all University students should know and be able to do at graduation, regardless of academic program • the implementation of tuition reforms enabling many students to save significantly on the total cost of education • the revision of the faculty tenure and promotion code to better recognize and reward outstanding scholarship in all its forms "The University has undertaken significant reform in the context of an increasingly competitive global market for resources, talent, and ideas," Bruininks said. "Our vision is to improve lives through the advancement of knowledge, and our strategic goal is aspirational, audacious, and, I believe, achievable: to become one of the top three public research universities in the world, with a deep and abiding cultural commitment to excellence in everything we do, across all our campuses, research and outreach centers, and offices statewide." Students and Affordability Innovations in the University's student experience, such as expanded undergraduate research and study abroad opportunities, a campus-wide Honors Program for the Twin Cities campus, and an increased emphasis on enhancing teaching and learning, have helped to fuel high student satisfaction rates, increased applications and enrollment, and significantly improved graduation rates. With more than 65,000 students enrolled system-wide—including more than 50,000 on the Twin Cities campus alone—the University of Minnesota is one of the nation's largest.

Both as a faculty member and as an administrator, Bruininks has worked to advance the public mission and responsibilities of the University. He has been a leading advocate for responsible stewardship and reform in higher education, including the strategic reorganization of University of Minnesota Extension and the colleges of Design; Education and Human Development; and Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences to better serve the state, its citizens, and students. He has renewed the University's commitment to its responsibilities, fostering new opportunities for public engagement and economic development through initiatives including the Council On Public Engagement (COPE), the Outstanding Community Service Awards, the University Metropolitan Consortium, the College Readiness Consortium, and the Academic Corporate Relations Center (ACRC), as well as enhancing the University's focus on issues of sustainability through research structures including the Initiative for Renewable Energy and the Environment (IREE) and Institute on the Environment, and through numerous administrative initiatives and reforms. During his tenure at the University, Bruininks was instrumental in founding the National Center on Educational Outcomes, the Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Community Living, and the Institute on Community Integration. He has been honored with numerous awards, including the Kellogg Foundation National Leadership Fellowship. He is president emeritus of the American Association on Mental Retardation and has been elected a Fellow of the American Psychological Association and the American Psychological Society. Nationally, he serves on the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board, and chairs the board of the National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges; in Minnesota he serves as a member of the Itasca Project and the Minnesota Business Partnership. In 2007, Bruininks joined the NCAA Division I Board of Directors. He has also been instrumental in bringing Big Ten football back to the Twin Cities campus with the construction of TCF Bank Stadium, slated to open in Fall 2009. In addition to hosting home football games, the new stadium will provide a permanent home for the marching band, an important new venue for University and community events, and a prominent public gateway to the University's broader mission of education, research and public engagement.

Affordability for students here and at the University's four coordinate campuses remains a primary concern for the Bruininks administration. Launched in 2005, the Founders Free Tuition Program now covers full cost of tuition and required fees for low-income, Pell-eligible Minnesota students statewide. Once fully implemented, the award is expected to benefit 4,700 undergraduates across the University.

Named Executive of the Year by the Minneapolis St. Paul Business Journal in 2009 and Minnesotan of the Year by Minnesota Monthly in 2004, Bruininks regularly advocates on behalf of the University of Minnesota and its essential role as the state's economic engine. He is also a recognized national and international leader in higher education, serving as chair of the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges in 2008 and as a member of the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board.

In addition, Bruininks has made student scholarships the University's top fundraising priority. The Promise for Tomorrow scholarship drive reached its initial goal of $150 million in October 2006 and has now raised roughly $250 million in just five years. Approximately 7,000 students received privately funded scholarships and fellowships each year; the University's new goal is to help 10,000 students with privately raised financial assistance.

In November 2005, Bruininks led a group of Minnesota educators to China as part of the governor's trade delegation. In May 2006, he headed a delegation of University leaders to Norway to renew student exchange agreements and deepen research ties with that country's leading universities, and in May 2007, he led a delegation to Iceland to renew an historic 25-year agreement with the University of Iceland and expand upon it, particularly in the health sciences.

Leadership and Experience Bruininks's career has centered on child and adolescent development and policy research, and strategic improvement in the fields of pre-kindergarten to grade 12 and higher education. Initially joining the University's faculty as an assistant professor of educational psychology, he has authored or coauthored nearly 90 journal articles and more than 70 book chapters, as well as training materials and several standardized tests.

Personal Notes President Bruininks earned his bachelor of arts degree from Western Michigan University, and his master of arts and doctor of philosophy degrees from George Peabody College (now Vanderbilt University's Peabody College of Education and Human Development). He and his wife, Dr. Susan Hagstrum, have three grown sons and three grandsons. In their free time, they enjoy riding American Saddlebred horses and spending time at their cabin on northern Minnesota's Gunflint Trail.

