The Pam Borton Radio Show can be heard Monday night at 7:30 p.m. from the Stadium Village Applebee's on the campus of the University of Minnesota. Hosted by the Golden Gopher women's basketball radio team of Corbu Stathes and Lynnette Sjoquist, the show can be heard live on 1500 ESPN.
Fans are encouraged to join Borton, Stathes and Sjoquist at Applebee's to catch the show live, grab a bite to eat and enjoy a great atmosphere with their fellow Gopher faithful.
On tonight's show, the trio will take a look back at the Cancun Challenge, where the Golden Gophers posted a 2-1 record vs. Richmond, James Madison and Missouri last weekend, and will also look ahead to the Gophers' ACC/Big Ten Challenge showdown on Thursday vs. Virginia. The game is set for 7:00 p.m. at Williams Arena and will be broadcast live on BTN.
Junior Micaëlla Riché will be the player guest on tonight's show. The forward from Canada currently ranks 29th nationally with a .591 field goal percentage, while she also leads the Gophers in rebounds (56) and blocks. Riché also ranks second on the team in points (105) and points per game (15.0). Her scoring average is nearly double of what it was at the end of the season last year.
Following the Cancun Challenge, Minnesota will return home to face Virginia on Thursday, Nov. 29, in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. The Cavaliers are receiving 19 votes in the latest AP Poll.
