    AMHERST, Mass. (AP) -- Rashaun Freeman scored 21 points and Maurice Maxwell added 12 as Massachusetts beat Yale 70-56 on Sunday.

    Lawrence Carrier added 10 for UMass (2-0), while Anthony Anderson had 13 rebounds.

    Dominick Martin, who had a game-high 23 points for Yale (1-3), scored his team's first six points. UMass shot a weak 27 percent from the field in the first 10 minutes, trailing 15-9.

    But just past the midway mark of the first half, Carrier and Freeman put UMass ahead 16-15, starting a 14-2 run that put the Minutemen ahead 23-17.

    Freeman's 11 points put UMass ahead 32-26 at halftime.

    Anderson added a 3-pointer to points from Art Bowers and Freeman for UMass to start the second half. Yale used an 8-0 run to pull within six (39-33), but Carrier and Maxwell had back-to-back three-pointers to start the UMass pullaway.

    Just past the 10-minute mark of the second half, free throws from Freeman and hoops by Maxwell and Carrier put the Minutemen ahead 53-37.

    Yale was hurt by a feeble 8-for-20 showing from the foul line, and was out-rebounded 24-16 at the half and 51-33 for the game.
