Other than giving about 18 points on lay-ups in the first 10 minutes it has gotten better.. hopefully it pays dividends in the 2nd

Two guys have done the damage and at least three buckets came from freak bounces- after UMass had made good plays on D. NE has no rhythm to its offense, made 9 TOs, and Roland looks frustrated. At this point, I’ll take layups over him nailing uncontested 3s.

Good point . I can agree with that.. they have gotten a few lucky bounces.. need to see Tre get good position in the paint. They are doubling him so he needs to work it back out and re-establish

Gotta love the game Sean East is having...

You betcha. I am absolutely making it to the CCSU game on Saturday. This team is fun to watch so far and just beat a good team and limited Roland to 14 points. Also so great to see Pierre get going in crunch time, what a stud.

This was so much fun to watch. East making the full-court buzzer-beater. The hustle plays. Hot from three.

I know it's the 3rd game of the season, but when was the last time UMass beat a team receiving votes in the AP poll? 2013-14?

the play behind that play: Clergeot forces Roland into a super tough shot that hits the basket support, giving UMass a last-second long shot chance (literally long shot).

the 3 freshman stars were great. The juniors Pierre and Clergeot had their best games so far, and supporting players Baptiste, Santos and Buggs provided valuable help. Great team effort.
