Recap


Minnesota 84, No. 17 Memphis 75: Andre Hollins scored a career-high 41 points and the Golden Gophers survived a second-half rally to defeat the Tigers in a consolation game at the Battle 4 Atlantis in the Bahamas.

Hollins shot 12-of-16 from the field - including 5-of-5 from the 3-point line - and went 12-of-13 from the foul line as Minnesota (5-1) ended a seven-game losing streak against ranked opponents. Rodney Williams Jr. was the only other Gopher to join Hollins in double figures with 13 points.

After establishing a 63-55 margin on a 3-pointer from Hollins just past the eight-minute mark of the second half, Minnesota watched Memphis (2-2) score 13 of the next 17 points to take its only lead of the half on a 3-pointer from D.J. Stephens with 6:13 left.

Williams hit a jumper on the next possession to spark a 6-0 run and Hollins outscored the Tigers 9-2 over the final 1:15 with seven free throws and a dunk as Minnesota stretched the lead to 12 points in the final seconds.

Stephens finished with 15 points and seven rebounds to lead Memphis, which has lost consecutive games for the first time since Dec. 11-17, 2011.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Hollins finished one point shy of the school record shared by Eric Magdanz (1962) and Oliver Shannon (1971). … Hollins, who had 24 first-half points, was one point short of his career high at halftime. … The 84 points scored by Minnesota were its most since an 86-85 victory over DePaul early last season.
