Rocky transition for Gophers basketball transfers continues — and spills onto Twitter

Late Monday night, Gophers senior guard Akeem Springs decided to take his frustrations out on Twitter by posting a message about his time in Minnesota possibly being cut short.

Immediately, Minnesota basketball fans wondered if this meant the 6-foot-4, 220-pound Milwaukee-Wisconsin graduate transfer was leaving the program.

“Looks like my time in Minnesota may be shorter than (I) thought,” Springs wrote before later deleting. “It’s all good though.”

Gophers coach Richard Pitino said Tuesday at the team’s media day that he had a great talk with Springs and was told the tweet was about “nothing.”

“I don’t think it was anything at all,” Pitino said. “He’s been an awesome teammate and a great leader.”

In his first blog of the season last month, Pitino wrote that he expected Springs and Illinois State transfer Reggie Lynch to “both make an immediate impact” and “play major minutes.”

That implied that Springs and Lynch would be in the starting lineup in the season opener Nov. 11 against Louisiana-Lafayette. But Pitino didn’t mention Springs on Sunday when projecting his starters, saying the 22-year-old Illinois native was still going through an adjustment period after missing summer practice.

Going into fall practices, Pitino had high expectations for three transfers in Lynch, Springs and former Texas A&M forward Davonte Fitzgerald. But things haven’t worked out as planned so far.

Fitzgerald suffered a season-ending ACL injury three weeks ago. Lynch, the starting center when healthy, has been sidelined since having meniscus surgery last month, which has his status for the opener uncertain. And Springs appeared to be taking a bit longer than he thought to establish himself with the Gophers.

Lynch was able to do some full contact in practice for 15 minutes on Monday, Pitino said. But the Gophers still might keep him out of the Nov. 3 exhibition opener against Bemidji State.
