Friday night Gopher basketball is kicking off college basketball season with a real bang! It's the "Gopher hoops all-star Friday night"
"Gopher All-Star Friday Night" will have the look of NBA All-Star weekend and feature a skills competition, a three-point competition, a dunk contest and a scrimmage.
Also included in "Gopher All-Star Friday Night" will be the half-court shot contest. Fans will randomly be chosen and given the name of a current Gopher player. The player will shoot the shot and if made, the fan will win a Gopher Basketball prize pack. All fans chosen will be given a ball autographed by Gopher players.
