Harris leading UMass to tournament in rebuilding year
By Adam Miller, Massachusetts Daily Collegian Staff, 3/11/2010

Even as a freshman, Ricky Harris built a reputation on stepping up for the Massachusetts men’s basketball team when the postseason is on the line.

He scored seven points in seven minutes against Alabama in the first round of the National Invitational Tournament on March 13, 2007. He converted 5-of-6 from the free-throw line, including one with 14.3 seconds left to put UMass up, 82-80.

The Crimson Tide drained a 3-pointer at the buzzer to send the game into overtime after then-sophomore Chris Lowe converted on a free throw of his own. The Minutemen eventually battled back and won, 89-87.

As a sophomore, Harris led UMass with 23 points as a starter in the 2008 NIT Quarterfinals before a 16-point performance against Florida in the Semifinals. His contribution helped his former coach, Travis Ford, get the Minutemen to the NIT Championship against Ohio State, where they fell short in a 92-85 loss.

In the ideal situation, Harris would want his last season to be his best, but with UMass in rebuilding mode, just getting into the Atlantic 10 tournament was going to be a challenge for the second year in a row.

The Minutemen needed either a win over Rhode Island or a Saint Joseph’s loss in order to avoid missing the A-10 tournament.

Similar to years past, Harris lived up to the challenge with 28 points on Saturday against URI as he lifted UMass (12-19, 5-11 A-10) to a 69-67 victory over the Rams. He also hit the biggest shot of the game, a layup with three seconds remaining to give the Minutemen the win and a first-round matchup with Charlotte.

Harris showed once again that he wasn’t ready for his last game wearing the No. 5 jersey for UMass. Even with a 5-for-13 shooting night, he finished the game with 24 points thanks to 11-of-12 free-throw shooting, boosting his team to its first A-10 tournament win since 2002.

The Minutemen will get to play third-seeded Richmond for the first time this season.

“Ricky Harris is really leading us and playing like a senior should play in tournament play,” UMass coach Derek Kellogg said following the win over Charlotte.

Throughout the season, Harris has been frustrated with UMass losing as many games as it has. However, he never gave up on the inexperience or struggles facing the Minutemen with the hope of leaving his legacy on some sort of positive note, even if it isn’t the NCAA tournament.

Harris was the leading scorer in 10 of the last 13 games with at least 20 points in nine of those contests. Even when he scored the team-high in points during that stretch, UMass was still 4-6.

In fact, the two times he scored at least 30 points (Feb. 6 against URI and March 3 against La Salle), the Minutemen lost. To make matters worse, they lost point guard David Gibbs to a broken foot, which gave Kellogg no choice but to start Freddie Riley, giving UMass three freshmen in the starting lineup.

Regardless of the box score, Harris continued to work with the younger players and worked hard in practice while staying optimistic.

His patience eventually paid off.

Freshman Javorn Farrell had two blocks in the win against the 49ers while forward Terrell Vinson hit a jumper to put the Minutemen up by three points with 54.8 seconds left in the game. UMass held on for the victory after Charlotte called a timeout and drew a technical foul for having six players out on the floor.

Even if Friday is the last time Harris ever puts on a uniform, he can leave knowing that he broke eight years of losing in the A-10 tournament in a year that was supposed to be about the future.

“It’s unbelievable, and it’s a pleasure to watch them,” Harris said of his teammates following the first round of the A-10 tournament. “I wish I had another year, because next year they will be a good team with well-rounded individuals.”

Harris puts team first at UMass
By Matt Vautour, Daily Hampshire Gazette Staff Writer, 3/11/2010

At some point Ricky Harris had to have been tempted to go it alone.

The University of Massachusetts men's basketball team was struggling. An NCAA Tournament bid or an Atlantic 10 championship were long shots and his young teammates were talented but inconsistent.

So many players in his shoes would have tried to amass statistics to make up for the lack of wins. An A-10 scoring title was possible, and 2,000 career points wasn't out of reach. Maybe one or both would look good to the European scouts who might offer him a contract after the season.

But if he was tempted it never showed. Other than briefly expressing disappointment at being named to just the Atlantic 10 all-conference third team, Harris has kept whatever personal aspirations he might have to himself.

He buried any alpha dog fantasies and embraced being a role model and big brother to his younger teammates.

And while Derek Kellogg didn't recruit him, Harris still bought in to the young coach's building plan even though he'll graduate before its fruits are truly realized.

