    KINGSTON, R.I. -- Chaz Williams had 21 points with seven assists and Derrick Gordon added 11 points and nine rebounds as Massachusetts defeated Rhode Island 73-68 Sunday.

    The Minutemen (19-4, 6-3 Atlantic 10) shot 53.1 percent from the field and outrebounded Rhode Island 36-27. Raphiael Putney chipped in 11 points.

    Rhode Island (11-13, 2-7) was led by E.C. Matthews with 24 points and Xavier Munford had 19.

    The Rams had moved out to a 62-55 lead with 8:35 remaining as Munford had a layup and three free throws. UMass responded, surging back into the lead after a Williams jumper and going up 68-65 after a Gordon layup.

    After a block by Putney on T.J. Buchanan, Williams made two free throws. Matthews hit a 3-pointer to pull Rhode Island within two with 15 seconds left, but Trey Davis followed by sinking three free throws, capping an 18-6 UMass run to ice the game.
