Re: 2016-2017 UMBC Retrievers Thread

Well, I was totally wrong about Navy. They came out very confident and shot the lights out. They just beat Penn at home so perhaps they've turned a corner.

With that said, I watched Citadel against Presbyterian last night. The Citadel won 97-90. They push the ball with a lot of tempo and play just enough defense to be a nuisance.

If you have the chance, you should try to make it to the RAC on December 19th. It's going to be a barnstormer of a game. If not, definitely watch online. I could see this being a game won in the high 90s.

UMBC's strength of schedule is about to get a boost. Delaware State, as of this posting, is 11 seconds away from beating St. John's.

Re: 2016-2017 UMBC Retrievers Thread

UMBC showed its full potential tonight!!! 5-1 feels great and we saw a lot of mistakes corrected from the NAVY game especially with a 2-3 zone.

Thinking ahead, Virginia Tech came back and beat Michigan tonight 73-70. It may be a stretch but Virginia Tech may be ranked inside the Top 25 by the time UMBC plays them on 12/28. It has been quite sometime since we played a Top 25 team. I think 2011 against #17 Indiana.

Two days after calling for Duquense coach's head, their fans are happy for their win over Pitt earlier tonight. The same Pitt that just beat Maryland at the XFinity Center. If that doesn't help our RPI, I don't know what will.

I am fully on the UMBC train this season! I am rooting for you guys on every game that you're not playing Vermont. LET'S GO.

I hear at least one player has told the coaching staff of his intention to transfer at the end of this semester ,

I'm not surprised. There are a couple of guys that aren't going to get much PT. I hope they do well and are happier on their next team.

UMBC's game this Saturday at Richmond has been moved from 6:00 to 7:30. This was done so Richmond fans can watch their football team in the FCS playoffs.

7-1!!! Let's go!!! Here are neutral highlights from The Mount's page. Joe Sherburne was straight fire.

Also, discussion about our game on the Richmond Forum.

Lastly, The Citadel dropped 144 again in a D3 match up.

That Citadel game is going to be crazy and nerve wracking. I'm going to go even though its a Monday night. Joe, Will, and Jairus could all drop 25-30 points

ICYMI - Joe's 6-6 from 3pt range last night was a school record. 5-5 had been the previous UMBC mark for perfect shooting beyond the arc.

No, it's a little too far. I wouldn't get home until after 1am.

BTW, everyone if you haven't seen Citadel's box score against that D3 team go check it out. They took 90 shots in 40 minutes (opponent took 62). Made 19 threes. Crazy.
