Pre-season report from Head Coach Derek Kellogg: “If he can get his body right, Hashim can do some special things for us. This year is going to be a great year for him to get his mind in a right frame of mind to come out and dominate this year. To get his body in physical shape that he can play 20 to 25 minutes a game. I'm excited to see what level he brings every day. I'm excited to see what kind of shape he gets into and that's a big challenge for him to take that on.”
Sat out the season under NCAA transfer rules.
Pre-season report from Head Coach Derek Kellogg: “Big City comes to UMass after playing on the high level of basketball at Memphis. He knows what it takes to compete at that level. He can be a big and physical force for us and sitting out this season will give him a chance to get ready to play two years at UMass and be a monster. This season, he will be an important part of the team going up against our starters and showing them what it takes to play at that highest level.”