Harris even changed positions. When neither David Gibbs nor Gary Correia were suited to taking on most of the work at point guard, Harris, a lifelong shooting guard, moved over and played the point, adding to his leadership responsibilities.

When the Minutemen struggled through some difficult losses, Harris took far more than his share of the blame, even if his teammates' growing pains deserved more culpability.

At the high points, Harris praised their development. He'd tell a room full of media in press conferences and anyone who followed his Twitter posts how proud he was of his "little brothers."

Those little brothers have been devoted to him. Prior to the regular-season finale against Rhode Island on Saturday, Terrell Vinson said he wanted "to win the game for Ricky" and afterward Javorn Farrell said the Minutemen wanted to make a run in the Atlantic 10 Tournament for Harris.

Even Kellogg wanted to win the game against the Rams for his senior. "From the bottom of my heart I wanted to win this for Ricky," Kellogg said on Saturday.

The Minutemen beat Rhode Island largely because of Harris, who not only hit the game-winning shot, but made several huge plays down the stretch.. He was equally important in Tuesday's 59-56 win over Charlotte in the opening round of the A-10 Tournament.

So far this March has been "Ricky's Run."

He knows the end of college career is coming. Harris was nostalgic going into the senior day win over Rhode Island and plenty sentimental afterward.

He had the presence of mind to realize he was in the middle of a moment he'd never forget and raced into the stands to hug his mother following his game-winning shot.

Maybe the ride ends at 9 p.m. Friday when the Minutemen match up in Atlantic City against a Richmond team that's bound for the NCAA Tournament no matter what happens.

If it does, Harris will have left his mark as the school's No. 3 all-time scorer and one of the program's most likable players.

He'll have played a big part in helping UMass get to the National Invitation Tournament final as a sophomore and helped snap the eight-game Atlantic 10 Tournament losing streak as a senior.

And he'll have had a hand in the development of his young teammates who could be the cornerstone of the program's future.

But Harris, who pumped his fist and smiled as he walked out of Halton Arena on Tuesday, will worry about his legacy later.

He's hoping to make his final chapter last a little longer.

Minutemen seek another upset in A-10
By Matt Vautour, Daily Hampshire Gazette Staff Writer, 3/12/2010

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - As senior guard Ricky Harris watched television coverage of higher seeds Syracuse and Villanova losing quarterfinal games in the Big East Tournament on Thursday, he got excited thinking about the University of Massachusetts men's basketball team playing tonight in the Atlantic 10 quarterfinals.

"During tournament time, anybody can beat anybody," Harris said. "No matter where you're seeded, it's the tournament and wins are up for grabs. Whoever wants it is going to take it.

"I think we're focused," he added. "We're ready. We have two big wins back-to-back. Hopefully it can carry over and we come out with the same energy ... It's do or die right now. I'm trying to make this moment last as long as I can."

The 11th-seeded Minutemen (12-19) play No. 3 Richmond (24-7) at 9 p.m. at Boardwalk Hall.

UMass or the Spiders will advance to the semifinals at 3:30 p.m. Saturday to face the winner of tonight's game at 6:30 between No. 2 Xavier and No. 7 Dayton.

Richmond (24-7) won the regular-season meeting against the visiting Minutemen 70-63 in overtime on Jan. 13. That game featured 14 blocked shots by Spider big man Darrius Garrett, the second-best single game total in Division I history. However, the swat total was an aberration for Garrett, who has only 58 total blocks this season.

"Hopefully we can get into his body and draw fouls a little bit," Harris said. "We have to continue playing the way we've been playing and attacking the basket."

Richmond junior guard Kevin Anderson, who was named the Atlantic 10 player of the year, scored 19 points in that game and is averaging 17.8 points and 2.7 assists this season.

UMass and the Spiders are both coming off close wins over Charlotte. The Minutemen beat the 49ers 59-56 on Tuesday in the first round of the tournament.

Richmond upended Charlotte 89-84 in overtime in their final regular-season game Saturday. It was the 10th win in the Spiders' last 11 games, which helped them finish third in the A-10 and earn a bye for Tuesday's first round. The lone blemish in that stretch was a 78-76 loss at Xavier in double overtime.

UMass coach Derek Kellogg said the Minutemen tonight will take an approach similar to the one that nearly earned them an upset win in January.

