Minnesota Basketball: Big Ten All Conference Selections Announced - Gophers Only Named To Honorable Mention

Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

In news that shouldn't be totally shocking, no Gophers made the First, Second, or Third teams.

Another year without any Gophers being recognized to any of the All-B1G teams. After placing Trevor Mbakwe onto the 3rd team last year, this year's Gopher squad returned to All Honorable Mention Status. Let's take a look at this year's award winners:

THE #TAKES

- Hats Off to Andre Hollins and DeAndre Mathieu! Both are deserving of recognition. I just wish the year had gone differently and they'd had the chance to be higher up the list.

- Overall though, the results are not terribly surprising. You finish like the Gophers did and you have to have an pretty incredible stat-line to jump off the Honorable Mention list (see: Mbakwe, Trevor).

- A.J. Hammons on all defensive? I didn't watch much Purdue, but when he played MN the guy never impressed me. I mean, he impressed upon me that he should have done a lot more. He didn't make me think he was all B1G defensive. I'm sure there are stats that justify it but I'm enjoying a beer on my deck and can't be bothered to look. #TAKES

- Go away Nick Stauskas, no one likes you or your quality level of play.

- The media has a hard on for Aaron Craft.

- The media should be ashamed for recognizing a whiny cake eating flopper like Will Sheehey. Just saying...

- As my Madison Gopher buddy said yesterday night, Nigel Hayes is going to be a pain in the ass.

- Tim Miles, you're not getting the concept that Nebrasketball isn't supposed to be good. Time to get with the program and go coach elsewhere so I can like you without worrying about your team causing trouble in the standings.

- The way Sam Dekker's last name is spelled annoys me. I blame Bo Ryan.
