Minnesota Basketball Countdown: Matz Stockman till Gopher Hoops

35 days till Gopher Basketball tips off

NCAA Basketball: Louisville at Pittsburgh Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Believe it or not, Gopher Basketball is right around the corner. Practices have begun and games will be here before you know it. 35 days to be exact. And according to the roster on GopherSports, Matz Stockman will be wearing #35.

Matz Stockman
Pos: C
Ht: 7’0”
Wt: 240

An Oslo, Norway native who played for 3 years under Rick Pitino. He transfered from Louisville and will not be eligible to play this season. But the big man should plan a very important role next year after we graduate Reggie Lynch, Bakary Konate and Gaston Diedhiou.

The excitement for Stockman will be delayed for a year, but the excitement for Gopher Hoops should begin ASAP. This team is going to be talented and have at least a little bit more depth than it did a year ago. Just 35 days!
