Freeman & Life Leads UMass Past Northeastern, 79-56
Center has 24 points and 10 rebounds, guard adds 19 points
From UMass Athletics, 11/19/2006

PITTSBURGH - The inside-outside combination of seniors Rashaun Freeman and James Life proved to be lethal all afternoon as UMass beat the Huskies, 79-56 in the Minutemen's final game of the three-game Colonial Classic at Pittsburgh. Freeman finished with 24 points and 10 rebounds while Life had 19 points. UMass moved to 3-1 overall while the Huskies remain winless at 0-4.

UMass busted open the game in the second half. The Minutemen, who play 10 players in their normal rotation simply outmanned the Huskies, who had just seven scholarship players dressed. In the second half, Freeman and Life combined for 23 of UMass' 43 points. Gary Forbes also heated up as he tallied seven of his 13 in the game.

Northeastern shot just 18 percent (5-of-28) in the second half as UMass played great defense. The Huskies went 9:25 without a field goal midway through the second half. The Minutemen hit the glass hard. After Northeastern grabbed 15 of the game's first 25 rebounds, UMass corralled 35 of the next 55 and finished with a +10 rebound margin. Stephane Lasme grabbed 11 rebounds to give him 34 in the tournament.

The second half opened with the Minutemen pounding the ball inside to Freeman as UMass had an 18-4 run bridging the halves to take a lead as large as 46-33 with 17:05 left in the game. The senior had eight of the 18 points in the run.

UMass scored eight of the final 11 points of the half and held Northeastern without a basket 6:49 late in the half before Matt Janning made a 3-pointer with 1:10 left in the stanza making it 36-32 at intermission.

The Minutemen took the lead at 30-29 on a Freeman lay-up with 3:36 left in the first. UMass slowly chipped away at the Huskies and tied the game at 28-28 on a James Life 3-pointer as the shot clock expired with 4:28 in the half.

The Huskies continued their hot shooting in the first half as they took a 26-19 lead with 8:01 left after making three straight 3-pointers. The Huskies made five of their first eight treys in the game.

Northeastern jumped out early to a 14-8 lead just 4:35 into the game as Matt Janning canned two 3-pointers and eight total points early.


UMass downs Huskies
By Matt Vautour, Daily Hampshire Gazette Staff Writer, 11/20/2006

PITTSBURGH - University of Massachusetts coach Travis Ford was happy with the result, the score and his team's effort in its 79-56 win over Northeastern Sunday in the final game of the Colonial Classic.

But turnovers, a big Minuteman problem last year, have continued to come at an abundant rate so far this season. Ford was concerned after UMass (3-1) committed 19 more against the Huskies.

"I like our effort. But in order for us to get to where we want to be, we have to stop turning the ball over," Ford said. "Our effort is winning us basketball games. If we could add execution to that, we could start reaching our potential. A lot of the turnovers have come when we've had the lead a little bit, but that's no excuse. I don't want to pick up bad habits. They're really getting us on the carrying calls. There's no drills you can do. We'll show them film and show them individually."

Ford said it's not an easy problem to fix, but he is confident that UMass would get better at protecting the ball.

"We have to cut it out because you can't win like that," he said. "It's not easy to stop. But we will not stop talking about it. As time goes on, these guys will get better. I'm concerned about it, but I think there's still progress to be made."

UMass returns to action at 7 p.m. Wednesday when it hosts St. Francis (N.Y.).

Ford was still figuring out his point guard rotation, which may figure into the problem. Freshman Tiki Mayben had an uneven three days in Pittsburgh, capped by Sunday's five points, six assists and four turnovers. He also has struggled defensively.

Chris Lowe threw the ball away five times with just two assists against Northeastern, but has defended much better than Mayben so far.

"It's kind of frustrating, but I think it will come together," Mayben said.

After Saturday's physically draining loss to Pittsburgh, Ford said he expected the Minutemen to come out of the gate slowly Sunday and they did. Northeastern (0-4) led 27-19 with just under eight minutes left in the first half, but UMass came to life shortly after that, scoring 17 of the next 19 points. A late 3-pointer by Matt Janning of the Huskies left UMass ahead 36-32 at halftime.

