Minnesota Vs. Mount St. Mary's: Golden Gophers Cruise To Another Win

The Minnesota Golden Gophers stayed undefeated with an 85-56 win against the overwhelmed Mount St. Mary's Mountaineers on Monday night.

Five players hit double figures for the Golden Gophers, who only really needed half of the game to prove their superiority, taking a 51-18 lead into the halftime break. Even while Minnesota stepped off the gas a bit in the second half, the 29-point win secured a fourth straight double-digit victory to improve the team to 4-0 on the season.

Rodney Williams made 5-5 shots from the field and scored 12 points on a night when Minnesota shot 50.0 % from the field overall. Both Hollins' also excelled for Minnesota -- Austin Hollins led all scorers with 14 points and Andre Hollins added 13 for the balanced Golden Gophers at Williams Arena.

The road is about to get a bit more difficult for Tubby Smith's crew, as they travel to take on DePaul in Old Spice Classic tournament on Thanksgiving Day. The Blue Demons are 2-0 this season.
