Gopher Basketball

Hi, my name is Emily Fox and this is my very first blogging experience. I am a junior at the University of Minnesota and studying journalism. I am also a memeber of the women's basketball team, which is really the reason I chose to come to the U. A combination of the academic and athletic oppourtunities the University of Minnesota offers made my choice fairly easy. My past two years here have been amazing. Being a student athlete is surely a challenge, but one I take pride in doing my best.
My favorite time of the year is coming up....Basketball Season!!!!!! We actually have our first exhibition game tomorrow against University of Minnesota at Mankato and I am super excited. Our team has been working so hard this past summer and pre-season, and are ready have a successful year. We have all our players returning from last year, minus one, and are more experienced and confident than ever. Although we are predicted to finish 6th in the Big Ten according to pre-season rankings, we feel we are going to surprise a lot of people and our goal is to contend to win a Big Ten championship! Well, that's all I have for now. I will give an update on how our game goes tomorrow. Go Gophers!
