Live chat replay: Talking Big Ten tourney, NCAA tourney and beyond
March 3, 2014 — 1:29pm
So you got stuck in a meeting and missed my live chat? No problem. Here's the replay from the hourlong back-and-forth. We talked Charles Buggs Mania, the Gophers' tournament chances, recruiting, Bigfoot, whiskey options, how much I hate hockey and more. Read on.
This is Amelia Rayno's fifth season on the Gophers men's basketball beat. She learned college basketball in North Carolina (Go Tar Heels!), where fanhood is not an option. In 2010, she joined the Star Tribune after graduating from Boston's Emerson College, which sadly had no exciting D-I college hoops to latch onto. Amelia has also worked on the sports desk at the Boston Globe and interned at the Detroit News. Follow Rayno on Twitter @AmeliaRayno.
Given the rare break, coach Richard Pitino gave his team two days off immediately after and then rolled out what he dubbed a "fun" practice on Sunday before getting down to business on Monday and Tuesday.
