MINNEAPOLIS -- Lawrence Westbrook scored 15 points and Ralph Sampson III added eight points, four rebounds and one timely assist to lift Minnesota to a 60-52 victory over Georgia State on Sunday night in the NABC Classic.

Al Nolen added six points, six assists, four rebounds and five steals for the Gophers (3-0), who won all three games in the round-robin tournament this weekend.

Joe Dukes had 16 points and five assists for Georgia State (1-2).

Both teams were playing their third game in three nights, and it looked like it in a lethargic and sloppy second half.

The Panthers were down by five with 3:30 to play, but Sampson fed Blake Hoffarber for a wide open layup. He then put back his own miss to give the Gophers some breathing room.

Minnesota turned 20 Georgia State turnovers into 21 points. The Gophers also beat Bowling Green and Concordia-St. Paul.
