BC forgets troubles with Classic victory: Pounds Bay State foe UMass
By Mike Shalin, The Boston Herald, 12/8/2002

AMHERST - Less than a week ago, things looked about as bleak as possible for Al Skinner's Boston College basketball team.

Uka Agbai, his senior leader and inside presence, was gone - almost surely for the year - with a broken bone in his neck. Assistant coach Ed Cooley was confined to his home while doctors were trying to find out what caused last Sunday's medical emergency at the Worcester Centrum. And, the Eagles were 1-2 with a bad loss to Saint Joseph's and a close one to Holy Cross.

Things have changed. First, BC picked up an overtime win over a quick and talented St. Bonaventure team that rallied from 14 points down. Then, yesterday, the Eagles, in the words of UMass coach Steve Lappas, ``manhandled us,'' taking the Minutemen apart in an 80-62 Commonwealth Classic win before 6,392 at the Mullins Center.

``I really think the guys, as a team, have made a conscious effort to do the things we need to do,'' Skinner said after Troy Bell (21 points) led four players in double figures to ruin UMass' home opener.

BC used a 14-0 run over a 3:09 span early in the second half to break open a 34-30 game and cruise to their fourth win in a row over UMass, including three straight in this series.

Skinner said he thought the Eagles were ``relying too much on our talent'' and just weren't playing as a team. That all changed, he said, when Agbai went down and was reduced to the role of cheerleader.

``I'm sure it was Uka's injury, there's no question about it,'' said Skinner of the motivation for his team's inspired play. ``I think they realized that, hey, we have to settle down. The 1-2 start didn't do it - I still believe they felt they were eventually going to get it done.

``But now, we have to play a little bit slower because we don't have as much depth, we have to go a little differently. We made the change, with (putting Andrew Bryant on the bench) and starting two freshmen (Craig Smith and Louis Hinnant) - and all of a sudden we go from being somewhat of a veteran club to a young team, starting two freshmen and we only have one senior on the club now. That's real different.''

Now, Skinner said, ``It's getting better but it's not quite there yet.''

The Eagles, who visit Iowa State Tuesday night, spotted UMass (1-4) a 7-0 lead in the first 1:31 but were able to go ahead, 10-9 and take the lead for good, 26-24, with 6:57 left in the first half. They led by six at the break.

UMass center Micah Brand opened the second half with a quick basket. But Ryan Sidney, who last year played against UMass (and had a double-double) two days after he broke his jaw in practice, then scored eight of the 14 points in the run that put the visitors in control.

Sidney had 18 points, six rebounds and three steals, while Bell had five rebounds, four steals and two assists to overcome 6-for-16 shooting. Smith, perfect from the field (6-for-6) for the second straight game, had 12 points and six rebounds. Jermaine Watson added 11 points.

``Physically, they just manhandled us,'' said Lappas, who didn't have a starter in double figures in points or rebounds. ``It showed in every which way. That was the bottom line.''

Eagle a minutes man
BC-UMass Notebook
By Mike Shalin, The Boston Herald, 12/8/2002

AMHERST - One of the most significant numbers on the stat sheet from Boston College's 80-62 win over UMass yesterday had nothing to do with the usual stuff - points, rebounds, assists, steals or turnovers. It was Nate Doornekamp playing 35 minutes.

That's a career-high 35 minutes for the sophomore BC big man, who came into the game averaging 18.8 per contest and had never played more than 28 in a college game. The fact Doornekamp chipped in with four points, six rebounds, three assists and two blocks was almost secondary - he stayed on the floor and gave his team minutes and a presence because he wasn't in foul trouble.

``I just used my head,'' Doornekamp said. ``Most of the bad calls I bring upon myself.''

There have been times the 7-footer has been whistled for doing almost nothing. Yesterday, he was aggressive and got only two fouls.

``I don't want to jinx him,'' said BC coach Al Skinner, who wants Doornekamp to make the most of his fouls. ``We told him we don't need those cheap fouls - if you're going to get a foul, get a foul.''

