EMPHIS, Tenn. - John Calipari doesn't like playing his friends. He never has. The former University of Massachusetts and current Memphis men's basketball coach likes to relish his wins and he can't do that when he's sympathizing with the guy he just beat.
"I like to really enjoy winning," Calipari said laughing. "You can't do it when you're playing against someone you care about and love."
That describes Derek Kellogg who will be on the other bench tonight at midnight when the University of Massachusetts plays the 13th-ranked Tigers at FedEx Forum. Kellogg played for Calipari at UMass and coached with him in Memphis. The game will be televised by ESPN. "I only wanted to play UMass if it was in the NCAA Tournament," Calipari said. "The school has a special place in my heart. They gave my wife and I an opportunity. My daughter is finishing up. She's a senior there. That should tell you how I feel about the place.
"I wanted to help Derek. ESPN wanted us to play an Atlantic 10 team and I didn't want to return the game. When it was Derek, I thought we had to return it," said Calipari, who will bring Memphis to the TD Banknorth Garden in Boston during the 2009-10 season.
"It's not something I like to do. Someone wins this and someone loses," he added. "If we win I'm going to be happy for about 30 seconds because I'm going to look at Derek and know he's suffering. If we lose then I'm just miserable."
Memphis, who lost the national championship game in overtime last year, is the heavy favorite. Despite losing three players to the NBA draft, including No. 1 pick Derrick Rose, the Tigers appear to have reloaded.
In additions to veterans Robert Dozier and Antonio Anderson, who move from being role players last year into leadership positions this season, the Tigers added Tyreke Evans, a top-five recruit out of Philadelphia. Evans led Memphis (1-0) with 19 points in his first college game, a 90-63 win over Fairfield Saturday.
But Calipari isn't ruling out feeling miserable tonight after the Minutemen went 1-1 last week in the 2K Sports Classic, including n 80-73 loss to Southern Illinois.
"I watched the Southern Illinois tape. (The UMass) guards are as good as we'll play this year. The big kid (Luke Bonner) is hurt so that hurts them inside, but their guards can drive into the lane, shoot 3s and play fast," Calipari said. "They play a terrifically coached Southern Illinois team and they had the game. They could be coming in here 2-0."
He said Kellogg's knowledge of his system and his roster could help even things out.
"Derek not only knows the way we're going to play, but he also knows the personnel because he recruited them all. He knows the weaknesses and strengths of all these guys," said Calipari.
He noted that Texas-El Paso has given Memphis trouble the past two years because it is coached by Tony Barbee, another of his former assistants who also played at UMass.
"The teams that give us the most problems are the teams that really understand what we're doing," Calipari said. "We should have lost two years in a row to UTEP."
The Minutemen will try to deliver the upset without Bonner. An MRI on the senior big man revealed a sprained medial collateral ligament that will sideline him for about a month. Kellogg said the Minutemen have a tough task ahead of them.
"I would enjoy (the matchup), but right now it's tough because I think we're a little undermanned," he said. "I'm going to enjoy the trip of going to Memphis and seeing friends.
"I think it's going to be a good test for our guys to see where we're trying to get this program against a top-level team playing at a high level, running the offense the way it needs to," Kellogg added. "They're further along as a program with higher rated players and they're at home. We're going to have to play a very good basketball team and try to make them take tough shots. Hopefully they don't shoot the ball as well."
Kellogg said he hopes to get Calipari's evaluation on his team after the game.
"I hope when the game is all said and done they'll give me the scouting report of what they think about my team," he said.
The game is officially listed to start at 11:59 p.m. following Monday night football. It kicks off ESPN's 24-hour college basketball marathon.
"That's one of the main reasons we wanted to play - for the television exposure and to get Memphis back in Boston next year," Kellogg said. "Any time UMass can get on national television, it's a great thing."
MORE CONNECTIONS - Beyond the obvious Calipari-Kellogg ties, there are quite a few other links between the two programs.
Calipari and Memphis are running the dribble-drive motion offense invented by UMass assistant coach Vance Walberg. His son Jason Walberg is on Calipari's staff as the assistant to the recruiting coordinator.
Memphis assistant John Robic coached under Calipari and Bruiser Flint at UMass.
UMass director of player personnel Shyrone Chatman played at Memphis and director of basketball operations Andy Allison held a similar post last year with the Tigers.
Antonio Anderson's older brother Anthony Anderson was a four-year starter for the Minutemen.

erek Kellogg will peer down toward the other bench tonight shortly after tip-off - by which point bourbon will have long supplanted barbecue as the preferred order on Beale Street in Memphis - and see an unusual sight: John Calipari as his opponent.
