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 in Paradise Island, Bahamas.
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 when Minnesota went to throw in 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 in front of the Stanford bench 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.
Stanford coach Johnny Dawkins looked stunned even 20 minutes after the game.
"It's difficult for any young man to be involved in a play like that," he said of Randle. "I think at some point in time, at some level, for all these athletes who play so much basketball, they're all involved in a play like that. It's one of the most difficult plays to live with. He has to understand it's never decided on the last play. That's just fiction. That play didn't decide the game for us."
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.
Trevor Mbakwe had 19 points and 12 rebounds for Minnesota (6-1). Powell had 22 points for Stanford (4-3), including 10 straight late in the second half. Powell's two free throws tied it at 63 with 14.8 seconds left.
