Minnesota men’s basketball coach Tubby Smith credited Texas football coach Mack Brown with helping his team reach Sunday’s round of the NCAA Tournament because of some inspirational words offered by Brown during a practice session at the Erwin Center. “I’m grateful that he did that. I think it was a big help,” Smith said Saturday, reflecting on Brown’s visit to a Wednesday shootaround when he addressed the Gophers’ team. Minnesota (21-12) responded with Friday’s 83-63 victory over UCLA, setting up Sunday’s game against Florida (27-7) that will determine which team advances to next week’s South Regional semifinals at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.
