UMass survives in OT 89-87. Lowe scored with under 2 seconds (from memory) left to win it for the Minutemen.

I thought the effort was there. The guys didn't sulk about playing in the NIT and it showed. Gee, Riley, and Hollinger all played well offensively. Defensively I thought we also improved despite the 89 points by UMass. Where was this during the conference schedule. If we played like we did last night we'd be in the NCAAs.
- Gee, Riley, and Hollinger offensively
- Tubbs and Torrance on D
- 8 steals
- UMass shot 50% from the field
- Lasme went off... he dominated our big men inside.
- 17 turnovers... still too much.
Well, the season's over now. While I'm not as fired up about next season as I was this one I do think we have the talent right now to be a pretty good team. The question is will we revert to our conference ways and go into a shell or play like we did last night.
