Re: 2016-2017 UMBC Retrievers Thread

Really want to go but will be watching it on Comcast Sports Net Plus.

Also, we know that they are the highest scoring team in the nation but they are also allowing the most points in the nation. Our defense will be the most critical aspect in this game. Hopefully we can limit them to under 90 and we score more.

December 17th - The Citadel plays Virginia Tech which may give us a better idea of both teams.

Excited for the Richmond game. Definitely going to the best team we have played so far.

I agree, Citadel's defense is not good but it's because they push the ball so much. Their defense is their offense. Just outscore the other team by taking more shots and let math win the game.

I wouldn't be surprised if both teams score 100 and break all kinds of RAC records.

The only difference being we went through a scoring drought in the Richmond game which led to them just edging us out.

Rodney was a nice spark off the bench and took charge at the end to keep us close. Unfortunately, he did get called for a lot of hand check and blocking fouls which were a little ticky-tacky.

Richmond made the adjustments to Jairus Lyles in the second half as he was for the most part dominant.

Another two big tests coming up with Towson and The Citadel. I am happy that they are both at home! Unfortunately, I will be out of town for the Towson match and taking an exam from 6-9 during the Citadel game. FML

If anyone remembers the Towson game from last year, the biggest difference was Towson's presence in the paint and their ability to rebound. They out-rebounded us 38-25 (15 to 7) in terms of offensive rebounds. The team has a lot of big bodies - I see a lot of playing time and use for Arkel Lamar in this kind of game as he will have to battle John Davis and Adala Moto. 4 more games left before conference play - The Sky is the limit for this team!!!

Re: 2016-2017 UMBC Retrievers Thread

I wish Joel all the best. He had a great debut against Wake and then never really got a chance to play again. Now that a new coaching staff have come in and he's still not playing regularly means he probably wasn't going to at UMBC.

He has talent and deserves to play at whatever level works best for him. I hope he does well and is happy wherever that is.

I have a feeling that he's not the only one that's going to leave as Odom has settled into a pretty tight rotation now.

Re: 2016-2017 UMBC Retrievers Thread

My preference would to be use Joel's scholarship to get a JuCo shooter. There are going to be a lot of freshmen in two years and I think it makes sense to have another senior rather than another sophomore. Plus we will need to replace Darley's scoring next year and I think it's more realistic to get a junior JuCo than rely on a freshman unless they get someone that's a no-brainer.

Unfortunately, I figured it would be him. Came out of high school with a lot of promise and as a scoring threat but unfortunately there are too many guys ahead of him on the depth chart. I wish him the best wherever he goes.

Re: 2016-2017 UMBC Retrievers Thread

I'm not surprised he's looking for a new opportunity, and I wouldn't be surprised if there's one, maybe even two more, to come. A few of these players are too good to be out of the rotation, even with the 7-2 record they have now.

It's funny how quickly we went from 5 scholarship players available to "too good to be out of the rotation".

Coach Dixon and Nolan Gerrity in this week's edition of the Ryan Odom Show. Great podcast!

Not including tonight's game, two of UMBC's next three opponents scored a total of 184 against each other, today.