Kellogg first met Calipari nearly 20 years ago, when he was a high school star in Springfield and Calipari was building the University of Massachusetts into an unlikely college basketball force. In the years since, while he played for and coached under him, Calipari became "my mentor, father figure, the guy who's taught me the majority of stuff I know about coaching and life in general," Kellogg said.
In his third game the as head coach at UMass, Kellogg will face Calipari and No. 12 Memphis, national championship runner-up last season. And that might not even be the oddest subplot. The tip will be at midnight - 11 p.m. local time - as the opening game of the made-for-TV 24 Hours of College Basketball.
For Kellogg, there is no doubt which storyline stands out. He will be returning to the city where he lived for eight years, to challenge the man most responsible for his life in college basketball.
"It's going to be kind of strange to see Coach Cal as kind of my adversary for the first time," Kellogg said.
Calipari and Kellogg speak every day on the phone, sometimes more than once. They talk about basketball first. They share information about players they've seen recruiting. Kellogg solicits advice about what's working and not working at practice.
Before long, the conversation turns to "what's really important," Kellogg said. Calipari asks about Kellogg's newborn son. Kellogg asks about Calipari's daughter. The idea of opposing one another has been broached, too.
"There's been many nights where we've talked about looking at the other guy at the other end," Kellogg said. "When the game starts, you can't look at the face of the person. You just have to look as it's another game as an opponent."
Abounding connections between the programs will make that difficult. UMass assistant coach Vance Walberg - the creator of Memphis's dribble-drive motion offense - taught the system to Calipari and served as a Memphis consultant last season. His son, Jason, is now an assistant to Calipari at Memphis.
UMass forward Hashim Bailey, who is redshirting this season, transferred from Memphis. UMass director of player personnel Shyrone Chatman played for Calipari at Memphis and served as one of his recruiting coordinators. Kellogg also brought with him Memphis director of basketball operations Andy Allison.
"There's a lot of intertwining," Kellogg said. "It's kind of a homecoming of sorts."
That UMass is playing in this game illustrates Calipari's influence on Kellogg. Calipari built a reputation at UMass for playing any team at any time to raise the stature of the program. Kellogg remembers several games at the Mullins Center that began at midnight. "This is like the norm for me," he said.
His players, though, will have a new experience. Calipari planned on holding practice last night at 10. Kellogg pushed UMass practice back an hour or two, but nothing "that extreme," he said. "I'm just worried about our team getting better right now. I just have to get our team tougher, better."
"When we found out we were playing at midnight, we were like, 'What?' " forward Tony Gaffney said. "It kind of took us by surprise. But then when we realized we were the first game, we loved it."
Said point guard Chris Lowe, "That's going to be very weird. A lot of times at midnight, you're sleeping. You're not playing basketball."
Kellogg said he is not worried about the Minutemen arriving at FedEx Forum unready, that the national television stage and playing in front of roughly 20,000 people will amp them. Once the game begins, though, he admitted the competition might not match the buildup.
"I'm not sure that the game is going to be so exciting with the level of talent they have," Kellogg said. "I'm not sure our guys understand playing a top-15 team on the road [that] has experienced and [future] NBA players on their roster."
Still, no matter the result, the game will be valuable for the Minutemen as Kellogg is trying to implement the offense Memphis used to get to the national final last season, and watching a team as experienced and as skilled as the Tigers will help them learn its intricacies.
It will land UMass on national television. It will allow the Minutemen to test themselves against one of the country's best teams.
And afterward, Kellogg and Calipari will have something new to talk about. Kellogg knows Calipari will have compiled a complete scouting report on the Minutemen. Kellogg will ask to see it, to see what his former coach thinks of his new team. There is no one else he trusts more.
"That's like a big dad, little son," Lowe said. "But they're coaching against each other now. They're going to be friends, but I know Coach Kellogg wants the 'W.' Once the game starts, we're not friends."
Senior center Luke Bonner will not play tonight and could be out for "at least a couple weeks" with a knee injury he sustained Wednesday against Southern Illinois, Kellogg said. He hurt his knee late when a Saluki dove for a loose ball and rammed his head into Bonner's knee.
t wasn't too long ago that Massachusetts men's basketball coach Derek Kellogg sat in Memphis senior Robert Dozier's family room and recruited him for the Tigers.
Now Kellogg will be coaching against him.
UMass (1-1) officially opens the college basketball season as part of ESPN's 24-hour marathon against No. 12 Memphis (1-0) Monday at midnight at the FedEx Forum in Memphis.
