Tafara Gapare dunk vs Albany

Tafara Gapare slams home a dunk for UMass as part of a 15 point, five steal night in a UMass win over Albany. 

It's been as good a start to the Frank Martin era as one could hope for. Outside of a rough loss to Towson behind Nicolas Timberlake’s sensational shooting night, the Minutemen are undefeated at 7-1 and have their best start to the season since they began the 2016-17 campaign at 6-2.