UMass can't get a break

It goes from bad to worse for UMass. The Minutemen, already losers of all four games against Division 1 teams this season, now have to journey down Interstate 91 to play No. 11 UConn in Hartford Tuesday. . . .

UMass forward Jackie Rogers had seven points in the first 3:31 and then scored just two more the rest of the game, while grabbing six of his eight rebounds in the first half. . . .

Michael Lasme led UMass with 13 points and Gabe Lee had 11 - both coming off the bench. UMass starters shot just 11-for-35 from the field and went 1-for-10 from 3-point range.

Smith stays perfect

BC's Craig Smith will miss a shot again this year. But the freshman inside player went 6-for-6 yesterday and has now hit 18 straight (all 10 against St. Bonaventure and the last two against Holy Cross last Sunday). Smith played part of the second half with gauze in both nostrils to stop a bloody nose. . . .

BC got major contributions from freshman Louis Hinnant and sophomore Jermaine Watson as the two guards did their part to take the load off Troy Bell and Ryan Sidney (now a small forward). Hinnant's second-half turnover was his only one in 61 minutes over the last two games. It came after he was hit on the arm by a small plastic bottle thrown from the stands.

Watson hit his first career 3-pointer (on only his third try). Bell said he called Watson after the St. Bonaventure game to tell him to relax and do what he can do - noting his teammate was Massachusetts Player of the Year in high school.

Agbai will say goodbye

Uka Agbai joined Bell on the court after the game to receive the Governor's Cup, the trophy awarded to the winning team in the Commonwealth Classic. He'll try to join the team as often as possible for road games but isn't going to Iowa State because of further tests on his neck.


BC 80, UMASS 62
Search over as Eagles party
BC finds its game, dismantles UMass
By Joe Burris, The Boston Globe Staff, 12/8/2002

AMHERST - Moments after the University of Massachusetts suffered an 80-62 home loss to Boston College in the eighth annual Commonwealth Classic, UMass coach Steve Lappas was asked if the event should return to the FleetCenter, where its first three editions were held.

The coach's response would likely be echoed by just about any basketball enthusiast in Greater Boston - or perhaps any of the 6,392 patrons who showed up here yesterday.

''Putting it in the FleetCenter would be great someday,'' said Lappas, ''but this program is not ready to do anything like that right now.''

The Commonwealth Classic really isn't one, because one team appears to be making progress while the other is doing the moonwalk.

In a contest where both teams entered having struggled in search of cohesiveness and identity, BC (3-2) emerged having staged its best performance of the season, opening up a close contest with a 14-0 run over the first 3 minutes 43 seconds of the second half.

''It's clear to me that we had been so reliant on our talent, and that's why we started off a little bumpy, but now guys are focusing on what we need to as a team,'' said BC coach Al Skinner, whose team led by as many as 23 points (74-51, with 3:36 left), having prevented UMass from making surges with big shots of its own.

''Our execution has improved, as has our awareness,'' added Skinner. ''We're getting a little closer to how we want to play and what we want to do on both sides of the ball.''

UMass (1-4) left having suffered its worst home defeat to the Eagles since Dec. 3, 1966 (86-63). Yesterday also marked the fourth time this season that the Minutemen were outrebounded and shot less than 41 percent from the floor.

Troy Bell scored a game-high 21 points and teammate Ryan Sidney added 18 and tied a team high with six rebounds to lead BC, which overcame a raucous UMass crowd and an 7-0 deficit to start the game.

After the slow start, the Eagles were the aggressors through much of the game, as they finished with more offensive rebounds (21) than UMass had on the defensive end (13).

''They have a really good player in Troy, and when you have a really good player it makes everyone else better,'' said Lappas. ''One of our best things right now is who is our best player? They don't have that question, they haven't for four years.''

