PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) — Andre Hollins scored a career-high 41 points to lead Minnesota to an 84-75 victory over No. 19 Memphis on Friday in the consolation semifinals of the Battle 4 Atlantis.

The sophomore guard scored 24 points in the first half — one off his career high entering the game — and he closed strong, making 7 of 8 free throws and throwing in a monster dunk over the final 1:15 to account for all the Golden Gophers’ points in a 9-0 run to end the game.

Hollins finished 12 of 16 from the field — making all five of his 3-point attempts — and going 12 of 13 from the free throw line.

Minnesota (5-1) will meet the winner of the Northern Iowa-Stanford game for fifth place on Saturday.

D.J. Stephens had 15 points to lead the Tigers (2-2).
