The Richard Pitino Show, Episode 4

As the final stretch of the college basketball season begins, the Gophers are looking to snap a three-game losing streak and a long month of bad headlines--both on and off the court. 

After losing to Northwestern on Tuesday, the team has eight games left to improve on its 14-9 record. In that stretch, however, Minnesota plays No. 6 Michigan State and No. 3 Purdue, as well as No. 25 Michigan and a surging Nebraska team that's sitting in fourth place in the Big Ten--making for a gauntlet at the Gophers chase a spot in the NCAA tournament.

Fox 9's Hobie Artigue sat down with Justin Gaard of KFAN and former Gopher Quincy Lewis to talk about the team and how they're dealing with advertsity down the stretch as March rears its ugly head.
