The Minnesota Gophers place last in the 2016 North Star College Cup in front of a small crowd at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota. The Minnesota State University Mavericks defeat the Gophers 3-2 and leave Minnesota fans speechless.
For the twelfth time in the last thirteen meetings against Minnesota opponents the Minnesota Gophers lose. Minnesota Gopher head coach Don Lucia was disappointed with the play of the Gophers but mentioned that last year the team “lost a couple games” at the North Star Cup but were able to finish the season strong.
The Gophers have finished off the non-conference schedule and will play the final ten games of their regular season against Big Ten opponents starting with Penn State on February 5, 2016.
