Gophers climb to No. 13 in AP rankings


The Gophers continue their climb in the AP basketball poll.

After two more wins -- against South Dakota State and USC -- Minnesota is now ranked 13th in the nation, up one spot from last week.

The 10-1 Gophers host North Dakota State tomorrow night at Williams Arena.

After that, Tubby Smith's team has just one more game -- on Dec. 22 -- before opening the Big 10 season against Michigan State on Dec. 31.
