As the Gophers get ready to face Illinois in the opening round of the Big Ten Tournament on Thursday, head coach Tubby Smith says his team needs to do some mental healing.

“We’re OK physically,” he said during a Monday conference call. “Mentally is where we’re hurting, where we’ve got to do a lot of work, a lot of healing.”

Smith believes the Gophers might be better suited for tournament-style basketball because there's "not a whole lot of thinking."
