The Gophers top scorer will return to the floor on Wednesday night at Purdue as Andre Hollins is slated to play -- and start -- for the first time since spraining his left ankle in the team's win over then-No. 9 Wisconsin on Jan. 22.

Hollins, who leads the Gophers with 15.5 points and 2.8 assists per game, appeared in severe pain after landing awkwardly on his ankle just 12 seconds into the Gophers' upset victory. While Minnesota rallied to top the Badgers without their junior guard, the Gophers lost the next two games at Nebraska and at The Barn against Northwestern.


Gophers radio analyst Spencer Tollackson tweeted that Hollins will return to the starting lineup. Tipoff is set for 7:30 p.m. CT from Mackey Arena. Listen live on 1500AM or stream on 1500ESPN.com.
