The Gopher Basketball team faced currently number 3 in the RPI rankings Ohio State over the weekend. Ohio state proved with authority why they are ranked so high over the Gophers who are on the opposite end of the scale in talent. While the Gophers did give them a game for the first 12 minutes of the contest, it was an easy win for the Buckeyes. In today's photo, Greg Oden is about to block the attempted shot by Brandon Smith. The final score for this one, Ohio State 85, Minnesota 67.
It should be noted, Williams Arena, where the Golden Gophers play, is the last remaining raised floor for a college team in the country.
