2017-2018 UMBC Retrievers

Time to start the new thread.

So we know that this season, UMBC will be playing at Arizona as part of the on-campus portion of the Battle 4 Atlantis Tournament, and that one of the other low-major schools is Presbyterian. An unverified comment on a Villanova message board said that their on-campus game will be Nicholls St. If true, this is interesting for three reasons, 1) we know who the third team is, but still can't find the fourth, b) since the small schools have to play two big schools, UMBC still has to play another team; I had assumed that second one would be Villanova since Philadelphia is a short bus ride after flying to Arizona, and c) if Nicholls St. is traveling all the way to Philadelphia and UMBC is traveling all the way to Tucson, this tournament really likes to open its checkbook.

Daquon Ervin has transferred to Mercy College in New York. That finalizes the roster.

I'm pretty sure Park is a redshirt-freshman now.

That's a hell of a seniors list, and if Malcolm Brent can find what made him good in his freshman year...

UMBC opens up the season against SMU on Nov. 10th.

Two tough games in 3 days to start the year.

Re: 2017-2018 UMBC Retrievers

It does and it'll be hard to tell anything from them. I'm curious about the rest of our OOC schedule and see who we're playing against. We have five seniors this season so I'm wondering if the team is looking at another low SOS to potentially get back to 20-wins this year.

I'm very concerned about replacing Darley with freshmen and how that's going to impact our overall performance.

Ugh, that's crazy travel! Baltimore to Dallas to Tucson and back in four days? We better be getting a huge payday for this. It would make more sense if we were paired up with Villanova as the second game, because these kids still have class. Looks like I can now book my flight to Tucson.

After doing research, it looks like Nicholls St. is the third team, and according to one Indiana newspaper, Battle 4 Atlantis participant Purdue is playing SIUE and Chicago St. the first weekend, but it doesn't say which game is the B4A on-campus game, so it's one of those two.

I've got UMBC 3rd this year. There is a lot of experienced talent coming back. I could see you guys getting hot in the tournament and making a deep run.

David Park, Max Portmann, and Brandon Horvath need to be good very early for that to happen. Will Darley was very underrated last season. He was what put us over the hump from a little better to competitive again.