In their previous game against Southern Illinois, the Minutemen were up by as many as 15 points in the first half, but 20 turnovers ultimately allowed for the Salukis to pull off an 80-73 comeback victory.
Against a team as successful as the Tigers, UMass isn't going to have nearly the margin for error that it did in Carbondale, Ill.
Yet Memphis is nowhere near as dominant as it was last season when it lost a close game in the NCAA championship to Kansas, led by NBA No. 1 overall draft pick Derrick Rose. Even without three of their five starters from last year, the Tigers are expected to be one of the best teams in college basketball.
The arrival of freshman guard Tyreke Evans is part of the reason why Memphis can continue its high aspirations of winning an NCAA championship. Evans isn't as polished as Rose, but was rated the sixth-best incoming freshman according to the Web site Rivals.com.
Memphis rolled through its first opponent, Fairfield, 90-63, on Nov. 15. After playing the Minutemen, the Tigers will compete in a three-game series in Puerto Rico before returning to the FedEx Forum.
Prior to this season, Memphis coach John Calipari held a policy of not competing against former assistant coaches, but changed the rule after Kellogg got the UMass head coaching job.
The Tigers' schedule features meetings with three of Calipari's former assistant coaches: Tony Barbee (UTEP), Steve Roccaforte (Lamar) and Bruiser Flint (Drexel).
The last time UMass played Memphis was on Jan. 4, 1996 when the top-ranked Minutemen beat the Tigers, 64-61. That meeting was part of Calipari's last season coaching the Minutemen, who went on to make the NCAA Final Four.
Kellogg played under Calipari at UMass between the 1992 and 1995 seasons. Kellogg made the NCAA tournament every year while playing for the Minutemen. Their best season was during Kellogg's last year when they reached the Elite Eight.
After his playing days, Kellogg's coaching career received a big boost from Calipari after three years as a mid-major assistant coach. Kellogg was one of the first hires to Calipari's staff after taking the job at Memphis in 2000.
As an assistant coach, Kellogg has worked with and recruited four first-round picks in the NBA draft. His most significant recruit to date is Rose, who is the starting point guard for the Chicago Bulls in his rookie season.
Some of Rose's success with Memphis came from being part of the dribble-drive motion offense.
Kellogg is carrying that offense over to the Minutemen with the help of assistant coach and creator of the dribble-drive offense, Vance Walberg.
Kellogg believes the offense is helpful for any point guard, which is why he has such high expectations for Chris Lowe. The senior won't be expected to put up numbers similar to Rose, but he is expected to be one of the best point guards in the Atlantic 10.
Lowe is averaging 17.5 points and 5.5 assists per game. But after committing 10 turnovers with no assists against the Salukis, the Minutemen are going to need Lowe to take better care of the ball against the Tigers.
ARBONDALE, Ill. -- The rebound was up for grabs, and David Gibbs should have been the one that grabbed it. But when Gibbs went up softly and tried to secure the ball with one hand, leading to a tied ball, first-year University of Massachusetts coach Derek Kellogg leapt out of his chair and raised his arms in disgust.
As the teams began walking back toward the benches for a TV timeout, Kellogg stormed onto the court for a face-to-face confrontation with his freshman guard, explaining in clear terms why he had just missed out on a loose ball.
Remind you of anyone you know?

"Cal always has the adage of assimilation by association," Kellogg said. "It means you hang around somebody long enough, you start acting like them. But in a good way, I think I've taken some of his coaching style and some of his antics on the sideline in a positive way."
During his time in Memphis, it wasn't a question of if Kellogg would get a head coaching job. The only issue was when and where, and things fell perfectly for him last April after the Tigers lost in the national championship game.
On the heels of Memphis' 38-2 season, Kellogg was a natural candidate for virtually any open position at the mid-major level, but there was no doubt that he coveted the job at his alma mater. After Travis Ford left UMass for Oklahoma State, Kellogg was the obvious choice to take over at age 34.
Though Kellogg said he "just doesn't get to eat anymore," accounting for his svelte appearance these days, he has enjoyed his first seven months as a head coach and all the stress and responsibilities he has suddenly assumed.
"It's difficult. It keeps you busy and keeps you on your toes, but I feel like it keeps me young and energetic," Kellogg said. "That's actually the stuff as an assistant I loved to do -- be around people, formulating relationships and getting people interested in the program. Now you're just doing it at the head coach level, which is another step up."
Though Kellogg is now back home, coaching just a few miles from where he grew up, he is surrounded by plenty of Memphis connections. After getting hired at UMass, he in turn hired Andy Allison and Shyrone Chatman from the Tigers' administrative staff and brought on Vance Walberg as his assistant coach.
