Muskies fall to UMass, 80-73

Posted by Josh on Wednesday, February 22, 2012 Under: Game Recaps, Notes, Previews, etc.
We looked awful out of the gate at UMass.  10 turnovers in the first 4 1/2 minutes of the game.  And as bad as we started, we were leading for a quite a bit of the first half.  But, our poor play caught up to us quickly and UMass started to knock down shots.

Our lead was quickly erased and a big run to close the half put UMass up 12 at halftime.  We were down by as much as 20 in the second half and cut it down to 8, but then traded baskets with the Minutemen down the stretch.  Chaz Williams for UMass was unstoppable, finishing with 29 pts and going 6-8 on 3-pointers. It wasn't XU's night as Tu went 2-11 and Lyons went 6-18.  The bright spots: Wells had a season-high 19 points, Frease had 12pts/8reb off the bench, and Redford had 8 points in just 12 minutes of play.

This loss certainly puts the Muskies squarely on the bubble.  With 3 games to go and then the A-10 tourney, we likely need to win every game or all but one game to ensure we go dancing in March.

Go Muskies!
