Overall, nine of Minnesota's matches were won or lost 1 up. One was halved. The Gophers won one 2&1 match and lost another.
“To come away from the Big Ten Match Play with four close matches was perfect preparation for the spring season,” head coach John Carlson said. “Getting wins at the 1, 2 and 3 spots with Jose, Jon and Runar was important, and will certainly continue to be a key to the rest of our season.”
Illinois won the Big Ten Match Play. The Illini beat Michigan in the title match.
Up next on the Gophers’ schedule is a trip to the Puerto Rico Classic in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico. The tournament will run Feb. 22-24.
