Conference schedule is out, it would be nice if we could get a non-conference schedule, too.

Ryan Odom, UMBC's head men's basketball coach, announced today that four new players have joined the Retrievers' men's basketball program.* Max Curran (Hooksett, N.H./Notre Dame Academy), Arkel Lamar (Bridgeport, Conn/St. Thomas More), K.J. Maura (San Juan, Puerto Rico/College of Central Florida), and David Park (Wheeling, W.Va./Air Force Prep) have enrolled at UMBC and began classes with the remainder of the student body.
Arkel Lamar is new to me ... Don't know if anyone else had seen anything about it. Verbal Commits had him as Arkel Ager-Lamar so perhaps that's why he didn't come up as a recruit.

Here's his VC page: http://www.verbalcommits.com/players/arkel-ager-lamar

He's had offers and interest all over Division I from the Big East to the MAAC.

They would have to be ... I wonder if someone got an academic scholarship and walked on ... But I'm glad to see everyone from last year is back to give Coach Odom a shot at turning things around.

Looks to me like Loyola and possibly another Baltimore team (Morgan?) may be TV games, with MASN wanting to announce it first.

What a shi*ty schedule. I can't believe they are playing 2 division 3 schools. They should be embarrassed

I agree, but sadly, you're seeing this more and more, even in high-majors. What I'm most surprised about is no Loyola, in this and in soccer, two marquee sports for both. Makes me think something is going on between the two schools.

Why make an account just to be negative?

If you even just replaced Messiah with a school like Coppin State this would be seen as a "nice" schedule. If we play 2 D3 schools this year, who cares. It happens sometimes.

Gee I'm sorry I didn't know the rules were you can have an opinion as long as it's positive. How's this... I'm positive there is no good that can come from playing d3 opponents, you are expected to win and if you don't or they play you close its an embarrassment
I would rather get pounded by a quality opponent on the road than play the little sisters of the poor at home. The object of a non conference game is to prepare yourself for conference season. But that's just me

Trust me, we all know this and have groused about it in many previous posts. It's a pre-existing sore spot. Anyway, welcome to the forum -- great name!
