Flip Saunders in Minneapolis Celebrity Sightings


Last night at Williams Arena was the University of Minnesota Dance Team’s Best of the Best Show. A dance competition in which the UMDT and other Gopher spirit squads show off and test their UCA/UDA Nationals routines. In attendance was none other than former Minnesota Timberwolves – and most recently Washington Wizards – head coach Flip Saunders. Flip was there in support of his twin daughters who are on the dance team. We got the exclusive picture above, a nostalgic¬†one of the former Gopher which we can only hope is a foreshadow to the future of Gopher hoops. Yeah, Tubby is doing well with the squad this year – besides the respectable loss at Indiana last night – but he isn’t going to be around forever, hopefully, and we would be rather stoked to see Flipper take over the reigns!


Side note, Flip was on his usual KFAN spot Friday with Dan Barriero beforehand and called UMDT coach Amber Jackson, “One of the top college coaches – man or woman – in the country.” Quite an endorsement, and one many sports fans may take exception to. Although it is tough to argue with her championships on championships on championships resume … Nonetheless, have a listen, and we gotta ask —
