Big Gopher basketball game tonight. It is fun that this team is playing well at the right time of the year and I fear there is some real optimism for next season. I do not believe that it is always so valuable to get extra games in the NIT, but for this team at their stage of development I think getting these extra games are a good thing.
Is this going to be a springboard for next year?
- Nate Sandell of 1500ESPN agrees that the NIT is serving a valuable purpose for these Gophers.
