Men's Basketball Excellence Fund

Hello, UMass Men’s Basketball Supporters:

As we look to the future of the Massachusetts men’s basketball program, now is the time for us to unite our alumni, friends and family in support of head coach Matt McCall and our student-athletes. We have a state-of-the-art basketball facility in the John Francis Kennedy Champions Center that positions us in the upper echelon of the Atlantic 10 Conference and among national competition.

Further contributions are vital to enhance academic support, recruiting, travel, equipment and the essential tools for the day-to-day experiences of our coaches and student-athletes. Investing in our program by way of the newly-created Excellence Fund will provide the resources necessary to further strengthen the experience of our men’s basketball student-athletes in their continued pursuit of academic and athletic achievement.

Our goal is to raise a minimum of $150,000 in support of Coach McCall and the men’s basketball program by June 1, 2017.

Some areas where your investment can make an immediate impact:

  • Completing the branding in the John Francis Kennedy Champions Center
  • Team travel accommodations
  • Updated computer software to assist with film study and recruiting

With Coach McCall at the helm, we are asking for your support as we look to recruit the most talented student-athletes, equip them with the resources necessary to achieve academic excellence, grow them athletically to succeed in the highly-competitive A-10 and compete annually for postseason play.  If you are a current donor to the program, please consider making an additional gift today.  We also welcome those new supporters who are willing to join the effort and make a difference.

Go UMass!
