UMass comes undone: Minutemen go `soft' in loss to Dayton
By Matt Vautour, The Boston Herald Correspondent, 1/30/2002

AMHERST - The feast-or-famine UMass offense went hungry last night. That, combined with poor defense and rebounding, led to an 83-68 drubbing by Dayton in front of 5,146 fans, most of whom left well before the game was over at the Mullins Center.

The Flyers had runs of 13-0 and 17-0 in the first half, took a 43-21 halftime lead and coasted the rest of the way, snapping UMass' three-game winning streak.

UMass vs. Dayton Postgame Notes
From UMass Athletics

* This was the eighth meeting between UMass and Dayton. With the Minuteman loss, the series is now tied at four games apiece.

* The Minutemen trailed in tonight's contest 43-21 at halftime. The Minutemen are now 3-8 on the season when trailing at the break.

* Senior guard Shannon Crooks (Boston, Mass.) finished the contest with 21 points. This is the 16th time in 18 games this season that Crooks has poured in double-digits. It is also the 47th time in his career that he has scored 10 or more.

* Junior forward Micah Brand (Middletown, N.Y.) played a season-low 11 minutes after injuring his ankle in the first half. Brand had not played less than 15 minutes in any game since the 2000-01 season.

* Sophomore guard Anthony Anderson (Lynn, Mass.) poured in a career-high 20 points in tonight's game. It was the 10th time in his career that Anderson reached double digits.

* Anderson's six three-pointers eclipsed his previous career high five, and is the most treys made by a Minuteman this season.

* This marked the eighth time this season that both Anderson and Crooks reached double digits in the same game. The Minutemen are 3-5 in those contests.

* The Minutemen are now 0-4 this season when allowing 80 or more points, and have dropped 25 straight when yielding more than 80.

* Massachusetts is 8-1 on the year when holding its opponent to a field goal mark below 38.0 percent, but is now 1-8 when its foe has shot 38.0 percent or better.

* In five of its last six games, UMass has shot better from three-point range than from the field overall. Tonight, UMass made 12-of-28 (42.9%) from behind the arc, while hitting 23 of 64 (35.9%) from the field overall.

* UMass' 12 made three pointers tied a season high, matching the number made in a loss at Fordham.

* The Minutemen committed just five turnovers on the evening, the second lowest mishandles of the season.

``I told these guys after the game, we stink unless we play defense and rebound,'' UMass coach Steve Lappas said after his team fell to 9-9 (3-4 Atlantic 10). ``Were not a good offensive team. We have to play defense every day.''

Ramod Marshall led Dayton (13-5, 5-2) with 16 points, while Keith Waleskowski had 13 points and nine rebounds. Nate Green (12 points), Brooks Hall (11) and Sean Finn (10) all cracked double figures for the Flyers.

Shannon Crooks led the Minutemen with 21 points, five assists and no turnovers, while Anthony Anderson scored a career-high 20 points, hitting six 3-pointers.

Kitwana Rhymer, who had averaged 17.5 points in UMass' last two games, struggled against Dayton's sizable frontline, scoring just four points on 2-for-8 shooting. Dayton took advantage of an ankle sprain that sidelined junior big man Micah Brand for the second half and outrebounded the Minutemen 44-22.

Brand, who scored a career-high 23 points against the Flyers last year, stepped on a Dayton player's foot 4:24 into the game. He grabbed his left ankle and had to be helped off the floor. He returned four minutes later and hobbled around for six minutes. He spent the second half at the end of the UMass bench with his leg elevated and his ankle wrapped in ice.

Lappas wasn't sure of Brand's status.

``I don't know, we'll have to see,'' he said. ``If he plays Saturday (at Rhode Island), he won't be at 100 percent.''

Dayton opened the game on a 13-0 run as the Minutemen didn't score until the 13:44 mark when Crooks hit a pull-up jumper that made it 13-2.

