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.
