At UMass

  • Noah's father first announced that Noah would be transferring to UMass, on 3/18/20.2) Noah himself said it the next day.3)
  • Coach McCall quote on Fernandes: “Noah was one of my favorite players that I watched two summers ago in AAU. I think Noah is a winner, he has tremendous feel at the point guard spot and plays the game with a tremendous amount of passion. His competitiveness, basketball feel and moxie are things you want. I think he’s a better scorer than people give him credit for. He shoots it from the perimeter, but you can also put him in a pick-n-roll and he can make the right play. How we want to play offensively, when you can get multiple handlers out there with shooting on the floor, it’s going to make you that much harder to guard.”4)
