With the Gophers victory over UCLA, Minnesota won it’s first NCAA Tournament game since 1990* and the first win under coach Tubby Smith.
Gophers past and present went on Twitter to congratulate Minnesota on their 83-63 victory Friday evening.
They’re keeping me up late putting Gophers on so late. But it was worth it. Looking forward to Sunday!Congrats to Coach Smith and guys.
