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.

This is the start of what fans across the country have been waiting for, for years.

The first of the 'Big Three' has apparently decided on an announcement date next week.

Travis' father, Nate, told Adam Zagoria of Zagsblog.com that his son will announce on November 8th, which is also the season opener for the Gophers, Duke and Stanford.

The 6-7 forward is choosing between Minnesota, Duke, Stanford and Gonzaga.

Travis, who is currently ranked No. 40 in the nation according to Rivals, visited Minnesota officially over the weekend -- the only of 'Big Three' locals, that includes Tyus Jones and Rashad Vaughn, to do so. Travis has done officials at every school remaining on his list. The favorite is still widely considered to be Duke.

Jones is also expected to make a decision this fall, although there is no official date yet. Vaughn has said he will wait until spring to decide.
