MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Richard Pitino has won his debut as the coach of the Minnesota Gophers.

They beat Lehigh 81-62 in the season opener. Newcomer Joey King scored 20 points and Andre Hollins added 18. Elliot Eliason added 11 points and a career-high 17 rebounds.

However, the news wasn't all good for the Gophers as prized recruit Reid Travis announced he'd play for Stanford instead of Minnesota.
