Virgin Islands National teams
This summer the Virgin Islands senior men's and women's basketball teams have an opportunity to right the wrongs of the past by winning a medal at the 2019 Pan American Games. The men have participated in the All-Americas tournament just five times with each team failing to crack the top seven, while this is the women's first foray.
The men, August 6-10, gained a spot in the tournament after finishing in fourth place at the Final Phase of the FIBA Americup in 2017. The Pan Am Games features multiple sports and teams from North, South and Central America, as well as the Caribbean and is held every four years (2019, 2023, etc.) in the year preceding the Olympics.
The senior women begin to gear up for the Pan American Games. Including host Peru, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Paraguay, Puerto Rico and the USA and the Virgin Islands are competing in the five-on-five basketball tournament. The senior women competition will be taking place July 31-Aug. 4.

Jordan Murphy (201-F-97) and Minnesota rallied for a 77-72 overtime victory over Penn State in the second round of the Big Ten Tournament on Thursday night.

The Gophers already were a safe bet to make the NCAA Tournament. With the win, they might have avoided a trip to Dayton for a play-in game. The Gophers (20-12) split two games with Purdue (14-17), losing on the road on Feb. 3 and winning at home last week. Game time 7pm on the Big Ten Network.

The Bruins countered with a 17-3 run to get within nine points with under nine minutes left, but the Sun Devils responded with eight of the game's next 11 points to push their lead back to 14, 70-56.The Sun Devils (22-9), the No. 2 seed in the tournament, will face Oregon (21-12), the No. 6 seed, in the second of Friday's two semifinal matchups (8:30 p.m. PT).
