UMass battles in Seattle
By Matt Vautour, Daily Hampshire Gazette Staff Writer, 12/4/2004

SEATTLE - There are no shortage of opportunities for the University of Massachusetts men's basketball team at the end of its 3,000-mile trip west. Saturday's 4 p.m. game against Gonzaga in Seattle will give the Minutemen (2-1) a chance to not only eliminate the bad taste lingering from Wednesday's 84-68 loss to Northeastern, but also to deliver the program's best win in recent years.

The game is the 2004 Battle in Seattle in Key Arena, the home of the NBA's Supersonics. Gonzaga annually plays one program with a national profile across the state from its Spokane home. UMass slid into this game after Maryland withdrew.

It's a chance for Minuteman junior big man Rashaun Freeman to add to his growing reputation, as he'll battle Ronny Turiaf of Gonzaga.

Had Turiaf, a 6-foot-10 native of Martinique, come out early for the NBA Draft last year, most experts had him going in the first round and some even had predicted him being a lottery pick. But he opted to return to Gonzaga for one more season. He's averaging 25.6 points and 10.0 rebounds so far.

Freeman knows he will have his hands full. ''He's probably the most powerful big man I'm going to be going up against this year,'' said Freeman, who is averaging 17 points and 7.7 rebounds himself. ''He's a very powerful player. I have to hold my own defensively against him or he's going to take over. I'm going to have to let my defense lead to my offense.''

Turiaf admitted Friday afternoon that he didn't know much about Freeman because the Zags hadn't yet watched videotape of UMass.

''I know he goes over his right shoulder a lot, other than that I don't know,'' Turiaf said. ''He's a really good inside presence for them. We're going to have to go right at him.''

Gonzaga coach Mark Few is well aware of Freeman.

''I think he's going to be a really tough matchup for us,'' Few said. ''He can really score. He's strong and sometimes those lefties have a half-step advantage 'cause you're not used to facing them. I see a really good player who is going to be a handful for us.''

Gonzaga figures to be a handful for the Minutemen. The Bulldogs arrive at 4-1 coming off Wednesday's upset of No. 14 Washington. Their only loss came against Illinois, which blasted No. 1 Wake Forest this week.

Gonzaga has been successful this season with a young group after several key members of last year's team graduated. Sophomore Adam Morrison has emerged as the team's best perimeter player. He's averaging 19.6 points and 6.6 rebounds.

In a lot of ways the Bulldogs' success mirrors that of the mid-1990s Minutemen. Playing outside the big six power conferences, Gonzaga has scheduled an aggressive nonconference slate earning it several TV appearances.

''We've done it much like UMass did,'' said Few, whose 137-33 career record is the second best in NCAA history. ''We've had a run of great kids and great players. I've been able to keep my staff intact, which has been great for continuity.''

NOTES: The game will pit a pair of former teammates against each other. Pierre Marie Altidor- Cespedes of Gonzaga played at Champlain St. Lambert in Montreal with UMass freshman Olivier Lamoureux.

Battle in Seattle
Minutemen to take on Gonzaga
By Mike Marzelli, The Daily Collegian Staff, 12/3/2004

After suffering another painful, early-season loss to a mid-major opponent - something that has become a staple of head coach Steve Lappas' four-year tenure - the Massachusetts men's basketball team will make the cross-country flight to Seattle, Wash., where it will face No. 25 Gonzaga in "The Battle in Seattle" on Saturday. Tip-off is slated for 4 p.m. Eastern Time at Key Arena, with the game being broadcast locally on College Sports Television.

Reeling after finishing an 84-68 loss to Northeastern with just one point over the final six-plus minutes Wednesday night, UMass will look to ignite a sputtering offense that has featured poor shooting performances from sophomore guards Maurice Maxwell and Art Bowers among others, and a lack of consistency from buzzer to buzzer.

