UMass '96



Hardwood History

UMass Legacy Collection

The '95-96 UMass Minutemen clued the nation in on their secret at the beginning of the season when they defeated #1 Kentucky 92-82 to start a run of 26 consecutive wins.  The secret?  John Calipari's squad was really, really good.  So was Marcus Camby.  The junior center poured in 32 points, grabbed 9 rebounds and blocked 5 shots.  It would remain a theme as the season went on with Camby leading the Minutemen to a #1 ranking, a #1 seed in the East Region of the NCAA Tournament.

Once there the Minutemen survived a scare from Stanford to reach the Sweet 16 where they destroyed 12-seed Arkansas to set up an Elite 8 showdown with Allen Iverson and the 2-seed Georgetown Hoyas.  As it turns out it was only a showdown on paper as UMass cruised to a 14 point win and a trip to the schools first Final Four.
