The Gophers are celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the 1994-95 season that produced the program's first-ever NCAA Division III Tournament win.

Johns Hopkins jumped out to a 44-22 lead at halftime and then posted a 35-21 second half for a 79-43 win.

Goucher returns to action at the Dick Leftwich Tip-off Tournament hosted by Roanoke College starting on Friday. The Gophers will open up the two-day tournament against the host Maroons and head coach Clay Nunley, who was a freshman on the 1994-95 team that defeated Lebanon Valley in the 1995 NCAA Tournament. Nunley played 17 games during that season.
