ROSEVILLE -- A man apparently shot and killed himself outside a Roseville Montessori school on Monday afternoon. The 48-year-old Falcon Heights man was not identified Monday. Police were initially called...
Joe Mauer wasn’t even sure how long his lunch meeting with new Twins manager Paul Molitor lasted a few days ago. He just knew it was greatly enjoyable and that “time kind of flew by.”
Minnesota’s premier college men’s hockey program for years has officially lost its golden hue
Minnesota ranks last in the Big Ten in free-throw shooting in conference games, hitting 61.7 percent. If the season ended today, the Gophers, who play Saturday against Illinois (13-7, 3-4) at Williams Arena, would be one of the worst free-throw shooting teams in program history
Randy Breuer was at a charity golf tournament in Faribault when University of Minnesota athletics director Norwood Teague called to inform him the school would be retiring his maroon-and-gold basketball jersey. It was something the 7-foot-3 Lake City, Minn., native had been waiting to hear for a long time. So long that, he says, he had given up hope.
Andrew Wiggins came to the Timberwolves with a reputation for stepping up in some games and fading to the periphery in others. His first few weeks in the NBA did little to change that. In November, the rookie swingman scored what was then a career-high 29 points against Sacramento then two games later mustered only three against the Los Angeles Lakers. In a trio of games in mid-December, Wiggins strung together scoring nights of nine, five and five points.
Gophers coach Richard Pitino always said he had a collection of good players but no elite ones. For one half Tuesday night, Andre Hollins looked like he could carry his team to its second straight Big Ten win.
Nobody knew if or when Andre Hollins was going to break out of his Big Ten shooting slump. The senioritis that also affected point guard DeAndre Mathieu — and last season got Hollins’ friend and teammate Austin Hollins — was tough to overcome. But Hollins did it with the help from coaches and teammates and a solid dose of confidence. His 31 points on 7-for-10 shooting from three-point range in Saturday’s 89-80 victory over Rutgers was a sign that he still can carry the team at times.
The NFL struck back at Adrian Peterson and the players association on Friday, arguing that Commissioner Roger Goodell legally suspended the Vikings running back and asking a federal judge to dismiss his lawsuit. The league claims U.S. District Court Judge David Doty has no authority to overrule an arbitrator who upheld Goodell’s suspension of Peterson for the final six games of the 2014 season after he used a switch to whip his 4-year-old son.
It was three and a half months ago that the frustration reached its apex. And it seemed as if everyone was walking around, hands in the air, saying the same thing: “Four years of this *&^%.” “What a joke!”
