Minnesota Basketball loses Eric Curry for season due to knee injury

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-First Round-Minnesota vs Middle Tennessee State James Lang-USA TODAY Sports

I know we’re about to kick off the Minnesota football season, but there is breaking news to share and it’s not ideal.

Did I say not ideal? I meant NO GOOD VERY BAD NEWS. Eric Curry was a key part of the Gophers big turnaround as a freshman and was expected to continue to play a big role this season.

Curry often spelled Reggie Lynch when he into foul trouble (and he did so ably). That role will now be filled (hopefully) by Davante Fitzgerald but until we see him on the court we won’t know for sure.

We’ll have more to talk about on this front as the season approaches. For now, put it aside and enjoy the football game.
