UMass looks to make it two-straight victories
By David Brinch, Massachusetts Daily Collegian Staff, 12/4/2009

Last season, the Massachusetts men’s basketball team used senior leadership from Tony Gaffney and Chris Lowe in order to defeat in-state rival Holy Cross.

This season, senior guard Ricky Harris and the rest of the Minutemen will look to make it two-straight against the Crusaders when UMass travels to Worcester Saturday for a 3:30 p.m. tip-off.

The Minutemen (3-4) defeated Quinnipiac Wednesday night, 62-58, after falling to Michigan State and Rutgers in the championship round of the Legends Classic last weekend. Harris led UMass with 19 points and six assists against the Bobcats, while redshirt junior Anthony Gurley added 15 points and six rebounds.

“Right now, for our team’s psyche and getting our guys in the right frame of mind, a ‘W’ is a nice thing to have. It’s one of those ones where a lot of the hard work correlates into wins,” Kellogg said. “I think a tough road game against Holy Cross Saturday is a good way to see how far we’ve come.”

After dropping their first six games of the season, the Crusaders (2-6) have registered back-to-back wins against Marist and Brown with the help of Mike Cavatio, R.J. Evans and Andrew Keister. Cavatio, a sophomore transfer from St. John’s University, leads the team in scoring with 13.3 points per game. Evans, a sophomore guard, is second behind Cavatio with 12 points per game and 23 assists, and was the Patriot League Rookie of the Year last season, while junior forward Keister leads the Crusaders in rebounding (8.6 per game).

“They’re on a two game winning streak, they seem to be playing better and I think its two similar teams in similar areas this time of the year,” Kellogg said. “We are both trying to find ourselves, and figure out where we stand nationally.”

Like the Minutemen, the Crusaders have a young team but experienced team, with just two seniors and four freshmen, including a transfer in Cavatio.

However, Kellogg realizes that they are a talented team that returns five sophomores and three juniors, all of whom have collegiate experience.

“They’re a team that has a lot of guys coming back, and I think the biggest thing I think that’s going on is that they’re trying to get acclimated to a new coach,” Kellogg said. “There are different styles that they are playing, but they have an older team that has played well in the past, and I think they are trying to find their groove a little bit.”

Sean Kearney took over the program this season after former coach Ralph Willard left the Crusaders program he turned into a contender and accepted an associate coaching position at Louisville under longtime friend Rick Pitino. From 1999 to 2009, Willard went 174-103 at HC.

The Crusaders play a combination of zone and man defense, and will look to take advantage of a UMass team that was outrebounded, 46-29, by the Bobcats, including 28-11 on the offensive end of the floor.

Last season, the Minutemen played stingy defense in the second half, as Harris led all scorers with 23 points, and Gurley added 14 points and six rebounds to put three UMass players in double figures.

HC was predicted to win the Patriot League this season, and will face the Minutemen at home next season at the end of the three-year deal between both teams. Kellogg feels that this could become a great in-state match-up between two teams that are looking to build their programs back up to national prominence.

“I think its good for the state of Massachusetts, and it gets us in Worcester some,” Kellogg said.

Kellogg puts Harris in control of the dribble-drive offense
By Adam Miller, Massachusetts Daily Collegian Staff, 12/4/2009

When former Memphis coach John Calipari introduced the dribble-drive motion offense to his basketball team before the 2005-06 season, he had the benefit of having two point guards who possessed solid ball-handling ability and a knack for scoring.

Darius Washington, Calipari’s first point guard to run the new offense, averaged 14.4 points per game in his two years with the Tigers and earned All-Conference USA team honors his sophomore year.

The next point guard to take over was Derrick Rose, who wound up becoming the No. 1 pick in the 2009 NBA Draft after averaging 14.9 points per game with Memphis.

Massachusetts men’s basketball coach Derek Kellogg brought the offense along with Vance Walberg, who created the dribble-drive when he took over before the 2008-09 season. Kellogg hoped that his point guard, Chris Lowe, could become a prolific scorer in the offense similar to Washington and Rose.

Lowe’s scoring average went up from 11.8 points per game to 12.4, but he also averaged four turnovers a game compared to his junior year when he averaged 2.9, and the Minutemen finished 10th in the Atlantic 10.

This year, sophomore David Gibbs got the nod as the starting point guard for UMass (3-4), but he struggled in the offense under Walberg’s system, averaging 2.9 points and 2.9 assists per game.

Kellogg tried using junior Gary Correia at that position by giving him more minutes, but he also struggled under the offense.

Over Thanksgiving break, Kellogg figured he’d shake the lineup around a little bit by playing the Minutemen’s leading scorer, Ricky Harris, as point guard in order to have his biggest threat bringing the ball up like he had at Memphis.

Kellogg made the move mostly because he thought Harris would be more comfortable as an experienced player compared to Gibbs.

“I just felt like putting a senior back there with the ball brought stability to the team and Gibbs was playing well, but I need him to get more comfortable with that position,” Kellogg said.

