AMHERST, Mass. – Massachusetts Athletics is pleased to announce a leadership-level commitment by Ed "Sign Man" Rubin, and his wife, Ann Marie, to support the Men's Basketball Program. The gift will contribute to current programmatic enhancements, along with leaving a legacy for perpetual funding. With the gift, Legacy Hall inside the John Francis Kennedy Basketball Champions Center will be named in their honor. Ed and Ann Marie will be recognized at the UMass versus South Florida basketball game on Saturday, December 2.

...

The Ed and Ann Marie Rubin Massachusetts Basketball Legacy Hall is housed in the John Francis Center Champions Center. Legacy Hall serves as a focal point for all the basketball history at UMass. Showcased in the space is a timeline of UMass Basketball, Hall of Famers, All-Americans, and All-Conference winners, along with successful teams and coaches.

Great to see this from two very dedicated alumni and fans. Awesome, Ed and Ann Marie!!!!

Thanks to everyone...

Without the fan support going back to Feb 1994,
I doubt it would have evolved into what it did.

Hoping to have a nice crowd @ the game Saturday and see all of you there.