Such troubles come at an inopportune time for the Minutemen, as the match up with the Zags will begin their most difficult stretch of the season. Following their departure from Seattle, the Minutemen will host defending national champion Connecticut on Thursday at the Mullins Center, followed by a trip to south Florida to take on Atlantic Coast Conference newcomer Miami.

With that in mind, Lappas knows the need for a quick fix to his team's offensive woes must be addressed immediately.

"I'm not sure what's wrong with us offensively," Lappas said following the loss to the Huskies. "We've done a lot of good things at times, but we've kind of fell into a lull during some stretches where we're not moving around like we need to and not knocking down open shots."

One player who has produced the offensive success that was expected of him has been sophomore forward Rashaun Freeman. A leading candidate for Atlantic 10 Player of the Year, Freeman scored a team-high 18 points and grabbed 11 rebounds against NU, but will face arguably his toughest test of the season against Gonzaga (4-1) and All-American center Ronny Turiaf.

Averaging 25.6 points per game and 10 rebounds per contest, Turiaf ranks fourth in the nation in scoring and has established himself as one of the premier big men in the country. At 6-foot-10, he will provide a larger-than-life challenge for Freeman and the Minutemen, something Lappas is keenly aware of.

"The difference between Turiaf and Ray is that Turiaf is a bona-fide NBA center," Lappas said at Wednesday's Alumni Association sports luncheon. "He has the potential to be a lottery pick in the NBA Draft, and he is an imposing force down low.

"It's going to be a great challenge for Ray and our team and something we're going to have to address if we hope to win the game."

Also providing a major contribution offensively for Gonzaga is sophomore Adam Morrison, who averages 19.6 points per game and 6.6 rebounds per game from his forward position. More importantly, however, is that Morrison gives the Bulldogs a legitimate second option who can score consistently - something UMass has lacked at times in its first three games.

"They are a solid offensive team," Lappas said. "They can beat you with more than just Turiaf, and we need to be prepared to play solid defense and deny them open looks. If we can do that, then we can work to establish our tempo and control the pace of the game."

The game will mark the first meeting between UMass and Gonzaga and will also be the first time a UMass team has played a team from the state of Washington, as well as the first time it will play in the state. Over the last few years, Gonzaga has garnered much national attention as it rose from mid-major status to a perennial NCAA contender.

The Bulldogs were ranked for all of 2003-04, and finished the season third overall and as a No. 2 seed in the NCAA tournament. The game is the first of a three-year deal, which will bring the Zags to the Mullins Center next season, and send the Minutemen to the Gonzaga campus in Spokane, Wash. in 2006-07.


UMass looks for Gonzaga weakness
By Steve Bergum, The Seattle Post-Intelligencer / The Spokesman-Review, 12/4/2004

Opposing coaches keep looking at the video of Gonzaga's lopsided loss to Illinois in last Saturday's Wooden Tradition in Indianapolis, hoping to scrape together some ideas on how to deal with the Bulldogs.

It just doesn't work.

Washington's Lorenzo Romar had barely gotten past the opening credits when he shut down the DVD player, proclaiming, "That's not the Gonzaga team we're going to see."

As it turns out, Romar was right. The Bulldogs who put a 99-87 bump on the collective heads of his the No. 14 Huskies in Spokane on Wednesday in no way resembled the frantic, scattered Zags who were humiliated by the Illini.

Now comes Steve Lappas, who brings Massachusetts (2-1) into KeyArena for today's 1 p.m. showdown against GU (4-1) in the second annual Battle in Seattle.

Lappas, too, took a quick look at the Zags' loss to Illinois and declared the video worthless.

"That's doesn't help us at all," he said, "because we're not Illinois."

Which gives the Bulldogs reason for optimism heading into today's game against the Minutemen, who are coming off an 84-68 loss at home to Northeastern.

No, this is not the Marcus Camby-led UMass of the past. And Lappas seems comfortable praising the virtues of Gonzaga in his role as coach of the underdog.

"They're so physical, so tough, and they get after the glass as hard as any team in the country," Lappas said of Gonzaga, which beat Missouri 87-80 in overtime in last year's inaugural Battle in Seattle.

