RETRIEVER UPDATE: SR G Ryan Cook scored 18 of his game-high 22 points in the second half and JR C Brett Roseboro posted career highs with 19 points and 10 rebounds as the host Retrievers (2-5) never trailed in a 66-62 victory over Towson (3-4) on Dec. 1. The win snapped a four-game slide for UMBC and gave the Retrievers (2-5) a two-game winning streak over their beltway rivals.
PATRIOT UPDATE: George Mason gave a great effort, but came up just short in a 69-62 setback vs. Maryland in the BB&T Classic held at the Verizon Center on Dec. 2. GMU had won three consecutive games, including a narrow 48-45 home triumph over Boston U. on Nov. 24. Sharrod Wright is the lone Patriot averaging in double figures, but the junior guard is at a robust 15.1 points per game. Mason also had a home victory over Virginia (63-59) to open the season.
Who’s Up Next: UMBC will play for the fourth time in eight days on Thurs., Dec. 6 when they host the American University Eagles. Tip time at the RAC Arena is 7:00 p.m.
