The Minnesota Golden Gophers come into the 2012-2013 season on the cusp of having a national ranking in the polls. Last season the Gophers finished 23-15 and ended up being the runner-up in the National Invitational Tournament, losing out to Stanford in the final. Competing in a tough Big Ten Conference, the Tubby Smith led Golden Gophers look to return to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2010.
