Continued: Hartman: Gophers' Pitino brings his own team to the Garden

• Even when the Twins didn’t have good teams over the years, they were still pretty much able to dominate Kansas City in the AL Central. But according to USA Today, the Royals could be a pennant contender this year. From June 1 until the end of last season, the Royals had more wins (64) than any team in baseball except for the Dodgers.

• Anthony Anderson, the running back who sparked Eden Prairie to three consecutive Class 6A titles, is going to attend Iowa Western Community College and then will likely join the Gophers in 2015.

• Once California lost to SMU 67-65 on a three-pointer by Nic Moore with 6.5 seconds left in an NIT quarterfinal Wednesday, the Gophers missed a chance to play against former Gopher Justin Cobbs, who scored 18 points on 8-for-11 shooting against the Mustangs and averaged 15.6 points per game this season. SMU’s coach is Larry Brown, the only coach in history to win an NCAA title (with Kansas in 1988) and an NBA title (with the Pistons in 2004).

• New Rivals.com ratings for high school basketball players in the class of 2015 included Alex Illikainen, a 6-9 forward from Grand Rapids, at No. 82 and Jarvis Johnson, a 6-1 guard at DeLaSalle, at No. 84. Both are being recruited hard by the Gophers.

• Carlos Morris, a 6-4 sophomore guard playing for Chipola College in Marianna, Fla., who has committed to Minnesota, led his team to the quarterfinals of the NJCAA tournament. He averaged 14.7 points per game. One of Morris’ teammates was Sam Cassell Jr., the son of former Timberwolves guard Sam Cassell, who has committed to Connecticut.

• Senior All-America Zach Siegmeier of the Gophers track team was named the Big Ten Field Athlete of the Week after clearing 5.40 meters in the pole vault at the Baldy Castillo Invitational at Arizona State last week. The mark is the second-best vault in the nation so far this season.

• The Gophers baseball team is scheduled to play the first game at new Siebert Field on Saturday against Michigan State at 2:05 p.m., when the temperature is expected to be 45 degrees. The Gophers pitching staff is led by junior righthander Ben Meyer, who has a 1.24 ERA in his past four starts. He has given up four runs in his past 29 innings.

 

Sid Hartman can be heard weekdays on 830-AM at 7:40, 8:40 and 9:20 a.m. and on Sundays at 9:30 a.m. shartman@startribune.com
