KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Ricky Harris had 18 points, Chris Lowe added 12 and Massachusetts used a stingy defense to hold off No. 25 Kansas 61-60 on Saturday.
UMass (3-6) has had trouble pulling out close games this season,
with four of its six losses by seven points or less. The Minutemen
built a 14-point lead in the first half, let Kansas back in it, but
held on this time.
Tony Gaffney had 13 rebounds, six blocked shots, three assists
and three steals for UMass.
Kansas (7-2), back in the Top 25 after being knocked out last
week, shot 34 percent overall and 5-of-23 from 3-point range.
The Jayhawks pulled within 61-60 on Sherron Collins' long
3-pointer with 27 seconds left. Kansas had a final chance after
Lowe missed two free throws with 20 seconds left, but Collins
missed a left-handed scoop shot and Kansas couldn't get another
shot off before the buzzer.
