RETRIEVER UPDATE: Despite another solid second half effort, UMBC fell a point short at Stony Brook, falling 56-55 on Saturday. Matt Spadafora tied the game at 55-all on a 3-pt. field goal with 48 seconds left, but SBU hit one of two free throws with 18 ticks remaining. Spadafora’s short bank was a touch strong just before the horn. Darryl Proctor led UMBC with 20 points.
TERRIER UPDATE: Boston University has won five straight games as they complete a three-game road trip at UMBC. After the Jan 22. double overtime win over UMBC, the Terriers have recorded double-digit wins at Maine (73-62) and Hartford (72-47). Wings John Holland (18.0) and Corey Lowe (17.7) are the most productive 1-2 punch in the America East this season. Holland led the way with points vs. the Hawks on Saturday.
Who’s Up Next: UMBC gets to catch its breath a bit, after seven games in 17 days, as they are off until Saturday, when they play at evening contest at Maine.
