The Gophers defeated UCLA in the Midwest Regional final in March of 1997, 80-72. But that game was wiped off the books due to academic fraud violations. The Gophers' last victory in the tournament that wasn't scrubbed from the records came in 1990 when they defeated Syracuse to advance to the Sweet 16.
