UMass basketball does parody of "The Office"

The beginning of basketball season is almost here, and UMass is once again parodying a famous television show.

Last year, it was "Full House." This year, it's "The Office."

Chronicling the first day of practice, the Minutemen employed the mockumentary filming technique that made the NBC show a hit for 10 seasons in the aptly-titled web series, "The Court." From inter-squad jokes to behind-the-scenes action inside the UMass practice facility to a rendition of the opening music from the real show, "The Court," provided a fun start to what should be an interesting basketball season.
