UMass’ Derek Kellogg gets raise, contract extension
[Image: 122906-650-366.jpg]

UMass coach Derek Kellogg, who has rebuilt the program and led the Minutemen to a 25 win last season, has been rewarded with a contract extension.

On Thursday, the school gave Kellogg a raise and a three-year contract extension through the 2016-17 season. He is now guaranteed $665,000 per season with incentives that could push the package to $800,000.

Atlantic 10 preview:
Addition of VCU, Butler makes strong league even more formidable


Yahoo! Sports is breaking down each league for the upcoming college basketball season working backward from No. 31 to No. 1. Here's a look at our No. 8 league, the Atlantic 10.

If the ACC is basketball's biggest conference realignment winner because of the additions of Syracuse, Pittsburgh and Notre Dame, then the revamped Atlantic 10 certainly isn't too far behind.

This season, the league welcomes newcomers VCU and Butler, two of the nation's glamor mid-major programs the past few years. Add those two to an already improving league that won't lose Temple to the Big East for one more season, and the result is a particularly formidable Atlantic 10 that lacks a truly elite team but appears to have at least a half dozen NCAA tournament contenders

Trying to pick a preseason Atlantic 10 favorite is a fool's errand this year because any of consensus the top six teams could make a legitimate case.

Atlantic 10 preview:
Ranking the 15 most intriguing non-league games

[Image: blogtitle-f-thedagger-gif_234208.jpg]

The Dagger's two-day Atlantic 10 preview continues with a look at the conference's 15 most intriguing non-conference matchups next season.

1. Butler vs. Indiana, Dec. 15 (Indianapolis)

Comment: Since the formation of the Crossroads Classic pitting Indiana's top four teams against one-another, this has been the matchup many have wanted to see. Can a Butler team that has toppled so many high-profile programs take down a Hoosiers squad that may enter the season No. 1 in the nation? We'll find out in two months.

2. Xavier vs. Cincinnati, Nov. 19

Comment: Even though Xavier appears headed for a rebuilding season this year, the first post-brawl matchup between the Musketeers and Bearcats will still be fascinating to watch. Expect both teams to be on their best behavior, and expect Cincinnati to avenge last year's drubbing.

3. Temple vs. Duke, Dec. 8 (East Rutherford, N.J.)

Comment: In last year's matchup, Temple upset Duke 78-73 behind 22 points from guard Khalif Wyatt and 17 from forward Rahlir Hollis-Jefferson. The Blue Devils better find some answers for those two because the Owls have both of those guys back.

4. Gonzaga at Butler, Jan. 19

Comment: ESPN College GameDay will visit Hinkle Fieldhouse for this matchup between two of the nation's premier non-BCS programs. Gonzaga is loaded this season with a pair of sharp-shooting sophomore guards in Kevin Pangos and Gary Bell and one of the nation's deepest frontcourts.

5. Saint Louis at Washington, Nov. 28

Comment: Saint Louis embarrassed Washington last season in Lorenzo Romar's return to the Arch City, building a 20-point first-half lead and never letting the Huskies come close to getting back into it. The loss of Terrence Ross and Tony Wroten suggests Washington won't contend in the Pac-12 this season, but the Huskies still have firepower and they're far better at home than on the road.

6. VCU at Battle 4 Atlantis (Nov. 22-24)

Comment: VCU is guaranteed three challenging games in the nation's best preseason tournament this season. First up for the Rams is Memphis, another up-tempo team that will try to run with Shaka Smart's team. Duke, Louisville, Missouri, Minnesota, Stanford and Northern Iowa round out the loaded field.

7. Temple vs. Syracuse, Dec. 22 (New York City)

Comment: Who plays Duke, Kansas and Syracuse out of conference in the same season? Temple, that's who. The Owls will have to overcome a partisan Syracuse crowd and shoot well against the Orange's trademark zone to have a chance at the upset.

8. UMass at Harvard, Nov. 13

Comment: Unless Boston College surprises or one of these two teams disappoints, this is a matchup to determine the state of Massachusetts' best team. Harvard may be an underdog because of the season-long suspensions of senior captains Kyle Casey and Brandyn Curry, but the Crimson have enough young talent to still pose a challenge for the Minutemen
.

9. Alabama at VCU, Dec. 15

Comment: When Anthony Grant coached at VCU from 2006 to 2009, his contract stipulated that the school that someday hired him away would have to schedule a home-and-home series against the Rams as penance. As a result, Alabama hosted VCU last November, a 72-64 Crimson Tide win, and will visit the Rams in Richmond this season.

10. Saint Joseph's at Drexel, Dec. 31

Comment: The best team in Philadelphia this season? Believe it or not, it may not be a member of the Big Five. CAA favorite Drexel will look to strengthen its case against a Saint Joseph's team that appears to be the most talented Phil Martelli has had since the days of Jameer Nelson and Delonte West.

