UMass Lowell to Join America East

Category: America East Expansion & Realignment, Featured News, NCAA Conference Expansion & Realignment, NCAA Division Upgrades

Umass-LowellReports claim that UMass Lowell intends to upgrade to Division 1 from Division 2 and join the America East.

The move would give the America East (9) members for the 2013-2014 season, and help after the loss of Boston University. The America East has had it’s eyes on Northeast Conference members for expansion, but at this time, it appears that Umass Lowell is a cleaner fit. The expected addition of UMass Lowell would be yet another blow for N.J.I.T. which has hoped for an America East or Northeast Conference invitation over the past few years, only to be passed over.

  • I would have thought New Haven U. could fit somewhere coming up from D2. Even C.W. Post. Those 2 could be ahead of New Jersey Tech since their programs are better than NJT.

    FYI, the school name does not have a hyphen. It’s just UMass Lowell.

    NJIT should consider joining the WAC for a couple of years since no one else seems to want them. The WAC will take anyone at this point to keep the automatic bid for the conference as long as they can. I don’t believe they will have any problem the next couple of the years with the addition of UMKC. NJIT is the last member of the Great West that does not have a basketball conference for next year. Cal-State Bakersfield and New Orleans also have conferences for next year as well. I don’t think they want to be known as the last independent in the history of college basketball.