"I think it's a similar game plan. It was so long ago that both teams have changed a little bit," Kellogg said. "I don't think they shot the ball well when we were down there. That concerns me."

Richmond is particularly dangerous from 3-point range. Their .350 shooting percentage is second in the league and each of their top four scorers is shooting at least 34 percent.

Senior guard David Gonzalvez is best at 36.7 percent. He is the Spiders' second leading scorer at 14.3 points per game.

The biggest advantage for UMass appears to be on the glass. The Minutemen lead the A-10 with 40.2 rebounds per game, while Richmond is 13th at 32.7. A poor-shooting night could be costly for the Spiders, who average just nine offensive rebounds per game.

"It's big because you can't give them extra opportunities," Kellogg said. "That would be one of the keys to the game if we can dominate the boards on both ends."

BUBBLE TEAMS - Today's Atlantic 10 Tournament games will get some national attention because three teams on the bubble for NCAA at-large bid consideration will be in action.

No. 5 Rhode Island will face No. 4 Saint Louis at 2:30 p.m. Despite losing to UMass on Saturday, the Rams still have a decent shot of getting in the NCAA Tournament. The Billikens are in contention as well, but might need to get to the finals of the A-10 tournament to earn a bid.

No. 7 Dayton faltered down the stretch and could improve its chances greatly if it upsets No. 2 Xavier in the 6:30 p.m. game.

Top-seed Temple will face No. 8 St. Bonaventure at noon.

TV COVERAGE - The UMass-Richmond game will be broadcast by the CBS College Sports syndication package, but no New England station has picked it up. Fans with satellite TV may be able to find it on Comcast Sports South, Cox RI, TCN Mid-Atlantic, or FSN Ohio depending on their tier of service.

The Saturday semifinal games will be broadcast by CBS College Sports and the final at 1 p.m. Sunday will be on CBS.

TICKETS - Tickets remain for each of the sessions of the A-10 Tournament. They can be purchased in advance through TicketMaster or at the Boardwalk Hall Box Office.

ARACHNOPHOBIA - Richmond has been a difficult opponent for UMass this year in most sports, which is 2-6 in games against the Spiders.

The women's basketball and field hockey teams were both knocked out of A-10 Tournaments by Richmond.

UMass Battles, But Falls To Richmond In A-10s, 77-72
No. 11seeded Minutemen finish season with 12-20 record
From UMass Athletics, 3/12/2010

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - After a nice run to reach the Atlantic 10 Quarterfinals, the UMass basketball season came to an end on Friday night at Boardwalk Hall in a 77-72 loss to Richmond. The third-seeded Spiders advanced to the A-10 Semifinals to play No. 2 seed Xavier on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. The 11th-seeded Minutemen finish their second season under Derek Kellogg with a 12-20 record.

The Spiders (25-7 overall) were deadly from 3-point range making 11-for-20 in the game including 9-of-13 in the first half. Richmond led the game from wire-to-wire, building a lead as large as 17.

Senior Ricky Harris played in his final game as a Minuteman and finished with 19 points, giving him 1,960 in his career, to rank third all-time at UMass. Harris also finished second in career made 3-pointers (276), second in 3-pointers attempted (795), third in field goal attempts (1,534), fourth in career steals (147) and fifth in games played (129).

Junior Anthony Gurley, who always plays well at Boardwalk Hall, matched his career-high with 24 points to lead UMass. His previous 24-point game came vs. Michigan State in November's Legends Classic.

Richmond, a probable NCAA Tournament team had five players score in double-was led by David Gonzalvez (15 points). Also chipping in to the well-rounded effort were Ryan Butler (14 points), Kevin Smith (14 points), Justin Harper (13 points), and Kevin Anderson (13 points).

Terrell Vinson had 10 points and eight rebounds, while Sean Carter led the Minutemen on the boards with nine rebounds.

UMass rallied from 17 down at halftime to cut the deficit to just four on a 3-pointer by Gary Correia with 40 seconds left in the second half. The Minutemen later drew to within three with 7.3 seconds left on three free throws by Harris, but Kevin Smith's breakaway dunk on the ensuing inbounds iced the game for the Spiders.

Freddie Riley's follow lay-in brought the Minutemen to within eight at 66-58 with 2:47 remaining.

Richmond led 38-21 at halftime as they made 9-of-13 from 3-point range. Butler and Gonzalvez each canned three 3-pointers. UMass was just 1-of-10 from beyond the mark in the first 20 minutes.

