Gophers to play Asian team
Monday, Nov. 16, Minnesota’s men’s basketball team will play its first ever game against a team from Asia when the Philippine National Team comes to Williams Arena for an exhibition game.
The game will be very important for the team as they prepare for the Asian Games in Bangkok, Thailand in December. The game versus the Gophers concludes their 10-game tour of the U.S. where they will receive stiff competition from teams such as Iowa, Missouri, and Arkansas.
Robert Mariano, a Twin Cities native of Philippine decent, will sing the Philippine national anthem before tip-off. Also, the Philippine Cultural Society will put on a special halftime show featuring native music and dance.
The Philippines are currently in the middle of their centennial celebration and a reception will be put on by local Philippine supporters in the Clubroom at Williams Arena on Sunday, Nov. 15 at 7 p.m.
Molly has options
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Talks with Paul Molitor about returning to the Milwaukee Brewers have included an offer of a coaching position, the team’s manager says.
“He could be a bench coach if he wanted or the third-base coach,” Phil Garner said in an interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel published in Thursday’s editions.
Molitor, 42, has been with the Minnesota Twins three years. He left the Brewers after the 1992 season to sign as a free agent with Toronto following 15 years with Milwaukee.
