The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame hosts a matchup of the University of Massachusetts and Brigham Young University men's basketball teams for its 2013 Holiday Showcase to be held at the MassMutual Center on Saturday, December 7th at 1:30 pm. UMass returns seven letter winners and three starters, including All-America candidate Chaz Williams, who led the team in points, assists, steals and minutes a year ago. The Minutemen return 55 percent of their scoring and 73 percent of their rebounding from last season and have recorded at least 20 wins each of the last two campaigns, while qualifying for the NIT twice. UMass is led by sixth-year head coach Derek Kellogg who has collected 85 career victories and sits fourth on the school's career coaching list behind legends Jack Leaman, John Calipari and Bruiser Flint.
