Rothstein: Monday Morning Notebook

Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) of CBS Sports mentioned the Minutemen again in this week's Monday Morning Notebook.

Here was his part about UMass...
2. UMASS SHOULDN'T BE REFERRED TO AS "THIS YEAR'S LA SALLE"
And that doesn't mean that the Minutemen can't reach the Sweet 16 or beyond like the Explorers did last March. The reason why UMass shouldn't be considered this year's La Salle is because with the rate they're going, they won't be playing in the First Four -- they'll be in one of the other 64 slots in the NCAA Tournament. Derek Kellogg's team is playing as well as anyone to start the season and already has wins over LSU, New Mexico, BYU, Nebraska, Boston College and Clemson. In Saturday's win over BYU, Chaz Williams had 32 points, 15 assists, and just one turnover. If he isn't the favorite for Atlantic 10 Player of the Year, I don't know who is.
