Defense, new head coach Richard Pitino's coaching style, and a new, up-tempo style of offense were among the headlines at Gophers men's basketball media day on Monday.

Coaches and players addressed members of the media and took a team photo at Williams Arena. Pitino talked about his coaching philosophies and expectations for the upcoming season, while many of the players said they are ready for the season to get underway.

The Gophers will play an exhibition game on Friday against Cardinal-Stritch University, a school from Milwaukee, at 7:00 p.m.
