Miami (Fla.) vs Massachusetts

Miami 75, UMass 62

  •  

AMHERST, Mass. (AP) - Reggie Johnson scored 19 points and grabbed 13 rebounds as Miami pulled away in the second half to defeat Massachusetts 75-62 Saturday for its fourth straight victory.

The Hurricanes (5-1) led for most of the second half, but a 3-pointer by Raphiael Putney, followed by a driving layup by Jesse Morgan, put the Minutemen (3-3) ahead 52-51 with 8:29 remaining.

But a 3-pointer by Rion Brown started a 13-3 run that gave the Hurricanes a 64-55 lead, their biggest of the game to that point, with 5:01 remaining.

In Miami's 67-59 upset of No. 13 Michigan State on Wednesday, the Spartans clogged the middle to prevent the 6-foot-10, 292-pound Johnson from making an impact. Against the Minutemen, who pressured the perimeter, the senior center had more room to operate. He shot 6-for-13 from the floor and made 7 of 8 free throw attempts.

His six blocked shots were a key part of the Hurricanes' defense, which held UMass to 28.6 percent shooting (18 of 63) including 7 of 32 from 3-point range.

UMass scored the first five points of the game and led most of the first half, but the Hurricanes scored the last nine points of the half to take a 30-25 lead at intermission.

Durand Scott added 15 points and Shane Larkin had 14 for the Hurricanes.

Terrell Vinson led UMass with 14 points and 11 rebounds, while Chaz Williams added 11 points and 10 assists.
