This is Amelia Rayno's third 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.

Gophers target J.P. Macura of Lakeville commits to Xavier

Posted by: Amelia Rayno under College basketball Updated: September 9, 2013 - 11:05 PM

J.P. Macura, a sharpshooting senior from Lakeville North, announced via Twitter late Monday night that he has committed to play for Xavier.

That marks another near-miss for new Gophers coach Richard Pitino. Macura, a 6-5 shooting guard and the No. 104 recruit in the country per Rivals.com, visited Xavier two weekends ago. He was offered a scholarship by Pitino in July.
