Re: 2021-2022 Schedule

There's a little more clarity on how the Jersey Mike's event will go, but I don't get how it could work. Tickets have gone on sale via https://www.purplepass.com/#u55828/Van_Wagner_&_Superior_Sports_Management.html That site is saying 9 games total, 3 each on Thurs 11/18, Fri 11/19, and Sun 11/2...

Re: Statue Dedication

My set of pictures: https://www.facebook.com/media/set?vanity=UMassHoopsCom&set=a.10158109024736123 Pretty much all from the statue ceremonies. Was a little too dark in Mullins for the HOF, bad combo with my limited photog skills. The entire current men's team was there, players and coaching sta...

This conversation is duplicated over in Men's Hoop. Given that gets more visibility, keep this latest development going over there:

Re: Fire Ryan Bamford

A major donor to the Department tweeted this: https://twitter.com/5CollegeMovers/status/1436028385256411138?s=20 Oof. That's a major slap to Bamford when one of our big corporate sponsors jumps on the train. Former women's track coach Julie LaFreniere got on board also: https://twitter.com/JulieLaF...

Re: AD Ryan Bamford

You always have to wonder where the truth falls in something like ^ this, but for Komer, who has devoted decades to UMass, to reveal stuff like this publicly, that's not good for Bamford and company. Komer was Associate Athletic Director / Director of Academic Success. Taken from his bio on UMassAtl...

Re: 2021-2022 Schedule

Looks like a hoop & hockey double-header on Saturday, 12/4. Hoop vs Harvard Hockey vs UM Lowell No times listed for either, but puck is playing at Lowell on 12/3 at 7. You gotta play, sleep, get to Amherst, so I can't see them starting anytime before 7 on 12/4. That means hoop probably starts at...

UM communicated the non-conf schedule. Nothing we didn't already know from prior reports.

Re: 2021-2022 Schedule

Anyone else getting antsy for the final schedule release? If recent history is the guide, wait another week or two. Revisiting and appending a list that DirSport originally started: Season / Schedule release date 2020-21 Can't really compare as COVID delayed/disrupted everything. Nov. 11 was the rel...

Re: Calipari to Kentucky?

Dusting off this thread as it's as close a match as any, but this strays WAY off the basketball court...

Re: 2021-2022 Schedule

I got my season ticket EMail reminder and they are planning on 16 home games. Since 9 are conference games, that leaves 7 non-conference games (putting that Isenberg education to work :D ). Using Mike's preview page and some other reported items here is what I found: 11/9 - UMBC 11/14 - Penn State ...
