MINNEAPOLIS – Andre Hollins scored 21 points and Austin Hollins added 16 to lift Minnesota to a 71-61 victory over Florida State on Tuesday night.
The Golden Gophers (7-2) grabbed 13 offensive rebounds against the bigger Seminoles to help them bounce back from a disappointing showing at the Maui Invitational. The Gophers only turned the ball over six times and hit seven 3-pointers to overcome 34 percent shooting.
Okaro White had 16 points and eight rebounds and Ian Miller added 16 points and seven assists off the bench for the Seminoles (5-3). Florida State shot 46.5 percent, but turned the ball over 17 times and missed 10 free throws in a foul-filled game.
There were 67 foul shots taken and 52 fouls called.
No other Gophers scored in double figures, but they made 28 of 38 free throws, bouncing back after losing to Syracuse and Arkansas and struggling with Chaminade in Maui.
