Golden Nugz - 03.14.11

This might be the worst Monday of the year. We all knew we weren't going to be participating in the NCAA Tournament but also being shut out of the NIT is incredible. Our free fall from a top 20 team to being outside of the top 100 is embarrassing.

But that isn't the biggest story of the weekend. Gopher hockey has NEVER lost a WCHA playoff series at home...until this year. Alaska-Anchorage came to Mariucci and handled the Gophers in two games. Nobody saw this one coming after the Gophers have been playing rather well lately.

Great Gopher career. 1,000 point scorer, top 20 all-time Gopher scorer and all-time leader in threes.

Best of luck as you fill out your brackets. I'll be giving you some very sound advice later this afternoon.
