PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) - Andre Hollins, a day after scoring 41 points, made three free throws with 0.4 seconds to play to give Minnesota a 66-63 victory over Stanford on Saturday in the fifth-place game of the Battle 4 Atlantis.

Hollins' 41-point effort came against No. 19 Memphis. He only had eight points against Stanford but the last three were the winners.

The game was tied at 63 and Minnesota was inbounding the ball from under its own basket. After an inbounds pass, the ball was tipped away by Stanford's Dwight Powell, who saved it as he was falling out of bounds near midcourt. Hollins calmly corralled the loose ball and dribbled to midcourt where he launched a shot and was hit on the right arm by Stanford's Chasson Randle.

As Randle crouched in front of his bench holding his head as teammates patted him, the officials went to the monitor to see if the foul happened after time expired. They put 0.4 seconds back on the clock and Hollins made all three free throws.

A long pass by Stanford was knocked away by Minnesota and the buzzer sounded.

Hollins, who came within one point of the school record Friday, struggled Saturday, making one of eight from the field but he was 6 of 7 from the free throw line.

Trevor Mbakwe had 19 points and 12 rebounds for the Golden Gophers (6-1), who lost to No. 5 Duke in the opening round. Rodney Williams added 12 points for Minnesota, which went 26 of 35 from the line.

Powell had 22 points for Stanford (4-3), which lost to No. 13 Missouri in the first round, including a stretch late in the second half when he scored 10 straight. Powell tied it at 63 with two free throws with 14.8 seconds left after he was fouled as he drove to the basket.

Powell scored 18 of the Cardinal's final 23 point in the game.

Randle, who has been struggling with his shooting this season, finished 3 of 19 from the field including 2 of 9 from 3-point range.