The Minutemen looked like they might be getting on track when Anderson and Crooks hit 3-pointers on consecutive possessions to make the score 17-9. After a driving lay-in by Marshall, Anderson hit another trey with 8:54 left in the half.

But the UMass offense got worse. Dayton scored the next 17 points to take a 36-11 lead as the Minutemen were held scoreless for 5:11. The Flyers increased their lead to 28 points at 43-15, but the Minutemen scored the final six points of the period to avoid trailing by 30 in the first half.

Dayton big men Finn and Waleskowski dominated their UMass counterparts in the first half, outscoring (13-0) and outrebounding (11-1) them handily. The Flyers controlled the boards 25-8 before intermission.

UMass narrowly missed trailing by 30 again in the second half. Dayton extended its lead to 73-44 with 6:20 left in the game, but Brennan Martin hit a 3-pointer and the Minutemen finished the game on a 24-10 run to make the final score more respectable.

``The second half of this game was irrelevant,'' Lappas said. ``All of our individual stats mean nothing. The only thing that matters is that they outrebounded us and shot 59 percent. We won three games and we got soft. We thought we were better than we were.''


Dayton puzzles Minutemen
Flyers flatten lifeless UMass
DAYTON 83, UMASS 68
By Mark Blaudschun, The Boston Globe Staff, 1/30/2002

AMHERST - You figure it out. And when you do, give University of Massachusetts basketball coach Steve Lappas a call, since he doesn't know what to make of the Minutemen.

How could he? The Minutemen, seemingly on a roll with three straight Atlantic 10 wins - including a tough come-from-behind victory over St. Bonaventure Saturday night - came out flat last night. The resulting 83-68 loss to Dayton at Mullins Center meant more scratching of the head for Lappas, who has done more than his share of that in his first season in Amherst.

The loss seem scripted from the start when Dayton (13-5, 5-2) took a 13-0 lead. The Flyers expanded that to 43-21 at the half, then coasted home despite the Minutemen's second-half efforts to make things right.

UMass (9-9, 3-4), which will head to Rhode Island Saturday in an attempt to get back on track, showed none of the offensive cohesion of a strong inside presence coupled with the outside shooting of guards Anthony Anderson, Shannon Crooks, and Kyle Wilson.

Wilson, in fact, didn't even start, as he was recovering from an ankle sprain suffered in the celebration following the win over St. Bonaventure (he sprained his ankle while jumping).

This all worked against the Minutemen, much to the dismay of a sparse Mullins Center crowd (6,146), as fans chose to ignore the team's return to Amherst.

''This I never saw coming,'' said Lappas, whose team was outshot, outdefensed, and outrebounded by a staggering 44-22 count. ''But that's the kind of team we are. We win three games in a row and we think we're pretty good. But I told them, they're not as good as they think they are.''

The Minutemen were not good enough to handle a Dayton onslaught that produced a shooting percentage of 64 in the first half, making the game easier than the Flyers expected.

''We could have responded differently after a tough loss to Xavier,'' said Dayton coach Oliver Purnell. ''But our guys were ready to go.''

Leading the way was guard Ramod Marshall, who topped the Flyers with 16 points and was one of five Dayton players in double figures.

Another huge factor was 6-foot-11-inch sophomore center Sean Finn, who had 10 points, 9 rebounds, 3 blocks, and several intimidations.

The Minutemen never got untracked, falling behind by as much as 29 points in the second half before a flurry of baskets by Crooks (game-high 21 points) and Anderson (20) made the final margin semi-respectable - or at least not as bad as it could be.

But the UMass frontcourt of Micah Brand, Raheim Lamb, and Kitwana Rhymer produced only 7 points and 6 rebounds among them.

For Lappas, it was a frightening flashback to the stretch of bad basketball that produced a lopsided 63-38 loss to St. Joseph's at home and setbacks against Richmond and Fordham on the road.

''I can't tell you how disappointed I am,'' Lappas said. ''And I told them that. Against a good team like Dayton, we can not have any kind of letdowns of any kind. We're just not good enough.''