JoelMATURI administration

Athletics Director

In his eighth year as director of athletics at the University of Minnesota, Joel Maturi has engineered a complete transformation of Golden Gopher athletics. Since being named the first director of athletics of Minnesota’s merged men’s and women’s departments on July 12, 2002, Maturi has combined an uncompromising vision of the future and his unique brand of leadership with a tireless dedication to guide Gopher athletics on a clear course toward becoming a model NCAA Division I athletics department. A native of Chisholm, Minn., Maturi’s tenure at Minnesota has been marked by significant positive change in virtually every aspect of the department. And from his focused efforts has emerged a level of broadbased achievement that year after year places Gopher Athletics among the nation’s most successful overall programs. Looking back, it’s easy to discern the building blocks of Minnesota’s success under Maturi. Fiscal responsibility, balanced budgets and refocused fund-raising efforts have yielded increased opportunities and unprecedented growth. The development of a first-class academic support program continues to see Gopher student-athletes earn their degrees at ever improving rates. A renewed emphasis on NCAA compliance has ushered in a new era of integrity. And a distinctive ability to foster cooperation as a key and trusted member of University Robert Bruininks’ leadership team has resulted in unprecedented levels of cross-campus collaboration. The rapidly evolving world of intercollegiate athletics in the 21st century requires bold and innovative leadership. And that’s exactly what Maturi brought to his home state’s flagship university when he assumed the helm of Gopher athletics in the summer of 2002. To say that Minnesota’s athletics department was at a tipping point when Maturi arrived is to perhaps understate the challenges facing the program. Gopher Athletics was projected to run a $31 million deficit over the next four years and in order to help cope planned to eliminate three sports. Building a state-of-the-art stadium to bring football back to campus was considered a pipe dream. Undaunted, Maturi swiftly set in motion a plan to restore the financial integrity of Gopher athletics. Balanced budgets followed and all three sports were retained. Most significantly, however, the dream of returning Gopher football to its rightful place campus is now a reality as Minnesota opened the doors to the 50,000-seat TCF Bank Stadium – the Big Ten’s first new on-campus football stadium built since 1960. Upgrades to virtually every Minnesota Athletics facility have also taken place under Maturi, including a $600,000 renovation of the playing surface of historic Williams Arena this past summer, and funds are currently being raised to support the construction of a new stadium for Gopher Baseball. In addition to leading the way to meet the Gophers’ needs for world-class facilities, Maturi’s tenure has been marked by continual athletic and academic success by Minnesota’s 25-sport department. Gopher athletic programs have accumulated four national championships, 30 Big Ten or WCHA regular season titles and five conference postseason crowns. Minnesota has also placed in the top 30 of the Learfield Directors’ Cup final standing each year of his term, including a 14th-place finish in 2008-09 that ranks as the third-best finish in school history that saw Gopher teams claim six conference titles, advance 20 teams to postseason competition, produce 40 first team All-Big Ten honorees and 41 All-Americans, 257 academic all-conference selections (second-most in the Big Ten) and 12 CoSIDA academic all-district award winners. Minnesota was also among just a handful of programs to see its football team earn a bowl berth (Insight Bowl) and have both its men’s and women’s basketball teams as well as its baseball program qualify for the NCAA Tournament. Gopher women’s hockey, meanwhile, made its sixth appearance in the Frozen Four. Gopher Athletics once again was trusted to host several prestigious postseason championships during 2008-09, headlined by NCAA first- and second-round competitions in both men’s basketball and men’s ice hockey as well as the men’s gymnastics championships. It was hardly an unprecedented season under Maturi for the Gophers, who claimed three Big Ten crowns, advance 16 sports to postseason play, produce 225 academic all-conference selections and 19 academic alldistrict honorees in 2007-08. The 2006-07 season was a banner year as well as wrestling won its third NCAA championship in the seven years. The Gopher wrestlers were also one of six teams to take home conference championships. The men’s swimming and diving team won its fifth Big Ten title in seven years and placed 10th at the NCAA Championships. The men’s hockey team won the WCHA regular season and Final Five titles while the women’s indoor track and field team won its first Big Ten crown. Rowing also won its first Big Ten title and posted a program-best sixth place finish at the NCAA Championships. Men’s golf added its third Big Ten title since 2002 and posted a strong ninth place finish at the NCAA Finals. The Gopher athletic department finished 20th in the Director’s Cup in 2006-07, marking the 13th straight year that Minnesota has placed in the top 25 of the rankings that chart overall athletic success among all NCAA Division I programs. During the 2005-06 academic year, Maturi guided a department that produced 32 All-Americans, four conference championships and 22 individual conference championships. Minnesota also produced 40 firstteam All-Conference performers, five Academic All-Americans and 14 Academic All-District honorees. The Gopher wrestling and women’s hockey team each finished second in the nation, while men’s golf (3rd), women’s cross country (9th), men’s gymnastics (9th) and men’s swimming & diving (11th) added four more top-15 national finishes. Wrestling, women’s gymnastics, men’s hockey and women’s track & field each won Big Ten Conference team titles. Overall, 16 of the Gophers’ 25 sports finished in the top three of the conference during 2005-06, and 19 advanced to NCAA postseason competition. The Gopher football team qualified for its fourth consecutive bowl game and sixth in seven years with a trip to the Music City Bowl. The department also was involved in hosting several Big Ten, WCHA and NCAA Championships during the

