Gopher Men Play Today 13 Mar 14

 The Gophers take the floor tonight against Penn State looking to solidify a spot in the NCAA tournament.  To get there, most likely they’ll have to do some damage in the Big 10 tournament.  The Gophers beat the Nittany Lions on Sunday and will try and continue to build on that win.  Minnesota has never won the Big Ten Tourney.  The Gophers are 19-and-12 overall and 8-and-10 in the Big Ten.  The Nittany Lions are the 10th-seed after finishing 15-and-16 and 6-and-12 in conference play.  Tonight’s game begins at 5:30 p.m.  Meanwhile, the Golden Gopher women’s team has to nervously wait for nearly a week before it finds out if it made the NCAA Tournament.  The Gopher women completed the regular season and the Big Ten Tournament last week.  The 64-team women’s NCAA field will be announced on Monday.
