52-point second half keys true road win for Gophers

For the first 20 minutes of Minnesota’s portion of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge it looked like the same under-achieving team that had somehow become the new normal was once again taking the floor. With faulty ballhandling and an inability to maintain momentum, the Gophers looked just as lost in the half-court offense as they had in both games out in New York City. But behind a raucous...

Healthy again, Andre Hollins should bounce back.

The Golden Gophers will go as far as Andre Hollins can carry them this season, and Hollins will go as far as his ankles let him. The combo-guard has a good chance to become the Gophers' all-time leading scorer, despite being healthy for only one complete season, his sophomore year. That season he scored 41 points in a game, was named third team All-Big Ten, and helped his team make...

Andre Hollins is back to his old self, and it is just in time.

Two-thirds of the Big Ten season has gone by, and the Minnesota Golden Gophers are still the worst defensive team in the Big Ten. It is too late in the season to hope that they'll become a good defensive team, probably too late to hope they'll become average, and will soon be too late to think they can get out of the defensive cellar. The Gophers are not going to win any games because...

Andre Hollins, Gophers eager to face Badgers again

MINNEAPOLIS -- Gophers guard Andre Hollins can't wait for Thursday's game against Wisconsin for two reasons. For starters, it was during Minnesota's game against the Badgers last month in which Hollins suffered a sprained ankle that forced him to miss his team's next two games -- both losses.

Gophers follow lead of Austin Hollins

MINNEAPOLIS -- As Austin Hollins goes, so go the Minnesota Golden Gophers. Hollins has become a senior leader on Minnesota both on and off the court -- albeit a quieter, lead-by-example type. He's also become a go-to scoring option and is second on the team in points per game. When Hollins has an off night, the Gophers seem to follow suit, and vice versa. Such was the case last week...