The only concern Kellogg had about making the move was that his scoring might go down and because UMass relies so much on Harris to make the offense work, the switch might do more harm than good.

So far, Kellogg likes what he sees. Harris is still one of the leading scorers on a consistent basis, and he has an understanding of how to play within the offense.

“It’s nice to have a point guard who can put the ball in the basket as well as distributing it,” Kellogg said. “I just think that Ricky is our most mature player. He is our only senior, and to give your older guys the ball is really the way to go.”

On Wednesday night against Quinnipiac, Harris (six assists) nearly tied his career-high in assists (seven on Jan. 30, 2008 against Duquesne), and also scored 19 points. That effort was enough to convince Kellogg that Harris is best suited for the position.

“All in all, I think he might’ve been the best or second best player in that game,” Kellogg said.

The transition hasn’t been perfect. Against Rutgers and Michigan State, Harris combined for 11 turnovers, but Kellogg believes as he becomes used to his new position, that number isn’t going to be so high.

In an ideal situation, Gibbs will go back to point guard either sometime this year or next year once he becomes acclimated with running the dribble-drive offense and gains experience. But for now, Kellogg believes that Gibbs will improve the most as a point guard either by playing shooting guard or sitting behind Harris.

UMass hopes to rebound at Holy Cross
By Matt Vautour, Daily Hampshire Gazette Staff Writer, 12/5/2009

AMHERST - Three days after defeating Quinnipiac despite getting dominated on the glass, the University of Massachusetts men's basketball team will face another difficult rebounding challenge against Holy Cross.

The teams play at 3:30 p.m., Saturday at the DCU Center in Worcester.

UMass coach Derek Kellogg said rebounding has been a focus since the 62-58 win over Quinnipiac on Wednesday, but practice has been limited.

"With not a lot of practice time, you can talk about it and mentally focus, but we haven't been able to get as much time practicing it as we'd like," he said. "I think our guys understand for us to be a better team we must rebound the basketball better. You can play great defense and do everything you're supposed to do, but if you don't get the rebound, it's all for naught."

Sophomore big man Sean Carter leads the Minutemen (3-4) in rebounding at 6.4 per game. He expects a challenge Saturday.

"We better all get in there and box out. We've all been boxing out, but now we've got to come away with the balls. The few big men we have, have to come up with more rebounds," he said.

Carter, who is still building stamina after sitting out last year as a transfer, added, "I'm in decent shape, but I could still get in better shape. My body is still adapting to playing in the games. I've been sore, but I'm getting through it."

Kellogg said he has high expectations for Carter, but he needs help. "He's around the basket most of the time. We really need 8-10 rebounds from him, but the place we can really improve is our guards," Kellogg said. "They have to get their nose in there, tough it out and get some boards. We need Terrell (Vinson) to rebound better and Sampson (Carter) to rebound better."

Holy Cross has decent size for a Patriot League team and presents some potential problems for the Minutemen, who are thin up front.

Andrew Keister, a 6-foot-9 junior forward, leads the Crusaders (2-6) with 8.6 rebounds per game to go with his 11.6 points, and 6-foot-8 center Eric Meister is averaging 5.3 boards.

Even 6-foot-4 sophomore forward Mike Cavataio (6.9 rebounds) and 6-foot-3 sophomore guard R.J. Evans (five rebounds) have been effective on the glass. Cavataio, a transfer from St. John's, leads Holy Cross with 13.3 points per game.

The Minutemen could be helped by the return of junior big man Hashim "Big City" Bailey, who is expected to some playing time against the Crusaders after missing Wednesday's game with a nagging groin injury.

The Crusaders, who were picked to win the Patriot League in the conference's preseason poll, stumbled at the start of the season under new coach Sean Kearney. They lost their first six games to Harvard, Saint Joseph's, Loyola, Rhode Island, UNLV and Western Michigan before bouncing back to beat Marist and Brown.

"They're still working some kinks out with a new coach," Kellogg said. "They've been in just about every game and have played a tough schedule."

NOTES: Holy Cross is 12-7 against the Atlantic 10 over the last 10 years.

The Crusaders are 6-13 all-time at the DCU Center, formerly the Worcester Centrum.

The Minutemen are 8-1 at the building, with the only loss 78-65 to Holy Cross on Nov. 25, 2000. That is the last time that UMass played there.

Kellogg was 5-0 as a player in the DCU Center, which was then called the Centrum.

Saturday's game is part of a two-for-one series that began last year. The Crusaders came to the Mullins Center in 2008 and will be back next season.

Hope for Minutemen lies in their youth
By Bill Doyle, The Worcester Telegram, 12/4/2009

At 28, UMass radio voice Josh Maurer knows what it means to be young.

Maurer is the youngest play-by-play announcer in the Atlantic 10 and he believes he’s the youngest in any major college conference in the nation.

So when he says the young UMass basketball team needs time to mature, he knows what he’s talking about.

