Farrell proving himself on defensive end
By David Brinch, Massachusetts Daily Collegian Staff, 2/2/2010

Freshman forward Javorn Farrell has earned a new nickname not only from his teammates on the Massachusetts men’s basketball team, but from UMass coach Derek Kellogg as well.

Junk Yard Dog.

“He’s earning the nickname, I won’t say he’s totally earned it yet, but we call him J.Y.D. around here, because that’s how he performs,” Kellogg said.

Kellogg is talking about Farrell’s scrappy and intense defensive play, particularly as of late, that has kept the Minutemen in a number of close games.

Farrell earned his third collegiate start against Charlotte on Saturday after playing in the teams first 15 games. Farrell blocked one shot and grabbed four steals in only 16 minutes of play, and also contributed offensively, grabbing three rebounds and scoring four points.

“It’s been good, I just try to do what I can to stay out on the floor, so I guess that got me more playing time,” Farrell said.

Even though the Minutemen fell to the 49ers, Farrell thought he played a complete game, defending forward Shamari Spears, a highly touted player who transferred from Boston College. Farrell held Spears to just four points and three rebounds throughout the contest.

“Last game was a good game, we fought pretty hard, but they made more runs than we did down the stretch, they took care of the ball and made their shots,” Farrell said. “I think I played pretty solid defensively.” “My assignment for the night was Spears, and I held him under his season averages, so I thought I did pretty well.”

Spears is eighth in the A-10 averaging 16.0 points per game.

Kellogg agreed, noting that if not for some miscues made on the offensive side of the ball for UMass, the Minutemen might have had a victory over one of the best teams in the Atlantic 10.

“He played great defense, and if it wasn’t for Green having a career night, we were in really good shape,” Kellogg said.

Farrell is averaging 3.7 points per game, and is second in the team in steals with 14, behind senior guard Ricky Harris who leads the team with 27.

Even with his scoring numbers not where he wants them to be, Farrell wants to improve offensively.

“I need to attack more, get to the basket and get to the free-throw line,” Farrell said.

This week, his defensive assignment doesn’t get any easier, with Xavier coming to the Mullins Center on Wednesday night.

The Musketeers are the best team in the A-10 with a 15-6 overall record and a 7-1 record in conference play. Farrell will most likely see a lot of action, especially against sophomore guard Jordan Crawford. The Indiana transfer sat out all of last season, but averaged 9.7 points per game for the Hoosiers in 2007-2008.

However, playing two of toughest conference opponents as well as matching up with two of the best players in the A-10 does not faze Farrell.

“They’re a very talented team that has a lot of power, so we’re just going to do what we normally do,” Farrell said. “Play tough defense; try to keep Jordan Crawford from getting the easy buckets that he has been getting all season.”

Crawford leads the A-10 in scoring (19.2 points per game), and although he is a huge scoring threat for the Musketeers, Kellogg sees it as a good test for his young player.

“I think he’s a good match up for Crawford, although he is older, knows the game a little bit better, and is a little bit mature, I think Javorn can match up with him at least physically.”

Both players are similarly built, with Farrell being listed as an inch taller than Crawford at 6-foot-5, and Crawford outweighing him by 15 pounds, weighing in at 195.

Kellogg feels that even though he is a freshman, Farrell has the physicality to compete at a high level early on in his collegiate career.

“You never know with freshmen, some guys come along a little bit quicker than others,” Kellogg said. “I think because he is a little bit more physically developed then some of the other guys, I think that’s helped him.”

Even though he is inexperienced, Farrell knows that he can compete with anyone he defends, and knows that he will have to work hard to continue to get better.

“Personally, I have a lot of confidence in myself, so I felt that if I kept working hard in practice that I would eventually crack the starting lineup,” Farrell said. “I’m not surprised at how early it came, but I am surprised at how much I’ve been playing. I think I’ve improved in knowing what I have to do on the court to stay on the court.”

Kellogg has been just as impressed with his highly touted freshmen, even comparing him with a former XU player.

“Just with his propensity to play hard, especially in the games, he’s done a great job,” Kellogg said. “Now, I need him to bring it everyday in practice, and I envision him someday here to be like C.J. Anderson was at Xavier the past few years, that kind of midsize tough guy that can penetrate to the rim, the best defender on the floor, and really the guy that comes up with all the lose balls and the tough guy plays.

“Not the most skilled, not the prettiest shot, but a guy who gets it done night in and night out.”

Gibbs breaks foot

Sophomore guard David Gibbs broke his foot during Monday’s practice, and will likely be out for the remainder of the season, according to Kellogg.

“It’s a blow for us, we’ve been thin at the point guard position up to this point, and I think losing him makes us a little more thin at that spot,” Kellogg said on the UMass Athletics web site.

