The Gophers lost the NIT championship 75-51 on Thursday to Stanford at Madison Square Garden.
According to the Minnesota Daily, part of the problem was the Gophers having 22 turnovers, with 13 of those coming in the second half.
They also report that the star for the Gophers was Rodney Williams, he scored 12 of the team's 51 points. That being said he also was in foul trouble for the duration of the game.
According to Fox Sports, the Gophers shot just 37.3 percent and made only three of 13 three point shots.
The Gophers have won two previous NIT championships, one in 1998 and one in 1993. The 1998 title was "vacated" because of academic fraud.