The Minutemen, who visit Holy Cross at 3:30 p.m. tomorrow at the DCU Center, play four freshmen and two transfer students regularly. Two freshmen start. Leading scorer Ricky Harris is one of only two seniors and the only one who plays much at all.

So while their 3-4 record, which includes a 106-68 loss to No. 2 ranked Michigan State, may be disappointing, Maurer said it shouldn’t be much of a surprise.

“At the Atlantic 10 level,” Maurer said, “there are very few times you see a freshman come in the first month and actually help lead teams to victories.”

Second-year UMass coach Derek Kellogg has repeatedly asked for patience as he tries to rebuild the Minutemen.

“I think UMass fans owe him that much,” said Maurer, who is also in his second year at UMass. “This is the first recruiting class that he has personally brought in. I don’t think it’s right for anybody to be passing judgment at this point. I think it will be a different looking team probably in February than what you’ve seen on the court in November.”

Kellogg coached the Minutemen to a 12-18 record last season, a far cry from when he played the point during the UMass glory days under John Calipari in the 1990s. UMass reached the Final Four in 1996, but hasn’t qualified for the NCAA Tournament since 1998.

Maurer doesn’t think it’s fair to compare UMass teams to those that Calipari coached because improved scouting services make recruiting so much more sophisticated and difficult today.

“Fewer guys slip through the cracks like Marcus Camby did,” Maurer said.

Terrell Vinson, a 6-foot-7 freshman from Baltimore, certainly isn’t another Camby, but many UMass fans believe he could be another Lou Roe, also a star under Calipari.

“It’s too early to tell if he’s that kind of player,” Maurer said, “but for UMass to hope to find a Lou Roe as a freshman now is kind of far-fetched.”

Nevertheless, Maurer likes what he’s seen so far of Vinson, who has started every game and averages 8.4 points, and he thinks the Minutemen can mature into a good team.

“The passion has obviously been here in the past,” Maurer said. “Once Derek gets this thing turned around, we all hope that the Valley can get electrified like that again and pack the Mullins Center.”

The Pioneer Valley isn’t electrified yet. The Minutemen have averaged only 2,815 fans for their four home games in this tough economy.

“I try not to think about how many people are listening,” Maurer said. “I just try to think of the one person who may be and do the best job for him.”

Hopefully, it’s more than one.

HC has an experienced team, but the Crusaders are still fighting to overcome their 0-6 start under first-year coach Sean Kearney. They’ve won their last two games, but drew only 1,400 fans at the Hart Center for Monday’s win over Marist. Obviously, HC hopes for a bigger crowd tomorrow.

Bob Fouracre, who will call tomorrow’s game on WWFX (100.1 FM) in Worcester, missed five of HC’s first six basketball defeats while calling HC football, but the team is 2-0 since he returned.

“The kids love me,” Fouracre said. “They play for me, not for the school. There’s something about the sound of my voice throughout an arena that inspires them when they run by and hear their name called by me.”

Turning serious, Fouracre attributed HC’s slow start to adjusting to Kearney’s up-tempo offense and man-to-man defense.

Maurer will call tomorrow’s game on WCRN (830 AM) in Worcester with UMass associate athletic director Tim Kenney, the regular analyst on road games, and Tim Collins, who normally works home games. Collins walked on at UMass under Steve Lappas.

“We give him a hard time about this all the time,” Maurer said. “His career point total is the same as yours and mine. He had zero career points, but he was a good attitude guy on the bench.”

A win tomorrow would improve the attitude at either UMass or HC.

Team Effort Gives UMass 84-63 Hoop Win At Holy Cross
Harris (19) and Gurley (18) lead Minutemen to 4-4 overall mark
From UMass Athletics, 12/5/2009

WORCESTER, Mass. - UMass put together its best all-around effort of the season in a wire-to-wire win over state rival Holy Cross on Saturday afternoon at the DCU Center, 84-63. Ricky Harris led the Minutemen (4-4 overall) with 19 and Anthony Gurley added 18. Both players have scored in double-figures in every game this season. UMass shot 50 percent from the floor, 46 from beyond the 3-point arc and 83 percent (10-of-12) from the foul line. The Minutemen tied a season-best 12 3-pointers. The Crusaders (2-7 overall) were held to just 36 percent from the floor by a stout UMass defense.

UMass got contributions from many sources in different areas. Junior Hashim Bailey had his first field goals of the season, grabbed a career-high eight rebounds and blocked three shots as he returned from an injury. Freshman Freddie Riley canned two 3-pointers and finished with 12 points. Harris, played a lot much of game at points guard had six assists. David Gibbs had seven points, a career-high tying five rebounds and three assists.

Holy Cross' top scorer Mike Cavataio, who came in averaging 13.3 points, was limited to just seven points.

The Minutemen played their best half of the season in the first half, outscoring Holy Cross, 49-34. They continued to maintain a lead of at least seven in the second half and cruised the rest of the way.

