That was a really good UMass basketball team, they are off to one of their best starts in probably eight years… I thought we came out with a lot of pop. I thought we were focused, executed out game plan and a little later in the game thewy [UMass] made the game hard… We’re playing a hard schedule for a reason, and I think it’s going to prepare us for league play.”
