AMHERST, Mass. - The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame announced that Massachusetts will face Brigham Young in the 2013 Holiday Showcase game at the MassMutual Center in Springfield on Saturday, Dec. 7 at 1:30 p.m.

The game will mark the sixth-consecutive season that UMass has played at least one contest at the MassMutual Center, with a five-game winning streak following last season's overtime victory against Elon in the 2012 Holiday Showcase.

UMass is 39-23 all-time in the MassMutual Center dating back to its first game in 1970. The Minutemen are 19-4 since 1990 in the facility and 5-1 since Springfield native Derek Kellogg returned to his alma mater as head coach prior to the 2008-09 campaign.

This will mark the first-ever meeting between the two schools.

Ticket info will be announced at a later date.
