MBB Recaps From Friday's 95-87 Win Over Siena

On Friday night the UMass men's basketball team opened the 106th season in school history with an exciting 95-87 victory over Siena at the Mullins Center.

The 'Big Four' as coach Kellogg referred to the veteran group of Trey Davis, Maxie Esho, Derrick Gordon and Cady Lalanne all scored in double figures to lead the Minutemen. Davis took over the role of the team's starting point guard after the departure of Chaz Williams and had a career-high of 28 points. Cady Lalanne blocked a career-high six shots despite only playing five minutes in the first half due to foul trouble.




Dan Malone of MassLive.com has another player preview, this time on junior guard Trey Davis.


Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports published his list of 20 players he feels are 'under the radar' guys who will have breakout seasons this year. With the amount of Atlantic 10 games he sees in person, there are a fair amount of players from other league schools on his list (Mo Allie-Cox of VCU, Shawn'Dre Jones of Richmond and Scoochie Smith of Dayton), along with a trio of players who UMass will see in non-conference play this season (Zack Auguste of Notre Dame, Jarquez Smith of Florida State and Rich Williams of Manhattan).

Here's what he had to say about Trey:
Trey Davis, UMass: Derek Kellogg is going to need everyone on his perimeter to do more this season following the departure of Chaz Williams. Now a junior, the 6-foot Davis showed moments of promise last season as a sophomore and scored in double figures in four consecutive games from Feb. 21-March 5. If UMass is to have a chance to return to the NCAA Tournament for the second consecutive season, it needs 12-14 points a night from Davis.

Trey Davis spoke with Dan Malone about how offseason ankle surgery has helped the junior guard get over lingering pain that had persisted for close to four seasons after injuring it on his recruiting visit to George Washington during his senior year of high school.


The website CollegeSportsMadness.com has announced it's preseason Atlantic 10 All-Conference teams. Cady Lalanne and Trey Davis were both honored from UMass, with Lalanne on the first team and Davis on the fourth team. The teams appear to be done with position played as a criteria, as opposed to doing a first team of the best five players and so on. Additionally, all 14 teams have at least one player chosen among the 20 selections.

Here's the CSM intro to their teams...
College Sports Madness is announcing the 2014 - 2015 Preseason All-Conference Men's Basketball Teams. The staff at College Sports Madness has picked the top men's basketball players from each conference. These players are expected to make significant contributions to their teams during this coming season and deserve significant recognition.

Trey Davis filling multiple roles for No. 21 UMass

Matt Vautour of the Daily Hampshire Gazette spent some time with Trey Davis on Thursday and talked about his importance to the win over Eastern Michigan on Tuesday night.

Here's an excerpt from the article:
     The shot and the subsequent free throw both went in, giving Davis a rare four-point play that stretched UMass' lead from seven to 11 points with just under two minutes left, essentially icing their 69-57 win Tuesday.
     "That was a good shot," Davis said after Thursday's practice. "I felt good when I hit that. When I fell, I felt Coach hit me on the head so I knew it went in."
     UMass coach Derek Kellogg has had plenty of reasons to praise his sophomore point guard this season. Davis' play Tuesday was especially critical.
     "In the second half he was really good for us. In the first half, he forced some plays, but I thought he gave us a nice boost off the bench and made some nice plays on the offensive end," Kellogg said. "He played better defense than he's been playing. He made defensive plays that led to transition on offense."
     The four-point play took the air out of an Eastern Michigan crowd still hoping to see the Eagles upset the 21st-ranked team.

Matt Vautour (@GazetteUMass) of the Daily Hampshire Gazette has a feature piece on sophomore guard Trey Davis. Here's an excerpt from the story and you can read the entire piece by clicking on the link below.

     AMHERST -- After starting last year playing behind a guy who wasn't coming off the floor much, Trey Davis finished the year proving he could be more than just Chaz Williams' backup.
     As he gets set to begin his sophomore year at the University of Massachusetts, Davis is more comfortable, confident and ready to contribute more. He'll get the chance. In addition to being the Minutemen's No. 2 point guard, Davis figures to spell Derrick Gordon at shooting guard and play alongside him in three-guard sets.
     "Our best lineup might have Chaz, D.G. and Trey on the floor together," UMass coach Derek Kellogg said. "The more Trey keeps improving and elevating his play in terms of taking care of the ball and making the right decisions, I think he'll be playing more and more. He'll back up Chaz at point. Whether he comes off the bench or starts at that two spot remains to be seen. I'm comfortable either way."