“But I really feel for him and his family, to start to play well as he has been as of late and really get comfortable at that point guard spot, to have an injury at this juncture is difficult for a young man, and we’re going to say our prayers and stay with him.”

Gibbs had played in all 19 games, averaging 2.6 points per game, 2.5 assists per game and 1.8 rebounds in 19.9 minutes. He played 20 minutes against the 49ers, scoring two points, registering two assists, one rebound and one turnover in the loss.

UMass hoping to shut down Crawford, Xavier
By Adam Miller, Massachusetts Daily Collegian Staff, 2/3/2010

Even when Massachusetts men’s basketball coach Derek Kellogg isn’t scheduling games against tough non-conference opponents, the Minutemen still can’t get away from a difficult schedule.

After losing to Charlotte on Saturday night, UMass (8-13, 2-5 Atlantic 10) will play the current A-10 leader Xavier. The Musketeers (15-6, 7-1 A-10) are continuing to make a case for being in the Associated Press Top 25 Poll after rolling through Duquesne and Fordham in their last two games by an average of 42 points.

Offensively, they are near the top of the league in almost every category. Xavier leads the A-10 in points per game (79.8) and 3-point percentage (39.6), while holding the second best field-goal percentage (46.5) next to St. Bonaventure (47.5).

The Musketeers shooting in their last two games is one of the big reasons why they have faced little resistance as they shot the ball well over 50 percent from the field.

“They’re the benchmark in our league right now,” Kellogg said. “After watching a bunch of teams on tape and watching them play, I’d have to say that they’re the favorite right now to be an NCAA Tournament team and a potential team that can advance as they’ve proven throughout the 2000’s.”

Unless the Minutemen can turnaround their shooting woes this season, they will have to rely on their defense to cool down Xavier’s offense. UMass finished the game against the 49ers 34.3 percent from the field and 14.3 percent from beyond the arc in its 72-58 loss.

Other than senior Ricky Harris’s 25 points, the Minutemen offense fell flat as 49er guard Derrio Green (34 points) had the best game of his career.

If there’s anything positive the Maroon and White can take away from playing one of the best teams in the A-10, it’s that freshman Javorn Farrell is already displaying the work ethic necessary to shut down a team’s top scorer.

Farrell’s assignment, Shamari Spears (16 points per game), who is usually Charlotte’s best scorer, finished with four points in 30 minutes of play. After the game, Kellogg praised the freshman for his hustle and willingness to be physical on the defensive end.

Before practice on Monday, Kellogg said that he will likely have Farrell guarding Jordan Crawford, a transfer from Indiana leading the A-10 with 19.2 points per game.

Although Crawford has a significant amount of experience over Farrell, Kellogg hopes that his physical maturity will wear down the Musketeers’ best offensive player.

“They’re both about the same size, they’re both similar in build,” Kellogg said. “I just think Crawford has been in college longer and knows how to play the game a little bit better. But you never underestimate a guy who’s like a street fighter out there that competes and contests on every play, and I think Javorn is becoming that guy for us.”

Although Farrell showed his ability to shut down a leading scorer against the 49ers, he will have a little bit more of a challenge against Crawford, who is faster and a better scorer than Spears.

Crawford has gone the last 17 games scoring at least 16 points against quality opponents, which include four teams in the Top 25. His worst scoring night of the season came on Nov. 26 where he finished with nine points on 4-of-20 shooting.

“We’re just going to do what we normally do and play tough defense,” Farrell said of stopping Crawford. “We have to keep Crawford from getting easy buckets like he’s been doing all season.”

Even if Farrell can successfully guard Crawford, the Minutemen still have to worry about Xavier’s size. Center Kenny Frease (6.2 points per game, 5.1 rebounds per game) has been very productive as a seven-footer averaging 18.3 minutes in playing time.

The Musketeers also feature forward Jason Love, who is husky at 6-foot-9 and is the leading rebounder for his team and is its second best scorer.

Over the past few games, rebounding has been the least of UMass’ worries, especially on the offensive end, where it’s averaging a league-leading 15.3 offensive rebounds per game. But if strong rebounding doesn’t turn into more second-chance points, the Minutemen are going to find themselves struggling to catch-up to Xavier’s high-powered offense.

UMass’ biggest struggle against opponents lately is that it gives itself plenty of scoring opportunities because of its rebounding, but doesn’t finish as often as Kellogg would like.

The Minutemen beat the 49er’s, 17-10, in offensive rebounding, but finished with 13 second-chance points.

UMass faces Xavier wihout Gibbs
By Matt Vautour, Daily Hampshire Gazette Staff Writer, 2/3/2010

AMHERST - Beating Xavier figured to be a difficult challenge at full strength for the struggling University of Massachusetts men's basketball team.

