Gophers men's basketball starting season off strong

The Gopher men's basketball team is off a pretty decent start with a 7-1 record, but it's still early in the season.

While expectations are pretty low, the team is hoping to prove everyone wrong.

Last year was a year to forget for the Gophers, struggling on the court with suspensions and a scandal off of it.

But now, the team seems refocused and ready to start the season with an early run. Eight games against non-conference opponents do not make a season, but it’s a sign that good things could be ahead.
