The Daily Hampshire Gazette has a feature story on UMass senior bigman Hashim "Big City" Bailey. The Memphis transfer is in the best shape of his career.

Naturally, everyone has a suggestion to change his nickname: "Not-so Big City," "Smaller City," "The Town." Bailey himself even offers "Slim City."

Daily Collegian: Hoops Looks To Fill Holes

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
The Massachusetts men's basketball team has some holes to fill after losing its top scorer Ricky Harris to graduation.

"In losing Ricky, we lost 20 points a game and a guy who's been here and scored the ball his own career," UMass coach Derek Kellogg told the Daily Collegian. "It's going to be hard to replace." Stepping up for the Minutemen will likely be guard Anthony Gurley, who averaged 13.6 points a game last season including a career-high 24 points against Richmond in the Atlantic 10 Quarterfinals.

Despite having an experienced scorer waiting in the wings, Kellogg is looking to put "men" on the court.

"When I say a man, a man is a guy who never quits," Kellogg said. "He never gives in, he fights from the second he walks in the gym until the second he leaves. It's a constant effort, constant toughness."
