Bona’s ‘D’ Mass-ters art of winning
By Brian Moritz, The Times Herald Sports Writer, 2/14/2002

AMHERST, Mass. — For the second time this season, the St. Bonaventure men’s basketball team struggled offensively against Massachusetts.

But on Wednesday, it didn’t matter.

Behind their best defensive game of the season, as well as some timely plays from senior J.R. Bremer, the Bonnies edged Massachusetts, 60-56, in an Atlantic 10 game in front of an announced crowd of 3,773 at the Mullins Center.

“I thought our defensive intensity, after the first five minutes, was great,” said Bona coach Jan van Breda Kolff. “We made all the big plays, Marques (Green) and J.R. made all the big plays down the stretch. It was a great team win.”

Thanks to the victory, and Temple’s surprising four-point loss to La Salle, the Bonnies (15-8, 7-5) move to within a half-game of the second-place Owls in the A-10 East Division with four conference games left. The top two teams in each division earn a first-round bye in next month’s conference tournament.

Although UMass (10-12, 4-7) shot better than 45 percent from the field, the 56 points is the fewest Bona has given up all season.

Bona also held UMass to just 4-for-21 shooting from three-point land (19 percent) and forced 18 turnovers, which the Bonnies turned into 17 crucial points.

“Defense wins basketball games, whether you’re shooting bad or not,” said Bremer. “Our defense won the game today.”

The Bonnies’ defense was at its best in the final two minutes. The Minutemen were down by two with 1:52 to go but turned the ball over three times to give Bona the game.

First, Green stole a pass from Shannon Crooks on a fast break. Later, Mike Gansey then drew an offensive foul on Kitwana Rhymer.

Then, with 12.6 seconds to go, UMass had the ball down three. But the Bonnies forced a five-second violation on the inbounds pass, and Bona hit three of its last four free throws to seal the game.

“We had plenty of chances in last three minutes,” said UMass coach Steve Lappas. “Overall, I was happy with our effort. Obviously, the execution was not good.”

Bona’s defense clamped down on UMass’ front court. Kitwana Rhymer, an all-league selection in the preseason, had just four points and four rebounds, while Micah Brand didn’t score and fouled out with more than 11 minutes left.

Also, the Bonnies held Anthony Anderson, the favorite for A-10 Rookie of the Year, to six points and five turnovers.

“We did a lot of different things defensively,” van Breda Kolff said. “We switched defenses, and the guys played and executed it very well. It had to be our best team defensive effort.”

For the first time this year, the Bonnies won in spite of their offense. Bona’s 60 points are the fewest they scored in a game this year.

Bona hit just 4-of-21 from three-point land — the four threes and 19 percent shooting are both season lows.

“It was ugly,” said Green. “I missed some shots that I don’t know how they came out.”

But the Bonnies got all the offense they needed from Bremer.

The 6-foot-2 senior scored a game-high 31 points, his seventh 30-point game of the season. Bremer was 10-of-19 from the field and 9-for-11 from the foul line.

“He played good, he played great,” Lappas said. “He’s a great player. He was terrific.”

Midway through the second half, Bremer scored six consecutive points as part of an 8-0 run that gave the Bonnies a seven-point lead. Bremer also had a three-point play with 5:37 left to give Bona a nine-point cushion.

However, the Bonnies didn’t have a field goal the rest of the game, missing their last seven shots as UMass hung around.

But Bona’s defense covered the offensive struggles.

“Our mentality at halftime was that we knew our shots weren’t falling,” Bremer said. “But we wanted to try to stop those guys. This gives us confidence that we don’t have to score in the 80s or 90s to win ball games. We can still score in the 50s and play hard, aggressive defense and still win ball games.”

Green added, "We know when it comes down to it, we can always stop the other team from scoring. That’s just another characteristic of our team.”

Despite fielding a much smaller lineup than UMass, the Bonnies outrebounded the Minutemen, 32-30. Bremer had a game-high eight rebounds, while Patricio Prato added seven.

“I think we went aggressively for the ball,” van Breda Kolff said. “We did a good job on the offensive boards of pursuing the ball.”

Raheim Lamb had 18 points for UMass, while Shannon Crooks added 13.

Green had 19 points, four assists, four rebounds and a career-high six steals, while all nine Bonnies who got in the game played solid defense.

