Men's Basketball Opens Busy Week at Hartford on Tuesday Evening

RETRIEVER UPDATE: UMBC (1-3, 2-14) had no answers for Stony Brook at the RAC Arena on Jan. 11, as the Seawolves shot nearly 59 percent from the floor in a 89-49 victory. It was the third consecutive loss for UMBC and the third straight game in which they allowed 89 points. Junior guards Ryan Cook (14 pts.) and Brian Neller combined for 27 of UMBC's 49 points as the hosts did not reach the 33 percent shooting mark.
HAWK UPDATE: Hartford (2-2, 2-14) started the season at 0-13, but has won two of its last three contests in league play. UH used a second-half surge to defeat winless Binghamton, 69-57, on Sunday at the BU Events Center. Senior guard Andres Torres has led the charge, leading UH in all four America East games, averaging 16.5 points in that span. He had a season-high 27 in the 56-49 win over UNH. Hartford attempts 24.8 3-point field goals per game.
WHO'S UP NEXT: UMBC has a quick turnaround, as they return to the RAC Arena to face Binghamton on Thursday, Jan. 19.
