Gophers likely to put freshman Andre Hollins in starting lineup


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Freshman Andre Hollins will likely move into the starting lineup for Minnesota.

Hollins practiced with the first team Monday, and coach Tubby Smith said he'd probably start him at shooting guard tonight against sixth-ranked Ohio State. Hollins will likely replace Joe Coleman.

Hollins started the first 10 games for the Gophers (17-8, 5-7 Big Ten), but he sprained his right ankle and struggled with his strength, explosiveness and confidence after that.
