Pep Rally Held Ahead of MAAC Tournament Coming to Springfield
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — The MAAC is coming back to Springfield for one more year.
The Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference men’s and women’s basketball tournaments begins March 6 at the MassMutual Center.
Springfield and the MAAC kicked off the celebration Wednesday with a rally in Tower Square.
MassMutual Center General Manager Matt Hollander says the city and its restaurants are ready.
“We’ve had great support from the restaurants and we know that they’ve done very well with business through their doors during the week of the MAAC tournament, so we’re excited about that. And this year, the conference hosts 11 institutions where previously it was 10, so we expect to see more fans coming in and more teams coming in,” Hollander explains.
