Nov 27, 2002
LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) - Anthony Anderson had 20 points and nine assists and Massachusetts held Chaminade to seven points over the final nine minutes in a 69-55 victory Wednesday in the seventh-place game of the Maui Invitational.
It was the 30th consecutive loss for the Silverswords (0-4) in the tournament they have hosted since 1984. Chaminade, a Division II school, has a 3-52 record in the event with its last victory coming over Stanford in the seventh-place game in 1992.
Massachusetts (1-2) used a 12-1 run to take a 65-49 lead with 4:36 left. Anderson started the run with a 3-pointer and he capped it with a layup after he stole the ball from Jason Walters just on the other side of the midcourt line.
Leon Ballard had 14 of his 15 points in the first half and grabbed nine rebounds for Chaminade, which shot 38 percent (21-for-54), including 5-for-18 from 3-point range, and committed 16 turnovers. The Silverswords were just 7-for-25 from the field in the second half.
Michael Lasme had 14 points for Massachusetts, 2-4 in its two Maui
Invitational appearances, both wins coming over Chaminade.