After the Crusaders got to within seven points at 57-50, UMass went on a 11-0 run including an alley-oop dunk by Sean Carter on a pass from Gary Correia and a 3-pointer by Correia with 8:10 left in regulation. A Freddie Riley 3-ball gave UMass its largest lead of the game to that point at 68-50 with 7:45 left. The Minutemen continued to roll. Gurley hit three straight wing lay-ups to give UMass a 74-54 lead with 4:59 left.

Holy Cross opened the second half scoring the first seven points of the half to cut UMass' lead to 49-41. Harris nailed an NBA-length 3-pointer to end the 9-0 run that extended to the end of the first half.

The Minutemen had their highest scoring first half of the year in taking a 49-34 lead at intermission. It was UMass' most points in the first 20 minutes since netting 57 at Fordham last February. Harris led all players with 14 points as UMass shot 52 percent from the floor (17-of-33). Harris' three free throws with 1:08 left in the first half, gave UMass its largest lead of the half at 49-32.

UMass made all eight free throws in the first half and turned the ball over just five times, while outrebounding Holy Cross, 20-14.

UMass made four 3-pointers in a 2:30 span to build a 10-7 lead to 21-7 with 13:13 left in the first half. Riley's 3-pointer finished up an 11-0 run.

UMass continues its two-game road swing at Seton Hall on Monday night at 7 p.m.

UMass cleans glass in road win
By Matt Vautour, Daily Hampshire Gazette Staff Writer, 12/7/2009

WORCESTER - The best performance this season by the University of Massachusetts men's basketball team was far too much for Holy Cross to handle Saturday at the DCU Center.

The Minutemen got contributions from up and down their roster as 11 players scored and they cruised past the Crusaders 84-63 for their first road win of the season.

"I thought it was a good game for us against a tough Holy Cross team on the road," UMass coach Derek Kellogg said. "I thought we played with a purpose and shared the ball. I'm happy that we won. We're going to continue to push forward and get better."

After getting crushed on the boards against Quinnipiac in a 62-58 win on Wednesday, Kellogg spent Thursday and Friday emphasizing rebounding.

The message sunk in. Against a Crusader team that had thrived on the glass this season, UMass won the rebounding battle 41-32.

"When you continue to preach it, hopefully they buy in and I thought our guys did a nice job tonight," Kellogg said.

Helping significantly was the return of Hashim "Big City" Bailey, who played the best game of his college career after missing Wednesday's game with a groin injury. He had a game-high eight rebounds to go with three blocked shots and provided a defensive presence that frustrated Holy Cross inside.

"Hashim helped us. He clogged the paint on defense and was big and physical - which is what I want him to do - and (he) rebounded the ball," Kellogg said. "He's still not 100 percent health-wise and he's 75 percent in shape."

Bailey said he was glad to contribute.

"I feel real good, coming off this injury and giving the team a boost off the bench," he said. "I have to get healthier, stronger, better."

UMass (4-4) made a season-high 12 3-pointers on 26 tries in the game, including four in just over two minutes during a 16-2 run that put the Minutemen up 21-7 with 13 minutes, 14 seconds left in the first half. UMass appeared headed to an easy win.

But after the teams traded baskets, the Crusaders (2-7) scored nine straight against the Minuteman bench to make the score 23-18 with 9:29 left. But the home team never got closer. UMass stretched its edge back to double figures and led 49-34 at halftime.

The Minutemen, who have had trouble putting teams away all season, started slowly in the second half as Holy Cross cut its deficit to seven on a layup by Eric Meister with 12:55 left. Gary Correia fouled him on the play, but Meister missed the free throw.

At the other end, Correia found Anthony Gurley open for a 3-pointer and after a block by Bailey, Correia hit Sean Carter for an alley-oop that pushed the UMass lead back to 12. It started a 9-0 Minuteman run that put the game out of reach.

Harris had 19 points and six assists for UMass, Gurley added 28 points and five rebounds and Freddie Riley scored 12 points off the bench.

The Minutemen remain on the road with a game at Seton Hall at 7 tonight.

Minutemen hoop to face Seton Hall
By Matt Vautour, Daily Hampshire Gazette Staff Writer, 12/7/2009

AMHERST - The University of Massachusetts men's basketball team won't get to savor Saturday's 84-63 win over Holy Cross for very long.

The Minutemen (4-4) head to Newark, N.J., for a game against Seton Hall at the Prudential Center at 7 tonight.

The Pirates, who did not play over the weekend, are 6-0 heading into the game. While most of their opponents hardly stand out, Seton Hall earned an 89-79 win on the road at Cornell. That was the same Big Red team that had defeated the Minutemen 74-61 in Amherst two days earlier.

"I've watched their scores a bunch and I know how they play," UMass coach Derek Kellogg said. "They're going to press the full 40 minutes, get up on you and be tough.

"It'll be a good test for our guys - let's see how they respond," he added. "I would say Seton Hall is an NCAA Tournament team, a good Big East team with older, more mature guys.

"I'm excited to play," Kellogg said. "I think our guys are playing well. They're sharing the ball and competing. Can they do the same things against Seton Hall? We'll see.

