Just a reminder for fans attending today's UMass Sports Luncheon that it will start at a special time of 10:30 AM in the Massachusetts Room of the Mullins Center. The early start is to allow fans attending the chance to see the women's basketball game against La Salle which will tip-off at 11:45 AM as the annual Field Trip Day game for local elementary school children. Fans going to the Sports Luncheon will receive a free ticket to the game and can park in the back lot of the Mullins Center!