11. Richmond at Kansas, Dec. 18

Comment: Richmond has forged a giant-killing reputation thanks to its history of NCAA tournament upsets against marquee programs. The Spiders probably have too many frontcourt questions to contend in this year's loaded A-10, but they'll still be dangerous when they take aim at a Kansas team that knocked them out of the NCAA tournament in the Sweet 16 two years ago.

12. Butler at Xavier, Nov. 13

Comment: This is not a misprint. Butler at Xavier is really a non-conference game even though both programs will be in the Atlantic 10 this year. The programs scheduled the game as part of ESPN's 24-hour marathon before Butler joined the league and decided to play anyway rather than find new opponents.

13. Butler at Maui Invitational, Nov. 19-21

Comment: Butler will be as battle-tested as anyone in the preseason thanks to a brutal non-league schedule meant to vault the Bulldogs into at-large contention in the Horizon League rather than the tougher Atlantic 10. Up first for Butler in Maui is Marquette, followed perhaps by North Carolina in the semifinals.

14. Saint Joseph's at Villanova, Dec. 11

Comment: The Holy War may be a mismatch this season, but in a new twist, it won't be because Villanova is the favorite. Although the Wildcats are the home team, they have a lot to prove after a disastrous 2011-12 season and the unexpected departures of starting guards Maalik Wayns and Dominic Cheek and forward Markus Kennedy.

15A. Dayton at Charleston Classic, Nov. 15-18

Comment: How much has Dayton improved? Could the Flyers be an Atlantic 10 sleeper? This early-season tournament should provide a barometer. A Dayton team led by point guard Kevin Dillard and a deep frontcourt could face Baylor in the semifinals if it springs a mild upset against Colorado in the opening round.

15B VCU at Old Dominion, Dec. 7

Comment: A reader correctly noted this was omitted from the list, so it's being added here. What has traditionally been one of the CAA's premier rivalry games is now a compelling non-league matchup between one team that has already left the CAA and another that is Conference USA bound in 2013.

UMass Basketball Tip-Off Luncheon Held Wednesday at Mullins Center

Wednesday, October 24, 2012
12-1:15 pm
Massachusetts Room, 3rd Floor of the Mullins Center

Women's Basketball
[Image: 8207228.jpeg]
UMass women's basketball head coach Sharon Dawley enters her third season at the helm of the Minutewomen for the 2012-13 campaign with eight returnees and seven newcomers.

2011-12 leading scorer and rebounder Jasmine Watson returns for her senior season, joined by senior guard Dee Montgomery and redshirt-junior forward Kiara Bomben as the team captains. Watson averaged 12.3 points and 7.6 rebounds per game as a junior, also leading the team with 48 blocks while hitting 49.0 percent of her field goals.

Men's Basketball
[Image: 2195046.jpeg]
The men's team went 25-11 and advanced to the semfinals of both the Atlantic 10 Championship and the National Invitation Tournament a year ago. The Minutemen finished tied for fifth in the Atlantic 10 after being picked 12th in the preseason polls. Kellogg installed an up-tempo offense to go along with a pressure defense that resulted in a the team breaking the school record for steals, while ranking in the top five nationally in possessions per game.

RE: UMass Basketball

Conventional thinking is that 2012-13 is a down year for point guards in college basketball. Conventional thinking appears to be correct -- but only to a degree. You look at the list we’ve put together here, what do you notice?

Examine it and it should come to you pretty quickly: There don’t appear to be a lot of pros on this list. And that’s the problem. While we’ve got a number of watchable, capable, talented and specialized-types at the 1 this season, how many of these players will ultimately be drafted? Ten? Maybe?

A10 is well represented with:

20. Rotnei Clark
25. Chaz Williams
37. Kwamain Mitchell
38. Kevin Dillard
42. Semaj Christon

Basketball Prospectus Preseason Rankings 1 to 345
[Image: basketball_background.gif]
Editor's note: Dan's preseason rankings will be appearing in both the soon to be released College Basketball Prospectus 2012-13, and in the issue of ESPN The Magazine that hits streets this Friday. Support Dan's indefatigable analytical efforts by purchasing several copies of both.

Earlier this month, I revealed my my new methodology for ranking Division I teams. Using 10 years of historical trends, I projected the performance of every D-I player, and then projected lineups for all 345 teams. (Sorry, Northern Kentucky and New Orleans. Get some D-I results I can use, then we'll talk.) Today I share the results, which I think are fun for a number of reasons. Most notably they sometimes depart from conventional thinking. It is also interesting to see how the model evaluates teams that may otherwise fly under the radar.

The Atlantic 10
32 St. Louis
36 Butler
37 Saint Joseph's
39 Temple
48 VCU
75 Massachusetts
96 Richmond
109 Dayton
117 Xavier
118 La Salle
121 St. Bonaventure
148 George Washington
208 Duquesne
223 Fordham
229 Charlotte
254 Rhode Island
