The Minutewomen take to the road to face both Fordham and Richmond this week.

http://dailycollegian.com/2015/01/21/minutewomen-hit-the-road-for-pair-of-conference-games/

The Massachusetts women’s basketball team is undoubtedly on the upswing in terms of overall program success. The Minutewomen (8-9, 2-3 Atlantic 10) have already doubled their win total from a season ago and continue to improve on both ends of the floor.

As the Massachusetts men’s basketball team prepares for its trip to Philadelphia to take on Saint Joseph’s Wednesday night, it won’t have to look much further than the opposite bench to realize the similarities they share.

Cady Lalanne shows signs of elevating his game : The Massachusetts Daily Collegian

UMass center Cady Lalanne is starting to show signs of elevating his game, which the team will need as it prepares for its stretch run.

http://dailycollegian.com/2015/01/16/cady-lalanne-shows-signs-of-elevating-his-game/

Both the Minutemen and Lalanne have endured an up and down season and much of it hinges on Lalanne’s play. When playing well, the 6-foot-10, 250-pound center is a difficult match up for many teams in the Atlantic 10 Conference. But the challenge lies within finding consistency.

UMass is 3-3 since returning from winter break following its 6-4 victory over New Hampshire Friday night. The Minutemen are allowing a respectable three goals a game in that stretch, but more importantly, aren’t wilting or shying away from conflict when other team’s strike offensively.

UMass races past New Hampshire in high-scoring final period : The Massachusetts Daily Collegian

UMass hockey raced past New Hampshire behind two goals from Shane Walsh yesterday at the Mullins Center.

http://dailycollegian.com/2015/01/16/umass-races-past-new-hampshire-in-high-scoring-final-period/

The hat, which is awarded to the Massachusetts hockey team’s player of the game, is only handed out when the Minutemen are victorious. After Walsh’s performance Friday night against New Hampshire, the “Minutemen” hat may want to get comfortable in his locker.

http://dailycollegian.com/2015/01/14/umass-basketball-falters-late-in-71-63-loss-to-davidson/

And unfortunately for the Massachusetts men’s basketball team, it was a missed opportunity — a loose ball rebound that it failed to grab — that prevented the Minutemen from lighting the kindling branches and sticks in their 71-63 loss to Davidson on Wednesday night.

The Minutemen spent the final three minutes of Sunday’s game against George Mason averting disaster. There was a barrage of Patriots offensive rebounds, two near-fatal UMass turnovers and a potential third turnover that was barely avoided.

Minutewomen kick off 2014 with modest start : The Daily Collegian

UMass women's soccer opened up its season this weekend, earning one point through two games in the James Madison Invitational http://dailycollegian.com/2014/08/25/minutewomen-kick-off-2014-with-modest-start/

The Dukes (2-0-0) controlled possession in the early goings of the match, but the Minutewomen defense held strong. Goalkeeper Danielle Kriscenski, a redshirt sophomore who played every minute for UMass (0-1-1) last season, made some key plays early – and five saves on the day – and the defense creat…

The Massachusetts football team’s defense found itself in many positions last season, but rarely did it ever find itself in a position to sack the opposing quarterback.

When Massachusetts football coach Mark Whipple placed a timeline on naming a starting quarterback, he indicated he’d like to have a decision within the first seven-to-10 days of practice.

He’s the beholder of 6,250 career rushing yards spread out over four years in a Minutemen jersey. He’s the UMass record-holder in yards, carries (1,215), rushing touchdowns (58), and ran for a school-record 2,542 yards in his sophomore season en route to a Division 1-AA National Championship in 1998…

Minutemen anxious to display aggressive defense : The Daily Collegian

The one word that keeps coming up when referencing the UMass defense? Aggressiveness. http://dailycollegian.com/2014/08/05/minutemen-anxious-to-display-aggressive-defense/

The Minutemen want to be known as an aggressive bunch. They also want it known that they intend to play every snap at 100 miles per hour, that an exotic blitz package could come from any angle and any part of the field and that they’ll carry themselves with an attitude.