Lappas seemed particularly impressed with Gonzaga's Ronny Turiaf (25.6 points, 10 rebounds per game).

"He's just tremendous," Lappas said of the 6-foot-10 forward. "You can't guard him one-on-one, because he's able to turn over both shoulders and score on just about anyone. The kid is probably a (NBA) lottery pick."

Lappas has a couple of big-time players of his own in center Rashaun Freeman, a 6-9 sophomore who is averaging 17 points and 7.7 rebounds -- both team highs -- and senior guard Anthony Anderson, who is averaging 12.3 points, 3.7 assists and 3.3 steals.

Gonzaga could benefit from the return of junior shooting guard Erroll Knight, the former Chief Sealth High School star who missed the Bulldogs' first five games because of a sprained thumb.


Gonzaga 68, Massachusetts 57
From The Associated Press, 12/4/2004

SEATTLE - Adam Morrison scored 12 of his 20 points in the second half and Ronny Turiaf finished with 19 points and 14 rebounds, leading Gonzaga to a 68-57 win over Massachusetts on Saturday.

J.P. Batista added 10 points for the Bulldogs (5-1), who came back strong from last weekend's embarrassing 89-72 loss to No. 5 Illinois. Since then, Gonzaga beat No. 14 Washington 99-87 and held off the Minutemen (2-2).

The Zags dominated the first half, but UMass -- a preseason favorite in the Atlantic 10 -- rallied to tie it at 40 with 10:50 remaining. Gonzaga outscored UMass 23-4 over an 8-minute span of the final 9 1/2 minutes.

Maurice Maxwell led the Minutemen with 19 points while Anthony Anderson scored 14.

The Bulldogs dominated the first half and led 33-20 at the break, but everything changed when the Minutemen tightened their defense in the second half and charged back behind Maxwell's shooting.

Maxwell and Rashaun Freeman each had six points in a 15-3 run, and Maxwell hit a 3-pointer that pulled UMass to 40-38 with 12 minutes remaining. It was anybody's game one minute later when Stephane Lasme tied it at 40 with two free throws.

Turiaf scored nine of Gonzaga's next 12 points, but the Zags trailed 47-45 with 8:50 remaining after Lawrence Carrier's 3-pointer. Morrison made a 3-pointer for Gonzaga, igniting a 13-2 run that swung the lead to the Bulldogs for good.

The Minutemen couldn't keep up down the stretch, especially after Freeman fouled out with 3:42 to play and Lasme followed him with 2:31 to go.

UMass led 13-8 midway through the first half, but there were early signs of trouble. Coach Steve Lappas worked the officials at full-throttle from the tip, but that couldn't offset his team's 14 first-half turnovers.

UMass committed 10 turnovers in the game's first 9 1/2 minutes, just when Gonzaga used a 15-0 burst over a 7 1/2 -minute span to break away.

Batista scored the first three baskets in that run, and Turiaf capped it with an alley-oop dunk. That gave the Zags a 23-13 lead and brought fans from Gonzaga's ``Kennel Club'' were on their feet, barking at top volume.

For the second straight year, the Bulldogs made the cross-state trip to play a regular-season game in Seattle and perform for their fans on the west side of the Cascade Range.


Game Notes
From UMass Athletics, 12/4/2004

UMass came back from a deficit as large as 17 (37-20) with 19:09 left in the second half, to tie the game at 40-40 with 10:50 left in the second half. In the 20-3 run, Maurice Maxwell and Rashaun Freeman combined for 16 points. UMass took a lead at 47-45 as Lawrence Carrier made a three-pointer with 8:46 left in the game, it was the Minutemen's last lead.

Senior guard Anthony Anderson moved to 29th in career scoring with 14 points, giving him 1058 for his career. He passed Alex Eldridge (1053) in the game. Anderson also stands alone at ninth in career assists with 324, as he broke a tie with current Boston College coach Al Skinner (320).

