Gopher Sports...the week ahead

A new feature I thought I'd lob out there. Below is a look at what is going on in Gopher athletics this week. I've included all sports, not just the ones we typically cover. Some may find it interesting to keep cursory tabs on the minor sports at the U. The week starts very slow but picks up with Gopher hoops at MSU on Wed, a big weekend series with UND on Fri/Sat and then men's basketball at Indiana on Sunday after the Vikings game. Maybe next week I'll start this with a brief recap of what happened last week.

Monday

  • nothing scheduled.

Tuesday

  • Women's Hockey win an exhibition vs. the US National team.

Wednesday

  • Another week and another road game against a Big Ten title contender. Gopher Men's Basketball heads to Michigan State for a 5:30 tip off on the Big Ten Network.

Thursday

  • Gopher women's basketball team hosts Purdue. Both teams currently sit at 3-2 in conference which is tied for second with a couple other teams.
