The Minnesota Gopher Basketball lose to Dayton 86-70 in the Old Spice Classic Championship was not the problem for them. The problem was losing senior all conference power forward Trevor Mbakwe. Mbakwe who was leading the Minnesota program basically in every category, but more importantly leading with his leadership. Trevor Mbakwe has been plagued before by an injury first when he started at Marquette University that sidelined for basically a whole season. He was a projected draft pick in next year’s NBA draft, but now will spend the next year rehabbing and preparing for everything and anything. Minnesota will need the duo of Ralph Sampson and Rodney Williams. I wish the best for Trevor Mbakwe and his family.
