Dan Malone of MassLive.com has a starting lineup update as junior transfer Jabarie Hinds may not start, but that he's okay with that.
Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) has been a busy guy lately, breaking out a number of top 5, top 10, underrated and overrated lists on the CBS Sports.com Eye On College Basketball site. Today's list is the top 5 Under the Radar Transfers to Watch in 2014-15... which is headlined by UMass rising junior Jabarie Hinds. He has this to say about the top-50 recruit from Mount Vernon, N.Y. who played two seasons at West Virginia before transferring to UMass last summer.
Jabarie Hinds, UMass
A former Top 50 recruit out of high school, Hinds will be a perfect replacement for Chaz Williams in the Minutemen's high-octane attack. The 5-foot-11 point guard is made for open court basketball and that's just what Derek Kellogg implements on a daily basis. Hinds was somewhat confined during his two-year stretch at West Virginia and should give UMass a dynamic troika on the perimeter along with Derrick Gordon and Trey Davis. Hinds averaged 7.4 points in each of his two seasons in Morgantown.
