Game Thread: Mankato vs. Minnesota 


Join GopherDigest to chat live about tonight's exhibition contest between the Mavericks of Mankato and the Minnesota Golden Gophers. 

Word is that Trevor Mbakwe will get significant playing time off the bench despite a recent DUI arrest. Should be interesting to see this experienced team with Mbakwe back on the floor. 

Tip is set for 7 pm CT.

Gophers just took the floor for warmups rocking the all-white jerseys. Tip is in 25 minutes.

As expected, Gophers will have a nice size advantage. MSU only has two players over 6-7.

I'm excited to see a healthy Dre Hollins play this year. Kid tore it up at the end of last season.

Like Mariucci, Williams' upgraded scoreboard and ribbon board look great. It really adds some life to such an old arena, makes it feel a bit more modern.

Fans are slowly filing in here. The Gophers had another great ticket deal, selling seats for just $5 to this game. I also saw that it is free to students with a student ID. They are doing an awesome job getting some more people to games with cheap tickets for basketball, football, and hockey.

Rodney with a very strong post move to get to the hoop. Gophers take a 2-0 lead.

Rodney uses his size on the smaller defender to another bucket. 4-0 MN.

Rodney with his second fall of the game. That one looked scary as his foot slipped out from under him. He stay in the game after getting up a bit slow.

MSU scores on a dunk. 8-4.

Gophers getting some easy buckets at the rim. Leading 12-4 without taking a jumper.

Dre just picked up his second foul. He will likely take a seat following the timeout.

Mav and Welch check in. Oto and Ingram waiting to enter the game.

Not a ton of fans here but a decent student turnout which is good to see for the Gophers.

Big Mo also entering the game to a huge applause for the Minnesota faithful. And he scores on his first touch of the game to even more applause.

Mo with a powerful and-1 down low.

Trevor Mbakwe enters the game for Mo. Students love having Mbakwe back.

Forgot to mention in this thread but the #1 recruit of 2014, Tyus Jones, is at the game watching the Gophers.

Rodney scores another basket inside, 32-17.

Bobby Jackson also is at Williams Arena. He was easily one of my favorite Gophers growing up.

Charles Buggs check in for his first action of the year.

Buggs gets called for a foul, MSU will shoot. The freshman is really thin but looks athletic and moves well.
