MEN'S BASKETBALL CANNOT FIND RANGE, FALLS AT TOWSON, 60-55
The Retrievers have failed to shoot at the 40 percent level in any of its first three games. UMBC could not solve
UMBC got a first half spark from freshman guard Jay Greene, who came off the bench and hit three consecutive three point goals to give the Retrievers a 20-15 lead with 10:26 to play in the first half. But
The Retrievers quickly cut the gap to 32-31 by scoring the first two baskets of the second half, but the Tigers went on a 15-5 surge to lead 47-36 with 9:32 to play. UMBC made one final charge as freshman guard Tom Young banked in a three-point attempt to cut the deficit to 55-50 with 1:37 to play. But
Senior forward Jerrell Dinkins was the lone Retriever in double figures, scoring a career high 13 points on six of 12 shooting. Greene did not score after his first half flurry and finished with nine points, while sophomore forward Rashad Bilal came off the bench to score eight points.
The Retrievers return to action on Sunday when they travel to Loyola. Game time is 6:00 p.m.
