Continued: Up-tempo? Gophers' Mathieu knows no other way on the court

“I think that’s the whole philosophy,” Hollins said. “Getting teams out of their comfort zones, playing unconventionally.”

Trying on a new style

Count Austin Hollins as another player who appears to slide seamlessly into Pitino’s system. The guard finished with 21 points to lead the Maroon team, while adding three rebounds, three assists and a steal in 24 minutes.

“I feel like he’s more comfortable, confident,” Andre Hollins said. “You can see … he was rolling tonight. Defensively, he’s always been good, and I think the way we play defense gets him going offensively a little bit better.”

Osenieks also had a strong shooting night, going 7-for-11 from the field, 1-for-2 from three-point range and finishing with 16 points and seven rebounds. Osenieks struggled mightily with his shooting a season ago.

“He’s another guy that has really responded to the challenge,” Pitino said. “He was fighting for every single rebound.”
