Michael Counos and David Martin  preview tonight's women's basketball game against CCSU. UMass is coming off a season opening, 55-49, victory over Boston University last Sunday.


"The Massachusetts women's basketball team will look to win its second straight game at home when it takes on Central Connecticut State on Wednesday night at the Mullins Center," writes Counos.

"More impressive, however, is how well the two maintained their team's sense of confidence and determination to win, as the Terriers came back from several double-digit deficits to pull within striking distance late in the second half," writes Martin.


Tonight's game is set to tip off at 7 p.m. at the Mullins Center.

Also, check out the postgame press conference from Sunday:

It's not an automatic, but in rare cases the NCAA will grant a sixth year of eligibility to a student-athlete, and that was the desired decision this week for University of Massachusetts women's basketball guard Megan Zullo.

Zullo, who averaged 10.5 points and 4.5 assists last season while setting a team record with 1,136 minutes played, will return to the Minutewomen for the 2011-12 campaign.

Normally a student's athletic eligibility is four seasons, but sometimes the student is offered the opportunity to redshirt for a year to spread that eligibility over five years. But the NCAA may also grant a sixth year of eligibility, only if a player has missed two seasons because of an injury or circumstances beyond a player's control.