Sophomore Maurice Maxwell tied his career-high 19 points as he scored in double-figures for the third time this season and 14th time in his career.

Sophomore Rashaun Freeman hit all of his four shots from the floor and finished with nine points before fouling out with 3:42 left in the game. For the season, Freeman is shooting 57.1 percent.

UMass held All-American center Ronny Turiaf in check for the first half, as he scored just eight points, he did not have a field goal for the first 13 minutes of the half, missing his first five shots before a dunk with 7:01 left in the first. Turiaf finished with 19 points, but missed five free throws, coming into the game, he was 42-of-47 (five misses). Turiaf also had 14 rebounds.

UMass can't catch Zags
By George Miller, The Boston Herald, 12/5/2004

SEATTLE - All the good work UMass put in to wipe out a 17-point second-half deficit yesterday evaporated in the final eight minutes. But the Minutemen will look upon their cross-country road trip as a gutsy effort against one of the nation's most accomplished teams.

Gonzaga answered a 27-8 UMass run with a 23-4 stretch of its own, and the Bulldogs, lurking just outside the Top 25, made the battle in Seattle their own with a 68-57 victory before 10,126 at Key Arena.

``I'm proud of the effort we gave, but obviously we didn't do enough,'' UMass coach Steve Lappas said. ``We ran out of gas in the end. Their physical size makes it difficult, and the foul trouble hurt us. We battled as hard as we could, but they wore us down.''

UMass, which has now dropped 25 of its last 30 games away from the Mullins Center, trailed 37-20 less than a minute into the second half, but struck back with a pair of 10-0 spurts. Art Bowers scored on a driving runner in the lane to give the Minutemen a 44-43 lead with 9:21 left.

Big man Ronny Turiaf (19 points, 14 rebounds) put back an offensive rebound for Gonzaga, but UMass' Lawrence Carrier drained a 3-pointer from the top of the circle to make it 47-45 at the 8:52 mark.

UMass was in for a rough ride from there on, with Rashaun Freeman already on the bench with four fouls and Stephane Lasme picking up his third and fourth in rapid succession. Adam Morrison (game-high 20 points, nine boards) stuck a 3-pointer to give the Bulldogs the lead for good, Turiaf made four free throws, and after a layup by UMass' Maurice Maxwell, Gonzaga rattled off 11 consecutive points, including seven by Morrison.

``We should have made them work a little bit harder,'' said Maxwell, who led UMass with 19 points. ``We didn't give them a sense that they were going to lose the game. We didn't stick it to them, and they came right back down and took the lead.''

Turiaf, who eventually fouled both Freeman and Lasme out of the game, made only 4-of-10 shots from the floor but cleaned up at the line, where he was 11-for-16. The Bulldogs, who shot 39 percent from the field to UMass' 43 percent, owned a 37-27 advantage on the glass.

UMass grabbed an early 13-8 lead behind two 3-pointers by Maxwell and one by Anthony Anderson (14 points), but then went stone-cold over the next 7 minutes, missing seven shots and committing five turnovers while the Bulldogs ran off 15 straight points.

J.P. Batista came off the Gonzaga bench for three inside baskets and Turiaf's alley-oop dunk made it 23-13, before Anderson stopped the bleeding with a trey of his own. Freeman took his only shot of the first half with a minute left and made it for his only points, and the Bulldogs got their lead up to 13 by the half, 33-20.


Zags regroup, finally pull away
By Bud Withers, The Seattle Times College Basketball Reporter, 12/5/2004

Bidding goodbye to Massachusetts basketball coach Steve Lappas in a lower hallway at KeyArena yesterday, Gonzaga's Mark Few paid his respects.

"You had a good game plan," Few told Lappas. "I think you guys are going to be real good."

Responded Lappas, "You guys already are."

Either of those observations could be debated, but this can't: In the annual Battle of Seattle in front of 10,126, the Zags toughed out a 68-57 victory, their fifth in six starts this year.

