Saturday, May 14, 2016
“We look forward to resuming our series with UMass. We always want to challenge ourselves against top competition, and it is an added bonus that we can do so against an in-state rival. This year’s game will provide an excellent opportunity for our fans to see us play in downtown Worcester, and we anticipate there being a great atmosphere in the building," said Holy Cross coach Bill Carmody.
This will be the 57th meeting between the two programs. Holy Cross leads the all-time series 36-20.
