  • UMass leads 39-19 (.672)
  • Last meeting: 12/7/2021, Northeastern 82 - UMass 76
  • First meeting: 2/18/1922, Massachusetts 30 - Northeastern 12


  • Teams played every season from 1947-48 through 1989-90, with only two gaps (1966-67 and 1983-84).
  • Jack Leaman’s teams won 11 of the 12 games during his coaching tenure at Massachusetts.
  • Jack Leaman won all 7 meetings against Northeastern when coached by Jim Calhoun.
  • After Leaman's departure, Calhoun won 5 of 6 against Massachusetts, before he left for Connecticut.
  • Frank Martin served as an Assistant Coach at Northeastern from 2000-04. He recruited future NBA player J. J. Barea to the Huskies.1)2)
  • Northeastern's 2020-21 media guide shows one extra game, on 2/18/1948. UMass data shows us playing Williams College on that date, and The Collegian's archive also reports a Williams game on that date, not Northeastern. We believe the Northeastern data to be erroneous.
