Gophers Basketball Player Wally Ellenson a Track Star, Too
Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Wally Ellenson got a glimpse of the University of Texas track when the Gophers basketball team took a tour of the facility while in Austin, Texas for the NCAA tournament in March. "I saw the track," Ellenson said, "but at the time I didn't know I'd be jumping there at this time of the year." The NCAA Division I track and field's West Regional meet is Thursday through Saturday in Austin. Ellenson, who averaged two points while playing in nine games as a reserve swingman on the basketball team last season, will attempt to qualify for the NCAA championships next month in Oregon.
