Min­nesota: Min­nesota has a first team all-con­fer­ence player com­ing back with Ken­isha Bell, along with Big Ten Fresh­man of the Year award win­ner Destiny Pitts and four of the top five scor­ers from a team that fin­ished 24-9 last sea­son and won an NCAA Tour­na­ment game.

When the Go­phers start their sched­ule Fri­day night in front of a packed house, though, the fans will be most ex­cited to see the head coach.

Lind­say Whalen will take the court with her new team in the opener against New Hamp­shire, one of the most-an­tic­i­pated de­buts in women’s col­lege bas­ket­ball this year.