The Pirates have five players scoring in double figures led by junior guard Jeremy Hazell, who is averaging 19.7 points per game. New Mexico State transfer Herb Pope, a 6-foot-8 forward, is averaging 13.3 points and 11.2 rebounds per game.

"Hazell is probably a first-round pick (in the NBA draft) and if Pope keeps playing the way he can, he's probably a lottery pick," Kellogg said.

UMass junior big man Hashim "Big City" Bailey, who is from nearby Paterson, N.J., said he is looking forward to the game.

"I'm really looking forward to this," he said. "All my family and my friends are going to be there. I'm glad to play this game."

GIBBS SHINES - Sophomore David Gibbs had seven points, five rebounds and four assists against Holy Cross as he continued to play with more confidence since Ricky Harris took over primary ball-handling responsibilities.

"I thought that was David Gibbs' best game since he's been here," Kellogg said. "He looked aggressive and absolutely into the game."

HARRIS HONORED - Harris was named the Atlantic 10 coplayer of the week with senior forward Damian Hollis of George Washington.

Harris recorded identical lines of 19 points and six assists in the Minutemen's wins over Quinnipiac and the Crusaders last week.

Harris was three-for-three from the foul line against Holy Cross and now has 308 free throws in his career. He is tied with Marcus Camby at No. 10 on the all-time UMass list.

KELLOGG PERFECT IN WORCESTER - The win kept Kellogg perfect in the DCU Center (formerly the Centrum) as a player and a coach.

When Kellogg played for the Minutemen, they beat Syracuse there in the NCAA Tournament in his freshman year and won regular-season games against DePaul, Holy Cross and Louisville.

UMass is 9-1 all time in the building.

MISCELLANEOUS - The Minutemen's 49 points in the first half were a season high and the most since UMass scored 57 against Fordham on Feb. 11.

UMass feels right at home
By Jennifer Toland, The Worcester Telegram, 12/6/2009

WORCESTER — Before yesterday, UMass hadn’t played at the DCU Center since 2000, when it was still called the Centrum. Through the years, the Minutemen loved the building so much, they called it their home away from home.

UMass ran its record to 9-1 here with yesterday’s 84-63 win over Holy Cross.

“Every time we’ve come to Worcester, it’s been fantastic,” said coach Derek Kellogg, who played for the Minutemen from 1992-95 and was on the team that won two NCAA tournament games here in ’92. “It’s almost like a second home and hopefully we’ll have continued success here in the future.”

Senior guard Ricky Harris led UMass with 19 points and 6 assists while junior guard Anthony Gurley added 18 points. The backcourt duo combined to make 13 of 22 shots from the field.

After a pair of losses in the Legends Classic late last month, including a 38-point setback to Michigan State, UMass (4-4) has won back-to-back games.

Holy Cross (2-7) seemed to gain some confidence in Wednesday’s come-from-behind overtime win at Brown, but the Crusaders struggled on defense and shot a season-low 36 percent.

The Minutemen made 50 percent of their field-goal attempts and were 12 of 26 from 3-point territory. Harris and Gurley each buried timely and momentum-shifting 3s early in the second half.

UMass is the fourth team to score 80 or more points against HC this season.

“Coach Kellogg was gracious to me after the game and felt it was one of their better games of the season, maybe their best,” Holy Cross coach Sean Kearney said. “I take some minor consolation in that, but it concerns me sometimes (that) defensively we help teams play their best game.”

HC fell to 0-3 against Atlantic 10 teams this year. The Crusaders are 6-14 all time at the DCU Center.

The Minutemen’s only loss here came to HC in 2000. UMass played a regular-season game in the facility every year from 1993-97.

Holy Cross trailed by 15 at halftime, but scored the first seven points of the second on baskets by Eric Meister, R.J. Evans and Andrew Beinert. The Crusaders had a chance to cut the lead to six with just over 17 minutes left, but missed three straight layups on the same possession. At the other end, Harris banged down one of his four 3-pointers and UMass went up, 52-41.

The Crusaders hung in over the next five minutes and had a chance to get it to six again. Meister made a layup, was fouled and went to the line, but missed the free throw (HC was 18 of 29) and this time Gurley nailed a 3 to put the Minutemen ahead, 60-50, with 12:17 to go. HC got no closer the rest of the game.

“We made a little run and we thought we had some energy,” said Evans, who led HC with 18 points. “And then they hit some tough 3s and took our momentum away. We have to learn to play through tough times during games, play through other teams’ runs so we can come back and stay in the game.”

Kearney was disappointed in his team’s start. UMass got out in transition early and used a 16-2 run to take a 21-7 lead seven minutes in. UMass made four 3s during the spurt.

Beinert made a 3 to start a 9-0 HC run and Evans’ free throw got the Crusaders back within five with 9:29 left. Harris and freshmen Terrell Vinson and Freddie Riley keyed the Minutemen late in the first half and UMass led, 49-34, at the break.

