No. 14 Minnesota 88, South Dakota State 64
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Andre Hollins scored 20 of his 22 points before halftime, and No. 14 Minnesota breezed to an 88-64 victory on Tuesday over a South Dakota State team missing point guard Nate Wolters.
Hollins swished his first six 3-point attempts and finished 8 of 9 from the field for the Gophers (9-1), who reached their highest ranking in the Associated Press poll this week in six years under coach Tubby Smith.
Austin Hollins had 17 points, five assists and four steals, Joe Coleman added 15 points and seven rebounds and the Gophers did most of their damage on the perimeter and the fast break.
Jordan Dykstra scored 17 points for the Jackrabbits (6-3), who missed Wolters, their standout from nearby St. Cloud whose ankle injury prevented him from playing in his home state for the final time.
The Gophers started the game by making 11 of their first 17 field goals and began to make this look like a dunk contest in the first half, grabbing nearly every loose ball and turning them into easy fast breaks.
Freshman Jake Bittle, who replaced Wolters in the starting lineup, had five points, seven assists and seven turnovers.
Another key perimeter player for South Dakota State, sophomore Taevaunn Prince sat out with an injury.
Wisconsin 86, Omaha 40
MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin guard Ben Brust scored 15 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead Wisconsin over Omaha 86-40 on Tuesday night.

Justin Simmons led Nebraska-Omaha (2-8) with 12 points.
Trailing just 6-5 early in the first half, it was largely downhill from there for the Mavericks.
Wisconsin finished the half on a 36-7 run, punctuated by Traevon Jackson's steal and shot at the buzzer to put Wisconsin up 42-13.
The Mavericks shot 22 percent from the floor during the first half, including 0 of 5 from 3-point range, while committing 10 turnovers.