But Tuesday's news that sophomore guard David Gibbs would miss six to eight weeks with a broken left foot only made the task that much more daunting.

"We were doing some ball-handling stuff trying to be physical" in practice on Monday, said UMass coach Derek Kellogg. "He rolled his ankle and it turned out to be a broken foot."

The injury likely ends Gibbs' season as the Minutemen (8-13, 2-5 Atlantic 10) would have to advance beyond the conference tournament for him to have any chance of returning.

Gibbs had started 16 games, including the last five, and averaged 2.6 points and 2.4 assists in 19.7 minutes per game.

"I'm hoping Gary Correia can give us some more minutes at the point and Ricky (Harris) is going to have to play some more point guard which I was trying to get away from," Kellogg said. "I like having him up the floor more.

"David was pressuring the ball well and getting a better feel for the spot," he added. "It's a setback for our team and a bigger setback for a young man who was trying to assert himself."

Gibbs would have been a candidate to guard Jordan Crawford, the Musketeers' 6-foot-4 transfer from Indiana, who leads the Atlantic 10 in scoring at 19.2 points per game. Without Gibbs, freshman Javorn Farrell will get the first crack at Crawford.

"I've seen him play over this whole season and he's been doing well, but I can do some things that could interrupt him," Farrell said. "I like to get this kind of assignment. I like to show the coaches I can do this if they ask.

"Gibbs was our primary guard defender," he added. "I'm going to have to take on that role now. I'm looking forward to it."

Senior Ricky Harris said he is looking forward to tonight's game at 7 at the Mullins Center.

"Xavier is always good," he said. "They're an NCAA Tournament team. Since my freshman year it's always been a competitive game. We always have good matchups with these guys."

Harris said the Musketeers are a model program for the conference. "They're like the Gonzaga of the Atlantic 10," he said. "They're consistent. They get good players to come there. They graduate good players and they get more good players. That's the way its supposed to be."

Kellogg agreed.

"They've been to eight NCAA Tournaments in the 2000s and they're going on nine out of 10. They've been able to sustain it for year after year," he said. "They have a certain sense of stability there that we're all looking for as a program."

Xavier arrives in Amherst at 15-6 overall and in first place in the conference at 7-1 as the Musketeers chase their fourth straight regular-season crown.

In addition to Crawford, Xavier has several standout players including senior big man Jason Love (11 points per game, 8.7 rebounds) and sophomore point guard Terrell Holloway (10.9 points, 4.1 assists).

LEAMAN LEGACY GAME - Tonight's contest is the annual Leaman Legacy Game which honors former coach and broadcaster Jack Leaman. A portion of the revenue from ticket sales will go to the Leaman Legacy Fund to help pay for athletic scholarships at UMass.

UMass will wear its throwback uniforms that were originally worn while Leaman coached the team between 1966 and 1979. He died in 2004.

HARRIS STILL CLIMBING - Harris enters the game needing 27 points to crack the Minutemen's top five career scorers list. Harris has 1,704 career points and is chasing No. 5 Lorenzo Sutton (1,731 points).

UMass Comeback Thwarted By Xavier, 87-79
The Minutemen came back from 17 down to take the lead in the second half before falling to the Musketeers
From UMass Athletics, 2/3/2010

AMHERST, Mass. - After trailing by 17 at the half UMass came back to take the lead in the second half, before Xavier used a late 9-0 run to defeat the Minutemen, 87-79, on Wednesday night at the Mullins Center on Leaman Legacy Night. UMass opened the second half with runs of 11-2 and 12-2 to climb back before the teams exchanged the lead eight more times. UMass fell to 8-14 overall and 2-6 in the Atlantic 10, while Xavier, who received 31 votes in this week's AP poll, went to 16-6 overall and 8-1 in the A-10.

Ricky Harris led four Minutemen in double-figures with 24 points, 20 of which came in the second half. Javorn Farrell scored a career-high 12 points, while Terrell Vinson (11) and Freddie Riley (10) rounded out the UMass double-digit scorers.

Xavier was led by Jordan Crawford's 25 points, while Terrell Holloway added 16 and Jason Love 15. Jamel McLean had a double-double with 14 points and 11 rebounds.

Trailing by 17 at the half, UMass opened the second half on fire on both ends of the court, making three steals in the opening four minutes and shooting 5-for-7 in that time, to start the half with an 11-2 run and pull within eight, 52-42. The Minutemen kept the pedal down, putting together a 12-2 run on four 3-point trips, a three by Gurley, two by Harris, and an old-fashioned 3-point play by Hashim Bailey, to pull within two, 58-46, with 10:48 to go.

