If you didn't already know (I just saw it for the first time yesterday), the Star Tribune has a new Gopher basketball beat writer. Myron Medcalf has moved on to ESPN pastures and we are now going to be reading the words of Amelia Rayno.
The STrib Gold in the Barn blog remains the same and you can follow Amelia's twitter account for more info. Yesterday she discussed the best and worst case scenarios for this year's Gopher hoops squad.
- Here is a rather comprehensive list of all college basketball games to be aired on ESPN this year.
- Someone at Burnt Orange Nation has a nice intro to the world of advanced basketball stats. I am a big believer if possession and efficiency stats so reading this may help you understand what I will be oft referring to.
- The U's new president is confident that Kill can "absolutely" turn the program around.
- There are a lot of Andre Hollins articles lately. Marcus and Chip.
- The offensive line is getting younger by the game.
- Marcus Jones isn't big enough to help on the OL but he is maximizing every pound that he has to offer.
- Congrats to Kyle Rau for being named the WCHA Freshman of the Week.