Jackie Rogers hit all four of his field goals in the first nine minutes of the game.
Early on, it appeared the Minutemen's best player would be Jackie Rogers. He scored 7 of the Minutemen's first 9 points and helped UMass establish a solid post presence. Even as BC battled back to take an 18-17 lead with 11:53 to go in the first half, UMass played well, shooting 70 percent from the floor.

But Rogers finished with just 9 points, all in the first half.

Over the last 10 minutes of the first half, Lappas implored his players to ''Look at Jackie, get [the basketball] to him,'' yet Rogers scarcely touched the ball the remainder of the half and took just three shots after intermission.

Meanwhile, BC got balanced scoring and rebounding. Five of its players had at least five rebounds, and the Eagles took advantage by scoring off second- and third-chance attempts.

''Think about where Sidney scored his baskets in the second half. All rebounds,'' said Lappas. ''That was the problem. Physically, we are getting manhandled. I cannot accentuate that enough.

''Forget about missing shots. You're going to miss shots. Missing shots would have made us lose this game, 62-58. We got manhandled. When I say physically manhandled, they're not manhandling one or two guys. It's a group thing.''

As a result, the best player for UMass ended up being freshman guard Michael Lasme, who scored a team-high 13 points and added 4 rebounds and 3 assists. He sank 3 of 6 3-point attempts and tried in vain to provide a spark to his team.

''I was frustrated [early on] because I was actually thinking about the loss to Central Connecticut,'' said Lasme, referring to the Minutemen's 46-45 defeat last Monday. ''That's what I had on my mind. It's our first home game, and we had to do better.''

With the score tied, 24-24, with 7:23 left in the first half, BC guard Jermaine Watson outscored the Minutemen the remainder of the half, 7-4. Bell added a dunk and Nate Doornekamp a free throw to give the Eagles a 34-28 halftime lead.

UMass scored the first basket of the second half, then BC responded with a 14-0 run - led by 8 points by Sidney - to go ahead, 48-30, with 16:17 left. UMass never came closer than 14 afterward.

The physical nature of the contest reached its crescendo with 4:40 left, when Rogers rendered a hard, intentional foul on Bell, who had his T-shirt ripped in the process.

Bell sprang to his feet and confronted Rogers, and officials stepped in to calm tensions.

Asked about the foul, Bell said, ''I felt like he really tried to take me out. I mean the foul was all right, but when he pulled me down, that was really unnecessary. Anything could have happened.''

BC visits Iowa State Tuesday, while UMass travels to Connecticut that night.


Sidney's performance speaks for itself
By Michael Vega, The Boston Globe Staff, 12/8/2002

AMHERST - About a minute and a half remained in yesterday's Commonwealth Classic showdown between Boston College and host University of Massachusetts when guards Troy Bell and Ryan Sidney were summoned to BC's bench. With the Eagles owning in control of a comfortable 19-point lead, Bell and Sidney, who combined for nearly half of BC's points in a convincing 80-62 victory over the Minutemen, had earned a well-deserved rest.

As he kicked up his heels, Sidney engaged some vocal UMass fans seated in the baseline end zone grandstands adjacent to BC's bench. Earlier in the second half, they had showered Bell with a chorus of vulgar chants when he sprang to his feet after he was grabbed around the neck and taken down to the floor by Jackie Rogers's intentional foul.

And so, as he sat on the BC's bench toweling off, Sidney delighted in letting the UMass students have it.

He jawed back and forth with them.

''They were calling me `Psycho,' and I was like, `Yeah, I'm psychotic,''' Sidney said, as he chomped on a piece of chewing gum while talking to reporters in a hallway at the Mullins Center. ''They were like, `I'm surprised you don't have a psychiatrist,' and I was like, `You got it backwards, because I do have a psychiatrist.' So, aha! Now where's the joke?''

The punchline: Had the aforementioned game-ending scene played out last year, Sidney would have had difficulty chewing and talking at the same time, especially after suffering a broken jaw in practice two days before the last year's Commonwealth Classic meeting at Conte Forum.