Owing partly to 37 fouls and UMass' determination to keep the ball out of Ronny Turiaf's hands in the post, it wasn't especially artistic. But aesthetics take a back seat to the bottom line when you're playing a rugged nonleague schedule dotted with Illinois, Washington, Georgia Tech and Oklahoma State, as is Gonzaga.

"You're not going to be able to play perfectly," said Few. "You've got to be able to win the grinders.

"So we won a game that wasn't so pretty. This was a test of toughness."

Three days after an important victory over Washington, the Zags passed, because they collected themselves after blowing all of a 17-point second half lead. They were in complete control with a 37-20 lead but coughed it up when UMass (2-2) put together a 24-6 run to take a 44-43 advantage.

The Minutemen had one more lead, 47-45 with 8:53 left, before Adam Morrison connected on a three to give the Zags the lead for good, a basket that started a 23-4 Gonzaga run that put it away.

For the third straight game, the double-down defensive concentration on Turiaf limited him; he had only 10 field-goal attempts, giving him just 29 in that stretch. When Gonzaga got in trouble early in the second half, it was because the Zags didn't react well to that sag, while UMass was beating GU's half-court man-to-man pressure at the other end.

"It's really frustrating," said Turiaf. "It's like I can't play my game. I'm trying not to force anything, trying to get my teammates involved."

The teammate who was key was the 6-8 Morrison, who had 20 points and nine rebounds, giving him 72 points and 28 rebounds in his last three games.

At times, Morrison struggled to get his shots to fall he was 7 of 18 and Few thought it might have been due to Morrison's self-regulation of his blood sugar. He is a Type 1 diabetic who administers his injections during timeouts.

"I can't back that up with numbers," said Few. "I can tell by the look on his face.

"Some days it's hard to control. That's why that disease is so tough. That's why he's so tough."

Said Morrison, "My sugar was a little high. I just didn't feel right. It's tough to get your body where it feels good. But I still got a lot of open looks."

Down the stretch, it was a three-man show for the Zags Morrison, Turiaf and JC transfer Joao Paul Batista, a 6-9, 270-pound Brazilian banger with a touch around the basket and an intuitive sense. Batista had 10 points in 19 minutes.

"He was great," Few said. "He's got a lot better feel for the game than people think."

Turiaf finished with 19 points and 14 rebounds despite the continuing defensive attention.

"What we need to get better at (offensively) is, throwing it in, throwing it out and re-posting," Few said. "We're so offensively aggressive sometimes, we don't wait for that last pass."

Sealth grad Erroll Knight played his first game of the season after a sprained thumb sidelined him. He scored only two points in 17 minutes but the Zags welcomed his defensive energy.

Gonzaga point guard Derek Raivio knocked in 3 of 4 three-point attempts, making him 16 of 28 this year (.571). All of it combined to give the Zags, who visit Washington State on Tuesday night, a better feeling about the Key than last March, when they were routed from the NCAA tournament by Nevada.


UMass runs out of gas
By Matt Vautour, Daily Hampshire Gazette Staff Writer, 12/6/2004

SEATTLE - For a while Saturday it looked like the University of Massachusetts men's basketball team might pull off something memorable. Trailing by as many at 17 points early in the second half on the road against a Gonzaga team that will likely be ranked nationally in today's poll, the Minutemen erased the big deficit and even led briefly.

But UMass (2-2) ran out of gas and bodies and fell 68-57 to the Bulldogs (5-1) in front of 10,126 fans at Key Arena. With Rashaun Freeman and Stephane Lasme in foul trouble, Gonzaga big man Ronny Turiaf dominated inside with 19 points (including 11 of 16 free throws) and a career-high 14 rebounds.

The Minutemen return home to host No. 7 Connecticut at 9 p.m. Thursday.

''I'm proud of the effort we gave,'' UMass coach Steve Lappas said. ''Obviously we didn't do enough - In the second half we were much more solid, which made me feel better. But the turnovers hurt us and their size made it more difficult.