Walberg, the architect of Memphis' dribble-drive offense, has 30 years of head-coaching experience and is helping Kellogg as he transitions to the front of the bench.
"I'm trying to help him, but he knows what he's doing," said Walberg, whose son Jason is now on the Tigers' operations staff. "He's been under John long enough to know what to do. It's just like anything else, every day you learn. He's doing a really good job."
As an assistant at Memphis, Kellogg was an effective recruiter because of his ability to relate to players and friendly personality. Part of the challenge for Kellogg, however, has been adjusting how he approaches those relationships as a head coach.
"It's a fine line between being a friend, a father figure, a coach, a mentor -- all that stuff combined," Kellogg said. "There's a fine line where you don't want to cross it, being too close, but you also want to make sure that they know you care and love them. It's tough. It's tough to get them to play and do exactly what you want and being tough enough on them with them also knowing that you're here for them."
Chris Lowe, UMass' senior point guard, said Kellogg is still a "players' coach," but that he's earned their respect.
"He's a great person to be around," Lowe said. "He's been around great players and a great coach so he knows what it takes to win on the highest level, so we just listen to him and follow his lead. He's embraced us, and it's been great so far. You can tell he's going to be a great coach."
Calipari thinks so, too, which is why he's leery of playing UMass tonight and next season in Boston when the Minutemen will have even more talent and experience. But for Calipari, this is simply the first of five games against former assistants.
"I'm not looking forward to it," Calipari said. "I'm looking forward to seeing him. My daughter (Erin) came in from UMass and is going to go back on their charter, so he saved me a few dollars. That's always good. But I'm going to be happy when the game's over."
EMPHIS, Tenn. - Antonio Anderson had 15 points and a career-high 12 rebounds and No. 13 Memphis shook off a poor shooting performance to beat Massachusetts 80-58 on Monday night.
Freshman Tyreke Evans had 19 points and Robert Dozier added 18 for the Tigers, who were limited to 39 percent shooting for the game, including 2-of-19 outside the arc. It marked the second straight game where Evans, one of last season's prized recruits, has led the Tigers (2-0) in scoring. Evans keyed a first-half rally that put the Tigers up for good.
Ricky Harris led the Minutemen (1-2) with 17 points, while Tony Gaffney scored 16 points and grabbed a career-high 19 rebounds.
John Calipari became the winningest coach in Memphis history with 221 victories, surpassing Larry Finch, who led the program from 1986-1997.
The game was a meeting of mentor and pupil. Derek Kellogg, in his first year as coach at Massachusetts, played for Calipari from 1991-95 during Calipari's tenure as coach of the Minutemen. Kellogg was an assistant under Calipari for eight years at Memphis before moving to his alma mater.
Memphis built the lead to double digits in the first half and extended it to as many as 27 in the second half.
UMass was without 7-foot-1 senior center Luke Bonner, who injured his left knee in an 80-73 loss at Southern Illinois last week. In the second half Monday, the Minutemen lost 6-7 reserve forward Matt Hill to a left leg injury. But Gaffney's effort allowed UMass to outrebound the Tigers 49-48.
While Memphis struggled from the field, UMass was even worse, shooting 30 percent. Add 24 turnovers, and the Minutemen were unable to stay in the game in the second half.
The Tigers led 33-25 after a first half that saw poor shot selection, sloppy ballhandling and plenty of misfires from both teams.
Harris was 3-of-5 outside the arc to lead UMass with 12 points in the first half.
Dozier had 12 points for Memphis, and Evans had 11, seven coming as part of an 11-0 run that erased an early UMass lead and put Memphis up by double digits.
Dozier got inside for a handful of baskets to keep the Tigers in the game early, but turnovers, shots that barely caught rim and difficult unsuccessful layup attempts led to anemic shooting percentages.
UMass shot 28 percent for the half, while Memphis connected on 33 percent, but missed 11 of 12 shots beyond the arc.
Memphis rebuilt the lead to double digits when Shawn Taggart, who had seven points and 11 rebounds, converted a three-point play with 15:37 left in the game, and Massachusetts never got the deficit under 10 the rest of the way.
Tony Gaffney had a career-high 19 rebounds. The last time UMass had a player with 20 or more rebounds since Jim Town hauled down 27 on Dec. 12, 1976.
Tony Gaffney had his second-career double-double with 16 points and 19 rebounds.
Tony Gaffney had his fifth career game with 10 or more rebounds.
Ricky Harris scored in double-figures for the 41st time and third time this season with 17 shots.
UMass had a stretch of 13 missed shots in a row from 17:20 to 9:04 (8:16).
Tyrell Lynch drew his first career charge.