''We had no idea what he could give us at that point because he had just had this serious injury,'' said BC associate head coach assistant coach Bill Coen. ''We had no idea how it would affect him, particularly with the way he plays; a physical and attacking style of basketball. You just don't know. If he were more of a jump shooter and stayed on the perimeter more, maybe it wouldn't have affected him as much. But, to his credit, he's a warrior.''

With his jaw wired shut, Sidney proceeded to submit a heroic double-double (10 points, and 10 rebounds) in 36 minutes of gritty play in last year's 80-78 triumph over the Minutemen. It was a courageous effort that was only surpassed by Uka Agbai's 15-point performance last Sunday in a 71-70 loss at Holy Cross, much of it with a fractured neck.

''You gotta have heart,'' Agbai said yesterday, as he sat outside the visitors' visitor's locker room, his neck in a brace. ''He was able to come back out there last year and play well. It wasn't like he was back to normal, like he was before he hurt himself, but he was able to come out and help the team.''

While there was nothing heroic, really, about Sidney's 18 points (on 9-for-14 shooting), 6 rebounds, and 3 steals yesterday, it was very warrior-like. And, with Agbai on the bench for the next 6-8 weeks, that is precisely the kind of presence prescence BC needed on the floor in yesterday's romp over the Minutemen.

After BC took a tenative 34-28 halftime lead at halftime, Sidney fueled a decisive 14-0 run by scoring 8 eight points in that stretch. He combined with Bell (21 points) to score 39 of BC's 80 points.

''I think the guards helped the big men today,'' Sidney said. ''I think that's what we had to do, because [UMass] is pretty much a big-man team. They want to the get the ball into [Micah] Brand and [Jackie] Rogers.''

That he was willing to mix it up in the paint marked quite a departure from last year's game.

''A year ago, I wasn't chewing gum,'' Sidney said. ''A year ago, I had a broken jaw. A year ago, I was in a facemask and my goal was just to come out and play hard. I wasn't trying to do anything spectacular. I wasn't trying to do anything exciting. I was trying not to get hit in the face.''

Yesterday, though, there were no such worries. The Eagles beat UMass for the third straight time in the Commonwealth Classic, and for the fourth time in a row overall. And what perfectly punctuated it for Ryan Sidney was that he was able to get in the last word.


BC too physical for UMass
By Mike Moran, Daily Hampshire Gazette Staff Writer, 12/9/2002

AMHERST - The University of Massachusetts men's basketball team's inability to rebound and control the inside cost them Saturday's game.

Leading 34-28 at halftime, Boston College scored 14 unanswered points, 12 in the paint, to push a four-point lead to 18.

The Eagles rolled to an 80-62 victory Saturday ruining UMass' home opener in front of 6,392 at the Mullins Center to capture the annual Commonwealth Classic for a third straight year.

The Minutemen play No. 11 Connecticut at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Hartford Civic Center.

"(We were) physically manhandled inside and physically manhandled outside. The game really turned on the glass," UMass coach Steve Lappas said. "Even in the first half when we were playing well, I thought (BC's) offensive rebounding is really what changed everything around."

The Eagles outrebounded the Minutemen 44-31, with 21 on the offensive end. BC outscored UMass in the paint, 46-28.

Junior 6-foot-2 swingman Ryan Sidney (18 points) had six rebounds, and 6-foot-1 senior guard Troy Bell had five for BC, both more than 6-foot-11 UMass big man Micah Brand's four.

"It was a lot of loose balls and offensive rebounds that they got putbacks," Brand said. "Ryan Sidney had a lot of offensive putbacks. (Jermaine) Watson, and a lot of those guys got tips and putbacks down low that stretched the lead out. That's one thing we have to work on - intensity. Going after the ball."

UMass (1-4) started the game with plenty of intensity, jumping out to a 7-0 lead as senior Jackie Rodgers (nine points) scored the first five points.

