– The Three point shot was a huge difference maker for the Minutemen, outscoring the explorers 30-3 from beyond the arc.
– C.J. Anderson’s play in the past few weeks has been outstanding. His added scoring and leadership abilities simply will this team to victory.

Opponent: George Mason Patriots
League: Atlantic 10 Conference

Summary:

1st Half:

– Luwane Pipkins was ruled out of this one with a concussion.

Game Summaries: Virginia Commonwealth (2/21)

Opponent: VCU Rams
League: Atlantic 10 Conference

Summary:

UMass was still without freshman center Khalea Turner-Morris in this one as Coach McCall is hopeful he will return this Saturday vs George Mason.

The Minutemen fell into foul trouble early as they were charged for their third team foul in just under three minutes of action. Additionally, two of the fouls were given to UMass’ only true big man Malik Hines. However, the guards responded and a Pipkins three pointer pushed UMass out to their largest lead of the game (10-4) shortly after.

Still, the Rams responded, storming back with a 12-2 run to take a 26-21 lead. The spree started at the 11:36 mark, and was capped off by a De’Riante Jenkins (17 Points, 7-16 FG) layup four minutes later, prompting Coach McCall to call a timeout to steady the slide. 

The Minutemen stayed resilient and fought back in the remaining time before half, scoring 17 Points (5-9 3PFG) and entering the locker room down just one point (39-38).

The second half began with a three point shootout as both teams combined to attempt nine attempts from downtown before C.J. Anderson (15 Points, 6 Assists) connected on a jump shot with 17:19 left in the game.

As time progressed, the stars took over and court became a battlefield between VCU senior forward Justin Tillman (26 Points, 13 Rebounds) and UMass’s sophomore sensation Luwane (38 Points, 8-13 3PFG). Tillman was relentless getting inside the paint as he put up 17 second half points, weaving through the undersized UMass squad. Pipkins answered the call and matched him shot for shot, lighting up Mullins Center for a ridiculous 24 points in the 2nd half (6-8 FG, 4-5 3PFG, and 8-10 FT)

With just over six minutes remaining in the contest a highly questionable Tillman block on a Anderson layup attempt led to a transition layup on the other end by Jonathan Williams (11 Points, 6 Assists). Upon replay, the shot was clearly goal-tended by Tillman. The no call resulted in a four point swing and catalyzed an 8-1 run for VCU, increasing their lead to 75-66 and putting the game nearly out of reach. 

Several VCU turnovers helped UMass get some easy transition layups and free throws, cutting the deficit to 3 points after a Pipkins layup with forty-six seconds left. Unfortunately, the Minutemen couldn’t get the stop they needed as Justin Tillman put the final dagger in his terrific performance with an uncontested layup. An ensuing Pipkins turnover lead to an empathic exclamation point dunk as the VCU bench erupted in celebration. UMass would fall to VCU with the final score of 82-78.

Analysis:

Pipkins assisted or scored on 67% of UMass’ total points (52 of 78 Points), another brilliant performance from the likely most improved player in the conference. The Minutemen hung in the game until the waning seconds but ultimately couldn’t get the stop they needed as Justin Tillman torched the Minutemen for 26 points. Freshman Carl Pierre struggled with his shot, only scoring 10 points (4-14 FG, 2-9 3PFG). Another rare off night, as Pierre came into the contest shooting an insane 47.1% from three, good for twenty-seventh best in the country.

Malik Hines was in foul trouble early once again as recent UMass walk-on, Football QB Randall West played a career high 18 minutes. He recorded his first career field goal on a layup while also setting a career high in rebounds (6).

The Minutemen were consistent from the free throw line (84.6%, 11-13 FT) and shot well from three (40.6%, 13-32 3PFG). They have now made ten or more three pointers in twelve games this season, shooting 39.2% from downtown on the season, good for twenty-eighth in the country.

The squad return to action on Saturday, February 24th, at 7:00 PM as they travel to face the George Mason Patriots.

Game Summaries: George Washington

Opponent: George Washington Colonials
League: Atlantic 10 Conference

Summary:

The Minutemen have struggled with a lack of depth all season, but now face a huge challenge as Chris Baldwin was ruled out for the remainder of the season and Khalea Turner Morris enters concussion protocol. The injuries leave UMass with only five scholarship players and just one player on the roster taller than 6’6.