''I thought our guys did a great job in a tough situation to come back on the road,'' Lappas added. ''The foul trouble hurt us. Their size wore us down. There's no doubt. We battled as hard as we could.''

Gonzaga led 33-20 at halftime and baskets by Sean Mallon and Adam Morrison increased its advantage to 37-20 less than a minute into the second half. Sparked by Freeman and Maurice Maxwell (team-high 19 points) the Minutemen scored the next 10 points to make it 37-30. Derek Raivio briefly stopped that run with a 3-pointer from the corner, but UMass again scored 10 straight points to tie the game at 40-40.

Turiaf brought the crowd back into the game by finishing an alley-oop pass from Adam Morrison (20 points). Turiaf induced Freeman's fourth foul 32 seconds later.

Turiaf made one free throw after a subsequent foul by Lawrence Carrier to push the lead back to 43-40. Anthony Anderson (14 points) made two free throws and Artie Bowers sank a mid-range jumper to give the Minutemen their first advantage since the first half at 44-43.

Turiaf answered with a tip-in, but Carrier's top-of-the-key 3-pointer gave the Minutemen a 47-45 lead with just under nine minutes left.

After Morrison made a three over the Minutemen zone, Lasme was called for his third foul fighting for the rebound off his own missed shot. Fourteen seconds later, Lasme picked up his fourth foul against Turiaf at the other end.

''The fouls hurt us,'' Lappas said. ''With their size, we needed (Freeman and Lasme) in the game.''

But with Freeman and Lasme both out, the Minuteman defense suffered. Gonzaga put together an 8-2 run that proved to be a knockout blow.

''We never gave them the sense that they were going to lose the game,'' Maxwell said. ''We didn't stick it to them enough so they thought they were going to lose the game. We were down and we got up, but we couldn't finish it off.''

Freeman said the Minutemen can build off the game. ''For the most part we battled. We proved to ourselves we could come on the road and play with a tough team.''

Bowers' shooting woes continue
By Matt Vautour, Daily Hampshire Gazette Staff Writer, 12/6/2004

SEATTLE - After watching sophomore guard Artie Bowers struggle from the floor again Saturday, University of Massachusetts coach Steve Lappas expressed concern after the Minutemen's 68-57 loss to Gonzaga. He's an important part of our team, Lappas said. ''I'm concerned. There's no doubt.''

Bowers shot 3-for-12 Saturday, bringing him to 12-for-47 (25.5 percent) for the season. He's 1-for-20 (5 percent) from 3-point range. The numbers are down from last year when Bowers shot 33.3 percent (90-for-270) and 36.1 percent from long range (35-for-97).

''As time goes on it gets a little bothersome for him, so he's aiming it a little and he's not getting the great rotation that he had,'' Lappas said. ''These are things he can work on, but it's hard because it snowballs.''

CONTAINING FREEMAN - Gonzaga held UMass big man Rashaun Freeman under 10 points for just the sixth time in his career, snapping an eight-game streak with 10 or more points. Against the Bulldogs' double team, Freeman didn't attempt a field goal until the final minute of the first half.

He finished with nine points and six rebounds. He had a game-high six turnovers including four traveling violations (three in the first half).

''I was so amped up to play that I rushed a couple of my moves and when I did, I traveled,'' Freeman said. ''In the second half, I slowed down and I was able to make some shots.

INJURIES - Freshman Olivier Lamoureux, who has yet to play this season, didn't dress for the game with a left ankle injury. Maurice Maxwell suffered a first-half cramp and was in and out of the lineup tending to it.

FREE THROWS - UMass missed its first five free throws of the game and then made its next seven. Anthony Anderson hadn't attempted one this season until Saturday, and made both.

ROAD WOES - The Minutemen have now lost six straight outside the Mullins Center and are 5-25 in their last 30 away from home. UMass is 10-11 in NBA arenas in the past 10 seasons and has lost six consecutive games in pro buildings.

