Boston College is pulling the plug on its annual men's basketball game against the University of Massachusetts for the 2012-13 season, according to a report in the Daily Hampshire Gazette. BC cited its expanded 18-game ACC schedule as the reason for ending the series, which has been played every season since 1995-96, when the schools revived their rivalry amid much fanfare. The game, dubbed "The Commonwealth Classic," was played at the sold-out and recently opened FleetCenter in Boston. The Marcus Camby-led Minutemen won that game, 65-57. "We are expanding to an 18-game ACC schedule next season and playing UMass just didn’t work this year," BC athletic director Gene DiFilippo told the Gazette. "We will continue to play them some time in the future." UMass is coming off a 25-12 season in which it advanced to the NIT semifinals. BC finished the season 9-22. The Minutemen won this season's meeting, 82-46, at Chestnut Hill.
