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."
Led by Freddie Riley's hot shooting and Terrell Vinson's equally strong inside and outside game, UMass remained in contention for one of the top four spots in the Atlantic 10 with a solid 77-72 win at Xavier in the Cintas Center on Saturday.
UMass had four players score in double figures led by Brooklyn native Chaz Williams who finished with 22 points, seven assists, six rebounds and zero turnovers. The Minutemen are now 11-4 overall and 1-1 in Atlantic 10 play as they return to Amherst for a three-game homestand, beginning Thursday against Duquesne.