NEXT UP - No. 7 Connecticut defeated Indiana 74-69 Saturday behind 17 points by Rashad Anderson as the Huskies remained unbeaten.

UConn hosts Northeastern at 7:30 p.m. Monday before traveling to UMass for a 9 p.m. game Thursday.

MISCELLANEOUS - Referee Mike Partlow pulled a hamstring with 14 minutes, 32 seconds left in the second half. The game was completed with just two officials.

There were more fans at this game (10,126) than in the first three UMass games combined (9,476).

Stephane Lasme and Freeman each fouled out for the second time this season.

After attending an UMass alumni function before the game, Lappas was stopped at the door of the arena. ''I stopped in at an alumni function and I paid the cab to wait for me outside so they could take me back to the hotel so I could ride the team bus,'' said Lappas, laughing. ''But I came out and the cab was gone. So I walked to the arena in the rain.''

When he got in the arena, Lappas didn't have identification. A police officer had to accompany him to the court to be identified.

Bulldogs tame Freeman, knock off Minutemen
By Mike Marzelli, The Daily Collegian Staff, 12/6/2004

The Massachusetts men's basketball team proved that it was game for a challenge in giving heavily favored Gonzaga all it could handle Saturday afternoon, but in the end it was not enough.

Having grabbed an early lead in the annual "Battle In Seattle" contest, the Minutemen watched the Bulldogs storm back to take a 17-point lead early in the second half before battling all the way back to tie the game at 40. From there it was all Zags, however, as 12 second half points from Adam Morrison and Ronny Turiaf's 19 points and 14 boards led coach Mark Few's team past UMass 68-57 before 10,126 at Key Arena in Seattle, Wash.

Sophomore guard Maurice Maxwell led the Minutemen with 19 points while senior captain Anthony Anderson added 14 points and four assists. Sophomore forward Rashaun Freeman, who attracted double teams all afternoon and struggled to find an offensive rhythm, scored nine points and grabbed six rebounds in 27 minutes before fouling out midway through the second half.

Sophomore guard Art Bowers continued to struggle mightily on the offensive end for UMass after scoring six points on 3-of-12 shooting, including 0-of-5 from 3-point range. Classmate Stephane Lasme played a strong defensive game for the Maroon and White, posting four blocks while defending Turiaf over 34 minutes.

UMass returns to action on Thursday night when it will host archrival and defending national champion Connecticut at the Mullins Center. Tip-off is slated for 9 p.m., and the game will be broadcast live on ESPN2.

Morrison led all scorers with 20 points, despite 1-of-5 shooting from beyond the arc. Turiaf, meanwhile, overcame a slow start to come on strong in the second half, getting the majority of his production from an 11-for-16 showing from the free throw line.

J.P. Batista was the only other player in double-figures as he had 10 points for the Bulldogs to go alone with nine points and four steals from point guard Derek Raivio.

The Minutemen appeared to be out of the game early in the second half after falling down by 17 but stormed back with a stunning 24-6 run that erased the advantage. A Maxwell 3-pointer with 12 minutes remaining brought UMass within a basket at 40-38, before Lasme tied the game with a pair of free throws just under a minute later.

After the team's traded hoops on the next few possessions, a Bowers basket gave the Minutemen a slim 44-43 lead before a Lawrence Carrier 3-pointer pushed UMass out in front by a score of 47-45 with 8:50 to play.

Gonazaga answered immediately with a 3-pointer of its own from Morrison, before the Bulldogs took off on a 13-2 burst that was part of a 23-4 run, giving them control of the game for good.

With both Freeman and Lasme fouling out of the game down the stretch, UMass was no longer able to contain Turiaf, who scored nine points during Gonzaga's second half run and keyed the Zags success on offense during the streak.

The Maroon and White got off to a promising start in the opening minutes of the game, staking itself to a 13-8 lead before turnovers and a lack of offense keyed a 15-0 Gonzaga run that gave control of the game to the Zags. The Minutemen turned the ball over 14 times in the first half, including 10 times in the first nine minutes.
