West Virginia Transfer Jabarie Hinds a Huge Pickup For UMass Minutemen

Jim Cowsert-USA Today Sports

After two lackluster seasons at West Virginia, 5-foot-11 point guard Jabarie Hinds needed a change of scenery. The native of Mount Vernon, New York was looking elsewhere after making his decision to transfer public and earlier in the week was reportedly down to either UMass or St. Joseph’s.

Well, according to SNY.tv‘s Adam Zagoria, the Minutemen have emerged as the winners in the race for Hinds’ services:

Hinds averaged 7.4 points per game in each of his first two seasons at West Virginia and will still have two years of eligibly remaining at UMass. The biggest key to Hinds’ commitment however, will be his down the line production. Per NCAA rules on transfers, Hinds will be forced to sit out the 2013-14 season provided he cannot get any sort of waiver to play immediately. Starting point and all-conference performer Chaz Williams is preparing for his senior season at UMass in 2013-14, so Hinds fits the bill to perfection in terms of replacing him the following season. In addition, the UMass back court also features Western Kentucky transfer Derrick Gordon, who is eligible next season after sitting out this past year.

Head coach Derek Kellogg is building a consistent threat in Amherst, due in large part to the addition of some recent transfers. In fact, Williams himself was a former transfer by way of Hofstra. Now he has the potential to be amongst the early favorites for A-10 Player of the Year next season.

Massachusetts vs. George Mason Free Live Streaming Online: Click Here to Watch

Massachusetts may be a mid-major, but there is nothing mid-major about its game. Our friends over at SilverChalice.com will be providing the matchup between the Minutemen and the George Mason Patriots for free. Live streaming for this contest will start at 7 p.m. ET.

The Minutemen are the favorites to win the Atlantic 10 title this year. They are ranked as high as No. 15 and have a very impressive record of 14-1. Massachusetts’ only loss of the season came against the Florida State Seminoles by five points.

Chaz Williams and co. will also be the favorites coming into this game. However, they will be playing George Mason on the road.

The Patriots are 7-9 and are still looking for their first victory in conference play. Beating Massachusetts would not only give this team their first win in the A 10, it would also give them their biggest win of the season.

Regardless, the Atlantic 10 is one of the most competitive conferences in college basketball and you can watch the live streaming of this contest for free.

Once again, thanks to our friends over at SilverChalice.com for the live streaming of this game. Enjoy!
