Golden Nugz 8.4.11- Trevor Mbakwe selected to play in World University Games

Great news for Gopher hoops as senior forward Trevor Mbakwe was selected to play in the World University Games for Team USA. The team will participate in the Games in China August 12-23. Mbakwe should get some big minutes, perhaps even as a starter, which will be valuable experience for him heading into his senior year. A senior year where Minnesota needs him to be dominant. This should only help boost his confidence and his level of play.

CBSSports.com's head college football writer Dennis Dodd says to count on Jerry Kill getting the Gophers out of their hole.

Speaking of coach Kill, he will have a press conference today at 11:30am to preview training camp and the upcoming season. You can watch it here live on Gophersports.com.
