UMass 83, NU 67

UMass basketball beats Northeastern

Williams sets pace for Minutemen

AMHERST - Northeastern simply could not keep up. The scoreboard told that story in plain numbers, of course, reflecting with conclusiveness the Huskies’ 83-67 loss to the University of Massachusetts last night before 2,664 at the Mullins Center.

But the story behind the story was told not so much in the bright red lights of the scoreboard but the green-light offense - as in go, go, go - of the Minutemen (2-0), led by faster-than-a-speeding bullet point guard Chaz Williams, who left NU defenders in his wake all evening.
