UMass `no good' in loss
By Tim Vacek, The Boston Herald, 2/6/2003

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - In even the worst of losses, most coaches can find positives to build on, but UMass coach Steve Lappas struggled to do so after last night's 71-45 loss to Tennessee at Thompson-Boling Arena.

``No good things,'' Lappas said. ``Honestly, no good things.''

UMass (8-13) scored just 15 points in the second half, and senior and leading scorer Jackie Rogers scored just two points in seven minutes for the game.

``Maybe we're not good enough to score 60 against a team like that on the road,'' Lappas said. ``After a while you cut it to 10 and think you're doing something, but you just can't score.''

UMass did close the gap to 47-37 on a 3-pointer from guard Anthony Anderson, but the Volunteers (12-6) answered with a 17-0 run to gain a 64-37 advantage and put the Minutemen away early in the second half.

Anderson scored just six points and shot 2-of-9 from the floor, but Lappas said he was more concerned with Rogers, who picked up a foul in the first minute of the game.

``We told him all day, `You can't foul. You can't foul.' And he gets a foul like that,'' Lappas said. ``He took himself out of the game. They didn't do anything to him.''

Center Micah Brand came off the bench to try to pick up the slack for Rogers, scoring 14 points on 6-of-11 shooting.

Brand scored nine of the Minutemen's first 18 points.

``I don't really think that it was up to me to carry them,'' Brand said. ``I took shots that were given to me open.''

In addition to Brand's support from the bench, Lappas said he found one positive in last night's loss, but it was mixed in with too many negatives.

``To be honest, I thought our defense was not bad,'' he said. ``We played a little zone in the first half, and they hit two 3's in a row. So, that's why I went away from that, but this game was not about our defense.

``That to me is what the game was - pathetic offense.''

UMass shot just 25 percent from the floor in the second half and 34.6 percent for the game. The Minutemen also turned the ball over 17 times and had only nine assists.

UMass got to the free throw line eight times in the game, and made just four attempts.

Ron Slay, the SEC's leading scorer, had 21 points for Tennessee.

Lappas said it was clear what this loss should do to his team, as the Minutemen prepare for a game at home against Temple on Saturday.

``Shame should bring anger, in that order - shame, anger,'' Lappas said. ``We have to go beat Temple Saturday. Thats the most important thing right now.''

Vols finally get breather, rout UMass 71-45

Tennessee, stepping out of SEC play, drilled Massachusetts 71-45 Wednesday night at Thompson-Boling Arena.

Six of UT's games this year have been decided on the final possession. Not this one.

The Vols (12-6) blasted away early in the second half and buried the visitors from the Atlantic 10 Conference.

Even seldom-seen crowd favorites Boomer Herndon and Pee-Wee Gash got in the act.

Ron Slay led UT with 21 points on an economical 9-of-13 shooting effort.

Thaydeus Holden scored all 13 of his points in the first half.

Herndon, the 6-foot-10 freshman, had career highs of five points and seven rebounds.

Micah Brand came off the bench to lead UMass (8-13) with 14 points.

Tennessee was shooting a red-hot 60 percent early in the second half. After a sloppy finish, the Vols ended at 51.8.

The 11 turnovers matched a season-low.

The Vols expanded a 39-30 halftime lead to 47-30 only to see the Minutemen cut it to 47-37.

Slay then ignited a 17-0 run with a trey, followed by a Jon Higgins trey.

Derek Stribling hit a short jumper, then made a steal which Higgins saved and lobbed to a streaking Slay for a dunk to make it 57-37.

Stanley Asumnu scored, Higgins hit another trey and Brandon Crump's 15-footer made it 64-37 with 8:20 to play.

UT got to its 39-30 halftime lead mostly due to Holden. The senior guard hit three 3-pointers.

Back-to-back 3-pointers from Holden and John Winchester doubled a 30-24 lead to 36-24, the Vols' biggest of the half.

UMass cut it back to 36-30, but the Vols got the last word. Watson hit a free throw and Holden scored on the run - taking a long pass from Winchester to make it 39-30.

For UMass, leading scorer Jackie Rogers picked up two fouls in the first 46 seconds and scored only two points.

The Minutemen shot 34.6 percent from the field.

UMass' final score tied for its low of the season. The Minutemen lost to Central Connecticut State 46-45 on Dec. 2.

UT returns to SEC action Saturday when No. 17 Georgia visits.


Vols dominate late, rout UMass 71-45

So much for overlooking UMass.

Tennessee used a stingy second half defense and 17-0 run to throttle the Minutemen 71-45 on Wednesday night in Thompson-Boling Arena.

"One of the concerns we had as a coaching staff tonight was how we would come out early," Tennessee coach Buzz Peterson said.

Ron Slay led Tennessee (12-6, 4-3 SEC) with a game-high 21 points, including the first six of the second half.

"I thought, just overall, Ron Slay had a solid game tonight," Peterson said. "He's playing with a lot of confidence."

None of the Volunteers looked to have confidence early. Or maybe too much. Either way, the Minutemen (8-13, 2-6 Atlantic-10) took an early 4-2 lead by controlling the tempo and holding the Vols to bad looks from the floor.

