155. Minnesota: Ben Johnson was the surprise hire in March. The Gophers alum could prove to be a savvy choice if he can recruit the territory he knows as well, or better, than any other candidate who interviewed. Minnesota is universally expected to be the worst Big Ten team; Johnson doesn't have one player getting minutes who played for the Gophers a season ago.

Thanks for pulling that together. I saw that in the article, but my phone was messing up the post, so I just posted the Gopher blurb.

In case anyone else was wondering, the Asheville Tournament consisted of the below rankings:

85. Western Kentucky
129. South Carolina
155. Minnesota
167. Princeton

They almost finished in reverse order.

I'd be interested to see where Minneosta would rank now. Are they still "universally expected to be the worst Big Ten team"? Nebraska hasn't looked very good. Northwestern is better?
