UMass scored a season-high 85 points.
Jesse Morgan finished with a career-high 35 points on 12-of-18 shooting, including 7-of-10 from beyond the arc. His 35 points scored is the most by any Atlantic 10 player and tied for 11th in the NCAA this season.
Morgan's 35 points falls just shy of the Mullins Center record of 38 set back in 1996 by Marcus Camby. Billy Tindall set the school record in 1968 with 41 points.
Morgan's seven three-point field goals are the most for any UMass player since Ricky Harris set the school record, with eight, in 2010.
Morgan finished the first half with 24 points setting a new Mullins Center record, knocking off the previous mark of 22 by Anthony Anderson in 2003. The most points in any half was 29 set by Julius Erving on January 28, 1970 against Boston University.
Twenty-two of Morgan's 24 first half points came in a span of 6 minutes, 22 seconds.
