Gophers Gear Up For Holiday Tournament In Florida
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — The Gophers men’s basketball team is in Florida for a Thanksgiving weekend tournament.
They play DePaul on Thursday in the first round of the Old Spice Classic in Orlando, Fla. The Gophers (4-0) will then play on Friday against either Texas Tech or Indiana State. Their last game will be on Sunday. Dayton, Wake Forest, Arizona State and Fairfield are the teams on the other side of the bracket.
The Gophers women’s basketball team is also out of town — and in a warmer place — for the holiday weekend.
They’re in Moraga, Calif., for the Concord Hilton Tournament for a game on Friday against Quinnipiac and a contest on Saturday against either host Saint Mary’s or Virginia Tech.
