After taking a year off from hosting a tip-off dinner, the Minnesota women's basketball team reestablished its annual event for the 2011-12 season at Crave in Edina Monday night.
"The atmosphere was amazing and we had a nice turnout," head coach Pam Borton said of the event. "It was a great evening and we had a lot of fun. It turned out to be a pretty exciting event and a huge success with the fans."
Nearly 60 loyal fans were able to interact with the entire Golden Gopher coaching staff, including Borton and assistant coaches Curtis Loyd, Ted Riverso and Kelly Roysland. Fans heard a season preview about the team and were also able to as the staff any question that was on their minds.
"It is a great thing for us to be that accessible to our fans," Borton continued. "Each of us were able to answer their questions in front of the entire group. This is defnitely an event that we can build off of in the years to come."