A Harris layup in transition tied the game, 62-62, and a Anthony Gurley free throw with 7:28 left gave UMass the lead, 63-62. The teams then exchanged blows, trading leads eight times over the next 3:15, until Crawford hit 3-pointers on back-to-back trips, followed by a McLean 3-point play to give the Musketeers 77-69 lead with 2:48 left.

For the game UMass shot 43 percent from the field, including 7-for-32 from 3-point range, while Xavier shot 59 percent and was 7-for-17 from behind the arc. The Musketeers held a 36-32 edge in rebounding.

A 10-2 run by the Minutemen gave them an early 13-10 lead as the home team made five of its first six shots from the field, but the Musketeers immediately went on an 18-0 run over 3:30, holding UMass scoreless over a total of five minutes, to take a 28-13 lead with 11 minutes left in the first half. Xavier shot a scorching 78.6 percent over the first nine minutes.

UMass did respond, outscoring Xavier, 15-10 over the next eight minutes to pull within eight, 38-30, with 3:26 left in the first half, but once again the Musketeers answered a Minutemen run with one of their own, closing the half on a 12-2 run to take a 50-33 lead into halftime.

Love led all scorers with 12 points in the first half on 5-for-6 shooting, while Xavier as a team shot 64.5 percent, including 5-for-9 from 3-point range. The Minutemen were led in the opening 20 minutes by Farrell's eight points as his team shot 38 percent.

The Minutemen return to action on Saturday when they travel to Kingston, R.I. to take on Rhode Island in a 2 p.m. Atlantic 10 game.

QUOTES

Coach Kellogg's reaction to the game
That was a good Atlantic-10 battle. Xavier was very good in the first half pulling out with a 17 point halftime lead. Our guys regrouped at halftime and put a little scare into them. I thought we played tough and really made plays and shared the basketball. That second half that way we competed and played was kind of how I envisioned our team playing for a full 40 minutes at some point, preferably in the near future. I thought when the game was in the balance we made a great comeback run, Crawford really took over and made some big time plays. He did a good job, and I think our youth in junctures there hurt us. I guess I'm going to try to take some positives out of this game, our guys fought and competed. We are going to move forward and try to compete and get better.

Coach Kellogg on his guys playing hard for the full 40 minutes in other games this season
Yeah we definitely could have pulled out some W's. It's still a learning curve, if you look at the stats and who played the amount of minutes, it's a lot of new faces, it's a lot of young guys and I foresee them getting better every game and as the season moves forward.

Coach Kellogg on getting his team to believe they are getting better
One of the things they got to believe is that if we continue to do what we do in practice and in games that at some point you start getting notches in the victory column. That's hard especially when you are playing in league this year that is about as good as it has ever been. I think top to bottom I don't know when it has ever been this good. I'm looking at all this bracketology stuff and they have six teams from our league in the NCAA tournament. That's a lot of good teams. This is a very good team we played tonight, that's mature and a little bit older, and has a pretty good way about them. But I am going to keep preaching to my guys, we aren't going to settle. We aren't coming out on top but at the same time it is a little bit of a process right now.

Coach Kellogg on Ricky Harris' performance in the second half
That was as good as he played all year. He was very good, he shared the basketball, he was working and scraping on defense and I only remember one play in the half that he wasn't totally in control. At times I thought he was the best player on the floor in the second half, and he did a really nice job for us.

Ricky Harris on taking positives from the game
I'm not happy we lost but down the stretch we cut a 17 point lead to a tie game then we took the lead at one point. That definitely showed toughness on our part, it showed the will that we wanted to win and not quit. That's the exciting thing about this young team, these guys have three more years left together if they start doing this now im pretty sure when they become sophomore, juniors and seniors that its going to all come together and they are going to be a good team.

Ricky Harris on this being a milestone game
I would say so, Xavier is a good team, they have one loss in the conference, we played them pretty tough. Every game that we have played so far, these last couple weeks, we have learned something from and we have to take something from each one of those games and eventually just bring it all together, so we can find the solution to winning. And whatever that solution is I want to find it.

Freddie Riley on coming out aggressive
Coach Kellogg talked to us about that earlier after shoot-around. He told us its late in the season and we need to stop playing scared and we need to stop playing like freshman and we need to assert ourselves more on offence and on defense.

Xavier Coach Chris Mack Postgame Notes:
Well I want to start off by saying it was a tale of two halves. I thought we were playing exceptionally well in the first half, I thought we defended the first four minutes to start the game as well as we have all year against a very athletic, explosive backcourt that UMass presents. After halftime we go into the second half, UMass took over the game and I give them a lot of credit. They were able to penetrate, they really gave us fits the first four minutes, we turned the ball over several times. I told our kids at halftime to remember our game at La Salle which was our first conference game. We were up big at halftime at La Salle and we told them that the first four minutes would set the tone for the rest of the game. And it did, unfortunately UMass became energized, it got them back in the game. Their defensive energy and aggressiveness took us out and it became a ball game. I'm happy that we won, I'm disappointed with the way we played in the second half, but again happy that we won.

