A Look at UMB:
X's & O's
UMass-Boston is off to one of their best starts in recent history. They use their quickness and athleticism to run a simple motion offense, reversing the ball well and constantly moving. Carl Joseph and Gregory Young do most of the heavy lifting in scoring, and will look to create offense on their own. MIT will need to be able to guard these players one-on-one, and be able to rotate efficiently.

On the defensive end, UMB runs half-court man, with their point guard applying full-court pressure. UMB is another team that will look to pressure the O, force turnovers, and make the offense pay for mistakes.
