Emboldened Gophers will have high hopes for next season

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) When the end of the season arrived, the Minnesota Gophers were worn out.

They could hardly be faulted for their fatigue. Executing this turnaround was going to require a lot of work.

With eight straight victories to recover from a 3-6 start in Big Ten play, Minnesota finished with its first winning conference record since 2005 and its best mark in 20 years since the program's only Final Four appearance.
