EVANSTON, Ill. — Gophers coach Richard Pitino ended up making the coaching move of the game Sunday by sitting leading scorer Andre Hollins with six seconds left in the first half of a 55-48 win at Northwestern.
Pitino noticed that Hollins was fatigued.
So in came point guard DeAndre Mathieu to sink a buzzer-beating three-pointer off a high ball screen to reduce the deficit to three points at halftime.