"I knew we'd be sluggish. I was just hoping Northeastern would be too and they were not," Ford said. "I thought we would come out of it and I wanted to be patient with them. We hit that spurt at the end of the first half, which was the difference in the game. That was big for our mental state of mind."

The Minutemen opened the second half on a 10-1 run that stretched to 26-9 and put the game away.

"I think in the second half we really came together and focused," senior big man Rashaun Freeman said. "I'm proud about that. I think this win will give us some confidence that will have a snowball effect."

The UMass turnaround coincided with its reversing Northeastern's early edge on the boards. Stephane Lasme was quiet offensively with seven points, but had a game-high 11 rebounds and three blocked shots.

Freed from the foul trouble that blunted his effectiveness against Pitt, Freeman had 24 points and 10 rebounds. James Life continued his impressive offense with 19 points on 7-for-11 shooting.

Janning had 19 for Northeastern, and Bennett Davis added 18.

"I told our guys this was a test of who you are inside coming back quickly after a tough loss," Ford said. We're tired, the other team is tired, let's see who steps up and play. I was glad to see them wake themselves up and go from being down to winning the game pretty easily."


Life's shooting ignites UMass
By Matt Vautour, Daily Hampshire Gazette Staff Writer, 11/20/2006

PITTSBURGH - Late in the first half Saturday with the University of Massachusetts trailing 28-25, the Minutemen struggled to get a shot as Northeastern pressured on the perimeter and did a good job denying the entry pass to the post.

The Huskies deflected a pass out of bounds, forcing UMass to inbound with just two seconds left on the shot clock. Chris Lowe found James Life at the top of the key.

Without hesitating, Life fired and the shot dropped in to tie the game. The play highlighted the 17-2 game-turning run for the Minutemen who rebounded to win easily.

"I thought that was the biggest shot of the game," UMass coach Travis Ford said. "We needed that to get on a roll."

A year ago, Life was up-and-down in his first season in Amherst, averaging 11.3 points per game. His play was hard to predict as he struggled to find his role on the team.

But Sunday, Life had 19 points for the Minutemen, his best total in a strong start to this season. He's averaging 16.5 points per game, and has shot 66 percent (22-for-33) from the field, an almost amazing clip considering most of his shots have come a considerable distance from the basket.

"Last year was a learning year, getting used to the Division I level and Coach Ford and our teammates," Life said. "Just having a year of experience under my belt has helped a lot. I've been working hard trying to understand the game a little more and understand my role. Our team has been real unselfish. We understand to make the extra pass. I've been open and they've been looking for me and putting me in good situations to take good shots."

Ford said when Life is making shots, he mostly leaves him alone.

"He's doing good," Ford said. "I kind of like to let him do his thing."

FREE THROWS - The Minutemen, who have struggled from the free-throw line, made eight of 10 in the first half Sunday. They faltered in the second half, making just eight of 14.

FOUR-FOR-FOUR - Virginia transfer Gary Forbes had 13 points for UMass Sunday. He's been in double figures all four games of his Minuteman career and is averaging 11.7 points. Rashaun Freeman and Life also have been in double figures in each of the first four games.

BLACK UNIFORMS - In Saturday's 85-68 loss to Pittsburgh, the Minutemen wore black uniforms for the first time since last season. UMass is 1-2 in regular-season games when wearing black.

NEXT UP - The Minutemen return home Wednesday for a 7 p.m. game against St. Francis of New York. The Terriers are 0-4.

MISCELLANEOUS - Life and Stephane Lasme were named to the all-tournament team. ... Freshman Ricky Harris, who didn't play against Pitt, had two points in eight minutes against Northeastern. ... Senior walk-on Matt Pennie had two points and two assists in two minutes Sunday. ... Dante Milligan, who once called the Petersen Events Center home when he played at Pitt, fouled out in what was likely his final game in the building. ... Duquesne big man Shawn James, who is sitting out this season after transferring from Northeastern, was at several of the Colonial Classic games. One of five Dukes shot in September, James was on crutches after having a bullet removed from his foot. ... Boston Celtics scout Leo Papile was at both games Sunday. Pittsburgh beat Oakland 66-55 in the second game.
