Play by Play
here used to be assurances in the Atlantic 10 - things you could count on. It didn't matter what year it was: Temple was always going to have the fewest turnovers in the league; Dayton was always going to the postseason; and Fordham was always going to be bad. Coaches changed, players came and went and years came off the calendar, but you could always be certain that the Rams weren't going to challenge for the postseason. Since joining the A-10, they were 31-113 in regular season play entering this year.
But now with the 2004-05 season more than half over, it appears the Rams are improving.
Their 6-9 overall record isn't going to get many people's attention, but surprising wins over Richmond and Xavier have Fordham 2-2 in Atlantic 10 play.
Fordham visits the Mullins Center to play UMass at 7 tonight.
Coach Dereck Whittenburg said Sunday's 76-74 upset of the Musketeers was another step forward.
''To beat a team like that, who has been a mainstay in our league for a long time, is great for our program,'' he said. ''I hope we can build from it.''
The Rams are improving because of the rapid progress being made by their freshmen. Rookie big man Bryant Dunston is already the team's best player, and the leading candidate for Atlantic 10 rookie of the year with 14.5 points and 7.8 rebounds per game.
''I knew he had a chance to be pretty good. He's a classy kid, but when he gets on the court he's a warrior,'' Whittenburg said. ''He's not just our leading scorer. He's our best player and the key to us having any kind of success. His future is very bright.''
Fellow rookie Marcus Stout has come on lately as well and is averaging 12.3 points per game.
''They're two very good freshmen. Those are the guys Fordham is banking on to help bring them back. They can do it,'' said UMass coach Steve Lappas, whose been impressed with the Ram defense. ''They pressure the heck out of you and try to turn you over. They play great defense.''
Lappas said he hopes that the Minutemen do not let down after Saturday's 76-74 upset of George Washington, the way they have after previous big wins.
''I always thought we had a great focus. I was always caught off guard when we didn't play well after a great win,'' Lappas said. ''Hopefully now we've learned our lesson. You go out and you beat UConn and GW and you know you can beat anybody. But you can go out and lose to some other teams and you know you can lose to anybody. Right now, we have to take it one game at a time and be ready every day.''
UMass will likely play without injured junior forward Jeff Viggiano, who didn't practice Tuesday, but is getting closer to returning from his ankle injury.
''He is probably not playing, but I will not rule out him dressing,'' Lappas said.

MHERST, Mass. - Behind 20-point performances from senior Anthony Anderson (Lynn, Mass.) and sophomore Rashuan Freeman (Schenectady, N.Y.) the University of Massachusetts men's basketball team defeated Fordham 76-63 on Wednesday night in Atlantic 10 action at the Mullins Center.
UMass (9-6, 3-2 A-10) shot a season-high 53.7 percent from the floor connecting on 29-of-54 field goal attempts. The Minutemen also hit 13-of-14 from the free throw line - a season-best performance.
After trailing by three points early in the second half, UMass put together a 17-to-5 run to take a 57-48 lead at the 7:35 mark. Fordham (6-10, 2-3 A-10) closed that gap to six on a three-pointer by Jermaine Anderson.
Anthony Anderson responded with a three-pointer of his own for UMass, one of four he hit in the second half. Sophomore Stephane Lasme (Libreville, Gabon) converted the conventional three-point play after being fouled on a dunk pushing the lead to 65-53 with 5:25 to play.
Freeman finished game with 26 points on 9-of-13 shooting from the floor. He also led the Minutemen at the stripe converting 8-of-9 free throw attempts. His play in the first half was key as he scored 18 of UMass' 33 points in the period - a career-high performance for one period of play. Tonight was also the first time in his career he has scored consecutive 25-point games.
Anderson scored 23 points, 18 in the second half, hitting 9-of-17 attempts including five three pointers for the game. He moved into 26th all-time on the UMass scoring chart recording his 1,144th point.
The duo's performance marked the first time since the 1998-99 season that UMass had two players with 20-point performances in consecutive games when Monty Mack and Chris Kirkland versus George Washington (2/17/99) and Xavier (2/20/99).
In the first half, UMass used a 12-0 run and held Fordham scoreless for 6:32 to take a 21-16 lead after tailing by seven points at the 14:41 mark.
