There was a UMass mention by ESPN.com Senior Writer Andy Katz (@ESPNAndyKatz) in today's 3-Point Shot on the College Basketball Nation Blog. The following was written in reference to the Minutemen being one of several teams with the potential to unseat Xavier from the top spot in the A-10.
"...Meanwhile, Xavier's hold on a top spot in the A-10 is about to end. The timing of Butler and VCU joining the conference doesn't bode well for the Musketeers. Xavier will have a hard time staying in the rear-view mirror of those two teams, front runner Saint Louis and re-surging Saint Joseph's and UMass, let alone traditional title contender Temple for one more season before the Owls leave for the Big East."
