Four more teams will begin Atlantic 10 conference play Sunday afternoon, two of which being the UMass Minutemen and the La Salle Explorers. The Minutemen and Explorers face off at Tom Gola Arena at 5:00 p.m. Eastern in a game that can be seen on NBCSN, and it’s also available of NBC Sports Live Extra.
Derek Kellogg’s Minutemen enter league play having won two of their last three games, and they’re led by the experienced guard triumvirate of Jabarie Hinds, Trey Davis and Donte Clarke. Those three combine to average nearly 53 points per game for UMass, which is averaging 80 points per game on the season.

La Salle will counter with one of the nation’s highest scorers in junior guard Jordan Price, who’s currently averaging 22.8 points per game. Fellow guards Cleon Roberts and Johnnie Shuler are also scoring in double figures, serving as supplementary scorers to the high-scoring Price.
La Salle’s lost five straight games, with their lack of depth being an issue, and UMass will look to exploit that today. This game can be watched on NBC Sports Live Extra by clicking here.
