November 25, 2003

AMHERST, MA - With 14 players playing at least 11 minutes and none playing more than 18, the 14th-ranked Amherst College men’s basketball team improved to 3-0 with a decisive 104-52 win over visiting non-league foe Mass. College on Tuesday night. Junior forward Andrew Schiel (Wayne, PA) led four Amherst players in double figures with 16 points on perfect 8-for-8 shooting.

The Jeffs, whose average margin of victory swelled to 43.0 points after Tuesday’s win, opened up a 17-1 lead over the first 4:06 and never looked back, leading 59-29 at the break and stretching the bulge to 52 points in the second half. Amherst registered 16 steals in the game, including a game-high four by senior guard Adam Harper (Washington, DC), and blocked 12 shots, led by senior forward Tim Jones’ (Richmond, VA) career-high five swats.

The Jeffs shot 61.0% (47-for-77) overall and held Mass. College to just 34.0% (18-for-53) from the floor. Jones and rookies Tim McLaughlin (Chatham, NJ) and Dan O’Shea (Lawrence, MA) joined Schiel in double figures with 14, 12 and 10 points, respectively. Jones was 6-for-8 on the day and is now 17-for-22 on the season, good for a team-best .773 field-goal percentage.

Sophomore forward John Casnocha (San Francisco, CA) added nine points and matched a career high with 10 boards in the win, while junior point guard Ray Corrigan (Queens, NY) dished out a career- and game-high 10 assists in just 14 minutes.

Mass. College (0-3) was led by senior guard Glenn Mills’ (Springfield, MA) 15 points and six rebounds. Sophomore swingman Thad Broughton (Peabody, MA) chipped in with 14 points.

Amherst returns to action next Tuesday at 7 p.m. at non-league foe Clark University.
