Continued: 81-62 win over Lehigh in opener gives Gophers some good news

But the Gophers will have to continue for five more games without the 6-10, 250-pound Walker. He will miss next week’s game at Richmond, as well as the opening matchup at the Maui Invitational, when the Gophers face Syracuse.

“It’s going to be tough,” Eliason said. “We haven’t had that great of a rebound night yet. … We are just going to have to work hard, out-scrap people, do other kinds of things to make up for it, and that’s really all we can do.”

Said Pitino: “We support Mo, we love Mo. Can’t wait to get him back in Maui. He’s going to be a big help to our basketball team.”
