Recap: Massachusetts vs. Duquesne

Amherst, MA (Sports Network) - Chaz Williams scored 22 points and handed out nine assists as the Massachusetts Minutemen registered a 79-66 win over the Duquesne Dukes in an Atlantic 10 battle at the Mullins Center.

Williams, who shot 4-of-8 behind the 3-point line, added five rebounds and four steals for UMass (12-4, 2-1 A-10) as the team won for the ninth time in 10 tries. Terrell Vinson responded with 17 points and five dishes, followed by Freddie Riley and Cady Lalanne with 12 points apiece, the latter also clearing a team-high 11 rebounds off the bench.

The Dukes (7-10, 0-3) were paced by Sean Johnson who recorded a game-high 29 points, while Derrick Colter tacked on 14 and six assists as the team lost for the fifth time in as many outings.

Duquesne led by three points early in the contest, but that was before the Minutemen connected on 7-of-16 beyond the arc over the first 20 minutes of action in order to claim a 44-30 edge at the break.

In the second half UMass struggled a bit on the perimeter (2-of-8) and at the free-throw line (3-of-9), but it had already established a comfortable lead that the squad was able to carry through to the end.

Reserves for the visitors finished just 3-of-18 from the floor and accounted for five of the unit's 15 turnovers on the night.