HC missed seven layups in the first half.

Sophomore forward Mike Cavataio, HC’s leading scorer, had his chin banged up after colliding with UMass big man Hashim Bailey (6-foot-10, 275) and didn’t play the final six minutes of the first half. Senior forward Adam May came out late after suffering a knee injury.

Holy Cross had been outrebounding opponents by five a game, but yesterday UMass won the battle of the boards, 41-32. The Minutemen were outrebounded by Quinnipiac, 46-29, in a win earlier this week.

“Coach preached about rebounding all week,” Harris said. “We were beaten pretty badly by Quinnipiac. It could have been better (against Holy Cross), and it will get better.”

Beinert and junior forward Andrew Keister each added 12 points for Holy Cross.


UMass packs a 1-2 punch
Backcourt thrives against Crusaders
By Michael Vega Boston Globe Staff, 12/6/2009

WORCESTER - When the final horn sounded on the University of Massachusetts’ 84-63 victory over Holy Cross yesterday at the DCU Center, UMass coach Derek Kellogg approached Crusaders first-year coach Sean Kearney to offer his consolation. Kellogg explained the Minutemen had simply put forth one of their finer - if not finest - efforts of this young season.

“I take some minor consolation in that, but it concerns me that sometimes defensively we help teams play their best game,’’ said Kearney, whose Crusaders (2-7) lost for the third time this season to an Atlantic 10 opponent after setbacks to Saint Joseph’s (69-67) Nov. 17 and Rhode Island (92-75) Nov. 22.

“I think this is a very talented group,’’ said Kearney of the Minutemen. “I think it starts for them with two older, very talented guards in [Ricky] Harris and [Anthony] Gurley. And it kind of went from there.’’

Adapting to his recent shift to point guard, Harris led the Minutemen (4-4) with 19 points on 6-for-10 shooting from the field, hitting 4 of 6 from the 3-point arc, to go with six assists and four turnovers. Gurley, the former Newton North standout, added 18 points on 7-for-12 shooting, including 2 of 3 on treys, five rebounds, and three assists to help UMass record its second consecutive win after a 62-58 victory over Quinnipiac Wednesday in Amherst.

“In the beginning it was kind of tough to adjust to, because I was so used to playing off the ball,’’ said Harris, who supplanted sophomore David Gibbs at the point in the second half of an 83-75 loss to Rutgers Nov. 27. “But now I kind of have gotten used to it because it makes it a lot easier because the ball’s in my hand and I don’t have to worry about getting open or getting denied.

“After a while I kind of adjusted to it, embraced it, and now I kind of like it.’’

Gibbs responded to his reassignment by becoming the Minutemen’s defensive stopper. Yesterday, Gibbs, who had 7 points to go with five rebounds, put the clamps on R.J. Evans, who led the Crusaders with 18 points on 6-for-14 shooting, but was held to just 2 points (on a pair of foul shots) over the final 7:26 before fouling out with 21 seconds to go.

“Whatever works for the team, I just want to win,’’ said Gibbs. “I love defense. If you shut down their best player, it’s going to make it a lot easier for us to win.’’

The Minutemen outrebounded Holy Cross, 41-32, and were aided by the massive presence of Hashim Bailey. The 6-foot-10-inch, 275-pound junior center from Paterson, N.J., overcame a groin injury that had slowed him in previous games and finally lived up to his nickname of “Big City’’ by grabbing a game-high eight rebounds and recording three of the team’s four blocked shots, the last two of which denied lane penetrations by Evans.

“Nobody can go through me,’’ Bailey quipped. “I’m too big.’’

“When a player that big is in the middle, you always have thoughts in the back of your head that, ‘He’s definitely going to hit me when I go up,’ ’’ Evans said. “You think about it and you change your shot. But we kept going hard. We just weren’t finishing.’’

And that was precisely what plagued Holy Cross. The Crusaders failed time and again to finish the easy baskets they worked so hard to get. UMass, which never trailed, led, 49-34, at intermission, but the Crusaders opened the second half with a spirited 7-point spurt, capped by Andrew Beinert’s 3-pointer that pulled them within 49-41 with 17:34 to go.

Gurley, however, twice answered with treys to keep the Crusaders at bay, the second giving UMass a 60-50 lead. The Minutemen never let Holy Cross get any closer than that.

“I think it’s definitely a sign that our team is progressing and that we’re becoming more mature,’’ Gurley said. “Usually in the past, we’d come out flat in the second half and we’d give up the lead and teams would get an even bigger lead on us. This game we were able to sustain our run and get an even bigger lead.’’

UMass on point
Ricky Harris paces Minutemen
By Rich Thompson, The Boston Herald, 12/6/2009

WORCESTER - Ricky Harris has taken on greater responsibilities, while doing less work, since converting to the point position late last month.

Harris played liked two guards in one in yesterday’s 84-63 UMass win over Holy Cross at the DCU Center. He hit 6-of-10 shots from the floor, including four 3-pointers, and dished out six assists.

