1982-83 Basketball Results

Gopher Basketball 1982-83 Season

  • Head Coach: Jim Dutcher (8th season)
  • Overall Record: 18-11
  • Conference Record: 9-9
  • Notes: Wisconsin forfeited all of their games from 1981-1982 to 1983-1984. This fact did not affect the Gophers directly since we beat them all six times we met during those years.
