UMass shot 32.3 percent from the field in a 69-51 loss to No. 14 Minnesota on Friday in the Barclays Center Classic.
The Minutemen fell behind 40-21 at the end of the first half, and even a solid performance in the final frame in which they outscored Minnesota, 30-29, wasn’t enough.
Luwane Pipkins was the lone Minutemen to score in double figures as he had 18 points.
UMass will battle BYU (3-2) tomorrow at 2:30 p.m.
