Tubby Smith

Dienhart: 'It's Shaka Smart or bust'

Tubby Smith did many good things while head coach at Minnesota. He won some big games, advanced the program to three NCAA tourneys and two NITs in six years on the job. But, the school decided today that all of that wasn’t enough. Smith was fired. Now what for the Golden Gophers, who join Northwestern as Big Ten schools in search of a coach? Many feel Smith wasn’t given enough time, that he was often in a tough spot because of injuries, poor facilities or defections. Call them excuses or true hurdles to progress—it doesn’t matter. Minnesota A.D. Norwood Teague is

Twitter: Reaction to Tubby Smith's firing

Tubby Smith is out at Minnesota. The coach was fired Monday, one day after the Gophers were knocked out of the NCAA tourney. Smith, 61, spent six seasons in Minneapolis, tallying a 124-81 overall mark (.605), including 46-62 (.426) in the Big Ten. The Gophers made three NCAA tourney appearances under Smith, however they only went 1-3. See the Twitter reaction to Smith’s firing in this post.

Minnesota fires Tubby Smith after 6 seasons

Minnesota fired Tubby Smith on Monday, cutting ties with the veteran coach one day after the Golden Gophers lost to Florida in the NCAA tournament. Athletics director Norwood Teague announced the decision Monday and said it was time for a “fresh set of eyes” on the program. The school will hold a press conference at 4 p.m. ET. Smith was 124-81 (.610) in six seasons at Minnesota, helping to bring the program back to respectability and ramping up expectations for a team hit hard by an academic cheating scandal. Smith won 20 games five times. But he went just 46-62 in

Big Ten Geeks: Weekend at Tourney's

When the dust settled on the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament, the Big Ten had four teams standing in the Sweet Sixteen. Here are some scattered thoughts on the action, bullet-point style: Wisconsin lost exactly the way I said it would—by going cold from long range. This is a perimeter-oriented team that does not shoot all that well from the perimeter, and that means that it’s bound to go ice cold at least once every few games. Unfortunately, that came in the very first round of the Tournament. I know Marshall Henderson is outspoken and scored a lot of

Where does Big Ten start rank in NCAA history?

With a 10-3 record and four teams advancing to the Sweet 16, how did the Big Ten’s start to the NCAA tourney compare to the best in NCAA history? That’s a great question, and turned to its resident statistician, Chris Antonacci, for the answer. See the numbers in this post. Before we get to the numbers, consider this: The Big Ten was one win away from tying the NCAA records – both held by the Big East in 2009 – for most wins in the Rounds of 64 and 32 (11) and most Sweet 16 teams (5). Big Ten,

Florida holds off Minnesota, 78-64

Mike Rosario scored 25 points and Florida used an overpowering first half to roll past Minnesota and into the NCAA tournament round of 16 for third consecutive year with a 78-64 win Sunday in the South Regional. The No. 3 seed Gators (28-7) shot a blistering 65 percent in the first half and led by 21 by halftime. The win earns Florida a return trip to the Lone Star State to play their next game at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington. Andre Hollins scored 25 points to lead the No. 11-seed Gophers (21-13).

Tough to top Big Ten's start to NCAA tourney

Yes, I realize Sunday features four games involving Big Ten teams. And yes, I realize the Big Ten could go 0-4. It isn’t likely, but it could happen. Regardless, it’s impossible to ignore what the Big Ten has done through the first three days of the Big Dance. In a tournament loaded with upsets (No. 15 Florida Gulf Coast over No. 2 Georgetown & No. 14 Harvard over No. 3 New Mexico, among others) and near-historical close calls (No. 1 Kansas vs. No. 16 Western Kentucky & No. 1 Gonzaga vs. No. 16 Southern), the Big Ten’s 8-1 start is

Minnesota vs UCLA

Quick hit: Gophers turn it around

The Gophers often found easy access to the rim, hitting 50 percent of their shots. And Minnesota was on fire from beyond the arc, hitting 9-of-16 (56 percent). No doubt, UCLA missed injured star freshman Jordan Adams, as the Bruins had a short rotation. Still, Minnesota deserves credit. This was an inspired effort by the Golden Gophers, who entered the game riding a three-game losing skein and losers of seven of the last 10 games. No matter, Minnesota lives to fight another day, as Tubby Smith notches his first NCAA win as Gophers coach after two one-and-down trips—2010 loss to

Gophers rise up, knock off UCLA

Andre Hollins scored 28 points and Minnesota rolled past punchless UCLA 83-63 on Friday night in the second round of the NCAA tournament, a game that could be Bruins freshman Shabazz Muhammad’s last in college and coach Ben Howland’s final one leading the program. Austin Hollins scored 16 for the 11th-seeded Gophers (21-12), who advanced to Sunday’s third round against No. 3 seed Florida in the South Regional. The Gophers eased some pressure on coach Tubby Smith by giving him his first NCAA tournament win in six seasons. Catch up on all the tourney action on our Big Ten scoreboard, and
