University of Minnesota Men's Basketball coach Tubby Smith always stresses to his players that giving back to the community is extremely important. The basketball players, as well as all of the Golden Gopher student athletes, are heavily involved in the community thanks to programs headed up by  Peyton Owens and Anissa Lightner in the Student-Athlete Affairs office here at the "U'.
