The Gopher men's basketball team will play an exhibition game tonight at Williams Arena in Minneapolis against Bemidji State at 7pm.  Minnesota welcomes lots of new players this season including freshman guards Joe Coleman and Andre Hollins.  The Gophers also added junior college transfers Julian Welch and Andre Ingram.  Welch is a point guard and Ingram is a power forward.  The top returners for the Gophers are seniors Trevor Mbakwe and Ralph Sampson III.

The Gophers last season lost 10 of their last 11 games.
