Re: It's not video -- but it's something

I've been anxious to find and post this particular audio, and Old Cage has come through in grandest style to save my bacon. Much respect and thanks to you, sir. https://soundcloud.com/user-125347718/umass-west-virginia-1-27-1995 Here are the last five-plus minutes of regulation and the overtime peri...

Re: It's not video -- but it's something

Up to the moment, 16 tracks in all are up. The latest are all three games vs. Temple in 93-94, including a pair of one-pointers decided late by Mike Williams, and the A-10 tournament final that featured an early 24-3 lead. One goal of the project is to put up all A-10 tournament and NCAA tournament ...

Re: Trivia for the off season

Combo effort. UMass is 6-4 all-time vs. Temple, 5-5 vs. Duquesne and 4-6 vs. GW.

I would guess Duquesne, GW, and St Joes.
Two of those are correct.

Re: Trivia for the off season

Try on this one: Which three teams has UMass faced more than any others (10 times each) in Atlantic 10 postseason tournament play?

Re: It's not video -- but it's something

Last-second magic -- Tony Barbee at the buzzer to beat Temple for the second time ever (1-21-1993), then Mike Williams with 1.2 ticks left for the win at Oklahoma (11-28-1993). Think about that North Carolina-Kansas-Oklahoma stretch in less than five days.

Re: It's not video -- but it's something

Goings and comings -- Both the last game played at the Cage, against SW Louisiana, and the first-ever game at Mullins, an OT win over West Virginia five days later, are now up. Who else can remember that UMass played a road game at St. Bonaventure less than 40 hours after the last "Rage in the Cage"...

Re: It's not video -- but it's something

UMass-North Carolina, 1993 Preseason NIT, is now added. Fair warning, it's a tough listen due to technical difficulties that night at MSG.

It's not video -- but it's something

Many of you know that it was my good fortune to broadcast four seasons' worth of UMass basketball on WHMP in Northampton between 1991-92 and 1994-95. Those times were otherworldly good; in 135 games over that span, the Minutemen finished 111-24. I still have all of those 135 games on tape -- not eve...

Re: Videos of old games

That was a crazy week between the Arkansas and Kansas games -- specifically, the time between when the AP poll came out with UMass at #1 and our flight to California the following Thursday. I must have done a dozen interviews with other regional and national sports outlets, all looking to get the lo...

Re: Videos of old games

^if I remember correctly, I believe Mike Williams got fouled shooting a three with under 10 seconds left in regulation, down by four. He hit the first two, missed the third, and we got an o-rebound and putback to tie the game. Could be thinking of a different game though. I do remember the post-gam...

Re: 2019-20 season

I can't let this date slide by without a mention. Jack Leaman would have turned 87 today. Looking back to his years on the radio, UMass played three times on his birthday -- once in Puerto Rico (1999) and once in Wilmington, NC (1996), and I'm not sure if he made those trips. But the one game I know...

Re: Hank Tomkowicz passes away

If I remember right, Hank could also belt out a fine national anthem. I would see him at the Cage most years in March, following Hoosac Valley basketball in the Western Mass. tournament. My condolences.
