Tanisha Gilbert played two seasons for the Gophers, making 13 starts in her 43 career games. She averaged 14.7 points per game her freshman season in 2000-01, a season cut short when she was declared academically ineligible for the second semester. Gilbert underwent knee surgery, forcing her to miss the 2001-02 season. She returned to action last season and played in 29 games as a key reserve.
Gilbert was the Gophers' sixth-leading scorer last season. The Gophers finished 25-6 last season, losing to Texas in the NCAA Tournament after defeating Tulane and Stanford.
Gilbert was a standout at Champlin Park High School, where she was a Nike High School and Street & Smith All-American. She was a finalist for the Ms. Minnesota Basketball award in 2000 and earned all-state honors as a junior and senior. Gilbert was a three-time All-North Suburban Conference honoree and led the Rebels to their first state tournament appearance in 1999.
