Chaz Williams scored 20 points and hit a big 3-pointer with 2:26 to play to lead Massachusetts to a 77-67 victory over Seton Hall in the NIT's second round Saturday. Raphiael Putney added 15 points, Sean Carter had 11 points and 11 rebounds and Terrell Vinson added a backbreaking 3-pointer less than a minute after Williams' bomb for the Minutemen (24-11). Fuquan Edwin had 21 points to lead Seton Hall (21-13), which was the top seed in its bracket after failing to get an NCAA tournament berth. A foul-plagued Jordan Theodore added 14 points, while fellow senior Herb Pope had nine points and 15 rebounds. Massachusetts advanced to a quarterfinal game Tuesday against the winner of Sunday's second-round game between Drexel and Northern Iowa.
