UMass Basketball Coach Derek Kellogg Talks Rankings, Calipari

UMass men’s basketball fell in the Associated Press rankings this week to number 21, down from 13 the previous week. But if they stay in the rankings, UMass could be headed to the NCAA tournament in March. The team is coached by Derek Kellogg, who played at UMass under coach John Calipari in the mid-90’s, the last time the team had national success. At Tuesday’s practice, I spoke to Kellogg about how this team compares to the Calipari-era, and how he’s influenced by the rankings.
