Dan Malone from the Daily Collegian has a story on the emergence and importance of sophomore Matt Keys and Josh Schwartz.

While it may not be obvious to the majority of fans, it should really come as no surprise that Matt Keys and Josh Schwartz have played with such successful coherence for the Massachusetts men's soccer team this season.

To the outside observer, there might not be a more mismatched pair of players on the team. Keys, at 6-foot-4 inches tall, is a physically-imposing presence, while the 5-foot-6-inch Schwartz, is anything but. UMass assistant coach Devin O'Neill knows there's more to this talented sophomore duo than meets the eye, however.
