Conference Tournaments

With the 1976-77 season, Massachusetts began playing in conference tournaments as the University joined the ECBL, which evolved into the Atlantic 10.


  • UMass won 5-straight tournaments (1992-96), a feat unmatched by any other Atlantic 10 school.1)
  • Harper Williams was the first player in A-10 history to win consecutive Most Outstanding Player honors (1992 & 1993). The feat was matched by Temple's Dionte Christmas in 2008 & 2009.
  • Lou Roe has been the only Minuteman to be named to four consecutive All Tournament Teams.
  • UMass holds the record for largest margin of victory in an A-10 Tournament game, the 34-point win over Saint Joseph's in 2021.2)
  • UMass flirted with the A-10 Tournament record for lowest points in a game, with their 38 vs Richmond in 2023, but beat George Washington's low-water mark of 34 in 1994 (#12 Temple 54, GW 34, 3/7/1994).3)4)
