Dear Alumni, Family and Friends,

    We are thrilled about the future of the women's basketball program at UMass. In each of the last three seasons, the women's basketball team has built upon the success of the previous one. Our 16 wins last season were the most since 2006-07 and we tied for most conference wins since 2006-07 as well. In the last three years our staff has won more games in their first three years than any coaching staff since the 1970s. The Flagship is Rising!

    Our student-athletes have also had success in the classroom and are making an impact in the Amherst community. Every senior student-athlete completing their eligibility in the last three years has graduated. In Spring 2019, the program achieved a 3.32 grade-point average, the highest in a single academic term since 2005-06.

    We are building a program you can be proud of, but need your help! Support from alumni, family and friends is invaluable to enhancing the student-athlete experience and excelling in the classroom and on the court. Funds from the Fastbreak Club will allows us to have the latest technology for recruiting and scouting, as well as for tracking our players' wellness with GPS heart rate monitors. We will be able to provide nutritional snacks before and after practice and provide opportunities for professional development to better prepare our young women for life after UMass.

    All these aspects are necessary to run a program that can compete for A-10 conference titles and NCAA tournament bids.

    We appreciate your generosity and look forward to giving back to you as well. We would love to have you as a member of the Fastbreak Club and your continued support as we take this program to the next level.

    Becoming part of something special,

    Tory Verdi
    Head Women's Basketball Coach University of Massachusetts