“We were talking, we were all communicating, and that makes everything a lot easier,” Green said. “We didn’t have too many breakdowns on defense. It was a very good team win. Everybody chipped in.”


Bremer takes a place in Bona history
By Brian Moritz, The Times Herald Sports Writer, 2/14/2002

AMHERST, Mass. - J.R. Bremer knew his team earned a huge win on Wednesday night.

He didn’t know he made history as well.

The senior guard scored a game-high 31 points to lead the St. Bonaventure men’s basketball team to a hard-fought 60-56 win over Massachusetts in the Mullins Center.

The 31 points moved Bremer into the top-10 of Bona’s all-time scorers.

He now has 1,579 points, tying him with Glenn Price for ninth place. Bremer passed Rocky Llewellyn, 10th with 1,572 points.

“I was not aware of that,” Bremer said. “It feels good. It puts me in a class of people that I really never thought I could be in. It feels great to be among the top-10 scorers in Bonaventure history.”

Making the Top-10 — an exclusive club featuring guys named Lanier, Stith, Sanders and Hollis — is an impressive accomplishment in itself.

Doing so when starting your senior season with less than 1,000 points is even more amazing.

Bremer is in the middle of one of the top-five individual seasons in Bona basketball history. He’s averaging better than 25 points per game and third in the nation in scoring. He’s having the best individual season in more than 20 years, since the days of Greg Sanders and Earl Belcher.

Wednesday night was a vintage Bremer performance. In a game, where Bona struggled on offense, he scored 31. Every time his team needed a big play, he gave it one.

And in the process, produced a big win.

Of course, Wednesday’s victory was impressive for more reasons than Bremer’s history-making.

For the first time this year, the Bonnies won with their defense. For the first time, they followed up a huge win — this time a one-point upset of Xavier — with a solid performance. Wednesday’s game wasn’t a work of art. But it was a win.

“It’s real good,” Bremer said. “It was a real big win vs. Xavier, and we didn’t want any letdowns.”

Each time the Bonnies had won a big game this year, they followed with tough losses. After the exhilarating high of the Connecticut win, there were excruciatingly tough losses to Kent State and George Washington.

After crushing Temple, the Bonnies lost to UMass at home and on the road to Fordham. After a solid win at Dayton, Bona played poorly and lost to Richmond.

But four days after stunning Xavier, the Bonnies responded not only with a win, but also with their most mature performance of the season.

Bona shot poorly from three-point land, a paltry 4-of-21. Earlier in the season, a shooting night like that would have doomed the Bonnies.

But on Wednesday, they played through their shooting struggles. They played their best defense of the season. They forced UMass to lose the game instead of trying too hard to win it themselves.

“It’s a growing process from Day One,” Bremer said. “Every day, we try to get better.”

The Bonnies have gotten better as the season has progressed.

And nobody’s been better than Bremer.


UMass Loses Nailbiter, 60-56
By Justin Pearson, The Massachusetts Daily Collegian Staff, 2/14/2002

AMHERST - At his weekly radio show on Monday night, Massachusetts men's basketball coach Steve Lappas said that he wanted his Minutemen to keep the score against St. Bonaventure in the 60's. If they did so Lappas felt that his squad would be able to knock off the high-flying Bonnies for the second time this season.

Less than a month ago the Minutemen handed St. Bonaventure its first home loss of the 67-65 on a Micah Brand dunk with less than 10 seconds remaining.

However there would be no such heroics last night as J.R. Bremer scored 31 points and Marques Green added 19 to give the Bonnies a 60-56 victory at the Mullins Center.

Bremer and Green were the offense for the Bonnies as the rest of the team managed just a paltry 10 points on 2-of-15 shooting. However it was enough as Anthony Anderson was unable to inbound the ball with 17.6 seconds left and UMass down by three. Bremer then hit one of two free throws a few seconds later to put the game away.

"Everybody feels down right now," said sophomore forward Raheim Lamb. "We had a chance to win and we just gave away the game."

Bremer hit 10-of-19 shots and 9-of-11 free throws en route to 31 points, marking the seventh time this season that he has scored 30 or more.