Fordham ended the run on a three-pointer by Anderson, one of six shots from long range hit by the Rams in the period.
Marcus Stout led Fordham with 20 points and six assists followed by Anderson who notched 17 points. Both players hit four shots from long range to keep the Rams in the game until the midway point of the second half.
UMass outscored the Rams 32-to-16 in the paint with the attack of Freeman and freshman Jeff Salovski (Bristol, Conn.) who added eight points, four rebounds and four assists.
Sophomore Maurice Maxwell (Philadelphia, Pa.) hit double-figures for the third time in four games with his 10 points on the night.
The Minutemen return to action this Saturday when they host Saint Joseph's in a rematch of last Wednesday's loss in Philadelphia. The game is set for a 12:00 p.m. tip-off in the Mullins Center.
Mass, which is receiving votes in the AP poll, won for the third time in four games to move to 9-6 overall, 3-2 in the Atlantic 10. The Minutemen have reached the nine-win mark for the earliest time since the 1997-98 season, when they won their ninth game on Jan. 10 - in the 14th game of that season.
• UMass has now won 9-of-10 games at Mullins against Fordham and leads the all-time series, 20-9. The Minutemen have won six in a row at home vs. Fordham.
• UMass shot a season-high 53.7 from the floor on 29-of-54 shooting.
• Rashaun Freeman continued his dominant play with 26 points and seven rebounds. Freeman piled up 18 points in the first half including 10 in the first 13 minutes of the game. It marked his most points in any half in his career. Freeman's previous high for points in a half is 17, which came twice last season against St. Bonaventure (2/28/04) and at Richmond (3/6/04).
• For Freeman, it his 35th career double-figure scoring game in 44 career games. Freeman's 20-plus game was the 10th of his career and fifth this season. It was the first time in his career he had back-to-back 25-plus games and fifth time he had 25 or more points.
• Senior Anthony Anderson added to his career point total with a season-high 23 as he now has 1,144, which is 26th all-time. He passed Mike Williams (1,122) with his first three-pointer of the game. Next on the scoring list tied at No. 24 are Will Herndon and Lari Ketner (1,148).
• Anderson scored in double-figures for the eighth time in 12 games this season and for the 58th time in his 99 career games. It was also Anderson's 12th career 20-plus game and first this season.
• He moved to tied for eighth in career steals with 138. Carl Smith (139) is next on the list. Anderson added to his career totals in three-pointers (262), which is second all-time to Monty Mack, who made 331.

Head Coach Steve Lappas on the team's performance:
I thought our guys did a very good job of getting the ball inside tonight. I really wanted to emphasize that part of the game and I was really pleased with the way we played. I was pleased with our offense in general. We only had three turnovers and shot 54%, it was obviously a very good offensive game. Defensively I was not pleased with the perimeter defense, but you have to give Fordham credit, they made a lot of tough shots.
Lappas on Anthony Anderson driving to the basket:
It's been our plan for a couple of games. Right away in the George Washington game, he drove and injured his thigh and he couldn't do it anymore. We've been talking to Anthony more and trying to get him to play more like a 2-guard and not worrying about getting back on defense. Chris Chadwick will get back on defense. I want him to be more aggressive.
Lappas on Rashaun Freeman:
We knew they were going to double team him in the second half. Rashaun still had eight points in the second half, which is still a pretty good half. We knew we needed other guys to do things because we knew they were going to double team him.
Lappas on coming back after the win over George Washington:
I thought we responded well tonight. That's a step and we will see what happens on Saturday. They've been great all year. They work hard in practice every day. We have to come out with that mind set on Saturday.
Lappas on Anthony Anderson:
He's already our leader. We only have three upper classmen. Jeff Viggiano's a junior and we have two seniors. He has to provide a lot of leadership because we don't even have a junior class.
Lappas on Jeff Salovski's performance:
He always plays great. The only thing I was disappointed in was the fouls. I wanted to play him more. I wanted to play him 20 minutes but he got in foul trouble. How good of a passer is he? He hit Anthony Anderson with one on the opposite end, and he throws that first one to Rashaun in the first half for a lay-up.