“In the beginning it was kind of tough to adjust to (playing the point) because I was used to playing off the ball,” Harris said. “I kind of got used to it because it makes it a lot easier now that I have the ball in my hands. Now I don’t have to worry about getting open or being denied.”

Harris and off guard Anthony Gurley have evolved into the top scoring combination for the Minutemen (4-4). Gurley picked up his game in the second half against the Crusaders (2-7) to finish with 18 points.

With the Harris-Gurley tandem in command on the offensive end, UMass shot 50 percent from the floor, including 12-of-26 treys (46.2 percent). The Minutemen outrebounded the Crusaders, 41-32, and forward David Gibbs and center Hashim Bailey starred on the defensive end by limiting Holy Cross to 35.6 percent shooting.

“I thought it was a good game for us against a tough Holy Cross team on the road,” UMass coach Derek Kellogg said. “The guys came out with a purpose (yesterday), shared the basketball and I thought it was one of our better defensive performances, even though it wasn’t perfect.”

Trailing by 15 at halftime, guards R.J. Evans (18 points) and Andrew Beinert (12) sparked a Holy Cross run. Beinert cut the Minutemen lead to 49-41 with a 3.

But Harris busted the Crusaders run with a 3-pointer at 16:51. Gurley then took over with a pair of treys and three drives during a 10-minute stretch that put UMass ahead 74-54.

“We made a little run and we thought we had our energy,” Evans said. “Harris hit a 3 and it took all our momentum away.”


Minutemen defeat Holy Cross in DCU Center
By Geena Lombardi, Massachusetts Daily Collegian Staff, 12/6/2009

WORCESTER, Mass. — Building on momentum from a victory over Quinnipiac, the Massachusetts men’s basketball team defeated Holy Cross at the DCU Center this Saturday. UMass came into the game with an 8-1 record at the facility, along with defeating the Crusaders 73-59 at last year’s matchup.

The Minutemen (4-4) had a dominating first half, taking an early 5-0 lead and maintaining a lead for the entire game. At the 15 minute, 36 second mark, Ricky Harris hit a 3-point shot to put UMass on a strong offensive run that led to 11 unanswered points. Harris was 6-for-10 on the night with a team leading 19 points, 12 of which came from 3-point range

. “It’s just confidence I guess. They left me open, in the beginning of the game they were denying me extra hard. I got a couple good looks and transitions and was confident in knocking them down,” Harris said.

Anthony Gurley also served as an offensive threat, scoring seven field goals and two 3-pointers. Gurley closely followed Harris for the team lead with 18 points. The two guards had a combined 25 baskets for the night. The Minutemen as a whole scored 12 3-pointers, compared to three by Holy Cross (2-7), proving to be an important part in the victory.

UMass coach Derek Kellogg felt satisfied with his guards’ performance and leadership of the team.

“They have the ball in their hands probably 70 percent of the time and they’re making good plays and scoring and doing what I’m asking them,” Kellogg said.

Holy Cross struggled offensively in the first half, partly due to an injury to leading scorer Mike Cavataio, which limited his playing time. Cavataio, who is 37-for-74 in field goals this year, contributed just one basket in the first half. It was Andrew Keister and R.J. Evans, who stepped up for the Crusaders with a combined seven baskets, over half of the team’s 11 of the period.

Holy Cross came alive with eight minutes remaining and lowered Massachusetts’ lead to eight points. However they could not close the gap any further. The Minutemen continued their offensive attack until the final minutes of the first half, going into the locker room with a 49-34 lead.

“We made shots. When you make shots that really helps, and I thought that gave us some momentum and enabled us to get Holy Cross to play a little faster,” Kellogg said.

Holy Cross continued chasing UMass’ lead into the second half, coming within seven points at the 12:55 mark. A 3-pointer at the 12:23 mark by Gurley revived his team’s offense and put them on another 11-point run. The Minutemen kept at least a 16-point lead for the remainder of the game, taking the 84-63 victory.

Gurley felt as though this game marked an improvement in UMass’ ability to gain a lead and maintain it for the entire game.

“Usually in the past we come out flat in the second half and either give up the lead or teams get an even bigger lead on us,” Gurley said. “But this game we were able to sustain a little run and just keep our lead.”

Holy Cross held an advantage in rebounds coming into the game, averaging 38 boards per game. However, UMass’ defense turned the numbers around with 33 defensive rebounds, 11 more the Crusaders. Cavataio, who led his team in rebounds with an average of 13.3 per game, was held to three rebounds by the Minutemen. Hashim Bailey, returning from an injury, had a team-leading eight boards and three blocks, something Kellogg contributed as a main reason for shutting down the Crusaders.

The Minutemen also took advantage of free-throw opportunities, achieving a perfect 8-for-8 in the first half and 10-for-12 overall. Holy Cross struggled inform the line, connecting with only 18-of-29 free throws.

“I thought it was a good game for us, a tough Holy Cross team on the road,” Kellogg said. “Our guys came out and played with a purpose tonight, and we really shared the ball tonight.”

