Recap: Minnesota vs. Stanford

Paradise Island, Bahamas (Sports Network) - Andre Hollins knocked down three free throws with less than a second remaining to propel the Minnesota Golden Gophers to a win over the Stanford Cardinal, 66-63, to secure fifth-place in the Battle 4 Atlantis Tournament.

Hollins, who was coming off a career-night where he went for 41 points in a win over Memphis, scored just eight points but was fouled by Chasson Randle with less than a second remaining on a half-court shot attempt. Trevor Mbakwe led the way for Minnesota (6-1) with 19 points and 12 boards in 24 minutes off the bench. Rodney Williams scored 12 points and Joe Coleman added 11. No one on the Gophers had more than two assists.

Dwight Powell was the lone bright spot for the Cardinal (4-3). He dropped 22 points on 7-of-11 from the field and a perfect 7-of-7 from the free throw line. Randle added 13 but shot hit just 2-of-9 shots. Josh Huestis missed on all seven of his field goal attempts before fouling out.

Stanford led for most of the first half but an Mbakwe layup with 49 seconds remaining before halftime tied the score at 32-32. Both teams shot under 40 percent from the field in the opening half.

The Gophers took an early second half lead and went up by eight at the 12:53 minute mark. Powell then took over for Stanford, which regained the lead and held a slim advantage for the next couple of minutes. Down two with 14 seconds left, Powell drew a foul on Mbakwe and made both free throws, tying the score to set up Hollins' last second heroics.

Stanford is now on a three-game losing streak after opening the season with four consecutive wins.