Lamb led the Minutemen with a career high 18 points but the inside trio of Brand, Kitwana Rhymer and Eric Williams managed just eight points and 13 boards against the much smaller Bonnies. Brand was the main culprit as he grabbed just two rebounds before picking up his fourth and fifth fouls at the 11:47 mark of the second half. Brand fouled Bremer on a layup and was then whistled for a technical foul immediately following the play for his fifth of the night. With Brand on the bench Lappas was forced to go to a smaller lineup thus negating his squad interior advantage. With Brand out for most of the second half SBU was able to grab a 32-30 rebounding edge including 12-7 on the offensive glass.

The Bonnies came into the game averaging more than 80 points per game and led the nation in three-pointers made. However, they scored a season low 60 points shot 35-percent from the floor and made just four-of-21 three-pointers.

But one of those three's was one of the biggest baskets of the game. Senior forward Vidal Massiah knocked down a three off an inbound pass with just one second left on the shot clock to give the Bonnies a 31-29 lead for his only points of the game.

In the end it was turnovers that killed the Minutemen as they gave the ball over 18 times including twice in the final 90 seconds when they had the ball in the offensive end with a chance to tie. With UMass down by two Shannon Crooks (13 points) tried to fire a pass into the lane to a slashing Rhymer, only for the 5-foot-7 Green to step into the passing lane and grab his game-high sixth steal.

Less than a minute later UMass once again had a chance to tie after Crooks tied up Green in front of the Minuteman bench giving the ball back to UMass. However, Anderson could not get the ball inbounds giving the ball back to the Bonnies who put the game away at the free throw line.


Minutemen board stiff vs. Bonnies
By Mark Murphy, The Boston Herald, 2/14/2002

AMHERST - Pity not Steve Lappas. As the UMass coach has often said, he'll be around for a while.

But that didn't stop the coach from reaching for the Dramamine last night, as his team slid down the backside of yet another wave.

Though the Minutemen gamely matched strides with a far more athletic and quick St. Bonaventure team, the result was a 60-56 loss to the Bonnies at the Mullins Center.

Beyond heroic efforts from Shannon Crooks (13 points), point guard Anthony Anderson (six points, five assists) and the ever-improving Raheim Lamb (18 points), the Minutemen crumbled. Center Kitwana Rhymer had four points, but didn't score a basket until the last 3:40. Micah Brand, who did not score, fouled out on a technical foul with 11:47 left.

As a result, the Minutemen (10-12, 4-7 Atlantic 10) fell prey to J.R. Bremer, the conference scoring leader, who delivered a scorching 31-point performance. Point guard Marques Green added 19 points.

Bremer and Green combined for 50 of the points for St. Bonaventure (15-8, 7-5), which was held to 35 percent shooting - a solid overall defensive performance, as far as Lappas was concerned.

Bremer also had eight rebounds, matching the combined total of Rhymer (six) and Brand (two).

For all of their merits, the Minutemen were also at their perplexing worst under the basket, and thus unable to take advantage of a St. Bonaventure weakness that led to a UMass win on Jan. 26 in Olean, N.Y.

``The biggest disappointment I had tonight with the big guys was their offensive rebounding,'' said Lappas. ``There's no question that (Lamb) is our best offensive rebounder, and he has been for some time. Raheim played a great game tonight, but I don't want him at (power forward). We need him at (small forward).''

If not for the 6-foot-6 Lamb, who played much of the game as an undersized power forward on a team that shouldn't need him in that role, the Minutemen might have been entirely hollow on the offensive glass. That's where the sophomore from Boston English grabbed three of his five rebounds.

But forced to live with the invisibility of their two big men - oddly enough the two players who shared the conference's most improved player award last season - the Minutemen had just enough to fall short.

Though UMass took the lead twice early in the second half, the Bonnies moved ahead for good with 13:18 left in the midst of a five-point flurry from Bremer.

Just when the Bonnies appeared set to run away, the Minutemen came back to life, sandwiching a Crooks runner, a Willie Jenkins 3-pointer and Rhymer's first hoop of the game around a Bremer three-point play. Rhymer's dunk cut the Bonaventure lead to 52-48 with 3:30 left.

And though they chopped the margin to three (57-54) with 20 seconds left on two Anderson free throws, the Minutemen were unable to capitalize when Jenkins and Crooks tied up Bremer for a turnover at the other end with 17 seconds left.

Anderson was unable to inbound the ball as his teammates struggled to get open. The Bonnies closed it out on a Bremer free throw, followed by two from Patricio Prato with five seconds left.


