Gophers live chat: The Maui Invite, the Gophers' frontcourt, Joey King and more
November 20, 2013 — 10:29am
Well folks -- today represents the only day between last night's game against Coastal Carolina and tomorrow's game against Wofford, the shortest turnaround the team has had so far this year. And it doesn't slow down from there. On Saturday, the Gophers embark to Hawaii for the Maui Invitational, which starts on Monday and will feature three games in three days, starting with the tough draw in the opening round, No. 9 Syracuse. What do the Gophers need to do to between now and then? How is Joey King's injury looking? How will Minnesota come out of the tournament?
I'll be chatting away about these subjects (and bigfoot) and more starting at noon, so bring your questions and ask away!
