MEN'S HOOPS SEASON ENDS WITH 76-61 QUARTER FINAL LOSS TO TOP-SEEDED VERMONT
The Retrievers hung in with the Catamounts until early in the second half. UMBC took its final lead, as senior guard Rob Gogerty capped an 8-1 run with a jumper to give the Retrievers a 21-20 advantage at the mark of the first half. But UVMís Alex Jensen and Sorrentine hit treys on the next two possessions and the Catamounts would never look back.
Freshman guard Brian Hodges, who scorched UNH for 28 points in UMBCís first round win, led UMBC with 14 points, but he managed to hit just 2 of 7 from behind the arc. Sophomore guard Chris Pugh was the other Retriever in double figures with 11 points on 4 of 4 shooting.
