    AMHERST, Mass. -- Raphiael Putney and Chaz Williams scored 19 points apiece, leading Massachusetts to an 85-75 win over Charlotte on Wednesday night.

    Terrell Vinson added 18 points and Sean Carter 15 for the Minutemen (13-4, 2-1 Atlantic-10 Conference), who have won seven of their last eight games. UMass got back on track after having its season-high six-game losing snapped the last time out, 82-75 on Sunday at La Salle.

    Putney, whose scoring output was a career high, also pulled down a game-high 10 rebounds for UMass, which outrebounded Charlotte 36-25.

    Chris Braswell scored 31 points to pace the 49ers (9-6, 2-1).
