UMass Basketball: The 10 Best Players of the Derek Kellogg Era

Derek Kellogg was named head coach of the University of Massachusetts men's basketball program on April 23, 2008, taking over for the departed Travis Ford, who left to become the head man at Oklahoma State.

Kellogg's teams struggled in his first two seasons at the helm, compiling a record of 24-38, before improving to 15-15 in 2010-11.

Recently, Kellogg has found more success at the school that he once helped reach the Elite Eight as a player. In the last two years, his squads have earned back-to-back NIT berths with 20+ win seasons.

Heading into 2013-14, many college basketball pundits are picking UMass to end its 15 year NCAA tournament drought and return to the Big Dance in the upcoming season.

This year's Minutemen will again be led by the one and only Chaz Williams, who has almost single-handedly changed the fortune of the UMass basketball program.

Williams is without a doubt one of the best players Kellogg has coached in his five year tenure, but there have been many other talented players to don the UMass uniform since Kellogg took over.

Here are the ten best players to suit up for Kellogg since he became head coach in '08.

Note: Players were only judged based on how they performed while playing for Kellogg, regardless of their play under Ford.
