The University of Minnesota women’s basketball team suffered its first loss of the season on Thursday. But it took a trip to Mexico for the Gophers to drop a 58-46 decision to Richmond. Rachel Banham and Micaella Riche led Minnesota with 12 points apiece but the Gophers only shot 31-percent from the field in losing to the Spiders. They play James Madison this afternoon in the next round of the Cancun Challenge.