The Spiders jumped out to a 19-6 lead on Butler's second 3-pointer of the game with 11:03 left in the first. Richmond started out hot from 3-point range hitting treys for each of its first four baskets of the game and a 12-6 lead with 14:30 left in the first. The 3-pointers came from four different players (Anderson, Harper, Gonzalvez and Butler).

QUOTES

MASSACHUSETTS HEAD COACH Derek Kellogg
Opening Statement
"First of all, it's tough to see a player like Ricky Harris end like this, with all he's meant to UMass basketball and the Amherst area with the perseverance and character as a whole. He has been a tremendous asset to our program basketball wise. I was fortunate to be able to coach him for two years. As for the game, we played a NCAA tournament team on a neutral court who was 25-7 and they shot lights out in the first half. That was my biggest worry. We looked young at times. They (Richmond) are a very good team."

On his second trip to Atlantic City and how his team progressed throughout the year
"We grew up a little bit, but, are playing a ton of freshman. Ricky had to take on a lot of different hats this year and he kept this team together. He played his best basketball the last month of the season and we are fortunate, we played our best over the last two weeks of the season. This was a great experience for our guys; they kept playing toward the end."

On the future
"If you look at our team, next to the teams we played, we have looked longer and skinnier. This is an important off-season for us, knowing the A10 and how hard we have to work. We know that and it's going to start when we get back from Spring Break."

MASSACHUSETTS SENIOR GUARD Ricky Harris
On Richmond making shots early
"It was tough. They had a lot of good looks and converted on all of them. That put us in a hole early. When you are playing a team like that you have to take of each possession."

On his career at UMass
"I am pretty disappointed right now. I have been here for four years and have one post-season win. This is UMass basketball and we are known for winning game. I can't accept that right, I have a lot of pride and I thought I let my team down today."

RICHMOND HEAD COACH CHRIS MOONEY
Opening Statement:
"Certainly we are pleased to win and advance. I thought we looked good in the first half and shooting the ball so well obviously helps. UMass was terrific to get back in the game. They had a lot of energy and effort and made a lot of shots, and outplayed us in the second half."

On Kevin Smith's performance:
"Kevin Smith's contribution for us was tremendous. That's probably the best game he's played this year, and he's played a lot of good games for us."

RICHMOND JUNIOR GUARD KEVIN ANDERSON
On the opportunity for redemption against Xavier:
"We're happy to get to play them tomorrow, and happy to hold UMass off to get this win. We're ready to play Xavier. We thought that game could have gone either way. Maybe if I hit that shot late or if just a couple of things would have went our way, we could have won that game. We're glad to get them again tomorrow."

RICHMOND HEAD COACH CHRIS MOONEY
On Massachusetts' comeback:
"They made a ton of shots, to their credit. Anthony Gurley was on fire. That caused us to extend our defense a little bit and they were able to penetrate. I don't think we were lulled to sleep necessarily. I think as the course of the game went, they were extremely aggressive, playing with nothing to lose, while we were trying to protect the lead more than being aggressive."

On Xavier:
"We really came out of the last game, realizing that we really played a truly special game. I think we are looking forward to the rematch because at the end of the regulation it was a dead heat and they were able to win the game in overtime. We're looking forward to it. I know they'll be ready. I know they'll be prepared. I know they're a great program. We're just pleased to be able to advance and try to play Xavier again."


Spiders strike early, end UMass season
By Matt Vautour, Daily Hampshire Gazette Staff Writer, 3/13/2010

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - The University of Massachusetts men's basketball team ran out of magic Friday night.

The Minutemen saw firsthand why Richmond is considered a lock for an NCAA Tournament berth as the Spiders made 11 3-pointers. A desperate late-game surge by UMass came up short as the Minutemen fell 77-72 in the quarterfinals of the Atlantic 10 Tournament at Boardwalk Hall.

UMass finished its season at 12-20 -- its first 20-loss season since 1982-83.

No. 3 Richmond (25-7) advanced to face No. 2 Xavier at 3:30 p.m. Saturday in the semifinals.

The loss ended the Minuteman career of Ricky Harris who finished as the third all-time scorer with 1,960 points. He had a tough night shooting the ball, making just seven of 20 shots and one of nine 3-point tries for 19 points.

"I'm pretty disappointed right now," Harris said. "I've been here four years and we only won one Atlantic 10 Tournament game. I can't be happy about that.

