Rioters overturned cars, started fires and looted stores in Dinkytown after the Gophers won the NCAA hockey tournament in 2002 and 2003.

With the team possibly headed to the championship round on Saturday, campus and city police are putting together a "fairly significant police deployment plan," which includes plenty of officers as well as surveillance cameras.
