AMHERST, Mass. -- Freddie Riley came off the bench in the first half to make five 3-pointers in a span of 3:41 to spark Massachusetts to its seventh consecutive win, 75-61 over Eastern Michigan on Saturday.
The first of Riley's 3-pointers gave the Minutemen (10-3) a 13-12 lead, and they led by 10 points, 25-15, after the last of them, with 7:58 until halftime.
Riley added another trey in the second half and moved into sixth place on Massachusetts' career list for 3-pointers made with 179. The senior guard was scoring just 4.4 points per game this season but has averaged 12.3 over the last four games.
