Any UMass BB nickname list has to include "Trigger".

Two of my favorites: Bulb and Shizzy
Might need to elaborate OC
Bulb is Winston Smith, whose totally shaved head bore a perfect resemblance to his moniker. He is the guy on the right side of the photo that is right now to the left.

Shizzy is Shannon Crooks. He wrote a rap song, calling himself Shizzy D, during his AAU/high school days playing with Jon DePina, who made sure that his new teammates knew of the name when Shannon transferred in.

Who the heck had the nickname "Debbie Downer." That had to be embarrassing as hell. Was it Ajmal Basit?

Here's one: In which year were there three seniors who each scored 1,000 points in their careers, and who were they?

Here’s a good one,

Dennis Rodman had 7 games in his career with 0 points and over 20 rebounds - Marcus Camby is 2nd in NBA history with 2 games with that stat line.

With a two year gap between question and answer, my only guess is Bright, Dingle and Camby in 96, but Marcus was not a senior.

That is correct! And you got it just under the 2-year limit for collecting your prize. And the players?

It's too quiet around here.

Here goes: Three of the top five freshman players in assists left UMass after only one year. Who are they?

And here's another one: Six players have scored 34 or more points in two or more games. How many can you name?
