The Gophers went 21-11 in the 1979-80 season. They were disappointed in not being invited to play in the NCAA post-season tourney, but accepted a bid to the NIT where they won four games before losing to Ralph Sampson's Virginia team in the finals. Hibbing-native McHale, in his final season, averaged 17.4 points per game while Lake City freshman Breuer averaged 7.7.

A veteran of seven NBA seasons, the 7-3 Breuer came to the Minnesota Timberwolves in a trade with Milwaukee 30 games into the T'Wolves' first season, averaging 10 points per game. A four-year collegiate star for the Minnesota Gophers, Breuer became known to Minnesota basketball fans at an early age, leading his Lake City High School team to two state titles.