Rashaun Freeman on following up the victory over George Washington with an impressive win:
"Yeah, we tried to go forwards, instead of going backwards, like we seem to have done, so right after the GW game; we knew we had to focus on another team. That game was over with, and we had another game coming up against Fordham today and we came into the game confident and not sleeping on them, because this was not an ordinary Fordham team. They are a lot tougher this year, but we played like a team and got it done."
Rashaun Freeman on his first half offensive-outburst:
"I felt good with my touches, and things like that, cause there are games where I get the ball and don't score as easily. My team noticed it, and they got me the ball in the right spots, and I just felt good every time I made a move.
Rashaun Freeman on his low-post moves:
"You know I always have that, but the thing with me is worrying about the double team. I just got to execute when they don't double team me, and when they do double me, I got to pass it out. That is the only thing I worry about, all the moves, that's a given for me, but it is the double teams that hurt me sometimes. My teammates got me the ball at the right times.
Rashaun Freeman on the lack of double teams he saw tonight:
"Every game I think that teams are going to double team me, and some teams do, and some don't. I just need to know what to do with the ball, and kick it out at the right times.
Jeff Salovski on his chemistry on the court with Rashaun Freeman:
"It shows on the court with the way we play. Tonight we had 29 baskets and 23 of them were on assists. The two of us on the court have a pretty good chemistry that at the beginning of the year I don't think was there very much. It is continuing to grow and hopefully it will keep on growing over these next two years that I will be here with him."
Jeff Salovski on his four assists and court vision:
"I have been working a lot in practice with being the flasher at the high post, since Viggiano is out, because normally that is his position. Today I was finding the right people at the right time. I had that one kick out to Anthony that was real key spot in the game. I have to keep on continuing to do that and help us win."
MHERST - One thing has become reasonably certain about the UMass basketball season to date: When the Minutemen win, it's always close and usually pulled out of the fire in the late going.
Last night's game at the Mullins Center followed the same pattern for 30 minutes before UMass created some distance from visiting Fordham. A 16-5 run pushed a one-point lead into double figures as the Minutemen put away the Rams, 76-63, in front of a crowd of 2,338.
For the first time this season, UMass (9-6, 3-2 Atlantic 10) followed a big win - Saturday's overtime decision at then-No. 21 George Washington - with a solid performance, and the Minutemen had Rashaun Freeman (game-high 26 points) and Anthony Anderson (23) to thank for it.
``I liked that we played well,'' UMass coach Steve Lappas said. ``Nine turnovers, we shot 54 percent, we outrebounded them, we got the ball inside. I thought our defense was just fair, but it was a very good offensive game.''
UMass led, 49-48, with 9:16 to go when Anderson connected on a fadeaway jumper from the left baseline, kicking off an 8-0 run. Fordham's Jermaine Anderson hit a 3-pointer as the Rams closed to within 59-53, but a trey by Anthony Anderson and an old-fashioned three-point play by Stephane Lasme made it 65-53 with 5:25 to go. With only three team fouls at that point, Fordham was forced to chase down the Minutemen.
One late sequence saw Anthony Anderson dribble through, and around, the offensive zone for 15 seconds before sinking a floater from the left baseline, putting UMass ahead, 71-60, with just 2:18 on the clock.
``Even though the history shows that after a big game, we don't play that well, we have the same approach every game,'' Anthony Anderson said. ``We think we're good, but we've still got to prove it.''
The Minutemen shot a season-best 54 percent from the field and 93 percent (13-of-14) at the foul line. Anthony Anderson hit all five of UMass' 3-pointers in 10 tries. Maurice Maxwell added 10 points for UMass and Freeman and Lasme each grabbed seven rebounds.
Freshman Marcus Stout scored 20 points to lead the Rams (6-10, 2-3), while Jermaine Anderson had 17 and Bryant Dunston added 13.
Fordham made three 3-pointers in the first 5:20 and used a 7-0 run to go in front, 16-9, but the Minutemen hit back with 12 straight points as the Rams went 0-for-7 with a pair of turnovers. Maxwell's layup on a 4-on-2 break completed the run and made it 21-16, and Freeman scored six in a row to give UMass its largest lead of the half, 29-20, with 4:19 left.
The Rams pulled back to within 31-29 before Freeman's two foul shots with 33 seconds to play gave UMass a four-point halftime edge.
Freeman's 18 first-half points (6-of-7 from the floor, 6-of-6 at the line) led everyone, while Stout and Dunston had 11 points apiece for Fordham at the break.