Freshman Tyrell Lynch drew his first career start for UMass, in his third college game.
EMPHIS, Tenn. - Many of the University of Massachusetts men's basketball players were still breathing heavily as they walked off the floor Monday night in Memphis.
The 13th-ranked Tigers (2-0) were more experienced, they were deeper and they were better as they pulled away in the second half of an 80-58 victory.
The Minutemen (1-2) were already hurting without senior center Luke Bonner who is out a month with a medial collateral ligament strain. On Monday they lost 6-7 sophomore forward Matt Hill in the second half with what the coaching staff believes is a torn Achilles, which would end his season.
"From all indications he tore his Achilles," UMass coach Derek Kellogg said. Hill will see a doctor Tuesday.
Without him, UMass is left with three true big men, including Tyrell Lynch and Travon Wilcher who sat out all of last year.
The third, Tony Gaffney, had a coming out party on ESPN with 16 points, 19 rebounds and five blocked shots.
"Tony Gaffney has been absolutely phenomenal," Kellogg said. "If we had one more or two more of him we'd have a pretty good record right now."
The circumstances surrounding the first meeting between former Minuteman coach John Calipari's Tigers and Kellogg - his former player and assistant - went off as expected.
Kellogg received an ovation from the 18,254 Memphis fans honoring his contribution to the program's recent success as an assistant from 2000 until this year. The Tigers lost last season's championship game to Kansas.
"For me the greatest part of the night was that ovation the fans gave Derek. That was special," said Calipari who now has the most career wins as Memphis coach with 221, passing Larry Finch.
Kellogg's Minutemen were competitive in the first half and led through the first 12 minutes, 28 seconds when Robert Dozier's jumper gave the Tigers a 17-16 edge.
Although Memphis pulled ahead, the Tigers could not put the game away as a Gaffney putback brought UMass to within 33-25.
In the second half, the Tigers gradually pulled away as the Minutemen wore down. While Memphis was held to 39 percent shooting, UMass could only manage 30 percent.
"In the second half we wore down a little bit and didn't execute the game plan," Kellogg said. "We have to continue to get better."
Despite being thin up front, the Minutemen outrebounded the Tigers 49-48 due largely to Gaffney. But Memphis turned 24 UMass turnovers into 28 points.
Highly touted freshman Tyreke Evans led the Tigers with 19 points, Dozier had 18 and Antonio Anderson added 15 points, 12 rebounds and five assists.
Ricky Harris led the Minutemen with 16 points, including four of 10 from 3-point range.
UMass is off until it hosts Jacksonville State at 7 p.m. Monday in the home opener at the Mullins Center.

EMPHIS, Tenn. - Before things really took off for the University of Memphis basketball program, John Calipari would come home and find "For Sale" signs on his front lawn - an unsubtle message that he wasn't living up to some fans' expectations for the program.
It's a story the coach likes to tell. Last year while the Tigers were making their run to the NCAA championship game, he told it often and versions of it appeared in newspapers nationwide.
The sight of a "For Sale" sign on Calipari's lawn now might cause those same fans to panic.
After three straight trips to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament, Calipari's status in Memphis is secure. Keeping him, not driving him out, is the goal for fans now.
"He's the biggest name in sports in the city and I don't think it's close," said Chris Vernon, the host of Fox Sports Radio's afternoon drive show in Memphis. "People recognize how important he is to the success of this program. He's created a national program in Conference USA. Very few coaches could pull that off."
While Monday's midnight game at Memphis against the University of Massachusetts was ESPN's official tip-off of the college basketball season, it was also a night that very much put Calipari in the spotlight.
In addition to pitting his former team against his current one, Calipari (220 wins at Memphis) with a victory had the chance to pass Larry Finch (220 from 1986 to 1997) as the Tigers' all-time winningest coach.
That is an honor Calipari said he isn't sure he deserves.
"I'm happy I left Mass before I had an opportunity to win more games than Jack Leaman. Jack should always be the winningest coach," Calipari said. "Here the winningest coach should be Larry Finch. Larry Finch is an icon. Elvis and Larry Finch are icons here."
He might be selling himself a bit short. In Amherst, Calipari made basketball relevant by taking the Minutemen to five straight NCAA Tournaments while becoming arguably the biggest sports personality western Massachusetts had ever seen.
He's attained similar status along the banks of the Mississippi River.
"He's huge in Memphis. People are always coming up to the table (in restaurant) talking to him asking for his time," said UMass coach Derek Kellogg, who played for Calipari at UMass and coached with him at Memphis. "He's unbelievable how he handles it. He's the face of the city of Memphis. It's not even close."