It was clearly a giant step backward after three major steps forward.

And now they are banged up, too. Wilson is still limping, and Brand sprained his left ankle last night and played only 11 minutes. His status against Rhode Island may be in doubt, although Lappas pointed out that he has four days to recover.

So do the Minutemen.


Balanced UD mashes UMass
Flyers' frontcourt dominates Minutemen in 83-68 win
By Bucky Albers, The Dayton Daily News, 1/30/2002

AMHERST, Mass--An outstanding defensive job enabled the University of Dayton Flyers to put together separate runs of 13 and 17 points in the first half Tuesday night, and they manhandled schizophrenic Massachusetts, 83-68.

An audience of 6,146 at the Mullins Center watched the Flyers get double-figure scoring from Ramod Marshall (16), Keith Waleskowski (13), Nate Green (12), Brooks Hall (11) and Sean Finn (10) as they stopped the Minutemen's three-game win streak and won here for the second time in three years.

Dayton made 59 percent (24 of 41) of its shots and collected twice as many rebounds as UMass (44-22) in winning for the 10th time in the last 12 starts. The victory leveled UD's road record at 4-4.

The Flyers led by 29 points (73-44) with 6:53 remaining before getting a little sloppy and allowing UMass to cut the final deficit almost in half. UMass made 12 of 28 three-point shots, including 6 of 7 by point guard Anthony Anderson, who scored 20 points. Shannon Crooks scored 21 as the pair accounted for 60 percent of the Minutemen's points.

"I'm proud of these guys," UD coach Oliver Purnell said. "We certainly could have been flat after a disappointing loss to Xavier on Saturday, then having to travel up here.

But, they really understood and internalized what we were telling them about this being an important game and UMass being on a bit of a roll. I thought we defended well. We didn't give them anything easy."

Dayton, 13-5 overall and 5-2 in the Atlantic 10 Conference, scored the game's first 13 points as the Flyers, especially 6-foot-11 sophomore center Sean Finn, rebuffed Massachusetts' effort to score in the paint.

"Sean had the best game he's had in awhile," Purnell said. "When he plays like that, we're kinda like UMass. We're big at the basket."

Neither 6-10 Kitwana Rhymer, nor 6-11 Micah Brand, nor 6-8 Eric Williams could score inside with Finn and the other UD post players defending the basket. The trio was 0 for 10 at the half.

Finn was credited with nine points, eight rebounds and two blocks in the half, but he got his hands on many more shots and forced the Minutemen to alter others.

"I thought I tipped a lot of them, but they (the statisticians) may not have seen it," Finn said. "I wanted to come out strong tonight. The last several games, I haven't gone up strong. I did a pretty good job of getting to the free throw line. The next step is making some of them." Finn missed 4 of 6 foul shots.

Massachusetts (9-9, 3-4) went to a small lineup for much of the second half, so Finn played only seven minutes after the intermission.

With his parents, other family members and many friends in the crowd, freshman guard Mark Jones played 19 minutes and scored a career-high 8 points. Green's 12 points included a perfect night (8 of 8) at the free throw line.

UMass was handicapped somewhat when Brand suffered an ankle injury with the game only 4:24 old, but the outcome probably wouldn't have been any different if he had been healthy. The Flyers were running their offense, shooting the ball well and grabbing practically every rebound. It was one-and-done for the Minutemen on the offensive end. Brand tried to play later in the first half, but was unable and he sat out the entire second half with ice on the ankle.

The first half was all Dayton as the Flyers outshot, outdefended and outrebounded the Minutemen. Playing tough defense and having no difficulty scoring on UMass, the Flyers broke out to a 13-0 lead. UMass finally scored its first points with 6:18 expired and drew a roar from the crowd.

Massachusetts tightened its defense shortly before the midway point and made three 3-point goals in a three-minute span, but the Flyers bounced back for a 17-0 run to lead 36-11 as UMass was scoreless for 5:41.

Dayton finished with 32 points in the paint to Massachusetts' 16.