Lappas T'd off over Brand's act
UMass Notebook
By Mark Murphy, The Boston Herald, 2/14/2002

AMHERST - By day, and usually night, Micah Brand is as friendly and solid a citizen as you could meet.

Perhaps that's why UMass coach Steve Lappas considered the junior forward's actions so unforgivable during last night's 60-56 loss to St. Bonaventure.

Brand first fouled J.R. Bremer with 11:47 left and the St. Bonaventure star converted the three-point play. Brand then got into a scuffle with Patricio Prato, earning each player a technical foul. Because Brand committed his fourth foul on Bremer, the technical was his ticket out of the game.

He left scoreless, missing all three of his shots while grabbing just two rebounds. Lappas was unforgiving.

``I don't know if I've had a technical called on one of my players in eight years, and I'm upset at him,'' said Lappas. ``He should not get a technical foul. Part of us learning how to win is the ability to put these things aside and concentrating on winning.

``The thing is that one of our best players took himself out of the game.''

Brand wasn't alone, however. Fellow big man Kitwana Rhymer finished with four points and six rebounds.

``This was a game he was capable of playing good in,'' Lappas said, referring to the Bonnies' lack of size.

Where is everyone?

Perhaps the most dour record of all was set last night. The Minutemen played in front of a quiet crowd of 3,773 - the smallest in the history of the Mullins Center. St. Bonaventure also became the first team to beat the Minutemen three straight times at Mullins.

``We haven't played as well at home,'' said Lappas. ``That's a bizarre thing. But that's also something that has to change.'' . . .

UMass returned to practice this week with the pleasant, and not at all surprising news that sophomore point guard Anthony Anderson had been named the Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Week for the fourth time.

He averaged 12.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 4.0 assists over the last two games, Saturday's win over La Salle and last Wednesday's loss to Duquesne.


UMass offense stalls in loss to Bonnies
By Matt Vautour, The Daily Hampshire Gazette Staff Writer, 2/14/2002

AMHERST - If Steve Lappas had been told before the game that his University of Massachusetts men's basketball team would hold St. Bonaventure to 60 points and 34.7 percent shooting Wednesday, he would have assumed that the Minutemen would get a win.

But the offense couldn't hold up its half of the load as UMass (10-12, 4-7 Atlantic 10) fell 60-56 in front of 3,773, the smallest crowd in the 10-year history of the Mullins Center.

After trailing most of the night, UMass blew two key chances to tie the game.

With 1:15 left and UMass down 52-50, Shannon Crooks tried to get the ball inside to Kitwana Rhymer, but 5-foot-7 Marques Green was hidden from Crooks' view and leapt out to steal the pass. Crooks fouled him at the other end. He made both free throws to put the visitors ahead 54-50.

"I didn't see him at all," Crooks said. "Being little is a big advantage to him. I saw Kit slashing. I thought it was going to be a sure layup or dunk. It surprised me. It was a crucial point in the game and I have to take fault for it."

UMass kept fighting and with 17.6 seconds left and the Minutemen trailing 57-54, Willie Jenkins tied up J.R. Bremer with the possession arrow pointing favorably. But with UMass out of timeouts, Anthony Anderson couldn't inbound the ball from in front of the UMass bench as nobody got open and the Minutemen were called for a five-second violation.

"The one thing that we have done in the past couple days that we did not do that first game (against UMass) was try to deny the inbounds pass," said St. Bonaventure coach Jan van Breda Kolff said. "To the players' credit, they really executed that well."

Lappas was frustrated that nobody got open.

"Everybody has to continue to work hard to get the ball inbounds," Lappas said. "You run a play. If the play doesn't work, everybody has to keep moving and get open."

Those two missed opportunities were hardly the only culprits.

UMass turned the ball over 18 times.

Rhymer, who had 23 points against St. Bonaventure in the teams' first meeting Jan. 26, didn't even attempt a shot for the first 33:50 of the game and finished with just four points.

Micah Brand fouled out of the game with 11:47 remaining, his fifth coming on a technical foul. He finished with no points and two rebounds.

The Bonnies (15-8, 7-5) who don't use a player over 6-foot-8, outrebounded the much taller Minutemen, 32-30.

