XU goes to UMass as an underdog tonight

After that big win against Dayton, the tough games continue.  The Muskies play at UMass at 7pm tonight.  UMass was undefeated at home this season until last week.  They lost to LaSalle by 1 point after the referees changed their decision on what was a game-tying UMass buzzer-beater from a 3 point shot to a 2.

The Minutemen's great home record and Muskies recent road struggles equate to the Muskies being a 1 point underdog tonight.  UMass has a scary team.  They lead the A10 in scoring (76.3 pts/game) and rebounding (39.9 rebs/game).  Chaz Williams, their PG who transferred in from Hofstra, is the floor general of their high-scoring offense.  He's scoring 15.5 pts/game and leads the conference with 6.2 assists per game. The Minutemen are averaging an incredible 80 points in home games.

It will take a great effort on the defensive end to slow down the UMass offense.  A balanced Muskies scoring attack has been rare of late but may be the key to beating the Minutemen.  In their last 2 games (both losses), they've allowed 4 different opponents to score double figures in each game.

Go Muskies!