Both teams started off slow but C.J. Anderson got the Minutemen on the board with a driving and one layup two minutes into the game. Unfortunately, this would be the only lead UMass would hold. Moving on, Ray Miller equalized the contest on a layup with fourteen minutes remaining in the half and it appeared as if we were in for a grind it out classic A-10 matchup. Soon thereafter, GW began to make that foregone conclusion look unlikely as Patrick Steeves and Yuta Watanabe led the team on a 19-3 eruption to stretch the lead to 27-13. Pipkins (20 Points, 5-10 3PFG) and C.J. Anderson were the lone bright spots for UMass in the first period and did their best to rally their team back from the hole they dug themselves into. To make matters worse, Bo Zeigler tipped in a Watanabe miss with just two seconds left in the half to send the deflated Minutemen into the locker room with their largest deficit of the first Steeves paced the Colonials with ten points while Anderson added nine for UMass. In all, GW received baskets from eight different players in the half while only four players scored for the Minutemen.

Carl Pierre finally got on the score sheet with a three pointer two minutes into the second half. The sharp shooter, who leads all freshman across the country in three point percentage, had one of his worst performances of the season (1-5 3P FG%). Due to their lack of depth, the Minutemen added the back up quarterback of the football team, Randall West, to the roster earlier this week and he provided some valuable energy. Overall, it was more of the same for GW in the second, dominating the contest and seeing their lead ballooned as high as twenty-three points (61-38). The Minutemen fought back late with an eighteen to eight run but it was too little, too late and the game concluded with a final score of of 83-72.

Analysis:

C.J. Anderson was very solid on the glass, but defensive rebounding was horrible as the Minutemen gave up seventeen offensive boards. Overall, the team was out-rebounded forty three to twenty eight. Additionally, the Minutemen struggled from the floor once again, but were very successful from three point land. The Colonials on the other hand were bad as predicted from deep, but it did not matter as they were extremely efficient within the line. Overall, their offensive contribution was very evenly distributed with four out of five starters reaching double digits in points. For UMass, Anderson had one of his best performances of the year with twenty one points and ten rebounds. Ray Miller chipped in eleven off the bench, but was the singular production as GW outscored the Minutemen reserves 25-12. Steeves led the way with sixteen and twelve rebounds for GW and Watanabe was a menace defending the interior. He finished with three blocks while adding thirteen points and eight boards. The Minutemen return to action on Saturday, February 17th, at 7:00 PM as they travel to face the Davidson Wildcats

Game Summaries: Saint Josephs (2/10)

Opponent: Saint Joseph Hawks
League: Atlantic 10 Conference

Summary:

The Minutemen traveled to face the Saint Joseph’s Hawks this afternoon looking to continue their winning ways and avoid yet another state loss to the city of Philadelphia.
UMass was scorching early on as they converted five of their first six makes from beyond the three point line. As a result, they quickly built a 17-8 lead before Saint Joseph’s found some rhythm and responded with a twelve to two run of their own catalyzed by the toughness of James Demery and Taylor Funk. At this point, the game became very tight with both teams trading offensive blows and UMass continuing their success from downtown. In fact, the Minutemen connected on ten out of thirteen threes in the first half with five different players finding the range. In comparison, the team only shot five for seventeen from inside the three point line in the first. With just under six minutes remaining in the period, Carl Pierre and Ray Miller nailed back to back triples to stretch the advantage back to six as they looked to pull away before halftime. Still, the Hawks capitalized on UMass turnovers and fought back to tie the game as the teams headed to the locker rooms deadlocked at forty-one. In what was an extremely high paced and exciting first half, both teams received contributions from a number of players. Notably, Pierre led the Minutemen with Fourteen points on four threes and Demery Paced the Hawks with eleven.

Unique McLean got UMass going in the second, first collecting a long rebound and then leading a fast break that resulted in a two handed dunk for Malik Hines. On the following possession Carl Pierre nailed another three and then a layup to re-still the Minutemen lead.Yet, with just under sixteen remaining Taylor Funk (22 points) began to take over the game on the offensive end, this time with back to back threes to tie the game once again (51-51). Luwane Pipkins (21 points) had been relatively quiet up to this point, but the crafty guard began looking for his shot and registered two aggressive driving layups in a row, the second dropping for an and one. Still, UMass continued to struggle guarding Funk who kept on cooking from the outside  Fortunately C.J. Anderson (14 points, 7 rebounds, 7 assists) had the answer, countering with a three on the other end to equal the score (61-61)  Perhaps the biggest shot of the game came from the Hawks X factor off the bench, Chris Clover (18 Points). With just a two point lead, Clover hit a contested three to deflate the UMass defense and spark what would be a thirteen to four run to eventually stretch the advantage to nine (74-65). With 1:49 left in the contest, Pierfrancesco Oliva ended all doubt. The lanky forward drove the lane punctuating the exclamation point with a one handed slam as defenders spread like the red sea. In a game that was relatively close throughout (12 ties and lead changes), the Hawks found a way to pull away easily in the end. The final score was 85-73.