"It's tough right now," he added. "I'm upset with myself and feel like I let my teammates down today."

UMass coach Derek Kellogg saluted his departing senior.

"It's tough to lose a player like Ricky Harris and the class and perseverance and character that he's shown throughout his career," Kellogg said. "He's been an asset to our program. To see him go is difficult.

"I'm fortunate I was able to coach him," he added. "... He's one of the faces of UMass basketball."

When the teams met during the regular season on Jan. 13, the Minutemen wiped out a 14-point deficit to force overtime before the Spiders won 70-63. But UMass could not quite repeat the feat on Friday.

Anthony Gurley tried to lift the Minutemen with 19 of his career-high 24 points after intermission, including seven straight that brought UMass within 46-38 with just under 11 minutes left in the game. But Richmond went on a 15-6 surge to increase their lead back to 17 points.

The Minutemen made one last run to get within four with 50 seconds left. After Gary Correia hit a 3-pointer, he stole the inbounds pass and hit Harris for a 3-pointer that made the score 71-67.

After Kevin Anderson made two free throws for the Spiders, Terrell Vinson scored inside with 17.3 seconds left. But Richmond kept making its free throws as Justin Harper knocked two down. Harris was fouled shooting a 3-pointer and made all three from the line to cut the deficit to 75-72 with 7.3 seconds left.

But the Spiders threw a touchdown pass to David Gonzalvez who dunked with 5.7 seconds left to clinch the win.

"Even though we got down, our guys kept playing and competed to the end," Kellogg said.

In the Minutemen's back-to-back wins leading up to this game, they avoided the big early deficits that often plagued them in losses this season.

But Richmond opened a 38-21 halftime lead that put UMass on its heels. The Minutemen had hoped to keep the Spiders from shooting well from the outside and control the glass, but Richmond was hot from outside and made 9-of-13 3-pointers in the first half and outrebounded UMass 18-16.

"They shot lights out tonight," Kellogg said. "That was my biggest worry."

Harris agreed.

"It was tough. They got a lot of good looks and they took advantage of all of them," he said. "That put us in a hole early."

The halftime deficit marked the fourth time this season UMass trailed by 17 points at the break.

Gonzalvez led Richmond with 15 points, while Kevin Anderson (13), Ryan Butler (14), Justin Harper (13) and Kevin Smith (14) joined him in double figures.

Terrell Vinson had 10 points and eight rebounds for the Minutemen.

NOTES - UMass Chancellor Robert Holub was among the 6,027 fans in attendance.

After ending their eight-year losing streak in the Atlantic 10 Tournament with a 59-56 win at Charlotte on Tuesday, the Minutemen could not snap their losing streak in Atlantic City. The loss was their sixth straight at Boardwalk Hall.

UMass has lost four A-10 Tournament games in the former home of the Miss America Pageant and dropped two earlier this season to Rutgers and Michigan State as part of the Legends Classic in the building.

Year to build on for Minutemen freshmen
By Matt Vautour, Daily Hampshire Gazette Staff Writer, 3/13/2010

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - The end of the 2009-10 season feels a lot different for the University of Massachusetts men's basketball program than it would have if it had ended six days earlier.

The last-second win over Rhode Island on Saturday to make the Atlantic 10 Tournament and the strong showing Tuesday in the 59-56 victory at Charlotte to advance to the quarterfinals in Atlantic City sparked some good feelings that even Friday's loss to Richmond couldn't erase.

Senior Ricky Harris was tremendous in those two wins, adding to his legacy, and the Minutemen rookies elevated their play lately as well.

On paper, this was a 12-20 season following a 12-18 campaign. That's treading water at best.

But this season's value was the foundation it provided for the Minutemen's five freshmen. Getting to experience two A-10 Tournament games could prove valuable.

UMass coach Derek Kellogg got dealt a tough hand when he arrived. He inherited a program that was in tough shape, although on the surface it didn't appear to be in trouble.

Kellogg's predecessor, Travis Ford, had considerable success with transfers and players he inherited. He left after a trip to the NIT final, leaving the appearance that the program was on the brink of a breakthrough. But during his three years in Amherst, Ford signed just two high school players who made a significant impact at UMass - Harris and Chris Lowe - and both are now gone.

Ford's final two years of high school recruits produced 10 commitments and zero impact players. Their struggles left Kellogg lacking veterans this season. But that led to not only lots of minutes, but considerable responsibility for the Minutemen's young players that could be valuable down the road.

