Ugly Basketball


Recommended Posts

After watching the Gopher basketball game tonight, I decided that it was one of the ugliest games I have ever watched. Both teams looked awful. Over half way through the first half the score was 6 to 5. Watching that game was like pulling teeth. How in the world did the Gopher basketball program ever get reduced to that level of play. It is really sad.

The first half was very sluggish with neither team scoring until Coleman made a short jumper almost four minutes into the game. The Bison took a 5-2 lead with 13:14 to go but Minnesota went on a 12-0 run that spanned over six minutes to lead 14-5 with 6:57 remaining. McKenzie fueled the Gopher offense with two threes and a fastbreak layup consecutively. North Dakota State came right back and pulled within 16-14 on two free throws by Smith with just under four minutes to go in the half. The Bison kep the lead to two points before Coleman scored and was fouled with 1:27 left. He made the free throw and the Gophers took a 23-18 lead into the half. Both teams shot poorly with NDSU making just 6-29 from the field (20.7 percent) and Minnesota hit 10-31 (32.3 percent).
