DANCING WITH THE GOPHERS. Two University of Minnesota teams are enjoying their tournament runs. Hindrocket at Power Line covers the Lady Gopher's wins over UCLA and Kansas State (would you rather be a No. 2 seed on the road or a No. 7 at home?) Kansas State essayed a triangle-and-two to contain Minnesota's Lindsey Whalen. That leaves the perimeter shooters with a lot of open looks. If they are shooting well, with the three-point rule, good stuff can happen.
The Elder at Fraters Libertas watched the Skating Gophers win the Western Collegiate Hockey Association's finals from the Cities. As he notes, "Let the real March Madness begin." Good evening, hockey fans!
