MEN'S BASKETBALL DROPS THIRD STRAIGHT, LOSES TO QUINNIPIAC 87-66
Hamden, CT - The Retriever men's basketball team suffered two key injuries as they fell, 87-66, to league-rival Quinnipiac this afternoon at Burt Kahn Court Center. Quinnipiac (10-9, 5-6 NEC), hit 8 of 10 three-pointers in the first period to enter halftime with a 48-28 lead, and the Retrievers would not be able to recover, dropping their record to 6-14 overall and 4-7 in the Northeast Conference.
UMBC senior guard Justin Wilson played only two minutes, as he suffered from a knee injury at the game's start. At the halftime buzzer, sophomore Rob Gogerty would join Wilson in the sidelines, as he also sustained an ankle injury. Both guards need x-rays to determine their status for the remainder of the season.
In the game, the Retrievers led 7-5 early in the first half, but the Bobcats would explode for a 17-2 run, to take over the lead, 22-9, just five minutes into the contest. For the game, Quinnipiac shot 59.3%, and 65% (13-20) in three-point goals, while UMBC shot 40.7% overall, and just 17.6% (3-17) from the arc.
UMBC was led by sophomore Andrew Feeley, who had 19 points and 10 rebounds. Junior Kareem Washington was also in double figures with 11.
