Gopher Basketballers work out with Wolves
Word on the street is that three of the Gopher basketball seniors were a part of the Minnesota Timberwolves workout sessions. I don’t think Dan Coleman, Spencer Tollackson or Lawrence McKenzie have what it takes to play in the NBA, but what better place to try out than in your home state? Actually, if the Timberwolves want to fill more seats at the Target Center next year, they may want to consider adding one of those Gophers to the roster. They certainly aren’t going to be able to sell Timberwolves tickets with the team they have right now. A little creative marketing wouldn’t hurt and that means finding a personality that Minnesota basketball fans already like.
