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.
