Halftime Stats and Observations

By David Scott - December 02, 2006

AMHERST, Mass. - BC leads 39-27 at the half and controlled the pace and tempo of play for much of the first 20 minutes.

BC is led by Sean Marshall’s 13 points, and Rashaun Freeman leads UMass with 12 points. Sean Williams has 10 points for BC and Stephane Lasme has 10 points for the Minutemen.

UMass has struggled mightily from 3-point land, hitting just 1 of 12 (8.3 %) - they shoot .355 from 3-point land for the season.

BC scored 12 points off of eight UMass turnovers, while the Minutemen had four points off five Eagle turns.

. . . UMass went 11 deep in the first half, while BC used eight players

. . . If UMass is going to mount a comeback in this one, they clearly need to hit some outside shots, mainly form 3-point land. They will also need some contribution from the bench, which provided lots of minutes but not a single point (and just three rebounds) in the first half.

. . . The UMass lacrosse team was honored during half-time for it’s second place finish in last year’s NCAA Lax Tournament. The Minutemen are coached by the affable Greg Cannella. There was also a halftime video tribute to Jack Leaman that featured messages from Rick Pitino, John Calipari and Bruiser Flint.

. . . Collegian writer Danny Picard, a senior this year, was courtside for the contest. Picard showed moxie last year when he was getting all sorts of information on the Roger Clemens possible return to Boston, by having the gumption to reach out to Clemens‘ agent. The kid has chops and any editors out there should look up Picard for an entry level position. They won’t be disappointed. He was a Boston Globe intern over the summer, in fact, so you know he‘s seen how things work in The Bigs.
