Let’s re-visit this picture after the season to see how much Ben Johnson ages.

Minnesota opened the Ben Johnson game against D-II Concordia-St. Paul at Williams Arena, and a game of basketball was indeed played. A crowd of hundreds did a wonderful job of social-distancing throughout Historic Williams Arena and watched basketball. Referees observed the game and called fouls and determined possession on balls that went out of bounds. Concessions were served, although a couple stands were not open. The ice cream stand was open and quite popular, despite the weather outside being in the 30s and windy.

Minnesota beat Concordia-St. Paul 80-67.
