No. 21 U Mass beats BYU to win seventh straight

Associated Press  |  Last updated December 07, 2013
Chaz Williams had career highs of 32 points and 15 assists, and Sampson Carter scored 20 for No. 21 Massachusetts on Saturday to lead the Minutemen to their eighth straight victory, 105-96 over Brigham Young. Raphiael Putney added 15 points for UMass (8-0) in the third annual Hall of Fame Holiday Showcase, played down the street from the basketball shrine in the town where James Naismith invented the sport. Williams was 9-for-14 from the floor, including 5-for-7 from 3-point range, and he hit all nine of his foul shots as the Minutemen topped 100 points in regulation for the first time in five years. Tyler Haws scored 25 points for BYU (7-3), which had won two in a row. All three of the Cougars' losses are against teams ranked in The Associated Press Top 25. The Minutemen (8-0) are off to their longest winning streak since 1998 and their best start since winning their first 26 games in 1995-96 en route to a since-vacated appearance in the Final Four. Among the UMass victories are two against Atlantic Coast Conference schools and one each against the Southeastern Conference, Big Ten, Mountain West and West Coast Conferences.
