Rothstein: Monday Morning Notebook

Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) of CBS Sports mentioned the Minutemen a couple of times in his Monday Morning Notebook. He praised the play of Dayton and the Flyers' performance in the Maui Invitational, saying UD "belongs in the conversation with VCU, Saint Louis and UMass atop the Atlantic 10 standings."

He also said the following about UMass...
     UMass coach Derek Kellogg told me that he's very happy with the Minutemen's 6-0 start, but feels that in order for them to legitimately have a chance to win the Atlantic 10 they need to find a quality eighth or ninth man in their rotation.
     "That could be the difference between being a good team and a great team," Kellogg said in reference to expanding his team's depth. "We need someone else to add something to our top seven."
     The two top candidates for UMass to fill those roles are rugged sophomore forward Tyler Bergantino and 6-foot-5 freshman guard Demetrius Dyson. UMass is at Eastern Michigan on Tuesday and hosts BYU on Saturday on CBS Sports Network (1:30 PM ET).
