PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) - Chasson Randle broke out of a 3-point shooting slump and scored 21 points to lead Stanford to a 66-50 victory over Northern Iowa on Friday in the consolation semifinals of the Battle 4 Atlantis.
Randle, known as a good shooter, had a rough start to the season, making 3 of 22 from beyond the arc in the Cardinal's first five games. He finished 4 of 6 on Friday and made one with 8:12 left after Northern Iowa closed to 49-45. That started an 11-2 run that put the game away. Stanford was 8 for 19 from beyond the arc.
Stanford (4-2) will meet Minnesota in the fifth-place game Saturday. The Golden Gophers beat No. 19 Memphis 84-75.
Jake Koch had 12 points and Marc Sonnen added 12 for the Panthers (3-2), who lost 51-46 to No. 2 Louisville in the opening round.
