Gophers' Nolen to be back tonight

Minnesota coach Tubby Smith expects to have point guard Al Nolen back for the 17th-ranked Gophers' next game.

Smith said Wednesday after practice that Nolen will play tonight against South Dakota State.

Nolen has missed the last five games because of a stress fracture in his foot. The senior is one of Minnesota's best defenders and a steady presence at the top of the key.
