Trevor Mbakwe has all over the headlines for the wrong reasons in the last couple weeks, it’s true.
We’re not going to dismiss any of that – it’s not something Mbakwe has taken lightly either. But we all know what the cure for negative press and distractions is: winning. And the fact of the matter is, Mbakwe is being heralded – around the league and around the country -- as the piece to help the Gophers do just that.
Monday, Mbakwe was named Big Ten Network’s No. 4 player in the conference, calling him the best “glass-cleaning in the Big Ten” and “darn near impossible to stop” in the paint.
But that’s not the only high praise Mbakwe has received lately, with the Gophers looking ahead to a promising season.