Coach Mack on team being too comfortable with a 17 point lead:
Well you can say that, but you can also give UMass a lot of credit. I thought their kids played a lot harder on the defensive end in the second half. They were certainly pressuring us out on the floor and we turned the ball over several times which lead to easy transition points and eventually got the score below ten points. I think once UMass saw the deficient shrink below double digits, they felt alive and it became a ball game. We couldn't get any easy looks because we were pressured early on. We finally settled down on the offensive end late in the second half. It might be a little bit too late because it was a tie ball game by then, but we were able to down the stretch to finally win the game.

As an offense we were out of sink. I give UMass a lot of credit, they pressure our big guys, we stood still too much early in the second half. Our dribble ball screens, our handoffs were away from the basket, which I thought was affective for us in the first half. Again we settled down, but by the time we settled down on offense, we had a ball game on our hands.

Mack on having multiple turnovers:
I would say my biggest concern. When you do that on the road, you usually get bit. It was a repeat performance that we had against La Salle. It was too easy too early, we were playing well and then the other team decided to get aggressive.


Xavier rallies to beat UMass
By Shannon Russell, Cincinnati Enquirer, 1/31/2010

AMHERST, Mass. – After squandering a 17-point lead and one of their most complete first halves this season, Xavier rallied to beat Massachusetts 87-79 in the final minutes of an Atlantic 10 Conference showdown Wednesday night.

Jordan Crawford hit back-to-back 3-pointers to fuel a 9-0 run down the stretch and Xavier, despite an embattled defensive performance after halftime, hung on for a fourth straight win.

Crawford scored a team-high 25 points, including five 3-pointers, and Terrell Holloway added 16 points, six rebounds and five assists before 3,538 fans at the Mullins Center.

Both players said XU was simply too comfortable with the 17-point lead at the break.

“A couple times it happened this year where we came out sluggish in the second half again. We weren’t ready and they jumped on us,” Holloway said.

XU endured a similar fate against La Salle. It frittered away a 41-26 halftime lead and needed an offensive push in the last two minutes to secure the win.

When the Musketeers retreated to the locker room at halftime with a 17-point advantage Wednesday, coach Chris Mack warned them to remember La Salle.

“We told them the first four minutes was going to set the tone for the rest of the game. It did. Unfortunately, it set the tone for UMass being energized. It got them back in the game,” Mack said. “I thought their defensive energy and aggressiveness took us out.”

XU turned over the ball three times in the first 3:23 of the second stanza. UMass responded with an 11-2 run and ultimately overtook the lead.

Senior Ricky Harris engineered UMass’ comeback bid with a team-high 24 points. Harris normally plays shooting guard but shifted to point guard to replace David Gibbs, who broke his left foot in Tuesday’s practice.

Harris scored 20 of his points in the second half by dicing XU’s defense from the inside out. His layup with 9:43 remaining shredded the Muskies’ lead to two, and soon after, Anthony Gurley provided a basket and the Minutemen's first second-half lead.

The clubs played through eight ties and 10 lead changes before Crawford’s consecutive treys gave XU a permanent boost.

“I was lucky I got two open shots,” Crawford said.

XU outscored UMass 19-10 from those baskets onward to close out the game.

Xavier (16-6, 8-1 Atlantic 10) dealt the Minutemen (8-14, 2-6) a seventh loss in eight games.

The Muskies shot a blistering 59 percent and persevered behind Jason Love’s 15 points and Jamel McLean’s 14 points and team-high 11 rebounds.

But turnovers nearly lead to their undoing, as UMass scored 22 points off XU’s 12 miscues. The Minutemen’s defense held the Muskies to 37 second-half points.

“By the time we settled down on offense, we had a ball game on our hands,” Mack said.


All is not lost for Minutemen
Xavier gets the win; UMass gets respect
By Marty Dobrow, Boston Globe Correspondent, 2/4/2010

AMHERST - True, the bottom line is a loss. The ninth loss in 11 games for the University of Massachusetts. Another loss in a season of lots of losses for the 8-14 (2-6 Atlantic 10) Minutemen.

But last night’s 87-79 loss to Xavier was, perhaps more than any previous defeat, one that has UMass looking ahead to a reasonable expectation of better days.

“I’m not happy that we lost,’’ said UMass’s lone senior, Ricky Harris, “but guys showed toughness down the stretch. It showed a will that we’re not going to quit. That’s the exciting thing about this young team.’’