There was a love affair between the city and the Tigers long before Calipari arrived in 2000. Then known as Memphis State, the men's basketball team reached Final Fours in 1973 and 1985. But Memphis had struggled in the years before Calipari, its image tarnished by scandal and losing.
Calipari has never won fewer than 21 games, but three trips to the National Invitation Tournament in his first five seasons had the fans wondering if he was going to be as good as they had hoped.
But after back-to-back 33-4 seasons that resulted in trips to the Elite Eight, the 38-2 Tigers advanced to the 2008 National championship game and came within a Mario Chalmers 3-pointer of winning the national title.
On Saturday in a 90-63 victory over lowly Fairfield, the Tigers packed the 18,000-seat FedEx Forum and had two of the nation's most sought-after recruits in the building taking in the scene.
Even Geoff Calkins, the columnist for the Memphis Commercial Appeal who has feuded with Calipari at times, did not deny what the coach has accomplished.
"What he's done here is staggering," Calkins said. "Memphis has some tradition in basketball, but only delusional fans think it should be in the top 10 programs in the country, but currently it's one of the top five programs in the country. He's turned the program into a colossus."
Calkins said Calipari embodies Memphis' personality.
"He's part Barnum and Bailey, part pied piper, part James Naismith and part (legendary Tennessee politician) Boss Crump," Calkins said. "He loves to fight. All coaches have a chip on their shoulder, but his is extreme. In a way that reflects the city. People always feel like Nashville thinks it's better or that Memphis doesn't get enough credit."
Kevin Kane, the president and CEO of the Memphis Convention and Visitors Bureau, said Calipari has raised the city's esteem.
"He's completely revolutionized the spirit of sport in this city," Kane said. "He sells Memphis. The success of Tiger basketball goes hand-in-hand with how we feel about ourselves as a city.
"Last year's run to the championship game was a real unifying thing for this city," he added. "From a celebrity standpoint, he's one of the biggest things for Memphis since Elvis."

EMPHIS - The University of Massachusetts team charter touched down at 7 a.m. yesterday, carrying one last reminder of the trip's awkwardness. UMass sophomore Erin Calipari - the daughter of John Calipari, the Memphis coach whose team administered the 80-58 shellacking UMass endured hours earlier - had flown home with the Minutemen. Coach Derek Kellogg had no problem doing the favor for his mentor.
Kellogg slept for about 2 1/2 hours on the plane, then drove home and slept for another 2 1/2 hours. Calls and text messages flooded his phone, so many well wishes from folks in Memphis he no longer could sleep.
"I figured I might as well be up and at them and ready to go," Kellogg said.
Kellogg had shed the Memphis-connection subplot for good. More urgent matters lay ahead. He needed to watch film and make notes from the Memphis game. He needed to decide how best to continue installing his new offensive system. And he wanted to scour the campus for reinforcements to practice and, potentially, to play during games.
Despite the challenges ahead and the thoroughness of his team's defeat - the 12th-ranked Tigers led by as many as 27 points - Kellogg remained upbeat about the experience. The Minutemen next play Monday, hosting Jacksonville State, by which time the lessons of their loss, Kellogg hopes, will have made them a better team.
"The whole premise of playing that game was to get UMass on a national spotlight and to let each and every one of our guys understand where they're at," Kellogg said. "Hopefully everything was positive other than the outcome. Hopefully it was a wake-up call for some guys."
Kellogg's largest concern entering the season, he said, was his team's lack of depth, particularly in the frontcourt. Sophomore reserve forward Matt Hill likely tore his Achilles' tendon Monday night and will miss the remainder of the season, Kellogg said. The Minutemen are already without senior center Luke Bonner (knee injury) for a month, leaving Tony Gaffney as the only experienced forward on the roster.
Kellogg spent part of yesterday morning considering ways to add depth: posting advertisements for walk-ons, chatting with other coaches in the athletic department, and perhaps even attending a football practice. The Minutemen have only nine healthy players, three of whom are freshmen with zero experience.
"We need some good athletes with size to give us some bodies during practice, and potentially plug a few holes during games," Kellogg said.
What players remain will continue learning their offensive system. Kellogg's Dribble-Drive Motion offense is "40-50 percent implemented," he said, and they have yet to master the basic concepts. Kellogg watched the same transition as an assistant while Calipari installed the offense at Memphis. The difference is, those Tigers teams could overwhelm opponents with depth and talent.
"We're trying to play too fast and in a hurry instead of trying to play fast and under control," Kellogg said. "I've seen it before. Guys are trying to play so fast it leads to some turnovers."
