Terrible Weekend for Gopher Fans

If you're a Gopher sports' fan, Friday and Saturday were about as bad as things could get. The Gopher hockey team outplayed St. Cloud Friday night in St. Cloud and lost, and then played Saturday like they were punched in the gut all night long. The weekend sweep - SCSU's first over Minnesota since 2000 - puts the Gophers in a serious hole as the stretch run now has only five series remaining and the team is mired in seventh place.

The Gopher basketball team was poised to break its seven-game losing streak against Michigan State at home on Saturday and carried a 13-point lead in the second half. MSU led for the first time in the game's final two minutes and held on to win 65-64. The Gophers look poised for an NIT bid absent an unexpected run.

I'm calling a "snow day" for Sunday. DP will be back with some analysis and scenarios for both teams early next week.
