College Basketball Schedule, TV Times And More: Golden Gophers Tip Off Season

For more on the Golden Gophers, visit SB Nation's The Daily Gopher

For college basketball fans tonight is the night you have been waiting for since the end of last season. the 2011-12 season gets fully underway with over 100 games around the country.

The Minnesota Golden Gophers, led by All-America candidate Trevor Mbakwe, start their season tonight at 7pm against the Bucknell Bison. TV coverage will be covered by Gopher Sports All Access online, while the Daily Gopher offers a preview:

On the Gopher's second offensive possession Mbakwe caught the ball at the top of the key, just inside the three-point line, and calmly nailed the open jump shot.  I hope the rest of the Big Ten got that on tape because if he is able to knock down some open jumpers he becomes much more difficult to defend.

Minnesota has a second game Monday night at home against South Dakota State. That game will also be carried online through Gopher Sport All Access.
