This weekend UMass will play host to St. Bonaventure (Friday at 2:30 pm) and Duquesne (Sunday at 1 pm) at Rudd Field. The Minutemen are currently in a five-way log-jam for ninth place in the 16-team Atlantic 10 standings. Three teams are a mere one point ahead in a tie for fifth. The top eight teams after the end of next weekend's regular-season will advance to the A-10 Championship in Charlotte.
Here's a weekend preview written by Nick Canelas of the Daily Collegian.
