     At least 500 tickets were handed out free by UMass for its
first-ever Final Four appearance at the Meadowlands this year and
the list of recipients is a virtual "Who's Who of Boston politics
and media," reports David Armstrong of the BOSTON GLOBE.  Of the
2,500 tickets the school was allotted, 816 went to students, 731
to season ticket holders and the rest, many of them unpaid, were
given to MA business leaders, politicians, university
contributors and sports figures, including 146 to UMass President
William Bulger for personal distribution (BOSTON GLOBE, 5/9).
