MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Rodney Williams had 12 points, eight rebounds and four steals, Austin Hollins scored 10 of his 13 points in the game's first five minutes and Minnesota blew by Toledo 82-56 on Monday night.
Joe Coleman finished with 15 points and six rebounds despite eight turnovers, and Oto Osenieks pitched in eight points off the bench for the Gophers (2-0), who played so sharply and confidently in the first half their occasional sloppiness down the stretch didn't matter.
Rian Pearson led the Rockets (0-2) with 18 points, and freshman center Nathan Boothe added 13 points and seven rebounds.
Toledo went just 3 for 19 from 3-point range against an active, hustling Gophers defense. The Rockets were second in the Mid-American Conference in 3-point shooting last season and made nearly 44 percent from behind the arc over the last 12 games.