"We came out pretty slow," Peterson said. "I give UMass credit for that. We kind of got smacked around a little bit there ... then we finally took it to them."

Added freshman guard C.J. Watson, who had six points, seven assists and five rebounds: "We were too relaxed out there for some reason. We had to change a couple things and get some intensity back."

Peterson turned to a senior for that intensity, but for a change, it wasn't Slay. All Thaydeus Holden's 13 points came in the first half, as he connected on 3-of-4 from beyond the arc and led the Vols to a 39-30 halftime lead.

"Thaydeus helped get us going there in the first half," Peterson said. "His shot was falling and he made some things happen."

Holden, known primarily for defense, said the extra time he's spent on his jumpshot lately is starting to show.

"I have a lot more confidence now," he said. "I've been spending a lot of time in the gym lately shooting, and it's starting to pay off."

Peterson said he let the Vols know at halftime that a nine-point wasn't enough. He said the defense wasn't boxing out and the Minutemen were getting too many open shots.

"In the first half (UMass center) Gabe Lee tripled us on the offensive boards," Peterson said. "We harped on that. We needed to play with more intensity and start boxing people out."

If the second half was any evidence, the Vols sure seemed like they were taking Peterson's words to heart.

Tennessee went on an 8-0 run to start the half, opening up a 47-30 lead that essentially put the Minutemen away. Just to be sure, they later added a 17-0 run. UMass spent almost seven minutes in the second half without scoring a point.

"I've never been on a 17-0 run before," Watson said. "That was a first. We really played well and shut them down at times."

A transition alley-oop from Jon Higgins to Slay with 11:20 left in the game pushed the Tennessee lead to 57-37 and ended all hopes of a Minutemen rally.

With 13 points in the last 20 minutes, Slay almost outscored UMass in the second half. Five late points from Brennan Martin gave the Minutemen 15 in the second.

"That may be the lowest number we've allowed in a half here," Peterson said. "That may be the lowest I've seen as a coach. We really played some solid defense in the second half. It was a good performance."

Brandon Crump battled an off-shooting night to score eight points for the Vols, and Higgins had six. Senior Micah Brand led UMass with 14 points, while Marcus Cox and Lee added seven each.


Defense causes lopsided win

Now we know why they call them the Minutemen. Matched against a stifling Tennessee defense, UMass came up with about a point a minute in a 71-45 loss Wednesday night at Thompson-Boling Arena.

It was ugly for them in the first half. It was dreadful in the second.

Within reach at 39-30 at halftime, the Minutemen managed just five field goals in the second half on 25 percent shooting. For the game, UMass shot less than 35 percent and committed 17 turnovers.

"I think it was our best defensive performance of the year," said UT forward Brandon Crump, who contributed three steals and a pair of blocks. "Defense is really starting to define this team.

"We're getting better and better every game."

Since the heartbreaking loss to Louisville on Jan. 25, the Vols have strung together three wins and three defensive clinics.

South Carolina was held to 56 points on 36 percent shooting. Auburn, the SEC's best-shooting team, was held to 57 points at home.

Then came UMass.

After UT came out hot in the second half and extended the lead to 17, the Minutemen made a quick 7-0 run and had the lead down to 47-37 with 14:50 remaining.

They didn't score again for six minutes. Tennessee went on a 17-0 run and put the game away with a 64-37 cushion.

During the scoreless draught, if the Minutemen got off a shot, it was almost always one and done.

In other words, things got corrected at halftime.

In the first 20 minutes, UMass center Gabe Lee had six offensive rebounds alone - tripling the amount of the entire Tennessee team.

"Yeah you could say coach wasn't too happy with that in the locker room," Crump said. "He had a right to be angry. That was kind of ridiculous in the first half.

"We came out with more aggression after the half, and it paid off."

Denying nothing more than one shot a possession was key in holding the Minutemen to a half a point a possession, which UT coach Buzz Peterson said was "one of the best I've ever had as a coach."

"Coach has told us that if we play real solid defense, the rest will take care of itself," Tennessee freshman forward Stanley Asumnu said. "It all starts with the 'D.'"

Senior forward Ron Slay agreed.

"We've been preaching defense all along, we're just starting to really thrive on it now," Slay said. "That's where it all begins with this team."

The stretch of solid defensive performances couldn't have come at a better time for the Vols, who get a visit from No. 17 Georgia on Saturday.

The Bulldogs have the No. 1 scoring offense in the SEC at 81.4 points per game and scored 81 in an overtime win against UT two weeks ago in Athens.

"That's what we needed going into that game - another good defensive performance," Asumnu said. "We needed some momentum and we have it."


Tennessee rout leaves Lappas fuming
By Matt Vautour, The Daily Hampshire Gazette Staff Writer, 2/6/2003

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - There are quite a few to choose from, but any discussion of ugly moments in the University of Massachusetts men's basketball season has to prominently feature the second half of Wednesday night's 71-45 loss to Tennessee in front of 12,834 fans at Thompson-Boling Arena.

In the game's final 20 minutes, the Minutemen scored just 15 points as a relatively close game at halftime turned into a put-in-the-walk-ons whipping quickly after intermission.