Fans out in force for Flyers’ Jones
By Bucky Albers, The Dayton Daily News, 1/30/2002

AMHERST, Mass--Mark Jones, the University of Dayton's freshman point guard, had a large rooting section behind the Flyers' bench Tuesday night.

His parents, Mark and Katherine Jones, and his sister, Latesha Dawson, were among 36 people who came out to the Mullins Center for UD's game with Massachusetts.

Jones was able to spend Monday night at his home in Taftville, Conn., where is older brother, Lavar, is recovering from a serious injury resulting from a fight at a nightclub near his home. Lavar had his jaw broken, delaying his entry into the Army.

After a great outing at St. Bonaventure, Kitwana Rhymer wasn't much of a factor against Dayton, tallying only four points and two rebounds.
LINEUP CHANGE EFFECTIVE

Prior to his game with Temple on Jan. 19, when Massachusetts had lost five in a row, head coach Steve Lappas went to a three-guard offense. That meant freshman Kyle Wilson would be among the starters. Wilson scored 17 points in a 63-53 win over the Owls.

But it has been the play of center Kitwana Rhymer that has sparked the Minutemen recently. Rhymer had 14 points and four rebounds in a 73-60 win over George Washington on Jan. 23 and 23 points and seven rebounds in a 67-65 win at St. Bonaventure Saturday. In those two games, he shot .857 (12-14) from the field. Prior to those two games, Rhymer had been averaging 7.5 points.

HALL AT THE LINE

One of the criticisms of Brooks Hall is that he doesn't draw enough personal fouls. This season he has taken advantage of more opportunities to drive to the basket and has attempted 45 free throws in 17 games. Going into Tuesday night's game, however, Hall had gone four straight games without attempting a single shot at the line.

TOUGH UMASS SCHEDULE

Massachusetts has played the nation's 17th toughest schedule — second hardest in the A-10 behind No. 11 Temple — according to College RPI.com. Among teams on UMass' non-conference schedule are: North Carolina State, Boston College, Connecticut and Ohio State.

UMASS ATTENDANCE

In nine previous games at the Mullins Center this season, Massachusetts has averaged 5,935 fans — an increase of 456 over last year's 10-game average of 5,479.

JIRSA'S PARENTS HERE

Ron and Joan Jirsa, the parents of Dayton senior assistant coach Ron Jirsa, stopped at the hotel to visit Tuesday afternoon. The Jirsas, who are from Ledyard, Conn., also attended the game.

OSBORNE AT ST. FRANCIS

Jason Osborne, the little-used 6-foot-7 center who quit the team at Thanksgiving and withdrew from UD after the first semester, has transferred to St. Francis University at Loretto, Pa.


Flyers Dominate UMass in Amherst
By Matt Schwade, FlyerHoops.net, 1/29/2002

Coming off a disappointing loss on Saturday at Xavier, the Dayton Flyers responded in a big way by performing as Coach Purnell described after the game as “Pretty much, Total Domination.” Led by post players, Sean Finn and Nate Green, the Flyers soared past the Massachusetts Minutemen, 83-68, in Amherst, Massachusetts. With the win, UD improves to 13-5 and 5-2 in the league, while UMass falls to 9-9 and 3-4.

UD ran out to a 13-0 lead to start the game and never looked back from there. Finn set the tone early as he had two blocks in the first minute and a half, and took nine points and seven rebounds in at the break. He finished with a rebound short of a double-double scoring ten points and pulling down nine rebounds to go with his three blocks in just 20 minutes of play. Besides the blocks, his defensive presence was felt tremendously down low by altering many Massachusetts shots as the Minutemen could not get anything going while he was in the game.

Finn was one of five players in double-figures for UD on the night. Ramod Marshall led the Flyers with 16 points, Keith Waleskowski chipped in 13 and nine rebounds, Green added 12, and Brooks Hall tallied 11. All of Hall’s points came in the second half after he was in foul trouble early and sat out the majority of the first half.

