SPRINGFIELD - Tony Barbee scored a career-high 31 points as the Minutemen won their third consecutive Abdow's championship in front of a capacity crowd of more than 8,000.
The Minutemen jumped out to a 40-29 halftime lead, and after South Carolina closed within nine early in the second half, UMass took off. A 10-2 run made things more comfortable for the team, as they won their host tournament for the third time in three years.
Barbee shot 11-13 from the field and hit his first eight shots without a miss. For his efforts, he was named Abdow tournament MVP. Lou Roe was also named to the All-Tournament team.
