Dec. 21, 2012

Minnesota sophomore guard Andre Hollins has been named to the Bob Cousy Award watch list, the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame announced recently. The award is given annually to the nation’s top men’s basketball point guard.

Hollins is one of 80 players across the country to be named to the watch list, which will be narrowed down to a final 20 in early January.

A native of Memphis, Tenn., Hollins is leading the Gophers in scoring (13.5 ppg) and assists (3.6 apg) and is third on the team in minutes played at 28.0 mpg. He was named the Big Ten Player of the Week on Nov. 26 following Minnesota 2-1 showing in the Battle 4 Atlantis. 

After a defeat to then No. 4 Duke, Hollins paced Minnesota with a career-high 41 points in the win over then No. 19 Memphis, becoming just the fourth player in Gopher history to surpass the 40-point plateau and the first since Oliver Shannon scored 42 against Wisconsin during the 1971 conference season. To date, his 41-point outburst is the most this season in Division I.

Following an 11-day break, the Gophers are back in action at Williams Arena against Lafayette on Saturday, Dec. 22. The game is scheduled to tip at 6:00 p.m. CT.

Tickets are available for all remaining Minnesota home games by calling 612.624.8080 or 1.800.UGOPHER or online at www.gophersports.com or www.mygophersports.com.
