1995-96 Basketball Results

Gopher Basketball 1995-96 Season

  • Head Coach: Clem Haskins (10th season)
  • Overall Record: 20-12
  • Conference Record: 10-8
  • The Big Island Invitational took place in Hilo, Hawaii.
  • Notes: Notes: According to the NCAA, our official record for all years from the 1993-1994 season through the 1998-1999 season is 0-0 due to a widespread academic scandal. This also wipes out all post-season appearances during those years, including our 1997 Final Four appearance and our 1998 NIT title. We have left the game scores and Big Ten standings as they were at the time, but officially speaking, it's as though we didn't even have a team those years.