UMass gave the league’s first-place team, the Atlantic 10’s standard-bearer over the last decade, all that it could handle. Xavier built a 17-point halftime lead, showcasing great ball pressure, rebounding, and a lethally aggressive halfcourt offense.

The Minutemen came off the mat, though, with a spirited second half that might have been their finest 20 minutes of the season. Led by a fearless performance by Harris (a team-high 24 points), and the precocious play of freshmen Javorn Farrell (12), Terrell Vinson (11), and Freddie Riley (10), UMass erased the deficit and took 1-point leads on four occasions, the last after a putback by Vinson with 4:37 left.

At that point, though, the league’s top scorer asserted himself. Jordan Crawford, a transfer from Indiana, drilled back-to-back 3-pointers and UMass never again got within a one-possession deficit.

“When the game was in the balance, when we made a big run and came back, Crawford really took over and made some big-time plays,’’ said UMass coach Derek Kellogg.

Crawford led all scorers with 25 points, connecting on 8 of 15 from the field, including 5 of 8 from long range. Point guard Terrell Holloway was superb with 16 points and five assists. Jason Love was extremely efficient in the post, scoring 15 points on 6-of-7 shooting, and Jamel McLean added a double-double (14 points, 11 rebounds) for the Musketeers (16-6, 8-1) .

Xavier coach Chris Mack was very impressed by the Minutemen’s charge in the second half. “I thought UMass completely took over the game,’’ he said. “Their defensive energy and aggressiveness took us out.’’

The Minutemen played without point guard David Gibbs, who has started 19 games this season. Gibbs broke his foot earlier in the week in practice and is likely lost for the season.

Still, they summoned an excellent team effort, one that they hope will provide a springboard for getting over the top and closing out some games with a better result.

They are on the ropes now about even making the Atlantic 10 tournament with eight games left.

“We have to take something from each of those games,’’ said Harris, “and eventually bring it all together, bring it into one, so we can find the solution to winning.’’

UMass hits the road to take on Rhode Island Saturday.


Late surge by Minutemen comes up short
By David Brinch, Massachusetts Daily Collegian Staff, 2/4/2010

The Massachusetts men’s basketball team was almost there.

A big second half comeback, improved shooting, and stout defense nearly came together for the Minutemen against Xavier Wednesday night at the Mullins Center.

UMass (8-14, 2-6 Atlantic 10), however, couldn’t hold off a strong shooting performance from Musketeers (16-6, 8-1 A-10) guard Jordan Crawford, falling 87-79 on Leaman Legacy Night.

Crawford, the leading scorer in the A-10, scored a game-high 25 points, going 8-for-15 from the field and 5-of-8 from deep.

“I thought that was a good Atlantic 10 battle, Xavier was really good in the first half, pulling out to a 17-point halftime lead,” UMass coach Derek Kellogg said. “Our guys regrouped at halftime and put a little scare into them, and I thought we played tough and really made plays and shared the basketball.”

The Minutemen started firing on all cylinders at the beginning of the second half, causing three steals in the first four minutes while shooting 5-for-7 on the other end of the court. UMass went on an 12-2 run with two 3-pointers from senior guard Ricky Harris, one from junior guard Gary Correia and a three-point play from redshirt junior Hashim Bailey.

Harris had 24 points, going 11-of-20 from the field, but struggled from beyond the arc, going just 2-of-8 from 3-point range.

“That was as good as he’s played in the second half all year,” Kellogg said. “He shared the basketball, he was working and scrapping on defense, and at times I thought he was the best player on the floor in that half.”

Correia, as well as Harris, saw extensive time at the point guard position, as sophomore David Gibbs broke his foot in Monday’s practice and will likely be out the remainder of the season.

Harris made a lay-up in transition to tie the game at 62, followed by a made free-throw from Anthony Gurley to put the Minutemen up one with nearly seven and a half minutes to play.

Both teams exchanged leads eight times over the next three minutes, but Green put the game out of reach with back-to-back 3’s followed by a three-point play by forward Jamel McLean (14 points, 11 rebounds) that put the game out of reach quickly for UMass.

Kellogg started three freshmen against the Musketeers, including forwards Terrell Vinson and Javorn Farrell and guard Freddie Riley. Riley added 10 points, while Farrell and Vinson added 12 and 11 respectively.

The Minutemen were outrebounded, 36-32, by the Musketeers, but shot a respectable 43 percent from the field.

After tough losses against two of the best teams in the league, the Minutemen face Rhode Island on Saturday.

“The league this year is as good as it’s ever been,” Kellogg said. “Top to bottom, I don’t know when it’s ever been this good, they have six teams in our league in the NCAA tournament,” Kellogg said.

