per Greder:

It isn’t just the usual coach speak when Ben Johnson praises California Baptist — the Gophers men’s basketball team’s opening-round opponent in the SoCal Challenge at 9:30 p.m. CT Monday.

Cal Baptist has not had a losing season since joining Division I in 2018-19 and is 3-1 this season after knocking off Washington 73-64 in Seattle on Thursday. The Lancers never trailed in the game against their Pac-12 foe, and are picked to finish in the middle of the Western Athletic Conference (WAC) this season.

“They are a good team,” Johnson said Saturday. “I’ve known about that program for a couple of years now. It’s no surprise or secret. Well coached. They got good talent. They’ve got skilled players. They really have a program on the up, and they are trying to build it.”


Go Gophers!!

I think they were one of the last undefeated teams last season. I know nothing of them this year but they have been competitive in the WAC.

Being an underdog to Cal Baptist is embarrassing....