David Morris played another superb game as the floor leader by scoring seven points, pulling down seven defensive boards, and distributing eight assists. He had three incredible feeds for easy buckets on the offensive end. Two bounce passes found Keith Waleskowski and Yuanta Holland for an easy four points. Morris also found Finn with a nice lob for an alley-oop dunk.

The story of the game once again was the domination of the Flyers on defense. UD held UMass scoreless for nearly the first six minutes of the game. They used first half runs of 13-0 and 17-0 to open up a 22-point halftime lead. For the game, Dayton held the Minutemen to just 35.9% shooting including 21.4% in the first half. Dayton finished the game at a 58.5% clip, hitting 63.6% in the first half.

The Flyers, once again, dominated an opponent on the glass as they doubled up UMass, 44-22. Dayton pulled down ten boards on the offensive end of the floor. Another key to the game was that UD made 30 of 43 free throws attempted.

Two Minutemen scored the majority of the points. Anthony Anderson and Shannon Crooks combined for 41 of UMass’ 59, as they scored 20 and 21, respectively. Anderson hit six three-point shots on the night and helped UMass tie their record of 12 made in a single game. Micah Brand failed to score and sat out most of the game after getting tangled with Brooks Hall and severely spraining his ankle.

After starting this series 1-3, the Flyers have won three of the last four meetings to even it at four games apiece. In this time, UD has been victorious twice at the Mullins Center, a place where UD struggled early in the Atlantic 10 days.

With the win, UD finishes the tough three-game road trip with a record of 2-1. For the time, the Flyers move ahead of Richmond in the standings by a half of a game. Richmond will play host to George Washington tomorrow night. The Flyers will return to action on Sunday when they host the St. Bonaventure Bonnies. The game time is slated for 2:00 p.m.


UMass defense porous, offense anemic
By Matt Vautour, The Daily Hampshire Gazette Staff Writer, 1/30/2002

AMHERST - Some University of Massachusetts fans were chanting for walk-on Paco Kotaridis in the first half, and most of the 5,146 people on hand were long gone before the game was over.

Tuesday night's game against Dayton wasn't even six minutes old and the game already was out of hand.

UMass' inconsistent offense was lousy and its usually reliable defense and rebounding were worse. As a result, the Minutemen absorbed an 83-68 beating in a game that was worse than the score suggests.

"I told these guys after the game, we stink unless we play defense and rebound," UMass coach Steve Lappas said. "We're not a good offensive team. We have to play defense every day."

Ramod Marshall's 16 points led Dayton, while Keith Waleskowski added 13 points and nine rebounds. Nate Green (12 points), Brooks Hall (11) and Sean Finn (10) all cracked double figures for the Flyers.

Shannon Crooks was again one of the only dependable scorers for the Minutemen.
Shannon Crooks led the Minutemen with 21 points, five assists and no turnovers, while Anthony Anderson added a career-high 20, going 6-for-7 from 3-point range.

UMass (9-9, 3-4 Atlantic 10) returns to action Saturday at 2 p.m. at Rhode Island.

Dayton won the game underneath. The Flyers' trio of big men Finn, Waleskowski and Green combined for 35 points and 20 rebounds compared with seven points and seven rebounds for their UMass counterparts, Kitwana Rhymer, Micah Brand and Eric Williams.

As a team Dayton outrebounded UMass, 44-22. No Minuteman had more than three boards.

Rhymer, who had averaged 17.5 points in UMass' last two games, appeared to be slumping again. He hit just 2-of-8 from the field and all of his misses were from short range.

Trailing by a wide margin, UMass added injury to insult. The Minutemen lost junior big man Brand to a sprained left ankle in the first half.

Brand stepped on a Dayton player's foot just 4:24 into the game. He grabbed his left ankle and had to be helped off the floor. He returned four minutes later and hobbled around for six minutes, but was ineffective.

He spent the second half at the end of the UMass bench with his leg elevated and his ankle wrapped in ice.

Lappas wasn't sure of Brand's status.

