Go U. GO UMass. GO U-MASS!

Down 22 points, on the road, against Syracuse, UMass came back to WIN their quarterfinal NIT game and punch their ticket to the NIT Final Four at MSG! I know it's the NIT....but give Travis Ford's club a TON of credit for outworking, out hustling, and just out playing the Orange down the stretch tonight!! Coach Ford is rebuilding the program wonderfully - next year could be big if this continues. I just hope he stays in Amherst.

81-77 UMass! Jim Boehiem is now 0-4! against the Minutemen all time! What a game....what a win!! Great win boys! You are making us Alums very proud!!

Now, go win the whole damn thing in NYC. By the way, I'm nearly perfect on my NIT bracket. Yes, it's the NIT but my final four is Florida, UMass, VTech, and Ohio St. 1 correct...3 to go.

And the winner of the biggest D-bag goes to Matt Perrault. Congrats on the bracket I am surprised you didn't have the Jays winning it all.

Matt NITardi you are awesome. I can't believe Dana didn't outcoach everyone to New York, as I'm sure you were.

I picked Nebraska and Creighton correctly.

It is bad enough to be bracket guy but to be NIT bracket guy is even worse. And your that guy.

"I picked Nebraska and Creighton correctly."

Those were great predictions, my dog could have predicted that, considering they were both lower seeds playing higher seeds on the road. Way to go out on a limb with those picks.
