The 2022-23 UMass Minutemen men's basketball team will represent the University of Massachusetts.
The season will represent the 114th season of basketball in the school's history.
Tracking what we know so far…
With 15 members for the first time in league history, the A-10 will keep an 18-game schedule, but will tweak the format. In recent years, a school would have home-and-homes against five other conference members. In 2022-23, the home-and-homes are reduced to four.19)
The exact dates for these games will be released later in the off-season.
Tracking what we know so far. With the coaching change from Matt McCall to Frank Martin, and instant transfer possibilities with the transfer portal, there are no guarantees that Minutemen from 2021-22 will be here in 2022-23. We will update this page as details emerge.