UMass shot an even 50 percent (12-of-24) to the Rams' 38 percent (10-for-26), but the Rams nailed six of their 14 3-pointers.
Kevin Anderson completed a 3-point play to put Fordham up 37-36 early in the second half, and the Rams nosed ahead, 43-40, before the teams began to seesaw.
MHERST -- A team starting four sophomores, the University of Massachusetts Minutemen have played with a certain playground style all year. They climb the ladder, then go down the slide. They spend many hours on the seesaw. The big wins have been followed by big losses.
After upsetting defending national champion Connecticut, then ranked No. 7, the Minutemen traveled to Miami and lost by 27. After upending a Xavier team that made it to the Elite Eight a year ago, UMass got pancaked by Saint Joseph's.
Thus, last night's game against an up-and-coming Fordham squad was a big test. The Minutemen were coming off a thrilling overtime win on the road against then-No. 21 George Washington, a win that actually garnered them four votes in this week's Associated Press poll. How would they respond?
This time, UMass stayed high, climbing across the monkey bars with an impressive 76-63 victory.
"Our guys came out with tremendous purpose and poise," said a clearly satisfied coach Steve Lappas, who watched his team improve to 9-6 (3-2 Atlantic 10).
The Minutemen got a pair of superb performances from their star players. Rashaun Freeman followed his 27-point, 15-rebound effort against GW with a 26-point, 7-board showing. He was efficient all night, hitting 9 of 13 from the field and 8 of 9 from the line.
Senior guard Anthony Anderson chipped in with 23 points, including 5 of 10 from 3-point land. Playing more shooting guard with the emergence of Chris Chadwick at the point, Anderson demonstrated an ability to penetrate that had been masked for most of his career. He complemented the long-range game with a series of acrobatic drives. In 39 minutes, he did not commit a turnover.
The Minutemen had one of their most thorough team efforts. They shot 53.7 percent from the field and assisted on 23 of 29 field goals, with four players pocketing at least four assists (including Jeff "Big Deli" Salovski). UMass also hit 13 of 14 free throws and outrebounded Fordham, 32-25.
"We know we aren't the best team," said Anderson. "We know we still have something to prove."
Fordham, easy pickings in years past, came in fresh off an upset of Xavier. The Rams, now 6-10, 2-3, feature the likely A-10 Rookie of the Year in Bryant Dunston, and another standout freshman in Marcus Stout, who led the Rams with 20 points.
For three-quarters of the game, the Rams hung tough. They trailed just 33-29 at the half, despite a blistering 18-point stanza for Freeman. In the second half, Fordham led by 2 at the 11:59 mark, before a 3-pointer by Anderson put UMass ahead to stay.
The Rams, purveyors of college basketball's first 3-point shots (in an experimental game against Columbia in February 1945), used the long ball to stay tight, hitting 10 of 22. Stout was 2 for 2 and Jermaine Anderson (17 points) was 3 for 4.
"We've still got a ways to go," said Fordham coach Dereck Whittenburg. "We've made some strides, but we're so far down. We're still practicing with walk-ons. But there's a lot of bright things in the future."
UMass's future involves a rematch with Saint Joe's at home on Saturday.
he University of Massachusetts men's basketball team followed a great win with a good one Wednesday.
Rashaun Freeman again led the Minutemen in scoring, with 26 points.
UMass coach Steve Lappas agreed.
''I thought we did respond well tonight,'' Lappas said. ''Our guys came out with a tremendous purpose and poise. ... It's a step. We'll see how well we respond Saturday.''
The Minutemen (9-6, 3-2 Atlantic 10) will host Saint Joseph's at noon on Saturday.
UMass led 33-29 at halftime. After Jermaine Anderson and Anthony Anderson traded 3-pointers coming out of intermission, the Rams scored five straight points to take the lead.
The teams swapped the advantage through the early part of the second half until Anthony Anderson buried a 3-pointer to give the Minutemen a 47-46 edge with 11 minutes, 32 seconds left. UMass didn't trail again.
After Jeff ''Big Deli'' Salovski and Mushon Ya'akosi both scored inside, UMass ran off a 10-2 spurt that put the game out of reach.
The margin of victory was the second largest for UMass this season. Freeman said it was nice to have some breathing room.
