The Gophers finished sevenths in the Big Ten but after their upset win Thursday, and to be the "Cinderella" of the tournament, all the team needs to do is beat Michigan State on Saturday.

Big Ten champion Michigan State beat the Gophers by 24 points last month.

The Gophers are holding a closed practice to get ready to try pulling off another upset in the NCAA Tournament.

KSTP Sports Director Joe Schmit is in Des Moines, Iowa, and will give updates on 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS about how the players are feeling and what's next for the Gophers.
