Austin Hollins' layup late in the second half of Tuesday's game was extra special, as it put his career total over 1,000.

Hollins finished with 20 points and a career-best 14 rebounds as the Golden Gophers beat South Dakota State University 75-59 at Williams Arena.

Hollins received a standing ovation from an appreciative Barnyard crowd after reaching the milestone. In the locker room after the game, he was his usual calm and composed self and spoke humbly about his memorable night and the appreciation he has for the fans.

The other Hollins for the Gophers - Andre Hollins - is just six points away from 1,000 career points. He will likely reach that milestone in the team's next game against Nebraska-Omaha on Dec. 20.
