February 21 Rebound

Let's catch up on the Friday night action. Only 12 games to cover tonight.

UMass 80 (21-5, 8-4) VCU 75 (20-7, 8-4)

The Minutemen were down 67-62 with 7 minutes left. From there, the defense stiffened, holding VCU without a field goal (2 FTs) for 4 and a half minutes. During that time, UMass went on an 8-2 run to take the lead. A Trey Davis steal and layup was the ultimate game deciding basket. UMass went 6-6 at the line down the stretch. VCU had a chance to tie down 3 with 49 seconds left after a turnover, but a 3 pointer was missed.  

Chaz Williams had a game high 20 for the Minutemen. Derrick Gordon had 16. Treveon Graham had 19, but on 19 field goal attempts, for VCU.

Iona 80 (18-8, 15-2) Rider 77 (13-13, 9-8)

The Gaels had a 14 point lead with 3:51 left, then saw most of it wiped out with a 13-2 run in just about 3 minutes. Anthony Myles of Rider had a chance at the tie but his shot was no good.

Florida Gulf Coast 75 (18-10, 12-3) Mercer 61 (21-7, 12-3)

The Time Shares beat the hell out of the Bears to split the season series and create a tie at the top of the Atlantic Sun. It would be nice to have a third meeting in the conference tournament. The Gaels have a 2 game conference lead with 3 games remaining.

Harvard 83 (21-4, 8-1) Penn 63 (6-16, 3-5)

Yale 82 (14-9, 8-1) Cornell 65 (2-21, 1-8)

Both of the Ivy co-leaders rolled in road action.
