We have an update on two of UMass' basketball pros. 2008 alum Gary Forbes continues to get a great chance to play major minutes with the Denver Nuggets. On Monday night, he scored 15 points and grabbed four rebounds in a start as part of the Nuggets 134-111 win after Golden State. The win secured Denver a 50-win season and the No. 5 seed in the postseason. Denver will play Oklahoma City in the playoffs.
Tony Gaffney, who finished his UMass career in 2009, picked up a playoff win last night in the D-League as his Utah Flash upset the No. 1 seeded Iowa Energy, 119-118 in Iowa. The decisive Game 3 is tonight. Gaffney started and had eight points and three blocks for the Flash.
