Vlookup to return max value from multiple hits in Excel

Hi, can anyone help me with the below...
Im looking for a vlookup formula which will give me the maximum number from a list which contains multiple matches, i.e.
Lookup number 1 from column A, then give me the largest number from column B

example table:
1 5
2 2
1 11
3 2
4 5

the result would be 11

thanks all!