"It's hard to say. At least it's Tuesday, so we have a little time (till our next game)," he said. "If he plays Saturday, he won't be 100 percent."

Photo
Kyle Wilson played 19 minutes on a sore ankle.
It was UMass' second sprained ankle in as many games. Freshman point guard Kyle Wilson sprained his right ankle in the postgame celebration after Saturday's 67-65 win over St. Bonaventure. Wilson, whose status was questionable before the game, didn't start but played 19 minutes and scored eight points.

Dayton opened the game on a 13-0 run. UMass didn't score until 13:44 when Crooks hit a pull-up jumper that made it 13-2.

The Minutemen looked like they might be getting on track when Anderson and Crooks hit 3-pointers on consecutive possessions to make the score 17-9. After Marshall's driving lay-in made it 19-8, Anderson hit another three with 8:54 left in the half.

But the UMass offense slid after that. Dayton scored the next 17 points to take a 36-11 lead, and UMass was held scoreless for 5:11. The Flyers widened their lead to 28-points at 43-15, but the Minutemen scored the final six points of the half to avoid trailing by 30 in the first half.

UMass narrowly missed trailing by 30 again in the second half. Dayton extended its lead to 73-44 with 6:20 left in the game, but Brennan Martin hit a 3-pointer and UMass finished the game on a 24-10 run to make the final score more respectable than the game actually was, as the outcome was never in doubt.

"The second half of this game was irrelevant," Lappas said after the game. "All of our individual stats mean nothing. The only thing that matters is that they outrebounded us by 22 rebounds and they shot 59 percent."


Lappas bemoans uneven play
By Matt Vautour, The Daily Hampshire Gazette Staff Writer, 1/30/2002

AMHERST - University of Massachusetts coach Steve Lappas called it philosophizing, but in some ways it seemed more like therapeutic venting; He talked about his team more than he did about the game after Tuesday's loss to Dayton.

Photo
The UMass coaching staff looked on almost helplessly during the game.
As with most people, Lappas talked faster and louder as he got fired up.

"I've never had a team that had a bigger range (of ability). We can be so bad and have a chance to be so good," Lappas said. "Usually you're bad but you have a chance to be less bad or you can be good and you have a chance to be real good. I've never had a team that had both ends of the spectrum. Usually if you're so bad, you're not going to be good. You stink."

Lappas thought his team got a swelled head after beating St. Bonaventure Saturday.

"We won three games and got soft. We started to think we were better than we were and I'm partly to blame for that and they're part to blame for that," Lappas said. "I didn't see it because we got back from Bonaventure and I gave them Sunday off.

"After that game, we won a nice game and everybody is happy, I should have killed them. That's what I figured out," he continued. "They have to be on alert every second. There are teams that don't handle success well. We were 4-0 and we threw up the big clinker against Holy Cross. If we're going to look for some tendencies, I see some tendencies I don't like. "

Eric Williams tries to track down the loose ball.
He does plan to "kill them" after Tuesday night.

"Oh yeah, absolutely," he said. "That's standard fare."

Sophomore guard Anthony Anderson thinks it's a good idea.

"That might be something we need. He gave us Sunday off and we came out and this is what happened," Anderson said. "Maybe we should have practiced Sunday. A hard practice after a loss might help."

MILESTONE CHASE: Senior Shannon Crooks' 21 points were a rare bright spot for the Minutemen and for him, as he moved closer to the 1,000 point-plateau in his career. He now needs 34 to reach the mark and 77 to join the Minutemen's 1,000-point club. Crooks scored 43 points as a freshman at St. John's before transferring to UMass.

Crooks scored in double figures for the 16th time in 18 games this season for the 47th time in his career.

MISCELLANEOUS: With Wilson out of the starting lineup, Boston native Raheim Lamb made his sixth start. The Minutemen are 2-4 when he starts ... UMass fell to 5-5 at home this season, while Dayton improved to 4-4 away from UD Arena ... Anthony Anderson's six 3-pointers were a career high.
