AMHERST, Mass. -- Chaz Williams had 22 points and nine assists as Massachusetts dominated late in both halves and defeated Duquesne 79-66 Thursday night.

The Minutemen (12-4, 2-1 Atlantic 10 Conference), who have won nine of their last 10 games, led 65-62 with 7:12 remaining before a 14-2 run gave them a 79-64 advantage with 1:04 left. The run included three baskets by Terrell Vinson, who finished with 17 points.

A 14-6 Massachusetts run late in the first half widened a 25-21 lead to 44-27 just before halftime. Williams capped the run with consecutive 3-pointers and two free throws.

The Minutemen were 7 of 16 on 3-pointers in the first half, with Williams and Freddie Riley sinking three each. Riley and Cady Lalanne scored 12 points each, and Lalanne had 11 rebounds.

Sean Johnson scored 29 points, 18 in the second half, for the Dukes (7-10, 0-3), who have lost five straight.