Bell sank two 3-pointers while Craig Smith (12 points) scored on three layups as BC (3-2) eventually pulled even with UMass, 24-24, with 7 minutes, 23 seconds remaining in the first half.

The Eagles pulled ahead as Watson (11 points) scored seven of BC's final 10 points of the half.

"The main thing is we have to play hard for the whole game," Brand said. "At the beginning of the second half, we came out and everybody's intensity was still up and they went on a little run and we lost a little bit of intensity."

Boston College did an excellent job of taking Brand (six points, 3-for-7 shooting) out of the game while UMass failed to contain Bell, who finished with a game-high 21 points.

"They have a really good player in Troy and when you have a really good player it makes everybody else better," Lappas said. "One of our things right now is, who is our best player? That's a question. They don't have that question. They haven't had that question for four years. And that makes a difference."

While the Minutemen struggled to rebound the ball, their shooting woes continue.

UMass shot 39 percent (23-59) as Mike Lasme (13 points) and Gabe Lee (11 points) came off the bench to lead UMass.

Lasme, Lee respond
By Matt Vautour, Daily Hampshire Gazette Staff Writer, 12/9/2002

AMHERST - Halfway through the second half at the Mullins Center on Saturday, with the University of Massachusetts trailing Boston College 54-36, Minuteman freshman guard Mike Lasme tried to put the team on his shoulders.

Mike Lasme tried to provide a spark in the second half.
On three consecutive Minuteman possessions, he called for the ball, got it and buried 3-pointers each time.

It sparked a little enthusiasm from the crowd, which collectively gave up on the Minutemen shortly after intermission.

Lasme and fellow rookie sophomore Gabe Lee were small silver linings in a dark cloud of a game for the Minutemen, who lost 80-62.

Lee had his first career double-digit scoring game with 11 points, including 10 in the second half.

UMass coach Steve Lappas was pleased with his rookies, but warned against expecting too much from them this early.

"I'm happy with the way Mike Lasme and Gabe Lee responded. They're not supposed to be the guys yet, unless we're in an absolute total rebuild, which maybe we are," he said. "Unfortunately in this game, our better players were freshman. That's not good. That's a problem. It's a problem for now, it's not a problem ultimately."

Lappas said it was too early to think about the future.

Photo
Gabe Lee went 4-4 from the field in the second half.
"I'm not worried about someday, I'm worried about Tuesday," he said in reference to UMass' 7 p.m. game against Connecticut at the Hartford Civic Center. "I have no doubt that Mike Lasme, Gabe Lee and Jeff Viggiano are going to be the type of players that I want. They're going to be tough. They're going to play hard. But they are not ready to do that right now. We have other guys that are upperclassmen that need to do that."

Lappas said he wasn't sure if he'd change the lineup for Tuesday's game, but he was open to expanding the rookies' roles if they continued to play well.

"In both places I've been, I've started freshmen a lot, especially in my second year where I've been, because that's my first recruiting class really," said Lappas, who coached at Manhattan and Villanova prior to UMass. "I have no problem doing that."

WILSON PLAYS - After a week of explaining why he hadn't played Kyle Wilson yet, Lappas played him.

With 4 minutes, 5 seconds left in the first half and junior point guard Anthony Anderson's offensive struggles continuing. Lappas inserted the sophomore guard from White Rock, British Columbia.

Wilson played seven minutes, and made one of the two shots, a 3-pointer. He had an assist, a rebound and three turnovers.

"Kyle came in and did a good job today. He got a chance and played as hard as he could," said Lappas.

A NICE FIGHT? - With 4:40 left in the game, UMass senior big man Jackie Rogers hustled back on defense in an attempt to keep Troy Bell from scoring an uncontested basket. Rogers brought Bell down hard and was whistled for a hard foul.

Bell got up and took a swing at Rogers. He didn't land the punch and wasn't called for anything. BC coach Al Skinner said the move was uncharacteristic of Bell.

