Nov. 28, 2009
Gurley scored in double-figures for the 32nd time in his career and sixth time this season in as many games.
Gurley had more than 20 points for the second time this season and fifth time in his career.

Harris made his first-career start at point guard for UMass. Gurley started for the first time this season and Hashim Bailey drew his first-career start at center.
Harris had his first drew charge of the season, early in the game.
It was the first time UMass allowed 100 points to an opponent since the epic 107-100 win at Syracuse in 2007, two years ago to the day. The last time the Minutemen gave up 100 in a loss was back on Dec. 10, 1996 in a 102-81 loss to Fresno State. Michigan State's point total was the most since Penn State had 107 against the Minutemen on Jan. 5, 1989 (107-79).
UMass is now 0-4 all-time against teams ranked No. 2 losing to Wake Forest and Kentucky in 1996 and Saint Joseph's in 2004.
UMass is also 0-2 against Michigan State, falling to the Spartans in 1985 in New Mexico.
