PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP)

Chasson Randle had been having the same problem good shooters face: the ball wasn't going in.

All shooters follow the credo that the next one is going in and Randle did Friday.

Randle broke out of a 3-point shooting slump and scored 21 points to lead Stanford to a 66-50 victory over Northern Iowa 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.

''That's just me being me. It was in my own head,'' Randle said. ''My teammates and coaches kept telling me to keep shooting. It was all up to me to start making shots.''

Stanford (4-2) will meet Minnesota in the fifth-place game Saturday. The Golden Gophers beat No. 19 Memphis 84-75.

''I give my guys for playing as they did in a game like this,'' Stanford coach Johnny Dawkins said. ''In a tournament like this it can be easy to have things snowball on you.

''You can see we are starting to put the pieces together as we wait for Anthony Brown and Aaron Bright to return from injuries.''

At the other end of the spectrum for the Cardinal, Dwight Powell, who had 18 points and 10 rebounds in the 78-70 opening-round loss to No. 13 Missouri, had two points on 0-for-3 shooting and two rebounds against Northern Iowa.

''He was battling foul trouble right away and it's hard to get any consistency when that happens to you,'' Dawkins said. ''But Dwight found a way to help us by bringing energy when he was on the bench.''

Andy Brown picked up the scoring load, though, finishing with a career-high 15 points on 7-for-12 shooting.

Dawkins was asked what Randle having long-range success means for his team.

''It puts a smile on my face,'' he said.

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.

The Louisville game didn't end until after midnight and the Panthers were back for a 3:30 p.m. start.

''We didn't talk about that at all,'' Northern Iowa coach Ben Jacobson said. ''What we did talk about was that we had another opportunity to play against a good team.

''Now we have to play another good team,'' he said referring to No.19 Memphis, the Panthers' opponent in the seventh-place game Saturday. ''We have a chance to take advantage of another opportunity.''

The Panthers stayed even on the boards at 31-31 with the Cardinal but they committed 16 turnovers that Stanford converted into 26 points. Stanford had 10 turnovers, only two in the second half when it pulled away from a 30-30 tie.

''We got off to a slow start and then worked so hard just to get into a tie at halftime,'' Jacobson said. ''We still had some chances but made some mistakes that hurt us.''
