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.

Steve Goodson to leave Minnesota

UPDATE: A source tells the Star Tribune that Goodson will remain at the university for two weeks, after which he is leaving for a new college basketball job, out of conference.

Richard Pitino will soon be on his third director of basketball operations since accepting the Gophers' head basketball job a little less than two months ago.

Steve Goodson plans to leave the Unversity of Minnesota, a team source tells the Star Tribune.

Goodson was previously on former coach Tubby Smith's staff as special assistant to the head coach before being hired by Pitino in April.

Pitino had originally hired Mike Balado, an assistant of his at Florida International in that role, but Balado left after getting an offer from FIU's new head coach, Anthony Evans. Balado eventually took a job at Louisville.

There is no news yet about who will replace Goodson or where he is headed.