''As a team we're pretty tough at crunch time, but we don't want to play in close games,'' he said. ''I said at halftime that we had to pick it up a notch. I had a feeling that if they stuck with us, they would do something wacky at the end.''
Freeman dominated in the first half, scoring 18 of the Minutemen's 29 points en route to a 26-point night.
''We gave him too much early on,'' Fordham coach Dereck Whittenburg said. ''We made it too easy.''
The Rams gave Freeman more defensive attention in the second half, allowing the rest of the Minutemen extra room to operate. Senior guard Anthony Anderson scored 18 of his 23 points in the second half as he knocked down five 3-pointers.
''I was pleased with our offense in general,'' Lappas said. ''We had a very good offensive game.''
Freshman Marcus Stout led Fordham with 20 points and six assists, while Jermaine Anderson added 17 and Bryant Dunston had 13.
UMass and Fordham play again Feb. 12 in the Bronx.
Lappas said Fordham's improvement from recent years is apparent. ''When we go there it's going to be a tough game. I don't even want to think about it,'' Lappas said. Dunston and Stout ''are two kids who are on their way to being as good as anybody in this league... There's no doubt they're on their way.''

fter the University of Massachusetts lost to Saint Joseph's last week, Minuteman coach Steve Lappas said Anthony Anderson needed to look for his offense more. He found it on Wednesday. The senior guard was effective driving to the basket as well as shooting from outside while scoring a season-high 23 points as UMass beat Fordham 76-63.
Anthony Anderson had a big game with 23 points.
''Coach (Steve Lappas) has been on me about being more aggressive. I've been doing it in practice. Tonight I played like I practice,'' Anderson said.
He attempted a career-high 17 shots and made nine of them, including five 3-pointers. But more noteworthy was his slashing. Anderson scored in the lane more often than he has all season. He scored on running one-handed floaters not seen in Amherst since Charlton Clarke graduated in 1999.
''We've been talking to Anthony about driving more and playing more as a two guard and having a little more freedom,'' Lappas said. ''We want him to be more aggressive.''
The performance moved Anderson up on the school's scoring chart. He now has 1,144 career points leaping over Mike Williams into 26th place. Will Herndon and Lari Ketner are tied at No. 24 with 1,148.
ANDERSONS - Players named Anderson accounted for almost a third of the game's scoring (44 out of 139 points, 31.6 percent) as Jermaine Anderson (17) and Kevin Anderson (four) played for Fordham.
None of the three are related.
NOTEWORTHY START - The Minutemen's 9-6 start is the best for a UMass team since the 1997-98 season.
DOUBLE 20s - The Minutemen had two players score 20 points in back-to-back games for the first time since 1999 when Chris Kirkland and Monty Mack did it at George Washington and at home against Xavier.
GABE LEE RESURFACES - Former UMass big man Gabe Lee played his first game Saturday for Division II Albany State.
He had six points, four rebounds and three blocks in 31 minutes in his debut.
NEXT UP - The rematch with Saint Joseph's is at noon Saturday at the Mullins Center. The Hawks beat the Minutemen 59-52 on Jan. 12.
St. Joseph's lost its first conference game of the season Wednesday, falling at Dayton 58-54.
It snapped the Hawks' 21-game regular-season conference winning streak and knocked them out of first place in the Atlantic 10 East for the first time in over three years. They are behind Temple (3-0).
PASSING - The Minutemen had 23 assists on 29 baskets led by five assists and no turnovers by sophomore Artie Bowers. Freshman Jeff ''Big Deli'' Salovski and sophomore Stephane Lasme each had a career-high four assists.
UMass had just nine turnovers and only three in the second half.
VIGGIANO IN STREET CLOTHES - UMass had hoped junior forward Jeff Viggiano's injured ankle would be healed enough so he could at least dress for the game, but he had a mild setback after working out Tuesday.
''It's day to day at this point. It depends on how he comes back'' Thursday, Lappas said.
He said Viggiano's return would not upset the rotation.
''He adds to our chemistry. When he was running on the sideline in practice, Rashaun Freeman yelled 'The glue is coming back,' '' Lappas said. ''There isn't anybody on the team that doesn't look at Jeff Viggiano as anything but the ultimate team player.''
