Get The Collegian to the NCAA Tournament

For decades, The Massachusetts Daily Collegian has maintained a longstanding, proud tradition of delivering quality coverage to the University of Massachusetts (Amherst). 

Now, The Collegian sports staff hopes to continue that tradition at the NCAA Tournament by sending two beat reporters and a photographer to cover an event UMass hasn't qualified for in 15 years. But due to financial constraints, we're asking for your help. 

Throughout the season, the staff has independently funded travel to sites such as George Washington, Saint Joseph's, George Mason, Rhode Island and the TD Garden, and plans to attend Brooklyn, N.Y., for the Atlantic 10 Conference Tournament. But the NCAA Tournament poses significant travel concerns, with potential sites stretching as far as Spokane, Wash., and San Diego. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

The Collegian plans to deliver the strongest possible coverage of UMass' NCAA Tournament run to the campus and surrounding areas, and we're asking for your assistance to aid us in delivering fresh, original content. Below are links to our coverage from throughout the season.
