NOW: Amanda Zahui B. has passed her SAT and plans to play for the Gophers. She would become eligible at the start of the winter semester around January 1.
She is a world-class ballplayer who scored 17 ppg for Sweden in the 18 year old World Tournament.
THEN: Amanda Zahui B. has not been cleared by the NCAA to play college basketball in the U.S. and therefore will not be able to play for the Minnesota Gophers. Whether there is a longer term future for the Zahui-Gopher relationship is unknown. This is a big blow to the Gophers' hopes for 2012-2013 as Zahui, a 6-5 Swede, was widely viewed as a huge upgrade to the Gophers' inside game.
