MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Rodney Williams got Minnesota off to a flying start with five dunks in the first half and Austin Hollins added 14 points and six assists in an 85-56 victory over Mount St. Mary's on Monday night.
Williams scored all 12 of his points in the first half and Andre Hollins had 13 points for the Golden Gophers (4-0), who played without starting center Ralph Sampson III because of an ankle injury.
Danny Thompson had 14 points and seven rebounds and Kelvin Parker added 13 points for the Mountaineers (1-3), who trailed by 33 points at halftime.
Minnesota shot 50 percent and committed just nine turnovers. It turned into a rout early when the Gophers opened the game on a 25-4 run.
