Just an FYI: Monday will be my last day with the Star Tribune. I'm thankful for the opportunity that the Star Tribune has given me over the last four years.
I've had so much fun. The blogs, the stories, the games, the trips, the people, the live chats (The Barbershop) and more. I've had a great experience.
Please treat my successor well. Her name is Amelia Rayno. She'll do a great job.
This is Amelia Rayno's third season on the Gophers men's basketball beat. She learned college basketball in North Carolina (Go Tar Heels!), where fanhood is not an option. In 2010, she joined the Star Tribune after graduating from Boston's Emerson College, which sadly had no exciting D-I college hoops to latch onto. Amelia has also worked on the sports desk at the Boston Globe and interned at the Detroit News.
