Now that was a great weekend for Gopher fans. The big win by the men's basketball team was very nice but not as impressive as women beating #9-Ohio St. And the hockey team finally shook their Friday monkeys and earned a sweep over St. Cloud State.

My favorite takeaway from Saturday's win over Illinois was that Andre Hollins can actually play and will be a very good player for us. Amelia Rayno decided to write more about it.

"He was able to put the ball in his hand, because we recruited him as a point guard and I was impressed with the way he stepped up and made his free throws and just played like a very mature, senior player," coach Tubby Smith said. "And just being a freshman, just a special effort on his part."

I really was not expecting to see him playing that much down the stretch and in OT, but he played great and maybe this was his coming out party.
