We held many UMass pre and post-game gatherings at The Fours, especially in the 90's, with both the downstairs and upstairs packed.

My favorites were a small number of sessions called "Breakfast with Bruiser." Peter would have a crew in to serve us a full breakfast upstairs at a very early hour to a good-sized group. One morning mid-meal Bru received a call saying that Monty was headed to Cooley Dickenson with what appeared to be a broken finger. I believe that was the first time that UMassHoops.com had a "scoop."
"Jack didn’t have any envy in him," Calipari said. "He was the greatest coach to ever coach here."
