08:12 AM ET 11.05 | Credit Trevor Mbakwe for the faith he has in his teammates -- or his own healing powers. [The Minnesota] forward apparently is certain he can get back to his All-Big Ten form after a year lost to a knee injury. Why else would he make a bold statement on Twitter on Sunday, Nov. 4, that he would "pay back" his scholarship for this year if the University of Minnesota basketball team didn't advance to the NCAA tournament? Mbakwe wrote on his Twitter account (@TMbakwe32): "I love my teammates. They have always been there for me. If we don't make the tourney ill pay back this years scholarship." Just to make sure everyone knew he was serious, the 6-foot-8 St. Paul native followed that up with more tweets: "That's how much I believe in this years team,"