The Minutemen were whistled for 21 fouls and didn't shoot their first free throws until the final two minutes of the game. Conversely the Bonnies were called for 13 fouls and made 22-of-29 from the line.

Asked about the discrepancy, Lappas avoided direct comment on the officiating but was clearly frustrated by it.

The loss wasted a great effort by Raheim Lamb who had a career-high 18 points to lead the Minutemen, while Crooks added 13.

"Lamb played a great game tonight," Lappas said. "He did a lot of damage around the basket tonight. I don't think there is any question that he is our best offensive rebounder."

J.R. Bremer had 31 points and eight rebounds to lead the Bonnies, while Green added 19.

Lappas was pleased with his team's defense against the Bonnies.

Steve Lappas couldn't get his troops over the hump in the second half.
"They lead the nation in scoring. They lead the nation in 3-point shooting," Lappas said. "They got four threes and they shot 34.7 percent from the field."

UMass' quest to keep the pace reasonable was successful in the first half as they held the Bonnies to their lowest pre-intermission total of the season but still trailed 26-25.

The Minutemen travel to Philadelphia this weekend to start a two-game trip. They play Temple at noon on Saturday and St. Joseph's at 9:30 on Tuesday.


Drought up front
By Matt Vautour, The Daily Hampshire Gazette Staff Writer, 2/14/2002

AMHERST - With 11:47 left in Wednesday's game, University of Massachusetts big man Micah Brand was whistled for his fourth foul after he bumped J.R. Bremer of St. Bonaventure.

Photo
Raheim Lamb saw a lot of time with Brand out after only 10 minutes.
Brand, who fell down on the play, and Patricio Prato of St. Bonaventure jawed at each other when Brand regained his feet.

Both players were given technicals. Brand, who had three fouls before the play, was suddenly out of the game, finishing scoreless in 10 minutes of play.

UMass coach Steve Lappas was angry with him after the game.

"I don't know if I've had a technical foul on one of my players in eight years and I'm upset about that technical foul," Lappas said. "I don't care what happened, that shouldn't have happened. He should not get a technical foul in any case. I don't care what the guy on the other team did to him. It doesn't matter.

"We need to concentrate solely on one thing which is winning," Lappas continued. "Instead one of our best players took himself right out of the game."

Lappas said he wasn't planning on further disciplining Brand.

Brand wasn't the only big man to disappear despite UMass' considerable size advantage. Senior Kitwana Rhymer didn't even attempt a shot until there was 6:10 left in the game. He had 23 against the Bonnies last month.

"It's a game he's capable of playing well in," Lappas said. "He did it once. It's the same guys and it's at home, but we haven't played as well at home as we did on the road as weird as that sounds."

Reserve big man Eric Williams was strong at times and finished with four points and five rebounds in 13 minutes, but didn't do enough to alter the course of the game.

It wasn't just scoring either. The undersized Bonnies outrebounded the Minutemen 32-30. Lappas said his team's lack of offensive rebounds were missed opportunities.

Photo
Shannon Crooks had 13 points, but Lappas needs him to do more.
"The biggest disappointment I had with out guys at halftime was that we weren't getting any offensive rebounds," Lappas said. "I know we're going to miss shots, but let's get some offensive rebounds."

SLOW RELEASE: Since scoring 17 points against Temple, freshman point guard Kyle Wilson has struggled offensively. Lappas said one of his problems is his shot release.

"He does not release the ball quickly and he releases it low," Lappas said. "He just kind of pushes it from his chest," Lappas said. "He needs a lot of work in the off-season."

NEXT UP: The Minutemen will face a frustrated Temple squad at 1 p.m. Saturday. The Owls lost to La Salle, 71-67, last night at Tom Gola Arena.

MISCELLANEOUS: St. Bonaventure became the first team to beat the Minutemen three times in the Mullins Center.

St. Bonaventure's 60 points were the fewest the Bonnies have scored all season.

Anthony Anderson's six-point effort ended his five- game streak of scoring in double figures.

Shannon Crooks moved closer to becoming UMass' 35th career 1,000-point scorer. His 13 points gave him 975.

UMass is now 4-6 vs. Catholic schools.

A VOICE FROM THE PAST: Former UMass play-by-play voice Marc Vandermeer was named the radio broadcaster for the expansion Houston Texans of the NFL. Vandermeer currently calls games for the University of Miami.