The Minutemen have not won a conference game at home since Jan. 6, when they defeated Fordham, 78-76.

Even with the way UMass played down the stretch, Kellogg wants to see his team’s hard work turn into victories.

“I’m going to keep preaching to my guys, we can’t settle for not coming out on top, but at the same token, it is a little bit of a process right now,” Kellogg said.

Scoring inconsistencies hurting Minutemen
By Adam Miller, Massachusetts Daily Collegian Staff, 1/31/2010

If it wasn’t for the name on the visiting team’s jersey, last night’s game would be oddly familiar to the one the Massachusetts men’s basketball team played less than a week ago.

It goes on a run against a competitive opponent, but eventually shoots itself out of the game. UMass did exactly that in its 87-79 loss to Xavier.

The Minutemen (8-14, 2-6 Atlantic 10) held a 69-68 lead with four minutes, 37 seconds remaining in the second half, but the Musketeers (16-6, 8-1 A-10) came right back with nine straight points. The only offense the Minutemen could produce were two missed 3-pointers by guards Anthony Gurley and Freddie Riley.

It started with two straight 3-pointers by Jordan Crawford, who scored 10 of his 25 points in the final 4:11 to put Xavier up five points.

By the time UMass started hitting baskets on its own, it was too late, as the Musketeers responded right back.

“I thought we played tough and really made plays and shared the basketball,” UMass coach Derek Kellogg said. “That second half, the way we competed and played is kind of the way I hopefully envision our team playing for 40 minutes in the near future.”

The Minutemen had a similar game against Charlotte on Saturday night, and came within one point of taking the lead early in the second half, but the 49ers went on a 15-3 run and kept the Maroon and White out of the game.

UMass didn’t score a single field goal for 8:34, but it was too late as they never got any closer than nine points.

Fouls add up late

The Minutemen and Musketeers were physical throughout the contest, but for UMass, being physical ended up hurting towards the end of the game.

Despite finishing with only two more fouls than Xavier (17), Terrell Vinson, Javorn Farrell, and Sean Carter all fouled out of the game. Wednesday saw the greatest number of UMass players foul out in a single contest this season.

Farrell and Carter didn’t foul out until the final minute, but Kellogg had to divide the minutes pretty regularly with his three starters getting in foul trouble.

The Musketeers only had two players with four fouls. Jason Love finished the game with 32 minutes while Brad Redford picked all of his fouls up in six minutes.

Riley makes first start

Kellogg knew that as soon as he lost sophomore David Gibbs for the season with a broken foot that one of his other guards would have to step up.

Last night, that player was freshman Freddie Riley, who started for the first time in his career at shooting guard while senior Ricky Harris took back the point guard position. Riley finished the game with 10 points on 4-of-11 shooting and came down with five rebounds.

It was a drastic improvement from his game against the 49ers, where he finished with no points on four shot attempts, all from beyond the arc.

“[Kellogg] told [the freshmen] that we need to stop playing like freshmen and we need to assert ourselves a little more on offense and defense,” Riley said.

Despite Riley’s inconsistencies, he has made himself the third leading scorer for UMass, averaging 9.9 points per game. His best game came against La Salle, where he put up 22 points on 7-of-15 shooting. Six of those field goals were from 3-point range.

Ainge in attendance

Boston Celtics General Manager Danny Ainge was in attendance to scout players on the Xavier squad. The only player from the Musketeers likely to go pro this year is Love, who is the team’s lone starting senior.

The center finished with 15 points on 6-of-7 shooting and grabbed five rebounds to go along with a block.

He currently averages 11.1 points per game and 8.5 rebounds.

Xavier staves off fierce UMass rally
By Matt Vautour, Daily Hampshire Gazette Staff Writer, 2/4/2010

AMHERST - After the University of Massachusetts men's basketball team rallied to make Wednesday night's game close in the second half, Jordan Crawford took over for Xavier and broke the Minutemen's hearts.

UMass erased a 17-point halftime deficit and had a one-point lead with 4 minutes, 40 seconds left.

But Crawford, who leads the Atlantic 10 in scoring, hit back-to-back 3-pointers as the Musketeers regained control and escaped the Mullins Center with an 87-79 win.

"Crawford really took over and made some big-time plays," Minuteman coach Derek Kellogg said.

Ricky Harris, who had his best offensive game in weeks with 24 points, scored 20 in the second half. His 3-pointer with 10:48 left capped the surge and brought UMass within two at 58-56.

He led the Minutemen out of the break on a 23-8 run that rattled Xavier.

"In the second half, that was as good as Ricky played all year," Kellogg said. "At times he was the best player on the floor."

