Seth Davis: Hoop Thoughts

Sports Illustrated's Seth Davis (@SethDavisHoops) loves Chaz Williams. He all but says so in his latest Hoop Thoughts article on si.com.

Here's what he had to write about Chaz...
I have a soft spot in my heart for Chaz Williams, UMass' 5-9 senior point guard, because we see eye to eye. If you haven't seen him in action yet, do it soon. On Saturday, Williams turned in one of the great individual performances of the season when he had 32 points, 15 assists and just one turnover in the Minutemen's 105-96 win over BYU in Springfield. And here's something that doesn't show up on the stat sheet: A big reason why UMass is such a good offensive rebounding team (33rd nationally in offensive rebound percentage, per kenpom.com) is because Williams' slashing drives creates defensive rotations, which opens opportunities for his teammates on the glass.
