The signing of Terrell Vinson with Massachusetts in the spring of 2009 was celebrated as a significant recruiting coup for Derek Kellogg . After all, the then-first-year Minutemen basketball coach had just convinced ESPN.com's No. 46-ranked player in the 2009 class to join his rebuilding mid-major-plus program instead of several high-major teams, including Cincinnati, Georgetown and Louisville. Vinson, a 6-foot-7, 220-pound wing from St. Frances, said he couldn't have been more oblivious to the hype surrounding his arrival in Amherst.

After the Maryland basketball team had finished its upset of Massachusetts in the second round of last year's NCAA tournament, neither team was thinking much about the rematch.The Terrapins left Wichita, Kan., looking ahead to their trip to the Sweet 16 against Michigan. The Minutemen left the Kansas Coliseum looking back at their shocking defeat. But in time, both would start looking ahead to today's nationally televised showdown at the Baltimore Arena."The whole summer, the whole preseason, we've been looking forward to playing them again," Massachusetts center Marcus Camby said earlier this week in Amherst.

Greg Anderson, Massachusetts Senior, Ijamsville, defenseman In the Minutemen's 9-3 victory over Ohio State on Saturday, the 6-foot-1, 190-pound defenseman collected a team-high five ground balls and caused a turnover as the Buckeyes scored just one goal over the final three quarters. Anderson leads all defensemen with seven ground balls this season and is a key reason why opponents are averaging just seven goals per game. A three-year starter, Anderson ranked fourth on the team last season in caused turnovers with 12.

WICHITA, Kan. -- They appeared a step slow and somewhat jittery early in the first half, yet still jumped out to a 7-point lead. It figured that once the University of Massachusetts got into the flow of its offense and stepped up its intensity, the Minutemen would dispose of Southwest Texas State like a losing lottery ticket.Yet for much of yesterday's NCAA Midwest Regional first-round game, UMass was still waiting for that big run. Southwest Texas kept coming, despite several three-point baskets and turnover-yielding Minutemen presses that led to quick buckets.

Then there was the dried blood around Pierce's nose.

Harris has fulfilled some of his basketball dreams as a sophomore shooting guard through the first 19 games for the Minutemen, battling fifth-year senior Gary Forbes for the team scoring lead.

Terrell Vinson heard lots of opinions during the recruiting process but kept his own counsel. "With recruiting, everybody's got something to say," the St. Frances senior said. "You just try to keep a low profile and think about what's the best thing for yourself." Vinson decided Monday night the best thing for him would be continuing his basketball career at Massachusetts. The 6-foot-7, 205-pound forward committed to UMass coach Derek Kellogg during an in-home visit. Vinson, a Baltimore Sun All-Metro selection who averaged 23 points and eight rebounds as a senior, had committed to Loyola Marymount in the fall before reopening his recruitment after coach Bill Bayno left the school.

The 2008 season wasn't about succeeding for the Massachusetts men's lacrosse team. It was about getting through a trying time. Before the Minutemen's season began, eight players were suspended for their roles in a beating of three individuals with lacrosse sticks and bottles. The suspensions left the team with just 27 players. "We scaled everything back practice-wise and time-wise," UMass coach Greg Cannella said. "Tried not to do too much and keep the guys as fresh as possible. ... I think they all felt we were a little undermanned."

Massachusetts (20-0, 8-0) handled its toughest road test of the season with aplomb, as the Minutemen crept to a 30-12 lead at the half and befuddled the Owls' offensive scheme.

Overcome the absence of Marcus Camby; overcome nemesis George Washington.If Massachusetts is going to reach the Final Four, it will have to set a precedent. The top-ranked Minutemen (31-1) open the NCAA tournament today at the Providence Civic Center against lowly Central Florida, and if they turn their top seed in the East into a regional title, they'll become the first team from the Atlantic 10 Conference ever to get to the Final Four.
