Start spreading the news, the Gophers are live from New York! Even though it's Tuesday night and not Saturday, the Gophers are still fired up for their NIT semifinal game against the Washington Huskies (tonight at 8 p.m. on ESPN2).
Go Gophers! Andre Hollins

Go Gophers!

Yes, it's the Big Apple, but the Gophers have been playing it pretty low key here in NYC. After arriving late Sunday night, Tubby Smith's squad did some studying yesterday morning before speaking meeting with both Minnesota and New York media. Click here for a photo gallery from Tuesday's activities.

Tubby also spoke a few words at the NIT opening luncheon at the Marriott Marquis hotel near Times Square. Watch what Tubby had to say here; he's introduced by ESPN's Fran Fraschilla, one of the TV analysts for tonight's game. (Just an FYI -- Tubby's wallet was not actually stolen, that's one of his favorite jokes!):

After a short practice at NYU yesterday afternoon (check out the photos in this gallery), the Gophers attended the official NIT opening banquet Monday night (at the prestigious Loeb Boathouse near Central Park). This morning (Tuesday), the Gophers had an hour-long shootaround at Madison Square Garden, the "World's Most Famous Arena" as it is branded. It was a pretty cool experience for the guys; check out this short video from the shoot around:

Tip-off is tonight at 8 p.m. on ESPN2 -- be sure to watch and follow us on Twitter (@MNGopherHoops and @GopherAthletics) for live updates throughout the game!
