MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 3 (UPI) -- Austin Hollins hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 11.6 seconds remaining Sunday and No. 24 Minnesota hung on for a 62-59 victory over Iowa.

Trailing by four points in the final minutes, Minnesota's Joe Coleman made a layup with 1:47 left, shaving the Golden Gophers' deficit to two.