Analysis:

The Minutemen really cooled off in the second half, only making four out of twelve of their threes and allowing Saint Joes open looks to reduce the deficit in this area. Additionally, The Hawks did a fantastic job of taking care of the ball with only two turnovers in the second and brought their gritty and aggressive style of play resulting in many trips to the free throw line. In fact, the Hawks attempted twenty free throws, compared to just a measly four for the Minutemen. Lastly, Saint Josephs was far more aggressive on the offensive glass, out rebounding UMass ten to five. Demery finished with eighteen points and was the best player on the court tonight, while Shavar Newkirk added a very complete performance of 13 points, 7 assists and 9 rebounds. UMass returns to action Wednesday, February 14th, against George Washington.

Game Summaries: Rhode Island (1/30)

Opponent: Rhode Island Rams
League: Atlantic 10 Conference

Summary:

Luwane Pipkins stepped to the line with five seconds remaining and UMass down just three to #22 ranked URI. He calmly drained the first to cut the deficit to two and was now faced with the option of making the second or intentionally missing and hoping for an offensive rebound. Pipkins elected for the latter, quickly throwing the ball off the rim before anyone was set and collecting the carom off the front rim himself. What ensued next was pure chaos.

That was the situation UMass faced in the closing moments of their hectic matchup versus Rhode Island last night, but lets explain how we got there. The first half was a rollercoaster ride of runs as momentum shifted back and forth between both teams in mammoth proportions. The Minutemen started off fantastic, making eight of their first nine shots as nearly all of the starters contributed early. After back to back three pointers by Carl Pierre and C.J Anderson, Pipkins nailed a midrange jumper to give UMass their largest lead of the game (23-10) with just over thirteen minutes remaining in the first half.

At this point, the Minutemen were in complete control and looked destined for their biggest victory of the season and a massive upset at home. Then came the stampede from the Rams. After a relatively slow start, Rhode Island began to move the ball and find open shooters on the block through Andre Berry  (13 points in first half) and on the perimeter, eventually retaking the lead on an E.C Matthew’s (10 points) contested three pointer as the shot clock expired. After a few more baskets, the dust had settled and Rhode Island emerged with a 33-27 lead in the midst of a 23-4 run. The Minutemen were able to stay close for the remainder of the half and Luwane Pipkins nailed a step-back three pointer as time expired to ignite the crowd and head into the locker room down just three, a major accomplishment for the Minutemen.

The first part of the second half was very back and forth. Every time, the Rams looked to push the lead to double digits, UMass seemed to have a response. With just over eleven minutes remaining, Carl Pierre hit one of his four three pointers on the day (16 points) to reduce the lead to 60-54. After this bucket, Jared Terell and the Rams began to assert their dominance and run away with the contest. Terell showed his full arsenal of scoring moves, hitting a midrange layup, driving aggresively to the rim for a layup and nailing a wide open three pointer on consecutive possesions to give the Rams their largest lead (74-60) with just under seven minutes left in the game.

UMass struggled to fight back to single digits as the lead stayed at fourteen (80-66) with three minutes remaining. All hoped looked lost, but the squad fought back with a sixteen to five run spurred by an aggressive tone set by C.J Anderson (15 points) and Malik Hines (18 points, 6 rebounds) as well as a number of three pointers from the usual suspects in Pipkins and Pierre. The Rams had finally cooled down from the offensive end and were choking the game away with costly turnovers and missed free throws. Now, Pipkins stepped to the line down just two. As stated before, he had made the first free throw and collected the intentional miss, now for the chaos. Pipkins was hacked as he caught the ball and the referee signaled a foul. It appeared that Pipkins would have the opportunity to go back to the line, where he had been automatic all game (8-9), and tie the contest. Yet, it was not meant to be as he was called for a line violation, giving the Rams possession and virtually ending the game. The contest concluded with a final score of 85-83.

Takeaways:

It was a disappointing loss, but a great deal of positives can be taken away from the strong effort. For one, the Minutemen used the three point shot (9-16) and the free throw as ways to climb back into the game very effectively. At the line, they converted at a nearly perfect percentage (23-24), and getting there as much as they did speaks highly to their aggressive nature to take it right to the teeth of an intimidating opponent. On the other side of things, defense was solid early, but not consistently good enough to compete with a team as offensively talented and well coached as URI.

Rhode island was led by Terrell, who finished by twenty-one points, but Jeff Dowtin was undoubetdly their most effective playmaker on the night, dicing the defense with dribble moves and finding his teammates for good looks. Pipkins paced the Minutemen with twenty-seven points and Malik Hines (18 points, 6 rebounds) had arguably the best performance of his UMass career. Hines has developed into a well rounded post player and his value as an offensive rebounder is immense. The losings streak continues but the team stays optimistic as they travel to Dayton on Saturday, February 3rd at 2:00 P.M
