14th Ranked Jeffs Claim Ken Wright '52 Invitational Behind Tourney MVP Adam Harper's 15 Points, Seven Steals

November 22, 2003

AMHERST, MA - With 15 points and seven steals, senior guard Adam Harper (Washington, DC) earned Tournament MVP honors for the second straight season, leading the 14th-ranked Amherst College (2-0) menís basketball team to a lopsided 98-53 win over visiting Framingham State College (1-1) in the championship game of the Third-Annual Ken Wright í52 Memorial Invitational on Saturday.

Amherst senior Tim Jones (Richmond, VA) and junior Andrew Schiel (Wayne, PA), who helped pace the Jeffs with 15 and nine points, respectively, joined Harper on the All-Tournament team.

As in Friday nightís first-round win over Gordon College, Amherst started a bit sluggish on Saturday, trading leads with Framingham over the first 5:45. Harper and junior point guard Ray Corrigan (Queens, NY) then upped the defensive intensity and used a trio of steals to spark an 11-0 Amherst run - kick-started by a Jones layup - from which the Rams would never recover.

Rookie forward Dan Wheeler (Bloomington, MN) followed Jones and Harper in double figures with 10 points in just 12 minutes. Fellow first-years Dan Fisher (Oakland, CA) and Tim McLaughlin (Chatham, NJ) were equally impressive with nine and eight points, respectively. Corrigan added nine points, and he and McLaughlin dished out five assists apiece. Schiel controlled the boards and the defensive end with game-highs of nine rebounds and four blocks.

Framingham junior guard Chris Feeney (Dorchester, MA) earned All-Tournament honors with a team-high nine points.

Earlier in the afternoon, Gordon College (1-1) took the consolation game 66-55 over Salve Regina University (0-2). Senior guard Ryan Smith (Hamilton, MA) tallied 19 points and seven rebounds in the victory, while senior guard Chris OíRourke (Methuen, MA) finished with 19 points and four assists in defeat. Both were named to the All-Tournament team.

Amherst returns to action Tuesday at 7 p.m. against visiting non-league foe Mass. College of Liberal Arts.
