Kentucky will pay $50K to get out of UMass game
wants out of its game with
Massachusetts in November and the school is
willing to pay $50,000 to do it, but the Minutemen aren’t happy.
athletic director Mitch Barnhart told UMass he will cut the check to get out of
a return series game scheduled for the TD Banknorth Garden in
Boston on Nov. 24, but an estimated 7,000
tickets have already been sold for the contest. The arena and the Minutemen
would have to refund those purchases, and overall, stand to lose an estimated
$300,000 that the game would have generated.
