    The Worcester Telegram & Gazette has a season preview of the UMass basketball team. Anthony Gurley knows what the UMass men's basketball team has ahead of it this season.

    "It's not going to be an easy season," the redshirt senior said. "We know what we have to work on. We've definitely got to continue to get better on the defensive end, rebounding the basketball, and just fine-tuning everything. "We've just got to keep our confidence and make sure we play as hard as we can every single time we step on the floor."
