Minnesota’s senior class with Coach Borton last seven games on the road. The Big Ten Tournament will once again be contested in Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. “Our schedule is tough and the challenge begins right away in November,” said Borton. “We have to be ready for battle quickly. We have a lot of games in the first couple of weeks of the season. As coaches, you always want more days between games to practice, to teach. We don’t have that luxury. We’re setting the tone for the season right away. We have the mindset in place for November, and with our experience and leadership, we expect to be prepared for the Big Ten season and beyond the NCAAs.” A huge reward for a job well done is a definite motivator of the Gopher squad this season. An NCAA Tournament bid will bring with it the opportunity to play on their home court in Williams Arena as Minnesota plays host to the NCAA First and Second Rounds on March 21 and 23, 2010. The Golden Gophers strive to maintain the momentum fired by a big NCAA win from last season. They’ll need to fan the flames and build on this momentum from the very tip-off of the first game. Minnesota has the leadership and experience. The challenge is set – make the 2009-10 a fitting piece of the Minnesota tradition.