UMass coach Steve Lappas was angry after the game and he wanted his players to share that emotion.

"Shame," he said, when asked what he hoped they were feeling. "Shame should bring anger. No good things came out of this game. It's the same old song. We're not good enough right now to get 60 points against a team like that on the road. We just can't score. Our offense was pathetic."

The 15 second-half points was a season-low for a half as the Minutemen made just 5-of-20 shots. It would have been worse if not for five points by Brennan Martin in garbage time.

Jackie Rogers and Mike Lasme, UMass' first- and third-leading scorers, respectively, combined for just two points. Rogers (two points) played just seven minutes with early foul trouble combined with Lappas' frustration with him.

The loss ended UMass' nonconference slate at 6-7. The Minutemen (8-13, 2-6 Atlantic 10) return to league play Saturday when they play Temple (6-12, 4-4) at noon at the Mullins Center.

"That was real frustrating," said UMass senior big man Micah Brand. "It was a long trip down here. We expected to be in the game, but we didn't have the same intensity in the second half that we did in the first."

Ron Slay led Tennessee with 21 points and seven rebounds, while Thaydeus Holden added 13.

Brand was the only Minuteman to break double-digits with 14 points off the bench.

"I just tried to take shots that were given to me and try to give an effort anytime I was on the court," Brand said. "My shots were falling."

"Micah was great," Lappas said. "That was the best game he's had in a long time. It was good to see."

The Minutemen hung on through most of the first half, but an 11-0 halftime-crossing run by the Vols made the score 47-30, 2 minutes and 44 seconds after intermission.

A fast break dunk by Rogers, a baseline drive by Marcus Cox and a 3-pointer by Anthony Anderson cut the deficit to 10 at 47-37, but the Volunteers scored the next 17 points to end the suspense.

UMass' initial game plan of putting Rogers on Slay disappeared quickly when Rogers picked up his second foul 46 seconds into the game. But Brand played well offensively in his place, scoring 11 of his 14 points in the first half.

The two teams stayed close early. A Jeff Viggiano dunk made the score 26-22 with 6:03 remaining in the half. But a basket by Elgrace Wilborn and 3s by Holden and John Winchester ballooned the lead to 12.

A 3-pointer by Anderson and a three-point play by Gabe Lee (seven points, seven rebounds) made it 36-30 with 1:12 left in the half. But that was the closest it got the rest of the way.

Lappas left his team with one final message: "We have to go beat Temple Saturday. After this, we better go beat Temple Saturday."

Lappas cries foul at Rogers
By Matt Vautour, The Daily Hampshire Gazette Staff Writer, 2/6/2003

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Because Jackie Rogers was guarding Tennessee's Ron Slay, the Southeastern Conference's leader in free throw attempts, University of Massachusetts coach Steve Lappas warned his senior forward about avoiding unnecessary fouls.

But 15 seconds into the game, Rogers was flagged for a reach-in infraction at the other end of the floor. Lappas quickly shouted in Rogers' direction. But that didn't help either as 31 seconds later, Rogers was whistled again, this time for a push after a missed free throw. Lappas threw up his hands and glared at Rogers as he walked off the floor with the game not even a minute old.

"We told him all day 'You can't foul. You can't foul,'" Lappas said. "Then he gets a foul like that, 91 feet from the basket. He took himself out of the game. They didn't do anything. He's a senior. He can't do that."

Without Rogers, the Minutemen threw a variety of defenses at Slay. They slowed him for a while, but eventually the SEC's leading scorer took over en route to a game-high 21 points. Meanwhile Rogers, UMass' leading scorer (13.3 points per game before the game), watched. Rogers is averaging 3.6 fouls per game.

Micah Brand, who took over Slay duties, praised the Volunteer senior.

Gabe Lee doesn't exactly challenge Ron Slay here. Slay scored 21 for the Vols.
"He's a good player. He can shoot outside. He can go off the dribble. He's strong," Brand said. "He knows how to create space and carve out space."

"(Slay's) a good player. I thought (Micah) did a good job on him in the first half," Lappas said. "In the second half, things got loosey-goosey."

MORE ROAD WOES - The loss dropped the Minutemen to 1-10 against Division I opponents away from the Mullins Center. In their last four road losses, the average margin of defeat was 26 points.

UGLY NUMBERS - The loss was UMass' eighth double-digit defeat this year and its fourth by 20 or more points. It was also the Minutemen's fourth game this season under 50 points.

MISCELLANEOUS - Thompson-Boling Arena is among one of the nation's largest arenas, holding 24,535. But because of minimal fan interest, dark curtains blocked a portion of the upperdeck, leaving less than 17,000 available seats. ... The loss ended Anthony Anderson's four-game and Gabe Lee's three-game streaks of double-figure scoring performances. Anderson finished with six while Lee had seven. ... The Minutemen added American flag patches to the left shoulder of their uniforms. ... Lee's high school coach Rufus McDuffie drove up from Camilla, Ga. to see his former player. ... Brand scored in double figures for the first time in six games when he scored 10 at Saint Joseph's. ... Alassane Kouyate's four rebounds were a career high.
