Classic Rewind!?: Men's Basketball Welcomes Hartford on Saturday in Rematch of 2008 America East Title Game
UMBC (7-8, 1-3 America East) tries to re-establish its home court dominance as they host the Hartford Hawks (6-11, 2-1) in a rematch of last year’s America East title game. The game can be heard on the new FOX1370 Sports Radio (www.fox1370.com) with Troy Green and Paul Mittermeier on the call. UMBCRetrievers.tv provides live video streaming of the game.
RETRIEVER UPDATE: UMBC scored a season-low 47 points in a 65-47 setback at UNH on Wednesday. The Retrievers held a 19-14 lead at the midpoint of the first half, but scored just five points in the next 10 minutes and never regained the lead. Senior forward Darryl Proctor just earned a share of the America East Player of the Week honors. He leads UMBC with 19.3 ppg and 8.9 rpg and is averaging 24.7 ppg in his last four outings.
HAWK UPDATE: Hartford has protected home court in league play, with wins over Albany and Maine and ironically, tallied just 47 points, in a loss to UNH in Durham. Senior guard Jaret von Rosenberg (13.7 ppg) scored 24 points two games ago vs. Yale, then tallied 26, with five assits and no turnovers in the 76-71 win on Wednesday over Maine. 2007-08 First-Team All AEC guard Joe Zeglinksi is out for the season after tearing a tendon in his left ankle.
Who’s Up Next: The Retrievers head out for an eight-day road trip, beginning at Vermont on Monday, and followed by Boston University on Thursday, and finishing in Albany on Sunday.
