Recap: Massachusetts vs. Providence

Bayamon, PR (Sports Network) - Terrell Vinson tipped in a missed layup by Chaz Williams with no time left on the clock to put the Massachusetts Minutemen up 77-75 over the Providence Friars for a dramatic victory in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off in Bayamon.

Vinson scored 14 points and grabbed six rebounds but none more important than his last tip-in for the Minutemen (2-0). Jesse Morgan led the team in scoring off the bench with 18 points, Chaz Williams added 17 points and Raphiael Putney chipped in 10. Both Williams and Putney pulled down a team-high seven rebounds.

Providence (2-1) also had four players score in double-figures led by Bryce Cotton with 23 points. Kadeem Batts added 19 points and nine rebounds while Josh Fortune contributed 12 points. LaDontae Henton recorded a double-double with 13 points and 11 rebounds.

UMass outscored Providence 41-35 in the first half, while shooting 59.3 percent from the field to 42.4 percent by the Friars.

Providence fought back and led 75-72 with 1:22 left in the game when Jesse Morgan hit a three-pointer to tie the game. Neither team scored until the final moments when Vinson tipped in the ball for the win.

UMass will face off against sixth-ranked NC State in second-round action on Saturday.
