    AMHERST, Mass. -- Chaz Williams scored 21 points and Raphiael Putney and Javorn Farrell added 20 apiece as Massachusetts rallied to defeat Duquesne 92-83 Tuesday night in the first round of the Atlantic 10 Conference tournament

    The eighth-seeded Minutemen (21-10) will face No. 21 Temple, the top seed, in Friday's quarterfinals in Atlantic City, N.J.

    There were eight ties and 14 lead changes, with UMass trailing 78-73 with 6:03 left. Terrell Vinson then hit a 3-pointer, Farrell made a layup and Williams hit four straight free throws for a 82-78 Minutemen lead with 3:37 to go

    After Sean Johnson's 3-pointer cut the deficit to one, Williams made a layup and UMass hit 8 of 10 free throws to avenge an 80-69 loss to Duquesne on Jan.18.

    The Minutemen shot 50.8 percent from the field (30 of 59).

    Eric Evans and Jerry Jones scored 16 points apiece for the ninth-seeded Dukes (16-15).