UMass will travel next to New Jersey on Monday night to face undefeated Seton Hall.

Hashim Bailey working his way a significant role with UMass
By David Brinch, Massachusetts Daily Collegian Staff, 12/6/2009

WORCESTER, Mass. — One of the bigger questions that surrounded center Hashim Bailey’s effectiveness was how long he can play without getting tired.

At Memphis, he never averaged more than three minutes per game and was well over 300 pounds. He was still out of shape when he transferred to Massachusetts to play for the men’s basketball team, but worked with the coaching staff to get into playing shape and lose weight.

After a year of redshirting for UMass (4-4), Bailey trimmed down to 275 and now averages 15.4 minutes per game, but coach Derek Kellogg still has concerns over his fatigue and some rust that might have come from sitting out last season.

Even with the increase of playing time, production didn’t necessarily follow. Bailey gave the Minutemen some size in the paint early on, but got in foul trouble quickly and lacked the stamina to play more than 10 minutes.

To make matters worse, Bailey battled a groin pull that slowed his progress over the season. Despite not feeling anywhere close to 100 percent, the redshirt junior played through his injury, which paid off in the short term.

When UMass played Michigan State, Bailey was one of the few bright spots in its 106-68 loss. He played 25 minutes and finished with seven rebounds.

Kellogg said Bailey got his first start at center against the Spartans simply because of the experience he adds. The usual starting center, Sean Carter, moved to power forward in place of Sampson Carter.

“Our best lineup is usually when you have more mature guys out there,” Kellogg said.

However, playing the most minutes in his collegiate career against MSU had a cost. Bailey aggravated his injury and sat out Dec. 2 against Quinnipiac.

Sitting out of the game turned out to be all Bailey needed to have an impressive performance against Holy Cross.

After having a successful practice on Friday, Bailey said that he felt good enough to play.

“He basically said he can go, and when he started going, I didn’t stop him,” Kellogg said.

Kellogg said that he saw Bailey’s conditioning improve against the Crusaders (2-7) and that he is now producing for the Minutemen. Bailey finished with a game-high eight rebounds and three blocks in 16 minutes.

“Having another big guy in there really helped us,” Kellogg said. “He looked like the man in the paint.”

Although Bailey felt good enough to play almost 20 minutes, he doesn’t feel completely recovered. He hopes that as he improves his conditioning over the season, he’ll play an even bigger role with the team.

The Memphis transfer is steadily getting more playing time and is starting to prove that he might reach Kellogg’s goal of 20 minutes if he can stay healthy.

“I feel really good,” Bailey said. “I just have to get healthier, stronger, and better.”

Overall, Bailey feels encouraged by his progress at the beginning of the season and feels that he can be one of the best players on the floor representing the Minutemen.

UMass to face Seton Hall

If Kellogg and Co. aren’t well acquainted with competitive Big East teams, they will by Monday night.

The Minutemen will face their second team from the conference in three weeks as they face undefeated Seton Hall.

After a 12th place finish and a 7-11 conference record during the 2008-09 season, the Pirates (6-0) are having one of the most successful seasons against non-conference opponents compared to other Big East teams.

Seton Hall is one of five teams in the conference with an undefeated record and has blown out opponents in its last three games with an average margin of 34 points. Its last win came against Hartford at home in an 89-56 win.

The Pirates also beat Cornell by 10 points on Nov. 20, shortly after the Big Red defeated the Minutemen at the Mullins Center.

UMass hopes that Seton Hall’s victory over Cornell isn’t indicative of its fate when it becomes Pirates’ fourth straight visitor.

On paper, Kellogg knows that trying to hand Seton Hall its first loss of the season is going to be a challenge because of its experience, so he wants to make sure his team is well-rested for Monday.

“I would say Seton Hall is an NCAA Tournament team,” Kellogg said. “[It is] probably a good Big East team that has older, more mature guys. If you look at the age of the guys, there is probably a pretty good point differential, which is good for our guys to go and see how they stack up.”

The Pirates are led by shooting guard Jeremy Hazell, who averages 19.7 points per game, and someone who Kellogg describes as a potential NBA first-round draft pick.

He also praised forward Herb Pope’s (13.3 points, 11.2 rebounds) talent. Popo, who transferred from New Mexico State, is shooting at least 50 percent in field goals and 3-pointers.

As much as Kellogg feels inexperience will be a problem against the Pirates, he feels that the Minutemen are much more prepared than they were the last time they went to New Jersey against a Big East team.

“I’m excited [to play Seton Hall] because they’re playing well,” Kellogg said. “They’re sharing the ball and competing.”

The last team to play UMass from that conference is Rutgers, who took control for much of the game until the new point guard, Ricky Harris, scored 20 second-half points to help cut the lead to four.

During that game, Kellogg believes the reason why his team never pulled ahead was because it didn’t play with a sense of urgency, but expects that won’t be a problem on Monday night.
