UMass gets No. 6 seed in NCAA Tournament

AMHERST — A technical glitch let the UMass Minutemen celebrate twice on Sunday for the CBS cameras. But hey, when you’ve waited 16 long years to let loose, what’s wrong with that?

The Minutemen are dancing once again, finally back in the NCAA Tournament. UMass was given the No. 6 seed in the Midwest Regional and will play on Friday in Raleigh, N.C. The opponent will be determined in Dayton, Ohio, on Wednesday; a pair of No. 11 seeds, Tennessee and Iowa, will play for the right to face the Minutemen.
