Friends of Men’s Basketball

The Friends of Men’s Basketball is a group dedicated to providing fundraising and volunteer opportunities to engage former student-athletes, parents, alumni, and fans to benefit the Boston University Men’s Basketball program.

My experience at Boston University over fifty years ago was wonderful! I give back whenever I can as my way of saying thank you for my experience at BU. I hope my contributions to the Friends of Men’s Basketball help the program reach great heights.
