Summer Overview

Year three of the Derek Kellogg era at UMass will continue to see the youth movement. The Minutemen welcome three more newcomers to go along with the five-man class that came to UMass in 2009. UMass will look to capitalize on a nice run in the Atlantic 10 Tournament as the Minutemen won their first conference tournament game in eight years, knocking out No. 6 seed Charlotte on the road.

UMass returns four of its top five scorers, graduating Ricky Harris, the program's third all-time leading scorer. Senior Anthony Gurley, who returned to UMass after declaring for the NBA Draft, is the leading returning scorer with 13.6 points per game. He will head up a young team that gained great experience last season. The freshman quartet of Sampson Carter, Javorn Farrell and Freddie Riley and Terrell Vinson all played more than 15 minutes per game in 2009-10 and combined to start 63 games scoring nearly 30 points cumulatively.

Junior Sean Carter will be counted on in the middle once again, he was a force on the defensive end, leading UMass in rebounding (7.1 per game) and blocked shots (42). Senior Hashim Bailey showed flashes throughout the season as he averaged 15.2 rebounds and 8.1 points prorated over 40 minutes.

Senior guard Gary Correia will be looked upon to add leadership in his fourth year in the program. He is the longest tenured Minuteman, having played for the 2008 NIT Finalist team. Last season, the Providence native averaged 2.2 points and 2.2 assists.

Forwards Matt Hill and Trey Lang could be contributors off the bench in 2010-11.

The newcomers to the court in 2010-11 will be immediate impact players. Raphiael Putney, who redshirted last season, is expected to add an new element with his incredible length and shooting range. Jesse Morgan, who transferred in from Seton Hall is expected to be eligible midseason. He was a Philadelphia star in high school scoring 28 points per game. True freshman signees Daryl Traynham and Maxie Esho will be key cogs as well. The former high school teammates in Maryland will play at guard and forward, respectively.