UMass showed its inexperience most during a self-destructive stretch midway through the first half against Memphis, when turnovers all but handed the game away. The Minutemen actually led, 16-15, with less than eight minutes remaining in the first half after Ricky Harris drilled a 3-pointer.
The Minutemen committed six consecutive turnovers before attempting their next shot. Memphis capitalized by unleashing an 11-0 rally.
UMass committed 24 turnovers, a problem that began with senior point guard Chris Lowe. After committing 10 turnovers against Southern Illinois, Lowe made five against the Tigers.
The Memphis game solved one problem. On Friday, Kellogg wondered who would become the team's leaders. Gaffney provided an emphatic answer with ability and effort. He grabbed 19 rebounds, scored 16 points, and blocked 5 shots in 34 minutes. He pressed like a maniac until the final, hopeless seconds.
"We need more guys like Tony, man," guard Ricky Harris said.
Gaffney won over more than his teammates. Calipari gushed about him, calling him the best player on the floor.
Kellogg appreciated the outpouring from the Memphis crowd, 18,254 strong despite the 11 p.m. local start time. The fans gave him a standing ovation during pregame introductions.
But the emotions of returning to where he called home for eight years still proved taxing. And that was before losing by 22 in the third game of his head coaching career.
"It's been kind of a long couple days," Kellogg said.
assachusetts men's basketball coach Derek Kellogg wished he could have cloned Tony Gaffney Monday night against No. 12 Memphis.
Anyone big enough to battle with the Tigers inside would have been just fine, as a thin UMass frontcourt couldn't contend in an 80-58 loss to Memphis against former UMass coach and Kellogg mentor John Calipari at the FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tenn.
"I just want to say how unbelievable I thought Tony Gaffney played tonight: 16 points, 19 rebounds and five blocks - we just needed one more Tony Gaffney out there, a guy who could do all the little things," Kellogg said after the game.
The Minutemen played without 7-foot-1 starting center Luke Bonner (sprained knee) and lost 6-foot-7 reserve forward Matt Hill (left leg) early in the second half. The Tigers made UMass pay down-low, scoring 52 points in the paint.
"Boy I'll tell you, I thought we were thin before the season started with anyone 6-foot-6 or over. Calling all students, calling all students," Kellogg joked.
Both teams struggled from the floor and with turnovers, but UMass' 23 giveaways led to a 24-4 Memphis edge in points off turnovers - and the easy Memphis victory.
The Minutemen (1-2) made it tough on the Tigers (2-0) defensively, keeping the game close - and even jumping out to an early lead - before entering halftime down 33-25. But Memphis' talent and athleticism came out in the second half as the Minutemen wore down physically.
"I thought we did a great job in the first half. If the ball had bounced the right way a few times, it could have been a little closer," Kellogg said. "Memphis is a really long, talented and athletic team - they go 10-11 [players] deep and all those guys are top 50 high school players, let's call it the way it is."
Gaffney's stellar performance on both ends of the floor and Ricky Harris' 12 first-half points kept UMass in the game entering the break. Even with 15 turnovers in the first 20 minutes, UMass was down just eight points thanks to 34.2 percent shooting from Memphis, including 1-of-11 from 3-point range.
"There were some things on the turnover part that I just couldn't believe we did. It's what gave the game away," Kellogg said.
Memphis shot better in the second half to pull away, led by the 19 points from freshman sensation Tyreke Evans. Robert Dozier added 18 points and Antonio Anderson had a double-double with 15 points and 12 rebounds.
UMass point guard Chris Lowe struggled for the second straight game, scoring just five points on 2-of-8 shooting. Lowe, who had 10 turnovers and no assists in his last game against Southern Illinois, had three assists and five turnovers.
With the victory, Calipari became the all-time winningest coach at Memphis with 221, eclipsing the previous mark set by Larry Finch. But both Calipari and Kellogg, who played under Calipari at UMass and served under him as an assistant at Memphis for eight years, were honored by the crowd.
"Absolutely. It felt great," Kellogg said about getting a standing ovation from the crowd of 18,254 at the FedEx Forum. "It felt like they appreciated the eight years of service I gave to the Memphis program and the university. It was kind of surreal walking out, seeing all sorts of family, friends and former players out here. But when the game got started you kind of forget you're at the FedEx Forum."
Despite the poor shooting (20-for-66, 30 percent) and 23 turnovers, Kellogg was mostly pleased with his team's effort against a much more physical and talented team.
"To come over as banged up as we are, as inexperienced as we are, putting in a new system and really expecting to win may be a little farfetched," Kellogg said. "But I did expect for us to compete and play hard, and I thought at times - maybe not for the full 40 minutes - but for 30 minutes of the game we did compete."
