UMASS basketball has cracked the top 20 teams for the first time since 1998! The most recent AP poll has them at no. 19; up from 23 last week! The team has ranked on the poll for the last seven weeks and their momentum is growing.
Students are on their (long) Winter break but that is not stopping the media excitement and crowds from packing the Mullins Center on the Amherst campus. They will play St. Joseph’s tomorrow and St. Bonaveture on Saturday before hitting the road for five of their last six games.
As Chowdaheadz, we are rooting for UMASS; not only because some of us went there but also because this is our state and it’s always wicked awesome when Massachusetts dominates! Go Minutemen!