202 * Minnesota Basketball

year, most notably the 2006 Division I Men’s Basketball Minneapolis Region Championship and the 2006 NCAA Women’s Frozen Four. Women’s rowing had its highest finish ever at the Big Ten Championships, rowing to a second-place finish on Lake Phalen in St. Paul. The Baseline Tennis Center hosted the Big Ten men’s tennis championships for the first time, while Ridder and Mariucci Hockey Arenas hosted women’s and men’s WCHA first round competition, respectively. In March of 2007, Minnesota became the first school to ever host the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Division I Swimming & Diving Championships in consecutive weeks. Across University Avenue, Williams Arena hosted the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball First and Second Rounds for the third time in four years. In 2003-04, the women’s hockey team won the national title for the second straight season while three women’s programs (women’s basketball, volleyball and women’s basketball) all reached their respective NCAA Final Fours. Volleyball made the championship match and basketball qualified for its first national semifinal. The Gophers won four conference titles in 200304 and two conference postseason titles. In Maturi’s first year as athletic director, Minnesota won five regular season titles while the men’s hockey team won the WCHA Final Five and continued the momentum into the NCAA Tournament where it won its second straight national championship. On the academic front, more than 50 percent of Gopher student-athletes have maintained a grade point average of 3.0 or higher and 27 student-athletes have earned Academic All-America status during Maturi’s tenure. The foundation for Gopher football’s return to campus was laid during the 2004-05 academic year, when Maturi was instrumental in adding credibility to the Gopher stadium campaign by negotiating a $35 million corporate sponsorship with TCF Bank for naming rights to the new on-campus stadium. It was the largest corporate sponsorship of its kind involving college football. Maturi’s efforts were even more legitimized in May 2006 when the Minnesota State Legislature approved overwhelmingly to support the Gopher football return to campus. The bipartisan vote will allocate $137 million to the $288.5 million project. In addition to TCF Bank Stadium and the new playing surface in Williams Arena, Maturi has overseen complete renovations to both the men’s and women’s basketball locker rooms and the football training and equipment rooms in the Gibson-Nagurski Football Complex. In March of 2007, Maturi oversaw the grand opening ceremony for a new boathouse that serves as the home of the women’s rowing program on the MIssissippi River. Maturi, 64, increased his leadership role within the Big Ten and NCAA during the past few years by being named to several prominent committees, most notably the NCAA Division I Management Council. He has served as the Management Council’s liaison to the NCAA Division I Student-Athlete Advisory Committee for the past year. Maturi is has also served as a member of the NCAA Division I Men’s Ice Hockey Committee, and will chair this committee during the 2007-08 season. Prior to his arrival, Maturi was the Director of Athletics at Miami University (Ohio). At Miami, Maturi was responsible for the management and leadership of 19 sports programs, all support staffs and nearly 600 student-athletes. His first season at Miami was an extremely successful one. The synchronized skating team won a national championship, the men’s basketball team reached the NCAA Sweet 16, the volleyball team earned its first NCAA Tournament win, the men’s cross country team advanced to the NCAA meet and the football team won 10 games against an impressive schedule. That year, six teams won Mid-American Conference titles while five coaches garnered Coach of the Year honors. During his tenure at Miami, Maturi spearheaded fund-raising efforts for two important and necessary projects. In his final year, the Walter L. Gross Jr. Family Student-Athlete Development Center was opened and a new baseball field, McKie Field at Hayden Park, was dedicated. Maturi also made an impact on the campus and the community in Oxford, Ohio. He was a recipient of a Campus Impact Award, received an award from the Butler County Board of Mental Retardation & Developmental Disabilities for his efforts to help those in need, the Miami Alumni Association’s A.K. Morris Award for his service to the Association and the Myrtis Powell Building Community Award. In addition, he chaired the Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA) executive council in 2001-02, and also served as the chair of the NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship Committee for Region 4 and was the liaison for the men’s basketball coaches in the MAC.