The four rookies who played all showed promise at times. Terrell Vinson has the most star potential. There were times that he was the best player for UMass on the court. He will likely be the Minutemen's best player next year.

Freddie Riley showed off one of the prettiest 3-point strokes UMass has seen in recent years, but he'll be asked to go from a streaky scorer to a reliable one as the Minutemen will miss Harris' perimeter scoring.

Javorn Farrell is the most intriguing of the bunch. Despite his youth, he emerged as a leader and is undoubtedly a future captain, a role he could see as soon as next year. He showed maturity and savvy beyond his years and a versatility to play any position but center.

Sampson Carter struggled a little more than most of his classmates, but at times showed the ability to be a solid wing.

All four will have to increase their scoring to help counter the departure of Harris. The Minutemen should get more help from versatile freshman Raphiael Putney, who redshirted this year, point guard Daryl Traynham and big man Maxie Esho.

And at midseason, Jesse Morgan, a scorer who is sitting out as an academic nonqualifier, could also join the Minutemen.

It's an important summer for the program. The level of dedication the returning players show will likely determine how big a step forward the program takes.

But there's reason to be hopeful.

UMass falls to Richmond in A-10 Quarterfinals
By Adam Miller, Massachusetts Daily Collegian Staff, 3/21/2010

The Atlantic 10 tournament has not been kind to Ricky Harris and the Massachusetts men’s basketball team. In a year when the Minutemen least expected it, they won their first A-10 tournament game in eight years against Charlotte, but couldn’t continue their rally against Richmond, who finished as the weekend’s runner-up.

UMass (12-20, 5-11 A-10) battled back from a 17-point deficit, but couldn’t pull ahead in its 77-72 loss to the Spiders.

“We played an NCAA team on a neutral court that’s [26-8] and they shot lights out tonight, especially in the first half,” UMass coach Derek Kellogg said following the loss. “That was one of my biggest worries.”

Guard Anthony Gurley did everything he could offensively to extend Harris’s senior with 24 points on 8-of-11 shooting and seven rebounds, but the Minutemen never cut the lead below three points.

Harris finished his last game at UMass with 19 points and became the third all-time leading scorer in school history. But Richmond’s 55 percent 3-point shooting proved too much for UMass to handle. The Spiders (26-8, 13-3 A-10) used 9-for-13 shooting from beyond the arc to take a 38-21 lead into the half.

“They got a lot of good looks and converted on all of them, took advantage early and put us in a bit of a hole,” Harris said of their first half shooting. “When you’re playing a team like that, you have got to take advantage of each possession and each defensive stop and each defensive opportunity.”

Although the first half took UMass out of the game, the second half went much differently.

The Minutemen scored 51 second-half points with Gurley and Harris combining for 34 of them. Gurley first cracked Richmond’s double-digit deficit with a 3-pointer to cut the lead to 46-28 with 10 minutes, 53 seconds left to play.

The Spiders eventually undid UMass’ efforts and regained a 17-point lead with 6:53 to play. The Minutemen stormed back with a 12-3 run to once again cut the lead to eight.

With a six-point lead and seven seconds left in the game, Kevin Anderson fouled Harris on a 3-point attempt. The senior made all three shots to put UMass down three points.

However, the Minutemen couldn’t get the ball back as Kevin Smith converted on a pass by Ryan Butler with a dunk to put the game out of reach.

Although UMass won back-to-back games to earn a spot in the quarterfinals, Harris was still upset with his leadership during the postseason in his four years as a collegiate basketball player.

“I’ve been here four years and I’ve only won one postseason game in the Atlantic 10 conference,” Harris said. “I can’t really be happy about that because this is UMass basketball and we’re known for winning games. This is what we do here, and I just can’t accept that right now.”

Kellogg praised his senior leader after the game and said he would be willing to help him in whatever capacity he needed. He also believes that Harris will be good enough to play some type of professional basketball and be successful.

With a team as young as the Minutemen, Kellogg believes this summer will be important for his team as it now has the experience of playing against A-10 opponents. One of the areas he believes his team needs to improve on the most is its strength.

“If you look at our team when we stand next to the other teams we play since they are a little bit older and more mature, we always look, I’d say, longer and skinnier and not totally developed,” Kellogg said.

He hopes that the process of maturing along with spending time in the weight room as part of an NCAA team will help change that for next season.