UMass has a full week off before its home opener Nov. 24 against Jacksonville State. Bonner isn't expected back until mid-December, and Kellogg didn't seem optimistic after the game that Hill will be available anytime soon.
"From all indications, it wasn't real good what happened to him tonight. He may have torn his Achilles [tendon] again," Kellogg said.
Memphis finished 2-of-19 from 3-point range in the game (10.5 percent). UMass was 20.8 percent (5-of-24). … The score was 9-9 eight minutes into the game, with the teams combining for 7-of-33 (21 percent) from the field and 1-of-11 from long range. … UMass turned the ball over on six straight possessions midway through the first half, leading to a Memphis run which pushed the lead to 26-16. … Only four different players (Harris, Gaffney, Lowe and Anthony Gurley) scored in the first half for UMass.
hen Derek Kellogg was introduced as the head coach at the University of Massachusetts, the 18,254 fans packing FedExForum at 11 p.m. Monday gave him a long and loud standing ovation.
A couple hours later, they probably didn’t feel that much love.
Despite a roster short on size and depth, Kellogg made things as ugly as possible for his former boss, University of Memphis coach John Calipari. But in the end, he couldn’t deny Calipari a record-breaking victory that officially made him the winningest coach in program history.
The No. 13-ranked Tigers beat UMass, 80-58, to give Calipari win No. 221 at Memphis, passing legend Larry Finch. But it was hardly a thing of beauty for Calipari, not only due to the raw emotions of beating his 8-year assistant but because Kellogg exposed quite plainly how far his young team has to go.
“They have a better idea of what I’m truly running because they know it, so they have an idea of what bothers it,” Calipari said. “And one of them is, give us open shots and close your eyes and hope we don’t make them.
Despite the final margin, which expanded rapidly as UMass (1-2) tired at the end, the Tigers (2-0) were ugly offensively for much of the game, making 30-of-77 from the field and 2-of-19 from the 3-point line. The Tigers also failed to win the rebounding battle, getting out-boarded 49-48 despite a significant height advantage.
One player who did rebound for the Tigers, however, was senior guard Antonio Anderson, who snatched a career-high 12 to go with 15 points and five assists. Anderson’s leadership was crucial on a night when the Tigers seemed out of sorts, taking shots outside of their normal offense and failing to finish multiple transition opportunities created by UMass’ 24 turnovers.
“It was one of those nights, guys didn’t make shots, but we picked it up on the defensive end,” Anderson said. “It was an awful shooting night. I just tried to settle guys down a little bit, slow things up and tell them we’re going to be OK and talk to them. If guys get rattled a little bit, I have to slow their minds down and get them thinking on the team’s terms on not on their own thing. Guys figured that out a little bit and picked it up.”
On a night when the Tigers asked their fans to stay up late, they did little to provide a wake-up call early in the game.

Struggling offensively against former Memphis assistants has become a familiar theme, first with Tony Barbee’s UTEP teams and now with UMass.
“I kind of figured it was going to be a game like that,” Dozier said. “I already had in my mind, it’s going to be a struggle. It’s going to be a chess match. He knows everything we can do; our weaknesses and our strengths. It’s what I expected, but we’ll get better as the season goes on. It’s still early.”
Freshman guard Tyreke Evans, who started the game with three missed layups and three turnovers (he had six overall), got going by converting a steal into a dunk, then making a 3-pointer from the wing to give Memphis a 22-16 lead.
Carrying a 33-25 lead into the second half, the Tigers kept the margin at low double-digits until the 8-minute mark when UMass began to wear down. The Minutemen finished 20-of-66 from the field but got a monster effort from senior forward Tony Gaffney, who had 16 points and 19 rebounds.
Evans led the Tigers with 19 points on 7-of-17 shooting with six rebounds and four assists. Dozier had 18 for the Tigers, who scored 24 fast-break points.
For Calipari, however, the best moment Monday wasn’t the result of anything his players did. It came right at the beginning, when Kellogg got his warm welcome.
“What a classy group of fans; on top of it it’s 12 o’clock and there’s 17,000. Was it 18,000?” Calipari said. “That’s ridiculous. That ovation for Derek made me – I wanted to cry. You’re sitting there thinking, this is what it’s all about.”
Once the game began, Kellogg said his thoughts about coming back to Memphis got lost amid the competition.
“It was almost surreal walking out and seeing former players, families, friends and all other sorts of people out there,” he said. “It was strange, yet also interesting at the same time. I thought our guys played great and gave a wonderful effort, especially in the first half. We followed the gameplan.”
