Against Boston, Rolland had 39 points while against Harvard, he had 42. He was doing it all and he seems to be the storm coming to Minutemen household and will be putting a show on the road. Tyson Walker was his best support with 13 PPG, 3.5 RPG,1.5 APG and 1.5 steals. Maxime Boursiquot played only against Boston U and he provided 10 points in 25 minutes. Just having Rolland in the roster puts the Huskies as the favorites on the road.

Like their opponents, UMass had impressive finishes in their last two games. Proving they can hold on the stretch, they won against Fairfield Stags. Against the River Hawks they escaped with five points. TJ Weeks had a big game against the River Hawks with 23 points. It was Kolton Mitchell that made his mark with 18 points while Weeks only had nine. In this matchup, UMass needs to be on their feet with the surging Jordan Rolland ready to invade their territory.

Limiting Rolland to just 20 points will be a challenge but if they do, there is a strong chance that they will hold their home-court advantage.
