A-10 Preview: UMass
WFUV Sports will be previewing all the teams in the Atlantic 10 in anticipation of the start of Fordham's Basketball season. Here's a look at UMass....
The University of Massachusetts Minutemen finished sixth in the Atlantic 10 last year, with an impressive 21-12 record. The competitive A-10 stumped thje minute men though as they were only able to 9-7 in conference play. UMass is returning seven of their nine top scorers from last year including point guard Chaz Williams, an All-American candidate. Many analysts are high on the Minutemen this year including Jon Rothstein of CBSSports, who declared Williams the best player in the conference. He also said they had the best top 7 in the league. Coach Derek Kellogg returns for a sixth season as his team aims for their third 20 win season in a row.
Listen below to my conversation with UMass head coach Derrek Kellog.
