Thanks to FightMass for digging out a possible answer, although I'm not sure what his criteria is for a waiver. I hope he can play this year. A little more depth in the front court can't hurt.

Appears that new #UMass forward and Cleveland State transfer Dibaji Walker may be looking for a waiver to be eligible for this season according to his mother
It could be because the coach at Cleveland state was fired so late.

Rob Bradford posted a column, or opinion piece, or ... actually, I don't really know what this would be considered. Maybe hack journalism, but I don't think there's actually any journalism. He just states that UMass is irrelevant, doesn't mention the subject of the article (the new court), or what it looks like (the state). He then posts a couple links from UMass Athletics twitter account. What a loser, but hey, thanks for the publicity!

Edit: I'll give him a little credit. At the end he links a Collegian article from Amin Touri.

Pretty sharp looking court.

The new court would have been great back in the day.... Trey Davis for 3 from downtown Worcester!

As a former player really like the court also think Coach Leaman would have liked it. He had pride in the fact that he was a Massachusetts guy. It’s also nice because if you look at the program it was built on kids from Massachusetts and then Jack, Pete Broaca and Ray Wilson recruited NY, Long Island, NJ and Ct and put those guys together and with the Massachusetts kids and got the program going. We always had guys like Joey DiSarcina, Billy Endicott, Mark Donoghue, Peter Trow, Jimmy Burke, John Murphy, Billy Greeley, Jack Dempsey, Monty Mack, Skip Connors and so many more that were tough hard nose blue collar kids from Massachusetts.
Court looks good and hopefully all the players will treat it with respect and realize it’s an honor to represent the University of Massachusetts and play on that court.

Plus watching games on tv you can't help but notice the court, which will get UMass more notice.

I love it. Fresh start this year, new court, new players, new coaches, new unis. Now lets turn the corner and get some wins

Thanks, that will make the Oct 29th game free and first pay game Nov 5, which will need to flex those tickets.

Did go to My Account and Transfer Tickets, but only see football and no Basketball tickets. After receiving tickets, will try again.

Bradfo has always been an untalented hack. Unoriginal writing and horribly boring on sports radio. Don’t put much stock in anything he says. Originally from the Eagle Tribune, along with John Tomase. Yuccckkkkkk to both of them.
