The University of Minnesota basketball team held its preseason media day on Monday afternoon at Williams Arena. The Gophers took their team picture before opening up the court to local media members. Mike Grimm and Corbu Stathes of the Gopher Radio Network held an interactive interview session which allowed fans to send in questions.
Head coach Richard Pitino, entering his first season at Minnesota, said that he has been impressed by the fan support for the program. He also discussed the team's fast-paced playing style and the improvements he has seen since his arrival.
Pitino said that the Gophers are anxious to play against opponents other than themselves. They will have their first chance to do so this Friday, when they will take on Cardinal Stritch in an exhibition game at 7 p.m.
