Great win on the road, nice to see Brower light things up! The audio on the streaming video SUCKED, and the video stopped playing before the end of the game!! Oh well, guess you get what you pay for.

Glad to see that ESPN2 is picking up games, looking forward to watching on the big screen!

GO UMASS!!

3 players with 20+ points
Forbes 23
Harris 21
Brower 21

3 players with 10+ rebounds
Gaffney 12
Milligan 11
Forbes 10

Hopefully the post-game notes will say when the last time that happened was.

Great win! St. Louis is always tough, but we need that game Saturday.

Those Duquesne announcers were the worst I have ever heard. Gaffney should be player of the game: 12 boards, 6 blocss, 2 steals and 7 points. I take back everything I have ever said in the past about Brower taking 3's -- :lol:

this was the first effort all season that we put 2 halfs together. i know we have hade bigger wins but thiss seemed like our kibd of game. i liked what i saw. corriea played well ,being that c.lowe was in early foul trouble, our energy player (gafffney ) had a career type game. dante shoed up. our scorers (ricky,gary f) scored,and we had bench presence...ett. ...nice game


other than audio it was great..

They were always going to be on ESPN or ESPN2, it was just announced that both are going to be on ESPN2. No big surprise.

2/14 vs Fordham
2/21 at URI

I'm disappointed in the result tonight but not in the Dukes effort. We played hard but we executed poorly. And the UMass defense was a big reason for the poor execution. They had 10 blocks tonight and it seemed like more. They hit 37.5% from 3 tonight and it seemed like more. Hats off to the Minutemen. They played a fine game and showed they are the better team.

Thanks for being a good opposing fan on enemy turf.


Season highs tonight:
Rebounds (52)
Assists (24)

Gaffney new career highs with 12 boards and 6 blocks.

3 guys with the 10+ rebounds was the first time in almost 9 years.

Interesting how the naysayers find a way to not comment on the board on nights like these...
