 +//No. 25 Minutemen tops Rams//\\
 +By Joe Burris, [[http://​www.boston.com/​globe|Boston Globe]] Staff, 3/5/1992
 +
 +AMHERST -- They told [[calipari_john|John Calipari]] not to even bother showing up.
 +
 +After the Massachusetts basketball coach vowed Monday to walk off the
 +floor before last night'​s game if any fan made references to the current
 +gambling allegations levied at Rhode Island, some people told coach Cal not
 +to leave home, because college kids wouldn'​t resist painting at least one
 +off-color sign.
 +
 +But Calipari showed up, spoke to UMass fans over the public address
 +system before the game and stuck around after no taunting was heard. The
 +Minutemen were fortunate that he did stay; 25th-ranked UMass struggled
 +with its scrappy Atlantic 10 foe for most of the first half and trailed by 1
 +point with 14:37 left. Calipari called time out and delivered a tongue-lashing,​
 +and his team responded with a 14-0 run, then held on for a 96-88 win.
 +
 +The victory in the regular-season finale improved UMass' record to 25-4
 +overall, 13-3 in the league. The win total eclipses by two the previous
 +school record, set by the [[erving_julius|Julius Erving]]-led 1970-71 team. Having won the
 +Atlantic 10 regular-season title, UMass will be the top seed in this
 +weekend'​s league tournament. UMass will play Sunday against the winner
 +of Saturday'​s St. Bonaventure-Rutgers game.
 +
 +Rhode Island, which has played well in the wake of the allegations,​ fell to
 +19-8 and 9-7. The Rams are seeded fourth in the tournament and will meet
 +George Washington in the first round.
 +
 +Calipari praised the effort of the Rams, who hardly looked like the team
 +blown out by UMass in January. Trailing, 43-38, they outscored UMass,
 +13-7, to start the second half and took a 51-50 lead with 14:37 left.
 +
 +"For URI coach [[skinner_al|Al Skinner]] to get his team to play as they have shows he
 +has done an outstanding job," said Calipari, "and that should get him coach
 +of the year honors."​
 +
 +Skinner, a UMass grad, said he was appreciative that Calipari "put
 +himself on the line" with his pregame remarks and added, "With this being
 +my alma mater, I would have been disappointed if the fans acted negatively
 +toward my club for any reason. Fans up here have always cheered for the
 +home team, never against the opposition."​
 +
 +UMass looked too much like it did the last time it cracked the Top 25 poll
 +-- Jan. 6. That was a first for the school, but the Minutemen lost their next
 +[[game19920108_west_virginia|game to West Virginia]] two days later at home.
 +
 +"That kept flashing back in my mind," said senior guard Anton Brown, who
 +took matters into his own hands after Calipari called the timeout. Brown
 +dished out an assist to junior center [[williams_harper|Harper Williams]] (who scored on a fast-
 +break layup) to get the run going, then scored 7 consecutive points to put
 +UMass up, 59-51, with 12:55 left. Senior forward [[herndon_will|Will Herndon]] and
 +freshman guard [[malloy_jerome|Jerome Malloy]] capped the run with a bucket apiece, putting
 +UMass up, 64-51, with 11:44 to go.
 +
 +"The difference between this game and the West Virginia game is that no
 +one stepped up against West Virginia,"​ said Calipari. "In the first half, [[mccoy_jim|Jim
 +McCoy]] and Will carried us. In the second half, Anton and Harper carried
 +us, and that shows our depth."​
 +
 +URI cut the lead to 5 in the last three minutes, but the Minutemen hit 10 of
 +their last 13 free throws to seal the win. Brown led UMass with 22 points.
 +URI center Jeff Kent led all scorers with a career-high 35.
 +
 +Skinner said he was pleased that his team has continued to play well in the
 +wake of the allegations of an on-campus gambling ring. "We have been
 +resilient, when you consider the youth on this ball club," he said. "We didn't
 +win but we continued to come at them."
 +
 +Calipari said he had no doubt he would be in the gym to coach his team.
 +“People say you can't tell college kids what to do, but I say that's wrong,"​
 +he said. "If I don't say anything, I'm not doing my job, and should be fired."​
