• The Twins’ first-round draft choice last month, shortstop Nick Gordon, has gotten off to a good start in rookie ball at Elizabethton, hitting .313 with one home run, two doubles, two triples, seven RBI and nine runs scored in 11 games.
• The Gophers men’s basketball team’s game against Louisville next season will feature a father-son coaching matchup, with Rick Pitino’s Cardinals going against Richard Pitino’s Gophers. The game will be played in Puerto Rico on Nov. 14 and be televised on ESPN. “The event is pretty closed to the public,” Richard Pitino said. “… It’s kind of a made-for-TV-type game as well as honoring the troops. It’s in an Army hangar and each team gets 65 tickets, which is not a lot. So it certainly is not, I don’t think, open for general admission or anything like that.”
• Jamaal Stephenson, the Vikings’ new director of college scouting replacing Scott Studwell, enters his 13th season with the club and was recognized by the Fritz Pollard Alliance as the NFC Scout of the Year in 2012. He is an Ivy League graduate, he was named to Brown University’s all-decade team for the 1990s and twice was an All-Ivy League defensive back.
• While there have been three Vikings coaches in the past nine years, director of sports medicine/head athletic trainer Eric Sugarman is in his ninth year with the team and worked for all three, including new coach Mike Zimmer. Sugarman has worked in the NFL for 18 years and has done a great job bringing many athletes, including running back Adrian Peterson and linebacker Chad Greenway, back from serious injuries.
