It might be dreary and nap-inducing in Minneapolis today, but sunshine out there somewhere.
As a reminder of that, brackets for basketball’s slew of Thanksgiving tournaments, often set in tropical locales (not you, Great Alaska Shootout, sorry) were released this morning, including this year’s Puerto Rico Tipoff that the Gophers are participating in.
Minnesota, as previously announced, will face Temple and talented 6-5 guard Quenton DeCosey in the first round – that game is scheduled for November 19 at 10:30 a.m. CT.
In the second round, the Gophers would either face Butler or Missouri State before getting either Miami, Mississippi State, Utah or Texas Tech on the final Sunday in either the Championship game or one of the consolation matchups.
Check out the full bracket here.
