UMass Minutemen Basketball TicketsThe University of Massachusetts men's basketball program is one of the strongest in the Atlantic 10 Conference, and it's looking to make a run in the NCAA Tournament this season. This is the school that produced such superstars as Julius "Dr. J" Erving and Marcus Camby, and you can be part of the action by attending a home game at the 10,500-seat William D. Mullins Memorial Center in Amherst, Mass., or by traveling to see the Minutemen play an away game. Superstar Coach John Calipari got his big break at UMass, but that tenure ended in a scandal that many still associate with the program. The Minutemen are ready to prove themselves on the hard court this season with big out-of-conference match-ups and within the steadily improving A-10. If you're a fan of college basketball, you'll have a hard time beating the experience of a UMass home game when teams like VCU or George Mason are visiting.

That squad finished the season with a 35-2 record, leading the nation in win percentage and going 15-1 in conference play, eventually losing to the Kentucky Wildcats in the Final Four. The Executive Committee of the NCAA, though, vacated UMass's tournament wins and losses for that season because superstar Marcus Camby was found to have accepted improper gifts from agents.
