  • Hardwood History

      Led by All Big Ten senior forward Willie Burton, Minnesota started the season 10-1 including a win over #4 Illinois.  The Golden Gophers finished the season 20-8 earning them the #6 seed in the Southeast Region of the NCAA Tournament. 

      Back to back 3 point wins over UTEP and Northern Iowa put Minnesota in the Sweet 16 setting up a showdown with #2 Syracuse.  The Orange's star power of Billy Owens and Derrick Coleman couldn't overcome a balanced offensive performance that saw 5 Gophers score in double figures.  The result was a 82-75 win and a berth in the Elite 8. 

      A loss in the Elite 8 to #4 Georgia Tech ended Minnesota's run one game shy of the Final Four.  Even in defeat the memories of that 1990 team live on.

      "That's what it's about- a team.  Yes, Willie Burton did a few things and was a little different, but at the end of the day we all won together."

      -Willie Burton
