 +**Minutemen beat back Rutgers**\\
 +By Joe Burris, [[http://​​globe|Boston Globe]] Staff, 3/9/1992
 +PHILADELPHIA -- [[calipari_john|John Calipari]] flashed a look of relief. The University
 +of Massachusetts coach had just walked off the floor following his team's
 +106-94 win over Rutgers last night in the quarterfinals of the Atlantic 10
 +tournament, but he would have been the first to admit the game was far
 +closer than the score indicated.
 +Calipari must be getting used to the feeling; it seems that each opponent has
 +given a bit extra against the top-seeded Minutemen -- particularly during the
 +latter part of the season, when UMass struggled to beat teams it had
 +handled easily earlier in the year. Last night, eighth-seeded Rutgers, which
 +suffered two blowouts to UMass in the regular season ([[game19920130_rutgers|77-66 on January 30]], and [[game19920218_rutgers|81-67 on February 18]]), was no different.
 +The Scarlet Knights led by 6 points midway though the first half, then cut a
 +13-point halftime deficit to 5 with 17:40 to go. But UMass' pressure
 +defense finally wore Rutgers down, and the Minutemen pulled away over
 +the last 10 minutes. UMass (26-4) faces [[opponent_rhode_island|Rhode Island]] in the semifinals
 +tonight at 9. URI defeated [[opponent_george_washington|George Washington University]],​ 75-66,
 +"It seems that in every game people are coming after us," said Calipari.
 +“Rutgers played a good game. In the second half, they came back because
 +we thought we could just win by standing there."​
 +Trailing, 57-44, Rutgers outscored UMass, 14-6, at the start of the half,
 +cutting the deficit to 63-58 with 17:40 to go. UMass withstood the rally
 +with better defense, and Jim McCoy scored 7 unanswered points, giving the
 +Minutemen a 70-58 advantage with 16:01 left.
 +The Minutemen blew a big opportunity to break the game open midway
 +through the second half when they hit just five of 12 free-throw attempts,
 +missing six in a row. Rutgers could not close the gap while UMass
 +floundered at the line, and the Minutemen began to pull away shortly
 +afterward. A pullup jumper by Tony Barbee (21 points) gave UMass a
 +97-81 edge with 4:04 to go.
 +"We knew that at some time they were going to come back," said McCoy,
 +who finished with 21 points. "But we just did what we had to do."
 +Rutgers, which got 32 points from Steve Worthy, hurt itself with two
 +technical fouls and several missed shots down the stretch. It cut the lead to
 +100-90 in the final minute but could come no closer. "Give UMass credit;
 +they found answers to everything we did," said Rutgers coach Bob Wenzel,
 +whose team finished at 15-14.
 +The UMass players said it felt good to get the first win. But they seem to
 +enjoy being the hunter more than the hunted. "In the past, we weren'​t
 +expected to do much," said [[brown_anton|Anton Brown]]. "Now, we're the top seed, and
 +people just expect us to beat up on everyone."​
 +Next up, URI, a team that gave UMass [[game19920304_rhode_island|a battle last week]] after [[game19920120_rhode_island|losing
 +handily earlier in the season]].