"He got grabbed pretty good. It's a scary feeling to be up there and have someone grab you around the neck," said Skinner. "With the previous injury we had (senior center Uka Agbai's broken bone in his neck), you can understand where a guy is going to get excited under those conditions."

Skinner, who played in the fight-friendly ABA following his career at UMass, said in his day that incident would have blown up.

"We would have had a nice fight when I played. There's no question about that," Skinner said. "I never really got hit like that. I had teammates get hit like that. I always tried to give the first blow anyway. I never shied away from it."

MISCELLANEOUS - UMass walk-ons Arthur Onoura and Paco Kotaridis made their first appearances of the season, with each playing a minute. Kotaridis made two free throws, the first of his career.

Brennan Martin made 3 of 4 3-point attempts and his nine points tied his career high.

UMass veterans search for spark
By Matt Vautour, Daily Hampshire Gazette Staff Writer, 12/9/2002

AMHERST - As the final minutes ticked off the clock in Saturday's 80-62 loss to Boston College, junior point guard Anthony Anderson sat dejectedly on the University of Massachusetts bench, a white towel draped over his head.

Photo
Veteran heads were down as time ran out.
Three seats to his left, Micah Brand rested his elbow on his knee and his chin in his hand, sharing Anderson's frustrated expression.

Behind them, the Mullins Center crowd began filing out.

The duo, from which much was expected, has flopped early this season. Anderson had just two points on 1-for-8 shooting. Brand had six points and four rebounds.

Their ability to bounce back from their early struggles will likely be the determining factor of whether UMass can salvage a season that has begun 1-5.

The two players' problems are different.

Brand's seems to be an issue of focus. The 6-foot-11 senior readily admits he has trouble keeping his intensity high.

Head coach Steve Lappas said it's not an issue of laziness or simply working harder.

"He knows that it's something within him," Lappas said. "He was pumped up for this game. He had a great practice Friday. But you have a game like today where he goes out and misses a couple of things and doesn't get a couple of calls and all of a sudden he's invisible. Micah goes from one second being tremendous to the next second being nonexistent. I think that's kind of been the story of Micah."

Lappas said keeping focus isn't only Brand's problem.

"We have some guys who struggle with that. Whether they let the frustration of missing a few easy shots get in the way of their focus," Lappas said. "Focus is a weird thing. It means you see through everything for the task at hand. If you lose your focus, that can get in the way of you playing with that kind of fire. We have some guys that struggle with that and they know it."

Anthony Anderson scoops up the loose ball.
That's not a problem with Anderson though.

A 5-foot-10 Lynn native, Anderson is a reluctant scorer to begin with. He's a true pass-first point guard. But prior to his rough start, he could score when asked to. He shot 40.8 percent last year (38.8 percent from 3-point range) and was the team's top returning scorer with 10.0 points per game.

But while he's taken good shots this year for the most part, they're not falling. He's hit just 12 of 48 shots (25 percent and 8 of 36 from 3-point range (22.2). Take his 6-for-12 effort (4-for-10 from long range) against Division II Chaminade out of the picture and the numbers look that much worse.

The shooting slump seems to have rattled the rest of his game.

"I'm concerned, very concerned. This is our guy. I think Anthony is playing hard, but he's playing lousy," Lappas said. "He's still diving and doing things for you out there.

On paper, Tuesday's game against No. 11 Connecticut would seem like a mismatch even if Brand and Anderson were playing well. If the twosome continues to struggle, the final score could range from ugly to embarrassing. But with nobody expecting UMass to win, Brand and Anderson could benefit. Anderson needs to find his shooting stroke, and Brand his intensity, to get ready for the rest of the season.

If Brand doesn't come around, Lappas could use Gabe Lee or go to a smaller lineup with Jeff Viggiano or Raheim Lamb playing up front. But in his mind, the consequences of Anderson having a bad year were far more dire.

"If Anthony Anderson is not going to be a good player for us. We are going to be in deep trouble," Lappas said. "He's got to be a good player for us and I still believe he will be."