With just under eight minutes left, a layup by Harris on the break tied the game at 62-62 and a free throw by Anthony Gurley gave UMass the lead at 63-62 with 7:28 remaining.

The lead ping-ponged back and forth for three minutes with neither team going ahead by more than a point until Crawford took over. He hit a 3-pointer from the right corner with 4:12 left to put Xavier up by two. Gurley tried to answer, but his 3-pointer was short. Crawford hit another 3 to stretch the Musketeers' edge to 74-69 with 3:30 left.

Freddie Riley missed a 3-pointer at the other end and Jamel McLean delivered the knockout blow with a 3-point play that gave the visitors an eight-point lead with 2:45 left.

"Jamel was the difference down the stretch," said Xavier coach Chris Mack, whose team stayed in first place in the Atlantic 10 at 8-1 (16-6 overall) . "We went from a one-point deficit to a five-point lead and gave our team a lot of confidence."

Kellogg said he was disappointed with the result but proud of his team's effort.

"Our guys regrouped at halftime and really put a little scare into them," Kellogg said. "I thought our guys played tough. The way we played in the second half is how I envision our team hopefully playing for 40 minutes at some point.

"I'm going to take some positives out of the game that our team fought and competed," he added. "We're going move forward and try to continue to get better."

Javorn Farrell had a career-high 12 points and four assists for the Minutemen (8-14, 2-6 A-10). Terrell Vinson added 11 points and Riley had 10 for UMass.

Crawford's 25 led the Musketeers, while McLean had 14 points and 11 rebounds. Terrell Holloway scored 16 points for Xavier and Jason Love added 15.

At halftime it looked like the Musketeers would be able to pick their score. After the Minutemen hit three early 3-pointers and led 13-10, the giant in blue seemed to wake up as Xavier tore off an 18-0 run.

Even things that looked good for UMass went Xavier's way. With 2:14 remaining, Harris led a UMass break off a steal and attacked the basket expecting a layup, but Crawford, who was trailing the play, timed Harris' shot perfectly for a block. That launched a Musketeer fast break that finished with Mark Lyons burying an open 3-pointer.

The play started a 10-2 half-closing run for Xavier which led 50-33 at the break.

Harris said the Minutemen came out of intermission with renewed resolve.

"We put all our egos aside. I had to stop forcing shots. At the beginning of the game I was forcing a lot of shots and not playing within the team concept," Harris said. "We came out, got a few steals and made some plays to make that run."

UMass freshmen answer coach's challenge
By Matt Vautour, Daily Hampshire Gazette Staff Writer, 2/4/2010

AMHERST - At the end of Wednesday's shoot-around, University of Massachusetts men's basketball coach Derek Kellogg pulled his five freshmen aside and challenged them.

"I told them it's time to step their game up, to be more vocal and become leaders," Kellogg said. "It's time. I told them #You're no longer a freshman. Stop using that as an excuse as a player. This is what I expected out of you when we recruited you so now go do it.' "

While Raphiael Putney is expected to redshirt, the four rookies that played against Xavier heeded his message and were part of the reason the Minutemen put a scare into the Musketeers before falling 87-79.

"I thought they fought and battled tonight. They played tough and played physical," Kellogg said. "I thought tonight was the best our freshmen played as a whole and you're going to continue to see good things out of those guys."

Freddie Riley said, "Coach told us it's late in the season and we need to stop playing scared and stop playing like freshmen. We need to assert ourselves more."

Riley took over starting spot vacated by injured sophomore guard David Gibbs. Riley took advantage of his opportunity with 10 points and five rebounds.

Javorn Farrell looked for his offense more in this game than he had in any since the exhibition against Dowling on Nov. 7. He had a career-high 12 points and four assists.

Despite having his minutes limited by foul trouble, Terrell Vinson added 11 points.

Ricky Harris praised his rookie teammates.

"I'm not happy that we lost, but guys showed toughness down the stretch. That's the exciting thing about this young team," Harris said. "If they're starting to do this now, when they become sophomores, juniors and seniors, it will all come together and they'll be a good team."

NEXT UP - The Minutemen return to action at 2 p.m. Saturday when they travel to Kingston, R.I., to play Rhode Island. The Rams are 18-3 (6-2 Atlantic 10) after beating La Salle 90-83 on Tuesday.

HEAD CELTIC AT MULLINS - Boston Celtics president Danny Ainge was among the 3,538 in the building, likely to scout Xavier senior big man Jason Love.

SUPER BOWL BOUND - Referee Gene Steratore, who was one of the three officials calling Wednesday's game will have a slightly higher profile assignment on Sunday. The veteran ref will go from Amherst to Miami, where he will be an alternate official for the Super Bowl.
